    "If you are a music buff such as myself, this app will be an absolute treat for you to use. Not only is the app incredibly user-friendly for any level of musician, it's also quite intuitive. The feature list is extensive. The ability to seamlessly compose music using your basic knowledge of sheetmusic is quite amazing. The app comes pre-loaded with 15 different instruments along with multiple layering and viewing modes to properly compose and edit on the flow. Definitely give this app a shot!"

    "You know whats not fun while trying to play the piano? Looking at your tiny phone and trying to see hand placement. I would not recommend this unless you have a tablet or something and you're big into music theory. "

    "n-track is pretty cool if you're just looking to mess around with making some noise that might be cool to listen to. Otherwise I wouldn't really get your hopes up in using it to make sick beats you can sell on your soundcloud."
