Launch key with mini pad keyboard arpeggio bug

I bought the launch key mini, but when you switch the launch pad to another kit the arpeggio no longer functions, it just flashes and you can't get it to stay unless you unplug everything, and star all over please fix.

Otherwise a great app and for the one complaining about not being able to record you have to run audio bus with garage band as the output then you can record all you want but I do agree it should have the ability to work with both at once.

Great iPad Synth

I've been using Novation hardware synthesizers for a while, and this software synth is exciting. It has a lot of great sounds, and the ability to tweak those using some of the most popular synth controls. The UI makes it extremely easy to modify sounds live. This is the first iPad synth I've used where I can easily see myself using it live.

It's a toy

Let's you play with sound by moving circles to alter some parameters, kinda neat for 10 minutes. Sounds are lame, it's better than the launch pad app which really sounds like a kids toy, but it's not a song making tool, it's surely not even comparable to any other 3-4 star synth app. As a toy yes maybe 4 stars, music making 2 stars is generous. Look at me wiggle this sound HaHa...BUT Novations 49SL MKII Midi keyboard is AWESOMENESS. I'm throwing that in to be nice, but yes it is very good quality, so don't judge their high end stuff by this cheesy app.
