Ratings and Reviews
Impressive but has annoying bug with iPhone
This app is loaded with features, which is quite impressive for a $5 app.
BUT it is unable to save/load canvas snapshots (multipage layouts) on iPhone. You can save them, but when I try to load then it says "unable to load iPad canvas snapshots on iPhone/iPod touch", despite the fact that the pages were made on the exact same iPhone!!!
I've tried this with both an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 6+
this means I have to open each page individually. It's not a serious issue but really really annoying.
The app hasn't been updated in 3 years so I'm worried it's been abandoned. This bug is pretty simple and obvious...
I just discovered this app and wow!
To think it's an open platform with upload-able
Controller for different synths ...
Today I tried the matrix 1000 editor with wifi control and it's just great (the m1000 has some cpu limitations but still)
Still to try my microkorg. Anyway it's a bargain for 5 bucks!
Powerful MIDI controller for iPad
This app is simple yet powerful. It's an incredibly flexible and configurable way to build custom MIDI interfaces on iOS devices. I used it to build a custom MIDI interface for Adobe Lightroom (photo-editing, not music-making) using the open source MIDI2LR plugin. Just what I was looking for.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
