Ratings and Reviews

Nice design but very buggy


The erase button doesn't work consistently at all, seems to erase whenever it feels like it. Also every time I record using the keyboard, several notes, though audible when I played them, will not be audible upon playback of the recorded pattern, making the entire recording feature useless. Also it would be extremely helpful if there were a note preview option for hearing the notes as you place them. Would also be great if you could select multiple measures at a time for copy, paste, or delete. Can't say I'll be using the app at all until at least those bugs are fixed. Hope they get fixed, it's a really cool concept.

Great app coming along nicely

Love the new slicer update.
Keep up the great work.

Not for me


Firstly, I liked the concept of this but there were several things I wanted to be able to do within this app but could not find any way to do them, such as change the music scale. And where's the mixer? And, how about a tutorial within the app that goes into more detail than the cartoon cat when you first open the app? After that opening walk-thru of the basic functions, it seems you're on your own to figure it all out. Based on the 5-star glowing reviews, I was expecting much, much more.
