  • No longer saves settings??? Dec 28, 2020

    By renealex_726
    Sooo I love this app I’ve been using it for about 3 years but I can not figure out why my settings are no longer saving I used to be able to keep my volume down my cross fade all the way up and everything the way I needed it but lately it’s been resetting to default settings everytime I close the app with only the pad I chose but not the settings please fix this I LOVE this app and recommend it to all my friends but this little thing is such an amazing feature that makes it even more customizable to each person please fix or bring back! 😓 I hate going in to the app and the volume being at full instead of where I left it

    *Fixed* I bought the granular sound pack, but in the app, they didn't actually play, it just played the last used sound. I had to uninstall the app and reinstall it to get them working.

    I found this great for intros but if I kept it on for the whole song, it would just start to feel like a hypnosis or constant feedback somewhere. Features I would like to see: Ability to set a timer for how long a single pad to play. Allow user to create layers of timed pads. Create a “Scene” - combined with the timer and layer feature. This allows the user to combine multiple recorded or timed notes for intro pads, verse and chorus pads etc. ‘Tap’ for tempo. Simple explanation... if you have someone else running the pads the ability to match the tempo by navigating to a tempo tab with a big round circle or something to tap on would be great. This feature should be real time adjustment because most changes a user makes with the current version, you have to stop the pad and restart it. Texture pads - sometimes I like to add a small bit of nighttime noises to make it feel like we’re out under the stars (like David Crowder Band - I need words); I also like the crackling of a fire (Any song from Rend Collective’s Campfire album); and even a ticking clock (You can barely hear this in the song Only Hope by Switchfoot). A lot of the functionality aspects I am suggesting are included in iReal Pro but the advantage I see for AutoPad is the ability to distill these suggested features down to fit AutoPads target audience.

    Each pad has a random pop too it. I've restarted the phone (s10+) but no luck. So, can't use it. 10/01 Update : Plugged my phone into the sound system on air plane mode + do not disturb via head phone socket and all was OK. I was hearing the pop when just using the phone speaker. Didn't get time to see if it's just a phone speaker issue or not.

    By Pro CCM Keyboardist
    Some huge pros: • the app is STABLE, no crashing, audio is seamless, even when switching between apps • it's straightforward in its layout, which is a big plus when working on stage Honestly seeing that this is v1 makes me extremely excited for what it could become. Autopad already is set to be one of the most useful tools in my arsenal. A couple of recommendations: • add volume control within the app: pads are a bit quiet compared to other apps like Bebot and GarageBand • add minor chords • create a way to cycle through a setlist, allow users to create their own grid with what they will need EDIT: • also definitely create a way to mess with some of the Pad timbres, such as add more motion or movement, swells, brighten/dampen with low pass filters, etc. I showed a friend of mine this, and we both agreed it's a great start. It's just the tones, although they're well designed, are rather plane without any kind of background melodic movement like synth swells and chorusy delay/verb chains.

    We already use the iOS version which has been great! Got this on an Android device while the discount was on, and my only issue so far was little occasional "pops" that come up in the pads, and everytime you switch between pads or fade out. EDIT: Thanks for your reply - I've sent an email
  • Good Start! Sep 5, 2018

    By dpodster
    Great idea for an app! A cool future feature would be to have the ability to blend in additional intervals (2nds, 5ths, 7ths). Having the ability to fade those intervals in and out would give this so much more character and make it a more musical tool. I found that I can tap two pads at the same time—sometimes it works; sometimes it doesn't. However, fading in specific intervals would be better. I'm looking forward to seeing what else you come up with.

    By ballpearer
    I love the app, the sounds are good, the pan allows us to have click in the in-ears and not in FOH, and the menus & settings are easy to navigate. However, we’ve used this app now for two rehearsals and one church service, and the app has crashed twice, luckily only during the rehearsals. Seems like it might be a little unstable, and it would be SUPER nice to have different tones for the click other than the ice-pick-to-the-brain sound. It’s a bit painful when there’s only the click coming through in your ears and it’s too easily drowned out by the rest of the band. Otherwise the app is great, and I’m happy with the purchase.

    I've been using Auto Pad with my Church's praise band for over 2 years now, and I've been very satisfied with it. The main pad screen is great. I'm glad they finally added a better set-list feature. One suggestion I have would be more comprehensive Set List management. Perhaps a copy-list feature, or something where I could maintain a matter list of songs, then create a sub-list from that for a given week's set.

