  • Basic

    Couldn’t agree with previous review more. It’s just pre-recorded shapes assigned to notes. I assumed I’d be able to play/sing into the app and get visuals in real time... definitely not worth £9.99.
  • Not impressed

    By Twinkleglitterangel
    Well I brought it, and I should have read the other review before I spent £8!. There are no instructions for a start. And pretty much I agree with what the other reviewer says.
  • Not quite what I thought it would be

    By Ottoman12345
    This app is cool but it's not quite what I thought it would be. They have just recorded the videos of a cymatic water device and when u play or sing each note in, the recording video of that note plays. There is no fluid in- between transition between the notes it just switches from one note recording to another. Thought I was gonna have a lot of fun but have to say A little bit disappointed and won't be using this app even though I just paid lots of money for it. I wondered why I had not heard of this app before and after opening it now I know.
  • Making the invisible, visible.

    In a fun and intriguing way this brings to life subtleties of sound and chants. It is particularly impressive if used to show a group patterns created by voices and or instruments. Probably best used for strings of notes and sound that are not too repetitive. Excellent work.
