Looks very interesting for a midi controller. I keep thinking of a iOS game that I've played called Chordy! I think it's spelt the same . This music app looks quite cool though

I would be interested if anyone can comment on what they use their old iPads as with what apps for being a midi controller

Will have to wait until thesoundtestroom gives this a spin. I watched the video and I don't think I saw any glissando effects.

Not much of a demo - it looks like there is a lot more to it than what is shown in the video. It reminds me a lot of Chordion and Polychord, so it will definitely have to have something special that the other two don't to be worth a purchase.

The video demo shows you touch a chord button and then touch another button to play it. That is not going to work. The chord must play on the first touch. How could you play a rhythmic chord progression by having to touch twice to play each chord?
