No ADSR with the sampler

it's 2013 and this app still doesn't have ADSR when your playing in Sampler mode... if this was added i could actually use this synth. Below is my previous review, and as you can see things haven't changed.

I've had this app for a while now, and only purchased it for the sampler section. I contacted the developer about adding an ADSR section to the sampler, but all they seem to care about is adding more in app purchases, one of which I bought, "the patch editor", but still........ No simple ADSR...... Something every other synth, or sampler would have......... Save your money and buy something else.


Needs an upgrade for: audiobus, midi, and volume Control. I also think synth designers need to stop with the knobs and make sliders. So much easier on an ipad surface. Don't look as good but every one will thank you and wonder why no one has thought of this yet. Plus more space for more controllers when using sliders.

Perfect for my purposes

Got this app to help me learn music theory, particularly major and minor scale construction. It's been just what I wanted it to be: Simple and easy to learn. if only music theory were so easy.
