Amidio has released a Pro version of Pearl Guitar, which includes the Pro Upgrade IAP as the base price.
Pearl Guitar iTunes Description:
The premiere 6-string acoustic steel guitar simulator, Pearl Guitar delivers absolutely stunning sound - the most realistic, lush, organic and warm tone you will hear in the mobile digital domain. In addition, Pear Guitar features Retina graphics, smooth animations and stylish parallax effects animating the strings!

Doug from The Sound Test Room is not only showing off the new E-Theremin MKII app's recent Audiobus/IAA update, here he is taking his iPad 4 to the limits with tons and tons of apps all running at once. His trick is to crank the Audio frames to 1024. This will introduce slightly more latency but reduces the CPU usage enough for Doug to go nuts!
