Customer Reviews

Needs An Update, Unfortunately Still On Hold

This app deserves a 4-star review. The iPad version deserves a 5-star review.
The DM-1 has been a solid facet in my music making and it's been nothing but amazing. It sounded incredible and was very simple to program an entire song, using that amazing interface.

Sadly, since iOS 8's release, this app would rightfully earn a 1 or 2-star review. There's a big issue with the pan (as well as various clicks, distorted blurbs, and what-is-this-even?) and its rendered this even less useful than those bottom shelf drum apps available.
Even Fingerlab's communicative response has been minimal since late September (last I heard it would be hopefully fixed by "mid-October")

However, we must not slam this app with impulsive 1-star reviews. This really is a wonderful app, WHEN ITS WORKING. So until then, we can only wait.

As excruciating as it may be.

Please add landscape mode..and fix the sound

Please add landscape mode to this. Maybe as a option in settings or something to change the look to landscape. That would be perfect. The sound is horrible! Did you guys even listen and test it out before releasing this? This is unacceptable from a company like you guys. I expected more. Please fix these issue.

We've been patient.

I'm still giving your app 3 stars because it's amazing. A bonafide multipurpose drum machine that syncs with Garage Band via Audiobus that fits in the palm of your hand? Unreal. Problem is this bug or glitch or whatever. We want to use your 5 star app again. Please fix this. We've been patient.
