Here’s what’s new in AC Sabre 1.2.0:

  • Fixes for iOS11
  • MPE (Multi-dimensional Polyphonic Expression) support
  • New “Guitarist” Panel Set with POWER CHORDS
  • Vertical pluck axis fixed

  1. Oooph. I guess this is a fun thing for the kids. I’ve got their slogan:

    “All the shredding without all the shedding.”

    (based on an obsolete term for instrumental practicing “taking it to the wood shed”)

    I don’t see how you can directly apply this to polyphonic MPE– I suppose if you were sequencing and layering it would be doable.

  2. Total garbage, this must have about 10 lines of code, linking your accelerometer to a midi channel. Feel sorry for anyone who buys into this trash.
