Great sound, app needs a little work

I love the sound and have been an Aphex user for years (I currently use the Big Bottoms Acoustic Exciter in my guitar pedal line-up). App needs some help. I upgraded demo to studio but it still says demo and would charge me again if I bought studio on App Store. Also, it will not pause or play on lock screen. It will advance or recede using arrows but pause and play buttons don't work. VERY ANNOYING! 5 stars if these are fixed.

Hi James,

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Kind Regards,

They're not answering my emails and something I thought would finally happen ... well, it may not.

It's too bad because the audio is excellent, but the ownership? Not so much.

First things first, although it appears I'm reviewing the Demo Version, I'm not. I purchased the best available version using an In-App-Purchase of approximately $3.99.

I've stood by this App for a long, long time! Want to know how long? I've updated my iPhone to 4 or 5 new models without any App updates.

I found the sound enhancement superior (a personal choice) to all the audio enhancers available and I like the fact unlike 'equalizer-type enhancers' once you set your audio preferences, it responds to and enhances ALL your music. There's no need to stop and readjust just because the song changed from Rock to Classical.

Then DW of DWV personally tells me 'updating the App was among his top priorities' (yadda yadda) 'once he got his' (yadda yadda) 'mismanaged company in order' (yadda yadda) 'because the App it was his favorite thing ever' (yadda yadda yadda).

After this big speech, he sells the App to RØDE Microphones (I'm guessing as part of the package when RØDE bought out Aphex Audio).

Well RØDE, show us what you've got!!

It's your App now and your App opened a pop-up window inside reading; Rate Audio Xciter on the App Store.

You asked, here it is. So how about this; why don't you show us all how much better RØDE Microphones is than Aphex Audio? Aphex's high-point was the creation (not support) of this App, so it should be a 'piece of cake'!!

Wants me to pay twice !!!!

I purchased this app sometime back, yes purchased. Reviewed the free version, and payed for the upgrade. Now it wants me to pay again. What kind of scam is that. Nothing said the upgrade was for a limited time. So mad I deleted the app. I don't care how well it works, not paying twice for it
