    Promising but abandoned

    Update: Nothing in two years! The app has been passed by a number of apps that those developers still update their apps. still, and ONLY, uses iTunes file transfer for crying out loud!! Since I dumped desktops, I do not gave iTunes anymore, making this app next to useless for me. It does, however, play in the background but the audio stops on occasion bringing the app to the foreground. —- What the other posters have said plus it is not multitasking compliant as you can not put it in the background to play anything else. Even though I like the all-in-one concept for the GUI but if you offer a lot of features and control, it just isn't real practical. Some of the controls are just too small, and in some cases, too close together.

    What an impressive gem!

    I thought originally this was just a beat/groove box with canned sounds. So wrong I was! This is actually a fairly powerful composition tool that also has midi out for 5 different generators. It's not mentioned in the description, but it's also IAA with multi-port outs. It records its own midi for import into other apps as well as audio copy to pasteboard. What a hidden gem! Highly recommended! :)

    Do not buy

    Prior to, this developer had an app called Once was released, they made an update for noise that made it unusable and basically forced you to buy mint. Buyer beware, once they come out with a new app, they will update mint as to disable it.
