Yep, missed it too. Is it worth the two bucks?

That'll teach you to check the forums more frequently.

I can't say how good or otherwise it is because iTunes has decided to stop recognising the presence of my iPod FFS.

I thought that I just about live here already.
And jeez, I been around three years before the moderator above(no offense Spaceboy) and I'm still just a newb.

Ok then, I'll bite. Never owned anything from Akai before, and I guess this will be a good enough excuse to get an IRig or a Line6 for my "old" Iphone. Which also gives me an excuse to upgrade the phone...and/or wait for the new pad.

Slight hijack, and I will ltake it to another thread but BTW, which midi interface is the better for iphone/pad?

i picked it up for free.. it's pretty sweet actually. lots of drums samples to picks from, and they even give you some control over them individually (pitch, level). 3 synth tracks, with pretty in depth editing. it's no ableton live, but pretty badass for an iphone app.

plus you can save tracks, and e-mail them to yourself really easily as well.

i'd say it's worth $2.00 if you actually plan on using it.
