Customer Reviews

Friendly format, great for basic ideas

If you get a melody in your head at some point in the day and don't want to forget it this is a great starter sequencer to layer your work and transfer it to a larger composition program.


This app does nothing. You cannot do anything. Plus this app is so boring. My opinion, do not get this app. There is this weird voice on it that you can't change. 😁😱 . You can't change anything on it. It is all the same beat no matter what. This app is so boring. 😡😡😡


Probably good for electronic music, but not if you're trying to play out a melody. The default is set on funky electronic beats
