    "I don't think I'd find a better beat maker than this app, and it is connected to my desktop, so I can continue on my beats from my phone to my computer at work. It's a little pricey, but since it helps me put out sick beats that I sell to the dj of the big club in town, I guess it's a fair price to pay."

    "I only tried this out because it was way cheaper then my sister's FL app, but it turned out to be very practical! It is not as filled with features as her app but yeah I can say it's worth every buck!"

    "This is a good app for a person beginning to make there own tracks. I used it when I was trying out what works and what doesn't in music, but I kind of upgraded all my tools when I went pro. "

    "If you're looking to make hip hop beats, StudioMini XL will not fill that goal, but it will help you create studio level recordings. If you're looking solely for hip hop beat creation, you might want to look elsewhere."
