Whilst it’s always good to see new apps arrives on the app store, and also to see new models for music creation, it’s worth noting that not all models work all the time. Soundtrap’s model is subscription based starting with a free app. Subscriptions work in lots of different sectors and industries, and indeed with some app models, so it’ll be interesting to see how well this is received.
I don’t want to pre-judge this at all, I’ll let you make up your own mind about it, but I have to say I’m curious to find out what reception it gets.
Make up your own mind … Here are the app’s details:
