Nice overall but could use a couple of things
This is a fun new instrument but it could use a couple features to make it totally rock. First it would be nice to adjust the attack and release of the sample playing. It would be great if the note you input played to the next one if you set it that way. Second it would be great to have some sort of swing feature. The timing feels a little locked to one setting right now and swing would help mix it up a bit. Finally, an intelligent randomizer would be cool. I always find instruments like this can kick am idea in a new direction if they have a cool randomizer. Overall solid but with a few more additions this could be great, like a $5 yamaha tenori-on.
Got to give it a 10
Got to give it a 10 for ease of use..It's packed full of features but it is somewhat of a jack of all trades master of none. Loops can be as long as 16 measures is kind of :O You begin to want a proper marqee. But the loop/play button does the job. they did a pretty good job including samples, nice variety in drums. once i got my own sounds in things began to rock pretty hard. wouldn't mind some MIDI syncronization.
My son has already made funky music with it!
I was intrigued by the elegant interface, and I'd been looking for a music making app that isn't just techno. My son put together a little song in minutes, and it's still stuck in my head. I like the way the grid responds to touches. We enjoyed it so I hope my review helps get it some more exposure.
