Ratings and Reviews
Great FX app! A must-have.
Great UI, excellent sound! Gave it 1 star previously because it didn’t work in BeatMaker3, but after updating Beatmaker it now works fine, so was the fault with Beatmaker. Back to 5-stars!
Gotta get good
This is a hidden gem among iOS musicians. It’s pretty spot on and it’s potent. There are a few quirks but it’ll hopefully come together in good time.
Keep it updated
Lots of potential
