  1. Just purchased and tried this and have to say it works pretty damn well. Most of the (scale mode) functionality of the LaunchPad Pro for a hundredth of the price. If the developer can incorporate the different overlap modes of the LaunchPad Pro (where you choose the amount of overlapping notes per row) this will be a MUST-HAVE, PERFECT APP. As it stands now, still highly recommended. Awesome job.

  2. Seems really straightforward and easy to use, looks very cool. Now, if it could play chords, instead of just single notes at the touch of a button, it would be an instabuy for me!
