Pretty sweet app! I've been using it to create a lot of splits. Improvements - Add crescendos , mf, mp, pp. If you can, make the app smoother, when I'm switching in between measures it gets more and more laggy the larger the piece is. Bug - I have an iPad mini and whenever I try to share my pieces that I make on this with my phone, the app quits! Please fix this.

Cool idea but has some flaws

Let me start off by saying that I'm glad something like this exists on the App Store. However there are some serious things that I would like to be fixed. 1) The bar at the top is really finicky and so is the way that you have to carefully swipe between measures. 2) There should be a way to change the subdivision of an individual best rather than having to change the whole measure. This would more easily facilitate metric changes. 3) There should be a way to notate diddles and flams. 4) I found it to be hard to write single splits (squigs or whatever you call them). Maybe make it so you can split a beat into 12 so you can give each drum a different partial. 5) There is currently no way to to split a 16th note into 3 or 4. Sometimes you need to write a groove at a slower tempo so there needs to be a way to include 3's and 4's runs like you would with eighth notes at a faster tempo.

Not what it seems

Maybe this app is great, but it is just for bongos. I was expecting it was bass lines like a bass guitar, not just hand drumming. I deleted the app within 2 days.

Superb App!!

So far, so great! I'm enjoying everything from this app! The layout seems awkward at first but you'll get used to it and it's quite manageable! I'm also really liking the sound of quality of different effects of the instruments!! (To the devas) I highly recommend adding different tones to drums as if you were using different kind of mallets. That would be a cooler effect, and also adding the undo button would really help so that way there wouldn't need to be deleting all the accidental adding/changing of notes manually! Overall, I highly recommend buying this app to all you drumline folks out there!

Not bad for straight and simple beats

Cdndrummer's Review of Bass Line Composer

I'm with Geoff Hamilton; for a first generation, and for $0.99 it's fairly decent. Change tempo? Yes Set tempo for each bar? No Add/Delete bars? Yes Different time signatures? No Time Sigs assignable to specific bars? No Decent sounds? Yes, with nice range too. Subdivisions? Yes (curious implementation) So, if your exercises or cadences are mostly in 4/4 time, then fine. If not, then either ignore the bar lines and just rely on the meter, or find a different tool. If your parts go deeper than 8th notes, this app can do that, but the implementation is strange. It may be excellent, or it may be terrible. I stumbled upon this feature by accident and have only mucked with it for a few minutes. It is not blatantly obvious how it works and I can't find a read me file or any other help assistance. Perhaps on the website or Facebook page.

Dizzzying! Not for me.

🎶💨👀 🎶💨👀 🎶💨👀 The rapid scrolling motion of beats represented as square pieces of "sandpaper" angular icons and measures is a bit too rapid and difficult to read. As it is now, the drab and bulky square icons racing off the page at "Sonic The Hedgehog" speeds make my eyes ping-pong when my eyes leave the interface. For a less straining and nauseating experience I recommend rotating the interface/device 90°. Visually, the "asphalt" glyph icons are not easily discernible, nor compelling to get in a serious head boppin' and creative mood. Hopefully the developers rethink the interface with a little more depth and thought, or options to change it. Overall, the app is interesting but the current price is a bit "spendy" compared to other musical creative apps which offer more remarkable features for a better value. I can't see using this for the long term, but maybe things will evolve and become better suites to my personal liking. 😐dB

Cannot figure out how to save my work and name it. Also since I purchased the bundle, I would have liked to add in the tenor and snare pieces that were created in a separate app that you included in my bundle. As it stands now I cannot do that. Disappointed and would not have paid for this app if allowed to sample it first... so smart move by you. Also where are the cymbals?

It's ok

For the most part this app meets the expectations with its purpose. The sounds are better than most of the other apps I have found that refer to an actual marching bass. This is a good way to at least get thoughts down and saved. However, there are a few downsides to this app that could be improved. Timing- while it plays the tempo seems to fluctuate and not stay consistent. Rims- most shows will have rim clicks and would be nice if they were able to be added to the app in a future update. Measures- all of the measures are in 4/4 and it would be considered that 3/4 and a few others were added This app does its job and for $0.99 it's worth giving a try. I recommend waiting for a future update.

Useless now

I have 59 pieces saved on the application. The moment that I launch the application and touch the screen, the application crashes, so I cannot access any of my creations.
