OK I don't really know what I'm doing but managed to generate an MP3 ringtone that doesn't sound bad at all, will need to play with it some more, its very powerful/complex.

A great app to introduce you to the DAW environment. The social and collaborative features are what really make this app top-notch.

Good app, needs more! More synths and fx please! Acoustic guitars and bass, pianos, moody orchestral strings, rain and water backgrounds that can be sustained throughout a track without looping! And this absolutely needs to knob to adjust tempo, pitch, and speed gradually throughout a loop! And another request: please please please fix the synth duration time to play to the full extant of selected duration within the loop so it will play the full four beats

Nice!!! But I was really expecting that we can record or prerecord vocals as well while the entire music product is playing. Like singing along with the music you made.
