What's New in Version 2.0.2
* Fixed a bug that could cause songs created in version 1.x to not appear in the Song list.
* Improved iOS7 compatibility
* Minor GUI tweaks
Nord's Drum and Drum 2 are fantastic synths and this app is fun for experimenting with beats and textures. I would really like to see a chromatic mode to take advantage of the ND2 hardware, even just one or two chromatic channels would allow complete techno bangers to be produced!
Love those Swedes... Again, ND2 is the best drum synth known to man, read up people, the Red Box rules!
