    Very well done app.
    The sound is quite excellent, if a bit simple; but it would be simple - it's emulating a single-oscillator monophonic synthesizer and an early 80s beatbox.

    The interface is well designed and responsive, and coming up with good melodies should have been this easy on a real tb-303, or mc-202.

    Ability to save a session, and export a sound file is a must, and it's here and works well.

    A couple wishes:
    - it would be nice to have more patterns, and the ability to define pattern order / reps;
    - flam on the drum machine would be very cool;
    - having to go back to the mixer to switch patterns is just slightly awkward - having up and down buttons for browsing patterns on the actual instrument screens would be nice.

    One slight hitch - and this might be a hardware issue, or a patent issue:
    - Multitouch is a little clumsy; one control can't be smoothly decreased while another is smoothly increased. They want to go the same direction. But if that's what you want, it works very well.

    Conclusion: Excellent sound, lots of fun! Well worth the tiny price.
