Not suitable for the intended purpose - requires cloud to work

Thought this might be a quick ideas sketchbook for on the go ideas but since it requires the (Cakewalk) cloud to work that renders it unsuitable for doing so compared with pretty much every other recording app or DAW on iOS where one can save ideas right on the device. ("The Cloud" = potentially insecure and unavailable in any circumstance and having an app like is rely on it defeats the object (particularly somfor audio work: online storage vs. copyright concerns etc.) ). Shame.

Now, if Cakewalk would bring Z3TA+ up to date that would be great because *that's* a fantastic app.

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback, and I have good news for you. First, we're planning a 1.0.1 update that would allow for unlimited local idea creation on your iOS device, still free and would not require the cloud. Second, we're updating Z3TA+ to fix that long-standing preset export issue.


Awesome, Easy, Fun!

I’ve made more progress and had more fun in my first use of Momentum Music than in all the repeated uses of other such apps I’ve used to date - a lot of fun!

Developer Response

We're glad you're enjoying it!
