Wow! ...and, uhmmn, WOW!
Great! ...I wasn't expecting Audiobus for this app. Thanks!
I got this, intending to use it to create unusual and original sounds for the music I write and arrange, but I've been having so much fun just playing with it that I'm mysteriously missing hours of my life. I am very pleased – the possibilities are seemingly without bounds. It can produce melodic content that is dripping with harmonic resonance and warmth, or flat out spine-tingling, chest-twisting chaos. It's a multi-effect processor with a heavy emphasis on MULTI. Everything can be active and automated at once. I suggest you get this even if you don't think you have a use for it, because you'll enjoy it either way (as long as you take the time to figure out how it works, which isn't too hard, especially using the .pdf guide).
