    I love the app, but it frequently won’t open and crashes. I don’t want to erase the app and re-download, but I need the app to work better and be reliable when I have musical inspiration.
  • It’s ok for sketching an idea.

    The sounds are really good and the simplicity is great for sketching out a beat idea but the this app has no integration or accessibility with other DAWs which makes it hard to continue working on your idea. The fact it has no track out option is frustrating. You would have to record each track into your DAW one at a time. The options are, You either export the whole project to be imported only in NI Maschine if you own one) or your stuck with exporting the master out.
  • The App That Time Forgot...

    This app is good for it was intended to do: get done rough ideas for songs and tracks using quality (44.1 kHz and 16-bit? SERIOUSLY?!!?) sounds/samples. But two years or so and countless soundpacks later, I’m looking for a swing function that DOESN’T affect all 4 tracks, MIDI support for playing keyboard parts (because large fingers don’t work well on small keys), and addressing a bug that causes the app to crash after saving custom drum kits (ever since iOS 11!!). I also agree with another reviewer who mentioned that file management (as well as importing and exporting projects to something OTHER THAN MASCHINE, which is something many of us DON’T have) needs to be better and more integrated. It’s sorta “bassackwards” to develop all of these soundpacks (again...44.1 and 16?!!?) and ignore the framework and usability of the app itself. I mean, thanks for the addition of effects and all, but at this rate, NI shoulda added this app among their numerous updates and additions to their arsenal of products across the board. Maybe an iM3 wouldn’t be too much to ask these days...?

    So I went thru a real rough patch with this app, because it would never open. I have found that trying to open it while in Low Power Mode is the main culprit of the problem. If this happens, when the loading screen appears and then disappears taking you back to the home screen, quit the app, turn off Low Power Mode, and reopen the app. It should work again. Thanks! Updated a year ago, that should be enough said. You spend longer trying to open the app than actually using it; and I think it’s a great app, but this is nonsense.

    I’ve been using the app on my iPad just fine. Now that I decided to use it on my phone as well the app has started to crash multiple times and sometimes the app doesn’t open or load in order for me to use. I’ve spent money on this app and would very much do like a working app to use please
  • App won’t ever open and lost songs

    By disappointed devoted customer
    Idk what the issue is but I haven’t been able to open the app for a month! Every time I try it just shuts down. I’ve tried resetting browser database and still nothing. I tried reinstalling the app in the past to see if it would work and it deleted all my songs... I was really not happy about that. DO NOT REINSTALL THE APP if you have songs saved you will lose them all.
