  • Powerful and stylish, still room for improvement

    By magnusxelsv
    As an iPhone Plus user who enjoys using portrait view music apps, this very attractive piece of software has become my main recorder of tracks from audiobus. The Iap sampling options make it easy to grab tracks off iCloud so I can chop a break over some of those recordings ,the ui just feels good to use and the focus on giving iPhone users a solid interface is much appreciated. However there are some odd limitations, which mostly seem related to the resampling algorithms used to keep tune and timestretch. This includes being unable to play samples melodically or pitch them individually. This is somewhat made up for by the awesome little randomizer in the slicer plus I think limitations are a good thing, but if there's anyway even just individual samples could be transposed this would be amazing. Or maybe even just one more band on the Eq haha. A really nice product regardless!
  • Easy and Fun

    Great samples
  • Great for getting ideas together very quickly

    Can’t go wrong with this one. You can very quickly put together ideas and progress very quickly into something useful. RECORD function could do with a change. Pressing Record Start to re record into an existing loop mutes the current loop before recording starts. Please allow existing loops to play to end before record begins and you have a winner 5 stars. somethings that would be very useful. In slice-mode, tapping or holding a key/pad plays that slice I would like to recommend the following 1. Tap a key/pad will play the slice Tap and hold the key/pad will continue to play thru the current slice and the rest of the sample/wave until finger is released’ At which point the current slice will continue as normal to end. Example: Tap and hold on slice 1, will play slice 1 and continue thru slice 2 as I hold and slice 3 if I am still holding. If I have reached as far as slice 3 and release my finger. Slice 3 continues to play until its end or until another key/pad is pressed. 2. Hide slices Swipe down on any pad hides that slice in the timeline bringing other slices closer together. 3. As mentioned Record mode to only mute current loop when recording begins. Currently if a loop is playing and you press record to re-record the current loop will mute before recording begins. Please correct this by allowing the current loop to finish playing to end without muting when record button is pressed
  • Nice, but not what I was looking for

    By Pikajew14
    Unfortunately this only allowed me to use samples not make my own beats, which is what I wanted
  • Could be a Five Star app.

    By Hip1756
    This App is good, but with a few added features it would be great. The EQ really needs a bypass function so you can A-B the sound with and without the EQ. It also needs to add a Q parameter because not being able to adjust the Res or Bandwidth is frustrating. More bands and modes, as well as the ability to automate would also be very welcome additions. This app could easily be a 5 Star app.
  • Awesome

  • It good

    By drustin dollyah murkanStein
    I like their sample packs
  • Good Idea, Missing Key Ingredients

    By legittristan
    This is a fun app, but needs more options for using and working with your own audio instead of stock loops and MIDI control and integration. Considering Novation manufactures MIDI controllers, one would think all of their apps would have full MIDI integration in the first iteration. Sadly, most Novation apps have very little and this one has none. Again, a fun app, but until it’s got some key features thrown in, it’s not of much worth to serious music-makers.
  • Great app but where’s audioshare

    By DaMacMaclure
    I used to be able to import many files at a time using AudioShare but now I cannot. Which means the only way to import files is to go 1 by 1 through AudioCopy, which is ridiculously tedious. 5 stars though cuz this apps fantastic.
