MIDISynth Control, from Lee Huddleston, got a major update today adding Ableton Link support and customizable user layouts. The update also includes one of the most objectionable IAPs I've seen in a while.
A new $6 IAP called Link+ lets you use Ableton Link to sync up 6 other devices connected via USB. That seems pretty shitty to me. Ableton offers the Link SDK for free to developers, so what the fuck is Lee doing? Turning around and charging users for implementing Ableton's free code; albeit elaborately.
This upsets me philosophically. Like people who take GPL licensed (open-source) code and then try to profit off of it. That's worse than piracy, it's privateering.
What's new in MIDISynth Control v1.0.6:Added Ableton Link support - this allows on-board sequencers to be synced to an Ableton Link session and can also be used for syncing LFOs/Arps etc to a tempo.
Functionality is provided for all purchased modules and there is also a Link+ IAP allowing syncing of up to 6 other USB devices (no other purchases necessary).
Added User Layouts. Each module comes with a single user layout - this can be expanded to 6 layouts with the purchase of the Performance IAP.
Each user layout can be configured to be 2x2 up to 8x8 (5x4 for a phone)
Added global view mode - If you have purchased more than 1 module then mixer, keys and drums buttons will appear on the main selection screen if there are 2 or more mixers, keyboards or drumpads in the modules. This allows fast switching between the screens without needing to dive into the individual modules.
Added chord mode to keyboard view.
Added support to support OS 1.8 change of configurable MIDI channels

I make original music.
The main app that I use is Music Studio (iOS) from Xewton.
I sometimes use GarageBand or Musescore.
I try to have a video released everyday of the week, except Fridays, at 2:00 P.M. Central Time.
Sometimes I will have varied periods of absences. I'm either doing other stuff, have no new music at the moment, or I just don't feel like uploading a video. Sorry for that inconvenience and thank you for understanding.
And I make almost all of my thumbnails on Paint 3D. Some of the other ones might have a screenshot of a Music Studio Project with the title written in it.
