An expensive shadow to Beatwave 2
Beatwave two was probably the best iteration of this app. Pay a small fee, and in return, you get to play around with more tools. Controls were simple, and easy to use too. The new version is a bit more messy. The UI isn’t as newbie friendly as it once was, at least in my opinion. It’s also upsetting to lose all of my songs due to the huge transformations that the app went through. Which be fine, if I wasn’t walled to pay a weekly subscription to even attempt to remake them. I’d be alright with paying another one and done price for the new features, but 7.99 a week is just too much for the same features and instruments you got in the last Beatwave. I’ll give it two star’s, since I still like the app itself, but I do hope it takes a different route in the case that Beatwave four comes around.
Get around the subscription [UPDATE]
So I haven’t used the app yet and will update after I do. Apparently no one knows how to get around the auto-renewal of the subscription and it’s turning people away from what is probably a good app so here it is. Settings>tap on your Apple ID>iTunes & App Store>Tap your Apple ID again>view Apple ID>subscriptions And there it is, go into Beatwave 3 and hit cancel. The free trial will expire after 7 days or whatever they’re offering. You’re welcome. Enjoy. P.S. I’m only giving the 1 star right now because I have to make this PSA review. The Devs should really make this easier or make a separate app that’s just the trial and load it with a ton of ads to make up for the $400 a year they’re tricking people into. P.P.S. There’s a yearly subscription option for $40 a YEAR. Which isn’t so bad if you really like this. I pay $60 a year for Xbox sooooo..... perspective. [UPDATE] There are a lot of instruments you just have to download them all. It’s a little overwhelming at first but it looks pretty good so far. People were complaining there are missing notes but if you change the scale to chromatic they’re all there just takes some searching and messing with settings.
Used to be 5 star
When the original Beatwave came out years ago it was amazing. Very user friendly and you could even create links for your projects to show your friends. At one point, I had broken my device with all my first precious projects, but I still was able to listen to them from the links I had saved. After a while, those links stopped working. I had emailed the developer and they never responded. Years later here I am, attempting to contact the developer via email and they still do not respond at all, yet in the responses on the reviews they tell everyone to email them. Why? You won’t respond anyway. The projects I made on the original app are some of the only things I’ve created in my life that I was actually proud of. Lately it has been weighing on me greatly that I can not even listen to them anymore. I still have all the old links but they just redirect to the new apps main page to download the app. I am very sad and my inspiration has been lost for years. I keep trying to make more music occasionally and get absolutely nowhere with any DAW or app. I want my old projects. I want to share them with my fiancé. I want to expand on them. I miss them.
I just recently got back into the iOS game. The last time I used this app was in 2016 and I was able to go in, make beats and experiment right from the get go. And now... you’re telling me that in order for me to even USE this app I have to start up a free trial and risk being charged for it if I forget to cancel the subscription? What kind of gouging is this? This “new” model of doing things really ticks me off. I have old projects that I can’t load into the app. I will continue to use the older version still on my iPod touch. Doesn’t bug me about trial nonsense and subscriptions. What about the people who already purchased the music packs? Were there really that many people not buying the add ons that you switched the app from “ pay what you want” to “WEEKLY subscriptions?” Are you really asking for $400 plus dollars a year for this app? I’m sure most people would just buy a total package app for less than 1/4 the price. My previous review of this app was 4 stars when it was the hot new music making app and now it will remain at 1 because not everyone has deep pockets to pay $7.99 WEEKLY for a mobile app. Ridiculous.
Forced outrageous subscription
I couldn’t even make it past the opening screen. The all immediately asked for a one week trial that would convert to an $8/week subscription. That’s over $400 per year! This was recommended to me by my music teacher, and after showing him that screen he will stop recommending it to his students. I immediately deleted it fun my phone and downloaded Reason Compact instead, which offers a similar experience for free, with far more affordable in-app purchases. I don’t care if I can subscribe then unsubscribe to get the free version, this sort of behavior by a developer is unethical, and I won’t engage in App Store subscription games. I strongly suggest you do the same and avoid this app and this company.
