Review
Another app and another one trick pony. This time it’s cool retro 8 bit sounds. All your Atari, Commodore 64, Speak & Speak bits are here in their low quality goodness. Perhaps. Assignable sounds are great. There’s a lot to choose from, over 150 so they say. The pads themselves aren’t responsive enough so it’s hard to get any kind of interesting beat going. The only way to record a pattern is hit record and hope for the best. It does save the pattern. There are ten save slots for your patterns. There’s no step record like on a regular drum machine or tempo adjust. On the plus side you can play along to a song in your library if so inclined. It’s also free so kind of off sets the annoyance of advertisements.

In a word: weak. Conclussion: it’s okay. That’s about it.
