Just got the "full" version last night...was impressed with the trial version, so went for it...played around for three hours before sleep time, then so far today, about three hours...seems there Are techno snobs out there who wouldn't be satisfied with a complete Pro Tools HD studio and a full, live orchestra sitting in front of them...I'm not one of those...I've been making music and experimenting with sound/recording since 1967. I have had the best and worst of equipment/technology...this is the 1st "app" I have ever rated...that said...using creativity, imagination and talent...if you can't make great music with this "app", maybe you should re-consider what you're doing...bottom line...this is a cool thing, with cool instrument sounds, nice layout, not over complicated, and ready to add inspiration and dimension to any of your multitrack adventures. I recommend the use of pre-amp etc. for the full enjoyment effect. That's my two cents...Thanks!
Brings back memories
This app is how I started making music back in 2011. I made so many songs on this app I'm pretty much the master of this app! I love this app cause it reminds me of 2012.. But that is one big problem. It looks exactly the same and sounds exactly the same. They really really need to update it to keep up with music now days. I work with fl studio now as a music producer making rap beats and I can say this app does not have up to date sounds with 2016 music. Really needs better and newer sounds and really needs a look update. Looks exactly the same as 4 years ago. They need more effects to and way more sounds. Once that's done I will be happy. But still love this app because it started me out in my music career.
Powerful yet not overly complicated
My review heading says it all. I've seen many apps that are so complex, it's a wonder anybody can make any music with them, but with this app you can create some pretty impressive sounds (check out the "Building An Orchestra" video by Xewton) without feeling like you need to pull your hair out, or go to school to be a rocket scientist first. To me, this is a level or two above Garageband - not so much in the learning curve but in the variety of available sounds. This is a highly recommended app to learn the art of iOS recording and music creation. My one complaint is that many of the instruments sound very unrealistic, otherwise I would give this 5 stars. Also recommended if you like this app is Looptical, although it has a little more of a learning curve.
