Confusion all round I managed to create some pretty good music with this only to find I couldnt save. It desperately needs instructions. When compositions are still still small I could almost understand what I was doing but then I found that blocks of music behaved differently as the pieces became more complex. Please update expand and refine this poor APP, otherwise put it out of it's misery
Nice! The best sequencer I have tried so far for Android! Runs like a charm on my Note 2. Highly recommended :) Tip: Your own custom samples are easily added by copying them to a desired sub folder of Zquence Studio. You can also make rec inside the app by clicking the record button in the Track roll (easy to miss).
Where are the numbers This is barely average, for $3 its ok. As a mobile studio one would think this would perform as such. No time signatures in piano roll, no real eq values; just arbitrary numbers. Editing is wonky and no ability to load own samples as advertised. Almost unusable. If there is a Z2 coming out hope it will be more polished and free to Z1 owners.
Has Potential It's looking good so far, but it could really use more instruments. I mean that in the most severe way imaginable. Also, the cells are a bit too small for comfort, and I often make mistakes when placing them on the piano roll. More mixing options would be great as well. Another thing that I would love to see implemented is the ability to make one note 'slide' into another one, if that makes any sense. Like, raising/lowering the pitch by connecting two cell blocks or something like that. Certainly my favorite sequencer to date on the market. I'm eager to see more updates coming along. UPDATE: I've recently been stumbling across two problems that occur quite often. The first is that half of the songs that I save as projects fail to load when I attempt to open them, and they're rendered useless. The second is that random notes will become mute and not emit any sound whatsoever. I don't know what causes this, but it's very frustrating when trying to compose. One second it's working fine, and the next, half of your song stopped playing and it sounds void. Deleting and replacing cell blocks don't fix the problem. Please, please, please address these issues. Thanks.
Great Potential Fantastic idea and range of functions but the app has some usability issues. It's pretty clunky/annoying to navigate through and selecting and de-selecting notes in the piano roll is a pain. People should remember this is a phone/tablet app... It obviously won't compare to a DAW meant for use on desktops! Overall, good app with the potential to be great with some future updates hopefully.
DRM Garbage Does Nothing But Hurt The Customer Out of the literally 400 plus apps on my tablet, this app and just like two others, have that DRM crap attached to them, which makes them "protected" and means I am unable to backup my updates. I say "protected", because any company or developer that thinks that adding this Google protection, will stop people from pirating their apps, well, I have a bridge I'd like to sell you. It does absolutely nothing to stop pirates. One person will buy it, either crack the protection encryption themselves, or pass it along to someone else with the knowledge to do so. Then your app ends on pirate sites. I'd be willing to bet 100 bucks this very app is out there right now. So you see, the intentions are good, I'm a developer myself and understand the need to want to protect your hard work. But it simply won't stop those determined enough to steal it, and instead you make the people like me, who actually pay you for the app, suffer by way of not allowing us to backup the application. Most developers understand this principle and side with not frustrating their customers, I hope you will as well one day.
