    If you don’t like the app, you don’t know how to use it which isn’t hard to find out how to🤷🏾‍♀️

    I F*^*^NG think that you And whomever built this application, should beyond a reasonable doubt!!!.. , win any award for an app of this surpasses all and any other app (apps) that are presumedly in the same genre
  • Why does this app LAG so badly?

    By m.e_e.k
    I’ve spent a decent amount of time and money upgrading each instrument and using this app to create some amazing songs, it really blows all other music apps out of the water. I mean other than maybe the actual moogsynth apps. I totally loved it. . .untill The app continually kept getting a lag or delay while doing anything. From playing keys to simply tapping between sections. And I’m talking about a delay or lag of anywhere from 5 seconds to 24 seconds!! It’s gotten so bad that I haven’t opened the app in a few weeks now. Please! Pretty please! I’m begging you on my hands and knees please. FIX THIS BUG! Oh and maybe add sum heavy guitar distortion effects ??? Too much to ask for? 🤔😅.
  • I like ; I don't like

    By dataBANG
    I like the sitermplicity, instruments, compactness, cheap IAP. I don't like the sequencer note editing(moving notes), inability to share project (no cloud) between devices. Making to the sequencer editing easier to move note selections across bars will make the app more approachable as a creative tool. There, I said it.
  • Great app!

    By whdhcbejjxjejf
    I recommend this app to any musician starting to make beats. Only downside is that I wish there was more real instruments like piano or violin and less electronic sounds
  • Amplify’s best!

    By SojaDub
    This App is good, very! I view it as a portable sketch pad, with really great sound packs. The samples are great and the app is wonderful in delivering various sound tweaks. Its really fun, and the sections you write are easily exported for use as midi or audio. Very fun times for a daily commuter!
  • No automation!??

    By rustlingleaves
    Sounds are great. Interface is pretty nice. But no automation kills this dead in the water. I’d gladly pay to unlock all the extra parameters and sound packs, if you draw/record automation.
