WOLF IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING. My experience is similar to the others. This App, at first glance, seems bland and uninspiring, but its a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It’s the very essence of UNDERSTATEMENT – like Braun or B&O. No flashing lights. No gimmicks. Just GREAT DESIGN and a TOTAL RETHINK as regards USABILITY.Wendy, Florence.
The backing tracks are the best imaginable and are ready in no time. They really do sound like a drummer is playing the ACTUAL SONG. I don’t know how they achieve that without knowing everything about the song. It’s uncanny. I have tried other music generation programs for getting backing tracks, with minimal success. I always give up on them at the end because they take up so much of your time and don’t sound that inspirational anyway. It’s not like that with these Song Rhythm Tracks. 30 secs tops and they sound just great. No duds. The organisation and playing of tracks aren’t mentioned much, but it’s brilliant and so understated.
You don’t need to use another player. The inbuilt player is a ‘musicians’ player – big buttons, quality speed variation which persists to your next play. Here’s another big thing that isn’t mentioned very much. You can always see the arrangement on the screen, so you know what you will be playing along to. And it’s in the musician’s language, which is just what you want. Great. I haven’t had to arrange most of my tracks as I’ve found one using the inbuilt search feature. I’ve arranged a couple, though, and it was so easy. There really isn’t anything else like this. Super simple arranging. Great sound. Total Understatement. I just love it – even on my iPod Touch! I play a lot of Latin Rhythms, and they have them all. And they sound so authentic. I recommend this App to people who care about music and sound and aren’t looking for a flashing-lights-toy but something that will satisfy them for the rest of their lives. Real Quality is rare, but this is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
