Ratings and Reviews
Fails for Basic Strumming Patterns
Sorry, gotta be honest. Fails at BASIC strumming patterns. Everything is "Mr. Fancy-Pants". Only one acoustic pattern even comes close to a basic "Boom-chuck". (eg; needed for Bluegrass, country, folk songs, cowboy, traditional, old-time, etc) Should have developed basic first, then fancy-pants. Gotta walk before you can run. This dude was "showing off". Gotta get your ego outta this thing and provide something useful, really. Extremely dissapointed, waste of money!!!!
Audiobus does not work
Please fix Audiobus, since I cannot export any loop. I tried wth many importing apps.
Great foundation, needs some further work
The loop samples in this app are great, and they are the strongest selling point. Unfortunately, you can not change the tempo (best I could tell), which was a significant disappointment. Also, the loops are all 4/4 - there are no 3/4 loops or other rhythms at all.
The interface is workable, though somewhat clunky, and sometimes unresponsive for no good reason. I would have loved an interface more like Band-in-a-box / iRealb, but I understand the logic behind this approach.
Some more development on this and it could be outstanding.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