I was reading the reviews, and then a developer or somebody said that we don’t have to pay. So, I got it and that’s a lie. You have to pay. So it’s a scam so they get more plays in the game. I’ve seen $8.99 a week before for games. However, those games are for knowing yourself better. So, sure it costs a lot. But those games are needed more. Those games have more stuff. This game is for entertainment. Nothing else. If a developer says it’s free, it’s a lie and as far as I know, if it’s a scam online, people will find the scam. And tear this game down over that one “white lie.” So think for a moment. Do you really want that? Because for a game that cost so much, I don’t think you’re getting much money. Not enough for a lawyer anyways. -A rude kid
The app asks for too much.
I can’t even try it out, and the first thing it asks for is 8 dollars for only a week. Maybe a month, but not a week. One of my friends said that the app lost all of his songs because he didn’t pay for a couple weeks, and I can find any free app that would be better than spending that much money on this app. If you are gonna ask for that much money, please put it on the description. I don’t want to download something only for entertainment purposes, and find out that it cost 8 bucks a month. Unbelievable.
Won’t restore my purchases
I’ve had Beatwave since 2011. I have loved this app and told many of my musician friends to download it. I purchased the pro upgrade two years ago. I now download it to my new phone and it won’t restore my pro account, but instead wants to charge me 8 DOLLARS A WEEK, not just to use the pro edition, which I’ve already paid for, but to use it at all. What an unabashed ripoff. I don’t know if any music program that’s worth 8 dollars a week, but as great as this is, it certainly isn’t worth that. Until the developers lowers the price or reimburses former users, this app is to be AVOIDED.
Why in the hell does this app request that I pay a fee to keep making music when it didn’t before? Why does any music app do this? This is the best music creation app I have found, but if I want to keep producing songs I have to pay a weekly fee? This is beyond stupid and greedy.
Worse than the first
So I’ve had beatwave for a while and enjoyed it. It was removed off of the app store and I found that out when I went to leave a review on the original (which I believe was a really good app.) Anyways I saw this and decided to download it. Before, you could buy all the packs separately, then you could only buy beatwave pro which gave all the packs. I went on and it’s the same thing, but now it’s a subscription. You should go back to how it was before, when it was good.
New payment model makes me sad
Several weeks ago I purchased the extension packs and full features in the old Beatwave app and now I have to pay for them over and over again in the new version? $7.99 per week is a crazy price to ask! Don’t get me wrong, I’ve love using Beatwave to compose songs but I think that this is a bad decision. I will definitely not be using Beatwave 3. Also how can you exit out from the free trial in the new version of Beatwave? You should be able to skip that if you don’t want the pro features or expansion pack?
I was using this app a year or two ago and it was great. Today, after reopening it after a long while, I see that the version I was using is no longer on the App Store and has been replaced by a version that seems to be inferior in many ways. Even worse, I can no longer access the several sound packs I had purchased since they’re now behind a $20 pay wall. That’s unacceptable. Either give me my money back or give me access to the things I paid for.
So This Alice person, you keep telling people “you dont have yo pay, you can still use the free restricted version of the app” yeah thats a bold face lie, i just now downloaded the game which im deleting because there is no such thing i either have to get the 7 day trial or get the premium which i will not do i saw someone mention a different app in the reviews and i think ill go to that app and not come here again. Dont waste your time here folks. This app isnt worth the $400 a year they trying to squeeze out of ya.
Beatwave 2’s instruments...
Honestly, I like this app but please add the ability to records vocals. And I would also like the beatwave 2 instruments back including Ledder and Bunk and more... Not saying I want you to revert back to actual beatwave 2. I want it to stay Beatwave 3, and keep all Beatwave 3 instruments, but bring Beatwave 2’s instruments back.
Playing Beats at same time
Maybe I just didn’t figure it out, but from what I tried, you weren’t able to play different beats at the same time. I know it sounds dumb, but it would be really cool to be able to see the different sounds I could create by doing so. Also, I wish the app didn’t make you pay a subscription, or at least not for so much. Both were very disappointing. But, the game itself isn’t too bad.
