Grateful for Hum
I have been a hard core, verbally supportive user of Songwriter HD for gong on 4 years. I talked countless songwriters into buying it, and now, unfortunately, the developers sold it to someone who is not updating and has no intention of updating. Getting notifications from Apple and Dropbox Songwriter HD will soon be useless. I get no response from anyone when I look for answers.
Thankfully there is an heir to the throne with Hum. Does everything it should do and everything it claims to do. This is the new songwriter's dream and my new go-to tool. The price absolutely can't be beat for all it does. I am very picky about the app I use for writing my songs, and believe me, if I have suggestions for improvement, I hound the company. For now, though, Hum is on the right track. I hope they plan on sticking around. It says this is iPhone only, but it works on my iPad Pro, it just looks weird. All my support is here. If you are a songwriter in need of an app for writing, Hum is the way to go.
I really do love this app!
This has become my main songwriting app. Beautiful design, and I love the way you can sort songs and record while seeing your lyrics. Super indispensable! Everything on it is perfect, EXCEPT for two tiny suggestions I have.
I really wish I could have the option of playing an instrumental track on my phone speakers WHILE recording my vocals over it in the app. Kind of like how Snapchat allows you to play a song and record video in a snap without pausing or stopping the song. I wish I could play a track through speakers and record with the mic at the same time so I don’t have to use a separate device to play the track while I record vocals on my phone.
Second, I would love if the app made its own way to create a profile and have storage for the song files. When I try to back up my songs using Dropbox within the app, it freezes or crashes.
Otherwise, this is a handy little app and very with the $2-3 I spent!
