  1. Once again – their GUI looks cluttered because of very little visial separation between module blocks and all controllers / button / switches appear the same ! Also with the colour schemes – all of the controls are more or less the same colour as the background.

  2. Having used PatchBase with a bunch of synths, the layout works really well and doesn’t feel cluttered or squashed. Much easier than using MidiQuest or other editors. And your patches are backed up via iCloud. Great way of keeping of old synths relevant and easier to use. Perfect for racks, which is my primary use case.

  3. I’m using MIDI-designer. Great app – but… IPads have too little screen estate to become really good controllers.
