I bought this couple of years ago. I think this is the first update.. great sounding app!
No Attack and Release knobs yet. I think these features would be great.
Amen. Sorely lacking, IMO.
Yeah it feels like it is missing all the stuff you expect to find in a music app… Still sounds good, but is still quite expensive for an app
Ahh, Mr Downvote strikes again!
If you only want a few of the main anthemic sounds, $11.99 is a great price. I wanted a lot more than that, so I dropped $149 on M-Tron Pro. Its well-appointed with various synth-type controls and a massive 3.5 gb library that includes custom sounds from numerous ‘tron players. The real thing is a beautiful monster of a maintenance nightmare, but playing one showed me why they’re not very common, ahem. How did anyone ever take those on the road, aieee!! This app would be too small for me, but M-Tron sits perfectly in the middle. Just FYI, because its worth knowing about.
