  • It's very good.

    By Ben E1101
    Really think outside the box. Incredible for live mixing. Clearly intended for EDM but is applicable for anything. You have to try and push this app to its limit to fully appreciate it. iPhone version way better than iPad version. It renders recordings/exports at better quality than a 6s can possibly put out. It's a great app.
  • Must get

    By 4Mus!c
    Epic sounds just a little restraint because of not a lot of free sound packs
  • Killed my Battery!

  • Good stuff!

    By alambert83
    This is great for someone like me who just wants to mess around in their free time and try to learn something. I'm having an absolute blast! I'm sure if you know what you're doing you can get even more out of it. For a noob like me it's an awesome way to dip your toes into the world of beat making. Can't put it down!
  • Almost perfect

    By TheKid_Himself
    When you import samples the playback speed doesn't reflect file BPM. So your samples speed up or slow down. Other wise the app is great.
