GrainBender Gets CoreMIDI Support

Grainbender for iOS

GrainBender, a software synthesizer for the iPad, has been updated to version 1.1.

Here’s what’s new in GrainBender 1.1:

  • CoreMIDI support
  • Factory presets can be renamed and saved as user presets
  • New interface skin

You now control GrainBender from an external MIDI source or use GrainBender to control any other MIDI gear. Automation recorded as bends in GrainBender patches is also sent via MIDI so you can now apply GrainBender’s automation features to other MIDI-capable intruments.
