  1. Oh well… I thought it might have at the very least been worth the $5 for the sample bank. alas it’s made of sparkly clean sudstep…. and it’s another IAP bank pusher to boot!

    Any more news on the new Loopy?

  2. It is a good app, but don’t sounded good for me. There are a latency on pad triggering and edit the pattern is not very easy.

    The piano roll is excellent, very useful.

    MPC Pro has a better pattern edit and a his sound capture is awesome.

    UVI made a good job, and huge version, more pro, will be released on 1.1 update.

    A iOS version of UVI samples will be appreciated.

    1. I agree with the pad triggering latency. There are more and more of these apps popping up that are incompatible with each other and have nothing new to offer.

  3. It must to had a dubstep demo?
    I guess I’m getting too cranky on the aftermath of the analogue orgy of NAMM 2015 winter show.

  4. Nice to see the dev having a presence on various message boards. Tells me they’re open to feedback and concerned about the user. I like the product and bought a couple of the IAP’s. Happy with all.
