Now back on the great music making short list

One of the first DAWs is now up to date with current features.
Great instruments also accessible via midi. Excellent interface.
You can use Audio unit instruments by choosing an AUM port/track as the IAA instrument for a midi track. It’s not direct but works just fine and has benefits like using audio unit effects for the track. When using an iPad or any IOS device you have the benefits that come with it, so using AUM that way is more of a feature than a workaround.
Music Studio is a lot of fun that doesn’t require much to learn. You can open it up and be creating music almost right away. It doesn’t take long to master and find ways to do what you want.

Amazing app + thank you to the devs!

This is an incredible music app, worthwhile for those wanting a vast array of options when creating songs. I’ve been using it for a few years now, and thanks to the capability and options, my legitimate love for music and musical artistry has grown. For that, I sincerely have to thank the developers. Keep up the good work guys!
