    1. yeah, that’s what’s interesting to me. here seems to be a video with some functionality for the desktop (linux) version. go to the 1:50 mark – if it’s plug and play to this, that would be pretty amazing

  1. can this do multiple midi channels out? like for instance, can i sequence an anode AND a meeblip on two different midi channels with multiple sequences, or is this just spitting out one sequence on one channel?
