Update: The free version was also updated over the weekend. Developer Fessaboy posted about it in a comment here:

No Audiobus, limited numbers of chord sets, and only one sample, but it's got all the MIDI goodness, and is probably useful to folks. If you dig it, please buy me a cup of coffee by going to the full version. If not, that's ok too!

You may recall my video from last week where I used Live Guitar's MIDI and Audiobus support to do some interesting iPolysix jamming. Another feature I was using was the ability to import whole chord progressions from songs via Twitter. This was really handy for me, because I don't have a fucking clue how to read guitar tabs. x03256? 330111?

Fortunately if you search Twitter for the #sbdlg tag, which you can do from inside of the app, you'll find a ton of tabs for many popular songs. You don't need a Twitter account to grab them either, but you will need one to tweet out your own.

Here is a demo of the new features!
