Amazing sketch pad


I love this app. Thank you guys for creating and expanding on it. Started with the beta and am super impressed with the updates. I'm not a huge expert on music theory and this gives me a great jumpstart into creating more music faster. One suggestion would be to find a way to export the wav/MP3 file so I can chop it up in ableton. Also- look into a lower latency on the "record your own midi" section. It's amazing though and seriously you guys made me want to produce music again after a long dry spell. Thank you! - Ryan

Great start but needs work

I love odesi. I use it on my desktop as well as using the captain chords plugins. I wish this app would allow you to use odesi like the desktop version including editing midi notes, adding melodies etc. I would even pay for this if it was a premium feature. I'm always in the go and to be able to pull out my iPhone and start making and completing an idea so that when I arrive at the studio I can drive right into logic would be amazing.
Another feature id love to see is being able to use odesi within GarageBand as an audio unit.

Thanks for the review and feedback- I really appreciate you taking the time to share your ideas! I can definitely see how these features would be useful. I’ve just added to our Wishlist and we will keep in mind for future development plans for sure.

I Love Odesi!!


This app is much easier to use and get a song going on iOS than on the Mac app which is web dependent. It's definitely better on a touch screen. Only draw back is that it only seems to be able to do 16 bars on the current iOS iteration of the app. Hope that changes soon so I can create full songs on the iPad. It would also be great to have a random song generator (truly random so that it's unique, but still in harmony).
