  1. this seems to check alot of boxes i’ve been looking for in a mobile interface. Does it provide phantom while it’s battery powered? Would make it an awesome field recorder as well.

  2. i take my previous words back: no proper audio output…
    why do they keep targetting these products to guitarists with all th synths available on ios?
