Great App But Very Limited

I downloaded this app cause I wanted to see what it did. It was actually very good! It was a combination of Loop Drum Pads 24, beats, Garageband and your other apps! I could create psytrance, synth-pop, trap, and retro waves, some of my favorite genres that I couldn't do on any other platform before. But, like your other apps, this is very limited... I am very disappointed due to the fact that you have to pay $2 to get a different pack of drums or bass or synths or leads... I know you want money but most people don’t have that kind of money. I suggest, to keep both you and other people happy, use the Drum Pads 24 system. You could charge people ”coins” to buy them... In order to get coins, you could buy them for a certain amount depending on how much you want, or you could watch an advertisement to get coins. Ads give people tons of money, so you'll have even more money than what you're doing right now! People won’t have to pay money to get a new pack and you'll be happy with the ads! But that’a just a suggestion... But I wanna do more on this. I don’t have money so it's very irritating... Hope you understand... Keep it up! :)

Thanks for the Fun App!!

Thanks for adding the new synth ! Since the beginning GB had allot of yet unrealized potential, serving more as a fun and engaging introduction for users to the play around with the basics of EDM. Now (thankfully) the developers seem to have decided what direction they would take GB in, moving toward making it a “real”instrument (not a toy, they have begun releasing new synths and offering more varied content! IMO, GB is now showing signs of what it could be: A very easy to use, yet powerful instrument for IOS.
With continued developer support and refinement, and an ear for user feedback, Gb could realize its potential, achieving enough real depth and versatility to be fully integrated into any producers workflow!
Really great way to get an idea down when on the go! Works well with Novations other apps Launchpad and Bloc Waves - you can really do allot with this thing! Hours of fun with a simple interface - Potentially GB could be a serious music maker in it's own right for the iOS -Keep up the good stuff, steady new content and excellent support!

Love this app!

I love all of this company's apps! I perform live with Launchpad and Groovebox on a regular basis, and have recommended them all to several fellow musicians.
Thank you so much for adding Chromatic Mode to Groovebox!
Speaking of Groovebox, I also have one suggestion and one request: First, when muting/unmuting tracks, could there be a way to either set a fade in/out time, or have the delay be post-signal, so that the tracks can come in and out smoothly instead of an abrupt cut off?
Second, I would personally really get a lot of use out of the ability to have non-4/4 sequence lengths. In addition to the occasional song in 3, 5, 7, etc. I often like to create a dance groove with maybe a synth arpeggio and/or a percussion track that continuously move across the bar line. I know it's not the most common user need but there are some of us who like to break out of the box, and I love using your platforms so it would mean a lot!
Thanks again for all you guys do.
