  1. Sweet!

    Anybody know if this works on iPad 1 still? Looks like it from the specs, but the intro seems a little contradictory.

    • Magellan still works…but as limited as before the update on iPad 1, at least on mine. Even with reduced polyphony, no oscilloscope, etc.,it is still a fine synth.
