Dear god yes. VCV on iPad, please.

It's open-source so there is that possibility... though perhaps with its complexity that is a remote possibility. https://github.com/VCVRack
I've been anxiously awaiting a demo for this one! I'm surprised Doug doesn't have one out yet!
Good thinking, Bram. I've updated the post!
And @That guy: You found a bug in today's code adventure with your comment. I've been working on v3.2 features and had to roll-out a small part of that first... unfortunately I only included a small part of that small part, and this broke on your comment! It should be fixed now.
Shit... this just revealed a very weird bug in the site code. These sorts of things are supposed to be prevented. I actually have a lot of code in the site designed to prevent me from embarrassing myself!

I think a conflict between iTunes' API and my recent attempts to shorten app names in the AppDB caused some kind of weird history conflict. The site thinks the last update before this was 1.2.3 in March. It thinks this 1.3 arrived on Friday, and doesn't even know about the 1.3.1 update yet.

Thanks for pointing that out PoD, I'm going to have to figure this one out.
That's an excellent question, dumbledog. I know another reader has been excitedly using the D-50 editor on a D-05 too. I'll see if CoffeeShopped can provide some insights!
We had a bit of a back and forth and concluded their press should probably have read:
Finally a switch with real flexibility to work with 4 popular apps.

I feel really bad about this, sardeeni. I'm sorry for misrepresenting it. This back and forth with them went no where, so now I'm trying to get you a refund. I'll email you so we can continue this privately.
I believe you're correct on both counts. I don't have a sequencer when using it as AUv3 on my end. I just double-checked and couldn't load it as an IAA either.
@sardeeni: Shit! I'm very sorry to hear that. I did make the assumption that based on their claims that it "Works with hundreds of apps" that it was using MIDI. I'm sorry to have played a part in misleading you, and extremely angry at AirTurn for being lead to do so.

Where did you buy it? Maybe you can ask for a return.

I've sent an email to AirTurn asking them to justify their nonsense.
LOL! I'm glad you like it. Your email was the one that broke the camel's back and made me finally do this post.

Bradley C was the first to bring it to my attention, along with some good reference links and additional information, so shout out to him too if he reads this!

While trying to fix the Preset Upload/Download features I seem to have screwed up new forum posts.

If you can read this: I fixed it!
@stub: If you can read this, question marks are now allowed in forum titles!

Let me know if you notice any other weirdness. The forums are the least tested part of the new site.

Toz Bourne suggested that a topic for the forum would be a clear explanation on how the iTunes links work here. This is a good suggestion, because I've often received emails from people who want to support the site, but aren't sure how the iTunes links actually do their thing. I've probably gotten over a hundred emails like:
"New app XXXXXX is out! Can you put up a link to it, so that you get the affiliate credit?"
I'm extremely grateful to hear people have that kind of thought for me. Even when my finances weren't struggling, I super appreciated the idea that someone would delay their purchase; to wait until they could share the revenue with me. Fortunately you don't have to wait!

By clicking any of the iTunes links here, from the device you're going to purchase on the App Store, you're setting a little identifier on iTunes.

Here is an example, this link goes to Animoog:
https://itunes.apple.com/app/id471638724?mt=8&uo;;=8&at;=11l4Kv
The &at;= signifies that my affiliate code is 11l4Kv. This code is automatically added to all links that go to iTunes from here.For the next few hours, any purchases you make will be credited to the last affiliate identifier you clicked on.

The exact way that this works has changed a few times in the past, and I'm not 100% sure how they're handling it now, but the rule of thumb is: Just click on any of my links and when that takes you to iTunes, search for the new app you want.

This also works on other things besides apps. For the next few hours if you purchase songs, TV shows, or anything else on iTunes... I'll get a cut! And my cut does not take any money from you, or the developer. My commission comes out of the 30% that Apple already takes from publishers. I'm not allowed to say how much the percentage I get is, but it's more than 5% and less than 10%.

So thank you very much to everyone that makes it a point of supporting the site by using my links! It all adds up, and is a big help to my overall income.

There is one exception to all of this though, and that's advertisers. Advertisers often have their own affiliate codes, and campaign codes, in their links. If you click on the Howl ad for instance you'll get to this link:
https://itunes.apple.com/app/apple-store/id1067562312?pt=561151&ct;;=Discchord&mt;=8
This lets developers track which ad campaigns are driving sales. Since advertiser revenue is still my primary source of income, please use ads to purchase apps you want instead of my links; so that they know their ads are working!
I resisted it for years, partly because I didn't want to moderate one, and mostly because I assumed no one was going to use it. Prove me wrong!
