Just bought two rings and it takes 5 minutes to connect one. Okay, pretty annoying but at least it connected. I go to connect the second and it says, "Connection failure," in the middle of it installing updates. Okay, no problem, I'll just reco.... Oh, the other one disconnected. I retry and the same thing happens. So basically I bought two pieces of junk. Also one of the usb chargers don't work. Surprise surprise. No wonder this app is rated 2.8. Should be rated 0.0. Literally trash.

The app seemed to work well on the LG Stylo 5 at first. It boots up and connects to the Specdrums properly and updates the firmware as designed. There are plenty of preset libraries of sounds and looped tracks to sort through and download. The specdrums work well with the app. I rated this a 3 because no matter what library I load, one or two "notes" (for lack of a better term) will fail to strike and play properly. At first I thought this had to do with a bad library download, but then I found that the note that would not work was random. One time loading a particular library it might be orange that does not work, and the next time it is green or blue. Based on the onscreen key being lit, it properly detects when a note is struck and released, it will just only play the quickest sliver of sound on these notes and then go silent, even though it still detects the note being held properly (key is lit on the phone screen) until I lift up the specdrum ring. I love the rings. I love the concept. The app interface is great and extremely intuitive, it just has this one bug that keeps me from fully enjoying it.

The loops are fun, and I was able to record the audio, but it was with a seperate interior audio recording app. the lag is not too bad, but I experienced some problems in that every time I left the app alone for 2 minutes, my library tracks are different. I have to change the colors and audio clips again. It isn't that much of a hassle though and it is a great concept, just in the early days of the app.
