No automation???

Why not?!?

This makes it not a full on experience and CRIPPLES an otherwise excellent product!

Also, can we have a "Save" button, instead of just having any change you make saved? Ive lost a lot of great beats because it will open on the last project, and I will create something new, which will automatically overwrite the previous one, unless I tell it to "new project".

Every music app has a save feature, this just assumes whatever changes you make as saved. Terrible method....


I hate to say this, cause this app isn't really all that bad, but every time I use it, I like it less.

I was quite excited to see an update finally arrive, but bummed that it didnt really change much, or add any real features. Audiobus is nice, as is In App Audio. 12 new drums is like getting the interior of your car detailed, when you actually need an oil change.

Can we have automation? Can we have multiple effects?
Can we have an easier, more user friendly method of saving??

Am I missing something?

Yes, I was missing something. Upon further investigation it seems there was, indeed, an "Audio Export" button. So, now I raised the rating from 3 to 4 stars because, 1) yes there are 99 pads but a lot of them are worthless and 2) Unless I'm missing something, once again, it seems you cannot adjust multiple effects. Meaning, when put the tab on "Delay" and put the little circle in the bottom left corner, for example, and then I go on the "Compression" tab and for that effect I want to put the circle in the top right corner, well that not only takes away the "Delay" effect, but when I go back to the "Delay" tab the circle is where I put it on the "Compression" tab, causing me to lose my place. (I learned to screen shot everything once I have it how I like it, but that does not solve the problem).

Pads lag if not restarted before use

Everything works great including the pads, which are vital to an app like this, but they start to lag if the app isn't restarted. Also needs import, fills, and a TB-303. Had to go back to iMaschine because of this. Also needs the option to turn off quantization.
