Any plans for an Android version?

The USB connection is brilliant.

It uses the cable you use to charge your device. It shows up instantly and works like a charm. Congrats on this ambitious launch :)

I bought the template pack, currently at 21.99. It is CRAZY hitting the automation record button While playing keys AND multi-touching Operater's parameters.

For Windows does it need Loop Midi or anything like that?

It is all automatic. As long as you have the script installed and choose Touchable in control surfaces. I am on windows 8.1

It does not show up as an actual midi device, and infact, you do not even select any input or output. Leave those to none. Despite those, it still does Everything. Browsing, triggers/arranged notes, controls parameters.

Digging it so far... Noticed a bit of flakiness in the midi editor, will try to pin that down. When will the Glue VU be working? :P

Is it possible to 'open' Drum Rack channels in mixer view within a Group? I couldn't do it and I thought it was to be included in v3. :cry:

great work guys! keep it up!

im wondering if this is a big re-write (as 1-2 was)? i still love 2 and am using it as a very stable performance tool. . im sure you only release things that are very stable 8) but if you can tell me how much changed "under the hood" i would appreciate it.

thank you thank you!

Drum racks cannot have the same behavior as within Live yet. Hopefully soon...
