No audiobus or Jack? Too much rewriting and not enough checking in to see what every other developer is doing… Background audio is just a subpar solution these days
Agreed. I love this app and was stoked to see it upgraded, and for only 2 bucks it’s not like I can complain. But it IS a perfect, perfect app for doing drones and the ability to add effects with Audiobus would make it one of the best synths out there for its elegance & simplicity. Does what it says it’ll do, perfectly.
