The sound won't work 9 out of 10 times turning it on. A message pops up saying this is a known issue for iPod touch, but I'm using an iPad 2.
I would give this a 5/5 for originality but it loses major points for recording quality. The samples come out sounding 8-bit, which sometimes is actually pretty cool, but not for every sound. If there were a way to hook up an external microphone or record directly via line-in then this would be a 5 star app, hands down. As well, if there were a simple quantize function for loop recording, this would be a six out of five app.
Still, it's a very cool app and despite it's shortcomings.
Smule's creations are always one step beyond the rest!
For a teacher of special needs students this is a great concept building tool. It lets students virtually experience how something sounds and looks. I plan to have them come up with a summer time board and an at school board for our first combined efforts.
I'm not being successful with the "seamless" MadPad/Twitter conncetion and can't wait until it works as well as the other Smule tools.
Your creativity always delights. Thanks!
Take samples (with photos) of sounds around you or by you, then arrange them in a grid, and tap to make a new kind of music. You can also download some wonderful sound sets that other people have made.
This app has no right to be quite so fun!
