  1. BIG update, makes the workflow worlds quicker, and it was already quick. I’ve been playing with the desktop version for about a week and it’s a lot of fun. Especially mute/soloing and navigation to/from the mixer is a breeze now.

  2. I was hoping the price would have updated as well. Not that it isn’t good value as it is, but I was waiting for the extreme iStore value.

  3. yeah i knew why i didnt bought that ripoff beatmaker2 ๐Ÿ™‚

    what would be cool now is the abiltiy to synchstart via korg wist technologie, to use it with rebirth.

    now someone get me ims20 and i have all i ever wanted ๐Ÿ™‚

    ah and btw : apple! where is the update?
