    "I must say this got better MIDI controls compared to other effects apps. I make 80s and 90s guitar music and I find the controls here to be easier and my desired music are more conveniently pulled off."

    "I'm creating a background music for a creepy video. JamUp is the one I'm using for it especially with its reverb and stomp box options. The fact that this supports Audiobus makes it a lot more convenient for me. What's more, I'm able to share my compos to the community."

    "This amp sim is really top of this game. It has the feature of placing mic on or off axis which I find helpful. I always use the Marshall JMC effect on the opening of our gigs. There's even a version of the tube screamer and other options to add flavor to my music. Good choice!"
