Today's Audiobus update promises only "Performance improvement on iPad Air 2/iPhone 6" and you may be wondering what actually means! Do iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6 users get some new magic Audiobus version? Nope. There were some performance issues on the new devices, which Michael explains and fixes in this recent Dev Vlog.
DrumLine Apps has released a whole new app, complete with Audiobus, dedicated to Snares.
SnareLine iTunes Description:
Heads up, Snares! Need to practice your feature? Input it and play along. Change tempos, edit, revise, save, listen, and learn. Can't get that sweet lick out of your head? Put it in and share it with your line. Tweak it, add rimshots, buzzes, dynamics. How fast can you play it? Test yourself with various tempos. Drumline Apps puts composition in your pocket.
Basses and Quads - input or download the snare parts and play along with the line. Be more than ready for rehearsal. Drumline Apps puts the drumline in your pocket.
The brand new Snare App uses the sounds of Paul Rennick's killer 2012 Santa Clara Vanguard snare drums, sampled by tech extraordinaire Brian "Chavez" Lowe.
rsTouch, the dedicated Reason control surface app, has been updated with support for 12 new Rack Extensions.

Marcus Padrini did an interesting video comparing a lead patch on the iMS-20 app and the reissued MS-20 Mini. I've been tempted by the new MS-20 desktop sound module, but the app sounds too good to justify the $1,400 hardware price-tag.
