Great for capturing song ideas on the go!
It's everything that I wanted!
For some reason I had the hardest time finding an app that would let me easily beatbox rhythms and hum melodies into a sequencer as a way of sketching out song ideas. Well this is the app that will do that for you - look no further!
Not only that, but you can add and automate effects over your audio loops. It's great! Reminds me of when I used to use Sonic Foundry's ACID back in the day, except it's better because you can record into it and have it in your pocket at all times when inspiration strikes. I start with studio.M, and later flesh out the track on a full DAW at home based on the ideas I captured here.
- I found that creating a template track with just a kick drum and shaker makes for a better metronome to spit groove to. You can duplicate from this template when you start a new project. I made one for Dance, one for Dubstep, etc.
- To add new loops you have to tap and hold, then place the audio clip where you want it on the timeline. If you let up too soon, you could end up placing it somewhere you don't mean to.
- Upgrading to the full version for $5 allows you to add up to 8(?) track lanes and also export your project.
I've done a lot of a Cappella recording with the full upgrade. I've been using this app for about 6 or so months now, and it's pretty good. It does have a learning curve, and I had to search the online forum to figure out how to export and and do a lot, but now it's intuitive to me. If you're looking to make straight beats, this is NOT the best app to get, but it's really good to get a quick sketch for a song, and if you're in to a Cappella, you should definitely get this for that quick arranging idea. If you don't know how to use this app, google the forum for it and learn. I've had only minimal problems with it, so...yeah. A lot of people ask how to turn the metronome off, you just hold the "record" button, and a menu will pop up to give you that option.
Does exactly what I need it to do!
Got this app and the upgrade yesterday and I love it. I needed an app where I could simply and quickly record my acoustic guitar and then overdub 4 part vocal harmonies on top of it so that I can easily share parts with bandmates. There is no instructions but the interface is pretty intuitive. I was up and running in no time flat. User reviews who give this app a bad review because its not what they thought it was (that's the app's fault?) or because they can't figure out how to turn off the "clicking" (it's called a metronome folks), should generally be ignored.
Looking forward to updates. The only big feature that I would love to have right now is to be able to import a song from my iTunes library as one of the tracks.
