Are you guys aware of Paklsound1?

There hasn't been hype over it lately because it's been in the app store for a long time. It's supposed to be pretty good, though. It has a lot of features for one of these. It has sharps and flats, which I'm pretty sure the others don't.

I'm not trying to discourage anyone from buying the others, I just wanted make you guys aware it's there.

Here's the link to Melodica's youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVZMaXMNz-0
There are a couple of reviews in their site and they say that the sounds is really bad.

Paklsound just doesn't quite do it for me .... it sounds like video game bleeps.

i doubt it will ever go on sale so you're going to be waiting for quite awhile. that being said, seriously its 20 friggin dollars. if the same program was a pc program you would be paying a couple hundred bucks easy.

set aside a few bucks and instead of buying shite apps like car jack streets, buy this. you wont regret it

Ok ... so I spent the buck and bought ToneBoard. That was a waste of a dollar (don't waste yours). I'm keeping my faith in Melodica.

So far these serious music apps I definitely recommend:
Noise.io
Beatmaker
iDrum
Randgrid
Star Piano/Guitar (They might not have the novelty of other guitar and piano apps, but are much easier for actually playing decent things plus Beatmaker compatibility)
Jasuto

Looks like iDrum has 4 editions ... Hip Hop, Club, Ministry of Sound Anthems and Rock. Which do you recommend?

Btw ... I have all the others except Randgrid ... not too sure about it (can you convince me). Even Jasuto .... wow ... quite a learning curve on that one.
