  2. Yeah this looks great, I look forward to picking this up. Love what the ipad is becoming, especially apps that really exploit the touch surface either in instrument form ie. Samplr or controller form like this.

    The thought of lying back, the iPad on my legs, and playing around with Operator is quite enjoyable.

  4. When people gripe about ‘icrap’, when there’s stuff like this coming out all the time, it’s pretty clear that they are clueless!

    • Let’s face it: Most of the stuff you can download from the iOS app store is crap for lack of a better word. Instead of a few good applications for every use case there are sometimes dozens of programs that all more or less fail to deliver. Some programs remind me of something a clever child might have come up with in BASIC on a home computer. It’s apparently not so easy to write decent programs for iOS. And judging from my experience with programming for Mac OS I can very well imagine that iOS isn’t by far the friendliest platform for developers. Couple that with boredom, greed and other dubious motives and you get iCrap. Simple as that. The few good applications I tend to view as an exception to the norm.
