Review by Mrray

Not very good - I really want to like this app. If it was any good it could be like SAWStudio for a Mac. It is not. It doesn’t support low buffer settings, not even as low as any of the actual DAW’s I have. I have tried it with numerous interfaces, some of which, like RME, have the best drivers in the industry for low latency settings. Also, Midi Control and OSC control are poorly implemented, and do not work very will. Motu and RME definitely have this beat. I wish I had not spent the money on it, but hope the company can someday make this app useable, so I might get my money’s worth. Otherwise, I should ask for a refund, as it does not work as advertised for me on my i7 mac with an SSD and 8gb of Ram (should work fine). I get better results, latency wise from all of my DAW’s. Don’t waste your money until they make it significantly better.
