A bit of a learning curve
I saw the negative reviews but my curiosity won out this time. While my love for this app is not very profound it is so far reminding me of app like Turnado or Different Drummer... it takes a little while to learn your way around it. The empty presets others complain about does not speed this process up, unfortunately. At first there was no apparent sound until I move the octave on up (it starts at the bottom which is basically not audible on iPad speakers with the init patch). Then it took me while to realize I needed to switch the LFOs and filters etc. to ACTIVE and then the magic slowly revealed itself. Same thing with the pad performance mode, you have to assign parameters first and then - a fountain of strange sounds with great potential for becoming truly bizarre. Let it be said that I have no stake in this at all but most of the complaints are not accurate. The interface is intuitive enough and I'm sure others can get a handle on this as well, but if you really don't know what you are doing and really rely on presets it might be best to stay away.

Crash City
I'm on IOS 7, and I cannot get it to run at all. No presets unless it can access their servers (what a dumb idea). So I register, and when I try to log in, it either hangs indefinitely or crashes -- take your pick. I have nearly synth and I almost always find something positive to say. I cannot find something here positive at all.

Did I just get taken along with my $7?
Ok...it's weird how this app was pulled from the store, was it prematurely released cause it is VERY buggy? Crashes all the time. Pretty much all the banks in the cloud are devoid of presets...one really only gets a smattering of them (maybe there was a cloudburst)...the finger to key to sound triggering is laggy as if paying homage to the overall goofiness of the app. The presets are kinda disappointing...pretty much poor examples. Most are attempts at novelty sound effects which have about ZERO musicality. They are a FAR cry from the soundcloud examples which, quite frankly, got me stoked about this app to begin with. Most of the presets are by themselves quirky, buggy...let alone the entirety of banks in general. It needs: -numbers on the keys for octave recognition -accessing presets is a little quirky...the whole idea of cloud-based soundset retrieval is so-so ...I'll keep with this program with fingers crossed... I just requested a refund for this mistake I made...I actually feel violated by this whole ordeal
