Ratings and Reviews
Good app for making jam tracks ...
I didn't have any problems learning how to use the app. If anything, my mistake was thinking it was harder to use than it is. Works great. I play blues so, unless I am missing something, it would be better if I could substitute a keyboard for the rhythm guitar in Texas Blues Crunch, etc. I like some rhythm in the backing. Just would like a little more flexibility about what kind of rhythm. Not complaining though. After trying all kinds of looping programs, this is the one that I use to practice to. Great job guys. Looking forward to more functions and sophistication. I, for one, would not hesitate to pay a bit more for an upscale version. Thanks.
Great Practice Tool
Use it almost every day to provide backup band to practice blues piano.
Has potential to be great, but...
At first glance this app seems to be guitar players dream. Well produced jam tracks with the ability to edit progressions and apply different feels to the included tracks. Unfortunately, it all falls apart under its weight when you try to actually edit and create your own tracks. It's horrible, un intuitive, and unresponsive control scheme begs to ask the question who designed this? And how did anyone with a brain decide to sign off on such a clunky anti user design?
Tap the end of a bar to reveal the arrows. Try to shrink or extend the length of a chord? Good luck. Try to get the player to play anything other than a two bar phrase? Good luck.
One day someone will release an music accompaniment app that actually delivers with features and ease of use. This is not it. Unless you have the time to fiddle with it's broken design, I would pass. I'd rather spend my time practicing than screaming at an app that is fundamentally broken from an interface perspective.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
