Mixed feelings This app sounds so great and has so much potential, but I can't figure out how to use it. Losing a whole morning's worth of work because it failed to save was more than frustrating. I am asking please PLEASE offer thorough instructions, besides "use the menu button", as you've advised many others to do. I've looked in the upper left hand corner, and I don't see anything at all. Others seem to not have this problem, so could you post a screen shot of this mysterious button? I am trying to compose a complex full orchestra piece, but couldn’t figure out how to change from treble clef to base clef, depending on the insrument. There's no staccato. It's all legato. And what is going on with all the rests? I also couldn't find a way to change the settings (add an instrument, change time/key sig,etc) once I filled out the title form. An auto save feature would be great, or a clearly marked save button. I want to like this program, but as it is, it's more frustrating than useful.
Needs expansion I have pro version. I think the notes are too big, bars too huge when composing. Reduce size to half. Also, need cut and paste function when repeating notes or whole bars so do not have to waste time repeating. Add woodwinds. I would like B flat clarinet. Make composition function bars pinned on start of composition. Hate disappearing function bars. Need to change rate of rythm after saving file. How to make copy of file and rename to make modified version without having to re-enter entire score?
LOVE IT!! It's 100%, worth the money. Do not waste your time on the free one. This has many many different instruments to use. It has time signatures, keys, pick up measures, every type of accent and notation you can think of etc. There are only two things I wish they included: more regular percussion (bass drum, snare drum, normal cymbals etc) with percussion staffs and different types of singing synth (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). I enjoy writing music for singing groups so obtaining a similar sound to a bass singer or soprano in preview would be handy. Nonetheless, this app is fabulous and a must - have for composers!!!
I've been looking for ages for an app on which I can compose/arrange on my phone, and came across this! Great potential in it, especially in the ability to export XML files to other desktop music software. Please would you add a decresc. hairpin, and also place all hairpins below the stave (only in choral music do they go above.) Also, could you change 'choir aahs' etc to Sop/Alto/Ten/Bass? If I open the app on an Android tablet (as opposed to phone) will I see more staves in my score, or just bigger ones?! Looking forward to further developments in this!
So I got the free version and loved it. I got excited an bought the Pro. Now I'm upset. THERE'S NO MENU WITH A PLAY BUTTON for the whole song. Aaaaaagh!!! Fix this and I will give 5 stars. I use a Samsung Galaxy S7. A Copy & Paste feature would be nice too. . . . Ok, I found the MENU button. Thanks to someone else's post. You have to hold down the return button for a few seconds. . . . The repeat bar doesn't work. It keeps moving to the left side of the measure. . . Ok, so I figured this out too. To keep the repeat bar from moving to the left you must place at least one note to the right of the repeat bar.
04/06/17 Still an issue. The Pro app is useless to me as there is no way to access anything (not even to just play the sample scores included!). I now only use the free version because it's accessible. Such a shame cuz I love the app. I changed phones and suddenly there's no menu to play any compositions. I checked the free Ensemble Composer and the menu is still accessible (there's an arrow on the top right hand of the screen that toggles the menu opened & closed) can you please add this to the paid app? Otherwise this app, which I formally loved and used constantly, is pretty much useless. PS Holding down my phones menu button doesn't work to open any menu
