MY TAKE ON THE APP:
This app is a fresh take on how a DAW/Portable Production Studio should work. I really like the workflow but it is different. The main screen is set up like 16 drum pads. On each pad you could have assigned a drum sound but there could also be a synth, bass or other melodic sound assigned to that pad. Once you tap on the pad and select the Pitch button on the left you then get a keyboardist interface that allows you to play different pitch’s.
There is also a volume button that allows you to set the volume by interacting with the 16 pads – pad 1 is super soft and 16 is loud.
The one disappointing part of this app is that there are not as many sounds included as I would like to see. Other synth/DAW type apps like this give me many more options. I feel a bit cheated on that side of things. There are options for IAP’s but come on UVI… give us a bigger base set along with the main purchase!
The sounds are absolutely great though, depending on your style of music – don’t expect band and orchestra types of sounds! This is for sure more focused on synth/urban/dance/pop/hip hop styles. Here is a screenshot of the sound loading screen to give you an idea…. The three on top are my sounds (and I am pretty sure I bought the Urban and Atlanta sound sets. The ones underneath the user library are all IAP’s at the majority of the prices being $4.99 – $7.99.

CONCLUSION:
For the Intro price of $4.99 this app is very much worth that price so grab it NOW! IT comes from UVI – they have been around for a while now on the desktop developing some awesome sound sets there.
