What happens if I get a new iPhone or iPad?
The limited edition apps you have already acquired will remain in the app store so that you’ll always be able to download them as long as you have the same iTunes account.

What happens after the "app drop" release time is over?
The apps will remain in the App Store so that you may download updates. After the “app drop”, the price in the app store will go to the maximum price tier. As long as you keep the same iTunes account, you may download updates and copies to new devices for free!

Will the apps still be updated?
The apps will be updated for new iOS versions, to ensure that your limited edition apps continue to work as iOS technology progresses.

Will the apps support iPhone?
We will try to make most of these apps universal. We’re planning a free universal upgrade to the Bass 808 Synth. While the app is currently iPad only, an iPhone version is on the way and will be available while the app is still on sale.

Will there be open-source?
We plan on open-sourcing as much as we can. Some of the code developed for this app has already been added to AudioKit for all developers to use in their projects, free of charge.

Are you still working on your existing apps?
Yes! We are still working on improving all our apps, including Synth One, D1, and FM2. The technology developed as a part of these limited edition apps will help improve all our apps.

More details about this app:

Brandon Rico Simpson did the official promo video, but like most of Brandon's videos it sounds like shit because he's trying to record off his speakers with the camera mic. The error is especially grievous in this instance because the low bass tones are all distorted. Distorted shit. Hearing this video makes me sad.

LMAO :) I get it now. The $999 dollar app was just setting us up for this. A common ploy by car salesmen and AMZN to make what they really want to sell to us look like a bargain.

Guess what? It is going to work for this idjit! 😂 Thanks for the fish AudioKit!

Remember people in these plague times please wear eye-protection when self-flagellating. Those rusty barbs can take out an eyeball in a blink!

You made me laugh the way you described this video. Can always count on you to tell it like it is bro, hahaha

At $999 I’d expect a hardware unit. Or loaded on a free iPad Pro. Or April Fools Day.

The video made me cringe (I’m not part of his ‘fam’ )
I bought the app , it seems fine though I think I need to search a little more for basic 808 bass drum
It made me think of the recent Erica synth bd-01 sound demos while I was going through the presets.

Don’t get this at all especially when this 808 bass drum can be quite easily reproduced with any synth plus that silly pricing??? Are they trying to be sort of boutique app makers:D not going to touch it really.
