Fails on iPad Pro
My copies of SessionBand Acoustic and SessionBand Piano fail to load completely or function at all when installed on my iPad Pro.
I purchased the SessionBand BigBundle as well to see if the ‘newer’ version of Acoustic would work - but it didn’t. In fact, none of the SessionBand apps in the bundle work at all on my iPad Pro. I’m running IOS 9.3.1. I’ve deleted and reinstalled Acoustic and Piano several times without success. I’ve emailed the developer twice on their feedback address - but haven’t heard back from them. I recommend that you not purchase any SessionBand apps until they are updated to run on the latest IOS and iPads.
This app along with all the Sessionband apps are great! I use them every day in my music creation. The new updates are pretty cool too. In the future it would be nice to see the chord selection increased (it's nice now) and the ability to let a cord ring out longer than one measure. Overall I give them 5 stars.
Worked great until...
Suddenly it won't open....downloaded it twice and it won't open....do not buy until they fix it to adjust to your latest operating system...
