  • Great sound but limitations.

    By P. Stiff
    Only giving this 3 stars because of the small choice of chord types: 11. No 6ths, minor 9th is included, but not straight or major 9ths. Any one of the sessionband apps has a seemingly arbitrary selection of chords for each genre. Perhaps this is for practical reasons but nonetheless.... Would be nice to be able to change tempo and swap from one style to another WITHIN the composition.
  • Very poor controls...

    By holymacaroni
    Can we please.... please.... PLEASE.... have a PLAY/STOP button on the EDIT window!?! It is INCREDIBLY frustrating and hindering to workflow to keep having to switch backwards and forwards and then stop and start and back and forward again!! Makes a potentially very useful app... into frustrating amateur rubbish!
  • Good update

    By J Kale
    simple but effective app. New time stretching lends itself well to the piano and you can get some really tempo ranges with it. Well done Sessionband

  • Not working fully on IOS 8

    By Songsforarainyday
    There was no mention of this app not being fully compatible with iOS 8 until I bought it and it didn't fully work... I visited the official website to them find out that iOS 8 update is imminent... Not really happy that I can't fully use the app as it looks great.
  • Interesting App

    By TheWraith517
    I play piano, so keyboard wise i can pull off a sax, violin, strings and stuff which maks this is a nice app where i can put a simple yet nice sounding backing together "to jam with using another app for my lead melody" that said it could do with an easier way of editing the riffs, im not to keen on the interface use, hence my 4 star rating, other than that its good. Be sure to chck out their other apps ;)
