I tend to agree with most of the favorable five-star reviews for this novel. Even as a senior citizen, I found this novel a fun read. As a teacher in public schools, I test to tune-in to what my students are reading. I think this novel would be enjoyed by a lot of teen readers and it would create a amazing film for the non-readers. The protagonist is a spunky 16-year-old girl. I search that most YA readers tend to read "up" ...looking for protagonists who are a couple of years older than themselves. My only disappointment with this novel is that it includes a bit too much profanity for me to comfortably recommend to junior high and most high school readers. IMO, some of the expletives could have been replaced with milder versions without a loss of result or honesty. I fear this may also hold the book out of some school libraries ...which would more tragic than "Sweeney Todd."
This is a nice fast read with a fun plot line, a small demonic action, and a lot of boy-crazy high school e most refreshing aspect of this book is that the high schoolers seem fairly well adjusted. They are not stereotypical YA fiction characters: depressed, angst-ridden loners. The romance has a documented growth with the authentic feelings of nervous excitement that come with first love- instead of the clandestine, star-crossed terms of clarity, the phrasing and odd punctuation are sometimes a small over-the-top (even for a high school girl's inner monologue) but I will give the author a pass because she nails the descriptions and excitement of what it is like to be part of a high school theater production. She perfectly articulates the all-consuming nature of high school performance groups, sports teams, and clubs. When you are there it always seems like the education part of the day is just there to hold you occupied until the next extra-curricular activity only other true beef with this book is that the author has peppered the book with VERY obvious foreshadowing that there are at least two more intended installments. I miss the days when authors could tell a story in under 1000 words. However, I will give the author props on her conclusion. She did in fact end this book without a major cliff hanger, and she gives you just enough that you still wish to read a small more without the overwhelming frustration of an incomplete story.
I ended up finding this book at the local library, so there was no need for me to own it anymore. However, I didn't end up finishing the library copy either because it got too complicated. It's almost as if she had written two endings, and instead of choosing between the two, she just stacked them together. I will describe more, but it will include some so, this is a rip off of that Buffy episode where Willow falls for that computer demon Molloch.*******Once they catch the librarian, that's where it could have ended. But the capture of the librarian is foiled by the same person who told them how to capture him. So then, they have to ask him to ask another demon for support who will only support Cynthia if she goes back to the demon globe or plane (I have no clue) three times. But she doesn't have to. It's only if the demoness calls upon Cynthia. It's not set in stone. It's really weird. They bring this other demon in, but the demon is telling Cynthia that she has to support her three times? In the demon world? It really doesn't create was amazing up until that point, minus the Buffy rip-offness.
The thing I like about this quirky, spiraling story is the ever going commentary and internal struggle in Cyn's own mind. Who hasn't (at some point in their youth) been fascinated by a teacher or thought up crazy scenarios for a strange situation? I laughed out loud at the numerous twists and inner conflicts of this teenager's tale. Very entertaining.
So after paying for the full feature set, it connects and it seems effective - however, due to the fact that it's an in-app purchase, it doesn't present up in my family library. I have an acc for my phone and one for my smartphone - would be nice to be able to use family library to have the application on both devices.
Test the ver first to create sure it's compatible with your phone. If it is, use the option. It's created life SOOOO much easier in live situations. You'll need an OTG adaptor, and then you're set. (I got mine from a local Radio Shack.) The ver was worth every penny. Very intelligent and simple to use.
Wow! This application has it all and is very simple to use! This provides a much easier and more portable means of accessing Tone Studio functions than lugging around a laptop. Plus it contains lots of "secret" amp models and lots of other cool stuff. The application also makes it very simple to find for and patches from Fb groups, websites, the cloud or just about anywhere. It worked perfectly with my Samsung Tab A Android device smartphone using the OTG USB adapter. I bought the full ver and I love it!
APP DESCRIPTION DOES NOT EXPLAIN THIS IS AN ADVERT NOT AN APP UNTIL MORE THAN HALF WAY DOWN THE "ABOUT" PAGE. A DELIBERATE DECEPTION IN ADVERTISING AND CONSUMER RELATIONS (edit: added in response) Does nothing without a post purchase. Very not good form and consumer relations in this decision. Small more than an advert for thr app. IT IS CLEARLY MARKED AS AN EDITOR (ITS NOT). NOT CLEARLY MARKED (far below the fold). DEV HARASSED ME FOR A LEAVING NEGATIVE REVIEW (added in response)
Just recently discovered that this was available. Tested it out and happily purchased the full app, which allows you to save patches. Works perfectly and allows simple access to all setting available via the Yamaha computer app. Nice easy and thought out UI that is simple to use.
