Two major, consistent bugs
So I’ve been having two consistent issues with BeatMaker 3 and I don’t see others experiencing them so thought I would report here:
If the app has been idle for a bit, and I open it up, as soon as I go to add any sort of plugin, the app crashes. As soon as I re-launch it and add a plugin, it’s fine until I let it go idle again. But it gets very annoying to have to relaunc the app basically every time I go to add a plugin.
Second, and far more annoying: every time I stop audio playback, BM3 forgets my CME Xkey Air is connected via Bluetooth. The keyboard is powered on, ready to be paired again immediately, but each time I press stop I have to go back in and reconnect to it. This doesn’t happen in any other app so I don’t believe its a problem with the Xkey. And I could always play over a loop, but with a full track you sometimes want to “jump” in at the appropriate time, and if you miss it you want to stop and rewind it back.
For what’s it’s worth: I’ve got a 2018 11” iPad Pro, the latest and greatest. This thing is an absolute beast and should definitely be able to handle this without any issues.
