Is this gonna be better than Stagelight?
Have no idea have not switched over to the new app yet and will do it tomorrow.
There is a 90 day limit to switch account and it is necessary to spend any credits that you may have beforehand or loose it...
Copied and pasted the process at the bottom of the post and there is more information here:
So I like Stagelight (great with the MPE keyboard control and the sampler) and do not know yet if there is any big differences with Zenbeats.
Guess that it is interesting that a company like Roland is getting into the Android space and the price is the same as it was for Stagelight.
In either case here is the Play Store info:
