  • Amazing App for Musicians!

    By VGSG Music
    I have a sample library business and I’ve wanted to bring my Sounds to iOS for a long time. The soundfont format is old but simple to use and with BS-16i, I have successfully made around 4 SF2 soundfont libraries to be used with BS-16i! Bismark and I have a great relationship and I look forward to bringing more soundfonts to be used with this incredible app!

  • Cubasis issue

    By Biznatchio
    When I go to use the bs in cubasis as a multi TimbrAl instrument ... whether I load my own scenes in or not. Whenever I press stop in a project. The bs resets itself yo factory. No matter what I do. In cubasis. Latest iPad latest iOS. Fix that and I’ll buy every upgrade you have this thing sounds amazing.
  • Instant 5 stars with BM3 fix

    By Strizbiz
    This is now a 5 Star app in my book, great job.
  • Can’t use as AU in BM3

    By Quazzemodo
    This app holds a lot of potential.. if only it could actually work without crashing ... I’ve uploaded a lot of Soundfonts into mine only to be disappointed because the app constantly crashes in Beatmaker 3
  • no midi out to Audiobus midi chain when playing midifile

    By first_fiddle
    Playing the on-screen keyboard produces sound from SampleTank or the Ravenscroft piano app, but when a midifile is imported and played the keys in the on-screen bs-16i image move up and down, but no sound appears. I'd report this to the developer confidentially, but an hour or so of searching the website shows no email address for bug reports and/or technical queries, or forum, or anything... and no support page... just Facebook and Twitter links (yuck!). This is a beautiful app, and very solid, so I'm puzzled why there's no real bug-report path for purchasers! Almost a year ago, (12/21/2016) "zavier11" reported a similar problem on the Apple App Store (probably for lack of a bug-reporting mechanism). There seems to have been no reply. I'd love to get a reply, but there's no way I'll post an email address here!! Four stars for quality, despite the fact that the app refuses to do one of the main things I bought it for!!
  • I can't access the "INBOX"! HELP!
