  1. Cool developer. Great app. I put in a request for a fader with a medium throw– the two options are good, but I wanted something in between. My request was fulfilled in this version! Very nice when a developer responds to feedback and makes things happen like that. What a feature-packed update!!!

  2. This software (first version) was the main reason for me to buy an iPad back in 2014. Very flexible and easy to use. Looking forward to check out the latest version.
