Used to be better
I loved this app when I first started using it, but then there were a few updates. After the updates, it messed up the audio. Now I can't hear my piano without headphones. Also, I find that the biggest problem is that I have to reload the entire app to play a different recording that I originally had muted before. I am not giving up on this app because I think this can be fixed and I honestly enjoy using Music Studio when it works properly.
BEST APP HANDS DOWN!! 10/10
I was not expecting much when I downloaded it, but it surprised me big time!!! MIDI support, large instrument range, and many other tools, my only complaint is it is a bit expensive, try around the 5$ range, It just is a bit pricy for a audio studio app
This app is really great! The one thing I really don't like about it is that you cannot save your tracks! I think that this app should at least have a limit to the amount of tracks you can save. Otherwise, the app is really great and you can make some pretty good music!
