Very nice! FunkBox is one of the apps supporting Audiobus at launch. I've been playing with it a lot in testing. I'm warming up to it, and this update sure packs a lot of goodies, so I may have to revisit my Buyer's Guide review.
Developer Synthetic Bits has a great video of it with MoDrum, BassLine and an Electribe EMX. All following FunkBox's MIDI clock!
