Great introduction to music making

This app offers both the simplicity to allow those without any music theory knowledge or experience to jump right in and make music that sounds good. The interface is intuitive, though the individual squares can be difficult to pinpoint if your fingers are as far as mine. Even better, there are also enough tools to allow someone with more music experience to craft music as they wish, with a variety of scales, instruments and presets to play with.

While this isn't going to help you compose a symphony (or anything longer than four measures), it's plenty to make some satisfying tunes.

Pro tip: hold down over the grid itself to copy/paste the contents into other grids. This is invaluable in building loops.


Incredible, and Innovative.

I've had this little app for about 2 years now. It started off as just a fun little thing for me to download, because I am a musician and I love any and everything musical. So a music making app interested me. I never knew how fun it would be though. Something always keeps me coming back to it to create new sounds and tweak with old ones. I have the pro version and it is excellent! Sooooo much options to choose from for you to really make something that is uniquely yours. Sounds, effects, pitches, scales, tempos, etc. Highly recommend it! And please developers, keep updating the app and making improvements! 👍

Fantastic app

This app is very simple at first, but when you get into the nitty-gritty, it is a very in-depth music making medium. A gorgeous interface paired with seemingly countless well-designed preset sounds creates a pleasant experience for those who want to make quick jingles or who want to create full works of music (although I can't recommend the pro version enough). A few cons: the Instagram cover art source feature appears to be broken, as does the ringtone creator. Also I haven't quite figured out how to create a new sound based off a preset instrument, but I'll get there. 5 stars.