This is just brilliant. It untethered my THR5A from my computer, and allow me use the full capabilities of the amp interactively in an environment. Couldn't be happier. Yamaha should have place an application like this out at the start. Thank you to the developers
This is a amazing application to have with the Thr! Love the developers for this one. Infact, thanks to this I can use my thr live on scene to switch between presets using a Bluetooth keyboard (by assigning various hotkeys for various patches)! Works like a charm 😁
Love it thanks. Would be amazing if you could add double tap on a particular editable parameter to return it to standard setting quickly. I know i could turn a dial on the amp but that defaults all. Mainly for things like eq and the fine tuning of the effects, compressor etc
Updated Review - Looks good. Found an advanced setting I wasnt aware about to turn on the OTG USB. As soon as I did that the amp connected to the amp. Importing TSLs was simple as was selecting patches. some seemed to take a second or two to load, but nothing too serious. Haven't had a possibility to dig too deep into this, especially the EQ and editing patches etc. But on this showing it has a lot of promise.
This does what it says on the tin, although the UX could be improved. - Switching between library and editor via the sidebar is clunky. Would be nice to automatically switch to editor after selecting a preset - There is no method to add a preset to another label when viewing a label - Selecting some of the sneaky amps (orange) causes a very loud static sound. I suspect that this is a katana v3 bug, but it would be nice if the poor presets would be removed from librarian
Just started using app. Works as intended, but Yamaha needs to fix cranked up volume problem when loading presets. Scares the brown items outta me each time! Even if master is at 0, the show overrides with 11 so it seems. I've had the THR10 for a while now. Glad I found this app, cause my laptop wont see the amp.
I've been waiting a few years for an application like this. At latest I don't have to plug my thr into my PC to change and select settings. My only comment would be to be able to adjust the overall output volume for those tones with less master volume and gain. Overall a heavy thank you.
An almost amazing app! It unlocks the hidden features oft the Katana (e.g. more amp models, custom chain order). It would be fully excellent if it had an option to upload all 4/8 channels with a fresh set of patches with one click, for live situation. 5 stars nonetheless :)
This application has created a heavy difference to my two Katanas. I set them both up some months ago but knew that some adjustments were needed. However, getting a laptop out, firing it up and connecting the amps has always been a nuisance, especially if you wish to create changes in the middle of a gig/rehearsal ... no laptop anyway! Ive always got my phone on me so I can now create adjustments any time. Brilliant!!
I bought this application the day I bought my Katana. It unlocks so much more potential not needing to plug in a computer. It allows you to easily toggle from all your patches. Boss should be trying to this application because it would support compete with the Mustang GT app.
Workd very well indeed, very responsive. The UI can be a bit unintuitive at times, but everyone has a various idea if how the UX should be. That is the only reason I give 4 stars and not 5. simply because there is still some room to create it even better. unbelievable level of control over the katana though, and for me, much more convenient than tone studio. connected flawlessly on both my phone and tablet, works great. Even access to things you won't even search in Tone Studio. impressive
Amazing app! I installed this on a smartphone running Android device 7.0 with an OTG dongle and it detected my Katana 50 V3.0 immediately. I bought the full ver and it works great. The editor has all of the features I wish - including sneaky amps - except the fresh parameter/exp peral control, but that doesn't really interest me anyway. Edit: Tera Echo help is awesome, and makes this application just about perfect. Thanks for creating this unbelievable app!
Amazing but missing something Overall this application is amazing does all I wish it to except you can't adjust the overall volume output you can only adjust the master volume for the gain, otherwise I would have given 5 stars. It would be amazing to see the developer release an modernize which would let for overall volume control via the application then this application would be complete.
I purchased the THR 10 and soon realized that Yamaha's application SUCKED!!! Considering there was no footswitch to change presets. Then I found this application in a chatroom. I checkrd it out and immediately LOVED it. However, I took it a step further and discovered the Airturn Duo Bluetooth footswitch with an android device device controlled my THR 10 in a very limited way. So I sent a note to this application developer who immediately updated the application to work with my Bluetooth footswitch to controll my device better. In short, I know have a bluetooth foot controller for my Yamaha THR10!!!
Amazing app, really straightforward to use but lots of control options. It would be amazing to have a few more library management options, like adding a label to all patches within a YDL on import and being able to select lots of patches easily if you wish to delete several of them at a time. Really impressed so far though.
it works perfectly. It does what it says it does. it's cool that I can tweak my amp settings from my phone. and I can even access the compressor. it really smooths out the sound. it would be nice if I could obtain into the effects deeper. but it does what it says it does. Well worth 8 bucks
Beautiful cool app. Bluetooth would knock it out of the park. I am using an Android phone so I use an adapter to obtain the standard USB to match up with the smaller USB on the phone. I tried to search a cable that would connect the phone to amp without the adapter but was unsuccessful.
Amazed to search an editor in the application latest night - just what I was hoping for. However, the application now repeatedly crashes when I attempt to edit on my THR10C, also some of the edited settings will not save. Modernize 13th November - the application is much better now, this developer is extremely responsive to feedback.
Don't listen to the negative or neutral ratings. This is better than Boss Tone Studio, which is good, but you have to with Windows & at least a laptop. This is much more portable & customizable. It loaded no issue on my Samsung S5, Note 4 & my dedicated old Samsung 7" Tab 2. It runs flawless, even on old android device 4.0. For the of a set of strings...just it if you have a Katana.
