    Not sure why you’d ship in this case, as those (other than Bluetooth) seem like baseline requirements these days. Let me know when this is fixed, and I’ll get it…

      1. Seems a bit limited scope for customers because no one else will really want it except those who have the PC/Mac version as well.

  2. Last time I checked, there weren’t many MIDI sequence editors for iPad. Garageband & Genome are the biggies, but they have some limitations. Auria is an amazing audio environment, but no MIDI sequencing (and relatively expensive).

    One advantage I see with the MultiTrack Studio app (based on the description) is the ability to import and export MIDI & audio files (via iTunes). However, the website, description & manual don’t give nearly enough info for me to make a decision on it.

    Price is currently $17.99. (40% off of the regular price of $29.99).

    1. Cubasis does a great job mixing audio and MIDI tracks, and has Audiobus, IAA, and a ton of other connectivity options. I picked up up for 50% off during their last sale and it’s terrific.

        1. It’s true that I can’t think of any other iOS daws that support odd time sigs and changes in time sig but it does seem that aside from this (quite niche,IMO) feature, for quite an expensive app this is missing a lot of functionality that some people would consider a basic requirement these days.

    2. Cubasis, beatmaker 2, nanostudio, and others I’m probably not aware of can all open and edit midi and mostly without having to use iTunes to get the data in and out.

  3. if anyone’s bought it yet, can you easily enter triplets and is there any swing/shuffle/groove setting? two things that seem to be common omissions for ipad daws