    Fun app!
  • Great app Sep 27, 2019

    By Parkopee
    This app is so perfect, especially for acoustic sets. A lot of the reviews I’ve read have said some things that really don’t make sense to me. (I.e. minor keys, sounding too hypnotic) they are relying too much on this AutoPad. It really is just a filler to help fill in sound, which is does perfectly. We use it every week at church and it’s been a lifesaver. Great job on the app!
  • Great great app! Jan 3, 2021

    By Komobabo
    I love this and use it mostly every Sunday at church! Different sounds (and the packs aren't expensive) I recommend this to anyone needing a pad sound. The only thing I would add is a companion app for the Apple Watch. It'd be great to switch between pads or sounds etc without needing the phone next to me. Other than that, nothing but posivites to say.
  • Great developer, Great product Oct 18, 2020

    By Shaka_Steve
    I had an issue with the app not connecting to my Bluetooth speaker and crashing. Within a day of my previous review the developer contacted me and updated the app. This is awesome! Thank you for creating such a great product and caring so deeply about your customer’s purchase. May God continue to bless you in your ministry🙂🙏🏽
  • Great Pad Sounds! May 25, 2019

    By bobbyjacksonmusic.com
    I love this app. I’ve used it every Sunday for years..the addition of setlists and click has been awesome! But, the ONE thing I would to change is having the ability to turn off the click accent. Could we make this happen soon!?
  • Love it! Great beginning! Oct 14, 2017

    By 3rd Watch
    I agree with everything Pro CCM Keyboardist said in their review. In addition to the pad, it would would amazing to have ambient melodic tones in the background to add some color to the pad so it’s not just the pad sound only the whole time.
  • Thank you! Sep 22, 2017

    By Tb3bbb bad app
    Awesome app, worth 10x what it costs. My only suggestion for improvement would be to make it more obvious which key you've selected. The letter does glow it is very faint. Still giving you 5 stars for tho!

    Absolutely love the pad sounds, especially the "Grainscapes" add-on pack. Other features such as control over the crossfade time and reverb are also very helpful. I am confused about the setlist mode however. I assumed a"song" would let me add multiple pads/notes and be able to step through them. It allows only a single note... It would be a great addition to allow a sequence of notes, even groups of notes for intro, verse, chorus, bridge and outro. Or perhaps the ability to setup loops.
  • We love it and use it weekly Feb 20, 2019

    By A runner guy
    We’ve been using this app on Sunday mornings for a few months. Overall, we’re very happy with what it allows us to do. The simple interface making changing keys and sounds an effortless task, which is hugely important when we’re playing live music. I can keep strumming and singing and quickly adjust the pad. Awesome. Our only critique is that we wish minor keys were available. This would make it a 5-star app for us!
  • Fantastic start! Oct 19, 2017

    By musicondabrainur
    Really love this app. Great combination of pad sounds and easy functionality. Two suggestions: 1. Add a playlist function to be able to go from pad to pad based on the music set. 2. It’s really tough on the fly to get to the menu to change pad sounds as I move from song to song. Is it possible to create the interface in such a way that the pad sounds are available at the top as their own buttons?
  • Great app missing one feature Jun 19, 2018

    By noahallen18
    This app is absolutely amazing love every bit of it! But it’s missing one feature, PANNING if there was that feature to be able to send audio all the way to the left or right side would be incredible!! Please add this cause this app is so awesome it just needs that’s one thing!
  • Excellent app...hoping for more Oct 2, 2017

    By Just-o
    This app is great. Love the simplicity of it. The only thing is it’s not easy to switch between sounds if your using a different sound for different songs. Hoping for a feature for that to come down the line.
  • Great app, have used it several times... But I do wish for a bit more! Oct 6, 2020

    By Thirdnail
    If you are looking for a nice, very simple (which is a must), quality backing/drone/ambiance then honestly there is no need to look any further. I am impressed! However I would love an “Angelic Ooh, and Ahhh” that would be AMAZING!

  • Functional and great idea with room for improvement Oct 5, 2017

    By sugarmellie
    This app has been a lifesaver for weeks when a live keys player is not available. It helps keep the band glued together especially during transitions and underscore moments. A few suggestions for improvement: **An in-app volume control - it's cumbersome in a live setting to adjust the volume using the iPad volume button. Would be much better to have a volume slider or knob in the interface itself. **As far as I know it's not possible to have this run in stereo. An option for stereo would be helpful. **Clearer visual cue if the pad is fired--Right now it's really difficult to tell visually if the pad is fired--it's only a faint outline around the key selected. Maybe if the whole button is lit up in a different color would be helpful? Overall, good app. A few tweaks here and there would make it really stellar!
