No AudioBus support.


Yea. I get that this is a gimmicky app. But why is there seriously no form of audio routing support. AudioBus integration is a must before this would deserve anything more than one star. I would even take AudioCopy or JACK support. The creators have no intention of letting you use the app as a tool. They just want you to buy a bunch of crappy songs through the in app purchases. This app will remain an overpriced toy until a real implementation of audio routing app to app is added. Smule is one of the biggest money grubbing offenders that offer no real support for any of their apps. Just look at the version history for this app. Pretty much every single update is an ad for selling some crappy new song they added or a warning that some past bug is still not resolved (sometimes spanning over 5 or 6 updates before they fix it). Don't buy this app and don't buy anything from Smule. This completely backwards way of treating your customer base is disgusting and shouldn't be helped continue by giving them your money. It's a mistake I made and one I hope you won't make.

Playback After Recording


Hi, I am a fan of T-Pain and I love what he does with his music and I love using his app. I recorded a few songs from the beats list and they turned out fine when I did them a long time ago but recently when I use the app and I record a song and play it back, my voice goes faster than the beat itself and that was not how recorded it. I always stay on beat but when I play it back the app just starts to play it back in a bad way. I think it's because I recorded the same beat so many times. I tried restarting the app and turning off my Ipod but it doesnt seem to work. I dont want to delete this app because I know that it would delete the songs I made so I am asking if you guys/girls can fix this problem for me please and also can you make the songs we make be shared via Itunes so I can keep the songs in my music library on Itunes or on my Ipod. Thank You.

What happened to this app?


I bought this app years ago because it was powered by "Antares" the same company that makes the auto tune the big boys( and girls) use. Now it's powered by "the t-pain effect". I'm glad I have the original version on my old phone. I would recommend not updating. Did Antares realize they let out a too powerful version and it was cutting into software sales? Did the Antares contract expire? Whatever it is this app has suffered for it. I'm all about giving musicians as much money as possible for quality. Also for anyone using this app in a studio setting please realize that a few milliseconds of latency exists between your voice and the recording. This can be easily fixed with multitrack editing software. All digital has latency and it takes a lot of hardware(money) to reduce it.
This is a powerful and fun app but not as good as it once was. Do not update from the original version you will be mad.
