  1. This app is abysmal and it does NOT have virtual midi, the dev never responds but now took out virtual midi as feature from app description.

  2. I have written the developer on many occasions and the support has been great! I have even requested features that made it into this release. Are you sure you are writing the correct address? I contact the developer at [email protected] – It’s a great app, I’m not sure why you’re caught up on Virtual MIDI, core midi is more practical.
