Tantrum999's Review of Musix ProReviewed on 9/20/19 2:15 PM
I'm very happy with this program... although I agree with the reviewer that said it could use a few other control abilities (I will be contacting the company with my personal ideas). The other big thing I would really like to see in this is a basic phrase recorder. This in my opinion would make this a wonderful on the go sketch pad for musical ideas. Well I guess a few more basic sounds, or a very basic synth so you can get your own basic sounds wouldn't go amiss, but all in all though this thing is great!

This fantastic app is the reason I got an iPad Pro and might be one of the most impactful musical tools I've encountered in my life. As an owner of a Linnstrument, I wanted to have as much practice time as possible on an isomorphic grid, but the Linnstrument can't go everywhere I go. This app *greatly* accelerated my skills playing on a grid and has transformed my understanding of music theory. As I spend more time with it I realize how much of a window into isomorphic or hexagonal layouts it is -- anyone else using this app: Do yourself a favor while you're learning, and switch between 1) layouts, 2) scales, 3) button sizes, and 3) labellings every now and then, even if you're working towards other goals. Doing this really opens up the possibilities but also constantly keeps you at the "edge" of where your learning is at, which helps you get better faster. Going back to a Linnstrument after playing on this app is an amusing sensation, as playing on a glass surfaced iPad requires a lot more mental agility so when you return to the Linnstrument you feel like an ultra-precise master. Great app :)

Very nice app, but needs better sounds than what comes out of the box

This a great app for making music. Many different layouts! Polyphonic! A midi controller for Virtual Midi apps! I do wish the instructions were available offline. Shout out to IOS Music and You for making me aware of this app! However, put a recorder a AudioCopy on it and it would be absolutely tremendous and a five star app!

I was a bit skeptical at first but soon was quite impressed with the thought that went into this.

All features work great but in the iPhone version midi out to daw is not supported. There is no mention of this in the description. Only reason I bought it. A very expensive app for limited functionality merits 2 stars in my book. I suggest thumbjam if you're looking for a midi controller with scales

This is hands down the best app to control vst instruments via midi! I can't say how much I miss using it, please update so it will run on the new version of iOS.

I can't agree more with Rayato,add the velocity and accelerometer will make this app a Monster!And many music apps already have,except they don't have a brilliant control surface like this one.If added,this will be a Ableton Push Killer! Come on guys,seize the corner of history and make us proud!
JDRock!'s Review of Musix ProReviewed on 9/20/19 2:15 PM
Having not so large hands, I have always struggled with the reaches involved in playing the piano keyboard, and have always wondered if there was a better way to lay out the keys. This app really opened my eyes to the possibilities of the isomorphic layout, especially the Gerhard layout. The efficiency in space reduction is significant, as I am able to access 4 chromatic octaves’ worth of hexagonal keys on an iPad Pro 12.9”. I do realize that some of these layouts have existed before on concertinas and button accordions, but this app gives you a lot more options. It also allows you to turn the iPad into both controller and sound producer - one neat little package you can take anywhere! A few things I would suggest to make this app even more awesome would be to mirror-image the screen, because many layouts favor one hand or the other, in terms of performance proficiency. Velocity control could help with expressive performances. A pitch bend bar option would also aid that. As a person who likes tactile feedback, making Musix Pro able to control the layout of a hardware button controller would make it indispensable. That being said, this app is a fundamentally important tool in the evolution of musical instrument design. Thank you, Shiverware!

I love this interface with its midi support! Thanks for the Audiobus support!
