Akai have responded to my chief criticisms for their SynthStation app. Previously you'd have to navigate through menu after menu to get to most synth paramters, and there was no on-screen keyboard for testing patch changes if you did not have a MIDI keyboard plugged in.
Both of these issues have been corrected, leading to an elevation in rating from Pass to Meh. It isn't an amazing experience, but it sounds good and it is only $2.
Still think I'm being too harsh? Share your thoughts!
