  • Lots of fun! :)

    By Ruthlessmama
    It’s awesome to have a fun app and a team backing it that cares so much about our experience! I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys iOS music! :)
  • Love. Pure love.

    Update: keeps getting better. Now has Ableton Live Lite export feature. This app is sort of like a software emulation of a simple hardware sampler, like a Boss SP-303 or something, but with automation. Great beat maker. Got this app a couple days ago. Didn't quite understand it at first. Put a little thought into it. It's beautiful. Put in a pattern, automate it, get it to sound how you want. The price is so good for what you're getting. It's like a Korg Monotribe in the digital domain, but it has a pattern sequencer, so it's like a Korg DS-10. Just get it.
  • awesome!!!

    By musician dan
    This is an awesome app!!! I also love Figure. Triqtraq is Figure on steroids!!! Adds chords, several layers of tweaking and song pattern building to what Figure offers. Whew... ok got that out... Now... what helps make it 5 stars and more... 1. Need universal iPad version. 2. Needs to work in landscape and portrait view. 3. Need a user manual, preferably built into app. Going to website to look at videos for help is a time waster, and a bit of a turnoff... 4. More granular control over chords would be awesome. As is, the pitch control over chords functions more as an effect than as a transposing tool. Having said that, it's already awesome... If you are willing to spend 30 mins to learn the app, and a little time to grow w it, this baby will just give and give :-)
  • Great app, just needs 1 thing.

    By Hip1756
    This is a great app, but it really needs a sample waveform edit window. Please give us this in an update soon. Thanks.
  • Need update

    We need an update!!!
  • Barely adequate.

    By Eriptron
    Based on the reviews and a couple of audio samples, TriqTraq seemed like a no brainer to buy. That said, and after messing around with the app for about an hour, I would have done better saving my money. Going on 4 years now and the developer still can only think iPhone/iPod!? ...only 1/2 of one orientation? Seriously? Many iPad cases only have landscape orientation. Worse yet, TriqTraq only supports the home button down portrait position so I can't even rest my iPad in my lap without disconnected the power cable to use the app. I think Skram is designed better and it's UI is intuitive. This developer needs to get off their tail and finish TriqTraq and make it a serious music instrument and not just a sound 'gizmo'. The developer was lazy deciding not to give the preset sounds meaningful names instead of useless names like 75 synth presets simply called Synth1-Synth75! Again, seriously? That's next to useless forcing you to have to listen to each one making it impossible to find anything quickly. Ridiculous! I find the U/I not very intuitive and at times just plain confusing. The UI mechanics distracts from the music creation process.
  • Awesome app!

    Just buy it!
  • Amazing App - a flawless sequencer perfect for Ableton users

    By ExcitableOne
    This is an amazing app for producing music. I'm a music producer and I use Ableton for my D.A.W. I bought this app because it was featured on the Ableton Link webpage and it is my new favorite music production app. This works great for Link but it's best as a standalone sequencer, the sounds are top quality and you can export directly to soundcloud(or by email) which makes this app amazing on its own! This is a must have app for any music producer, especially if you use Ableton!
  • Addictive app

    By Ben Efitofadoubt
    It is hard to tear myself away from this one. They are also a first rate company that cares about their work and their users.

    I have pure love for this app. Once you start to learn its functions (it's not hard) a whole world of sequencing opens up that only a genius could have envisioned. I have only had it for a day, but that is all I needed to conclude that this app is absolutely top-notch.
