Great Multiplayer Fun!

Great app for a few people to sit around and make music on an iPad. There is a nice mix of sounds included, and the instruments (especially the drums) are fun to play.


1) The two gutars' chords seem to be tied together, i.e. if the first guiter selects it's first chord, the same happens to the 2nd guitar.
2) The keyboard is too limited - I would hope for at least one more key (to give a full ocatave) and/or some ability to go up & down an octave.
3) Seems most of the songs I'm thinking of have a 5 chord progression - I'd love to see one more chord button!

...and that's about it. The only thing else I could think of to add on this would be more samples/sounds, but the included ones are fine.

Not a serious tool, but definately a lot of fun to be had here for the price!

Lots of potential

This app is a lot of fun, but it needs a little more work to really shine. The looper is very basic and difficult to work with. There's no way to turn off tracks that you've already recorded, and it's difficult to get the tracks to loop cleanly. Also, I'd like to be able to run the metronome while looping without recording the sound of the metronome into the loop. Also, there needs to be a way to use more than 4 chords per guitar, and user defined chords would be great. That being said, it's fun to play around with, but a few tweaks could really make it something special.

A quick way to bang out ideas

Rockmate does a good job for very straight forward, simplified rock composition. I hope to see Rockmate updates for iOS 5 in the future...... And maybe core midi out, or midi file export, or even audiobus. :) maybe?
