touchscaper Update

touchscaper, from Rob Jackson, was updated with a Chord Navigator to help you find interesting progressions. The update also adds some other goodies, like a 5 dot probability option that sounds like fun to explore.

What's new in touchscaper v1.3.6:

Hi Folks,

So… this release is mostly about chords. Chords is a big part of what touchscaper is all about, so I wanted to explore that a bit further with the new chord “explorer” - hopefully you might find it an interesting source of inspiration. Also, lots of other little fixes and tweaks. MIDI support is in progress, but not ready for release just yet - thanks for your patience. Hope you enjoy this release, and look after yourselves and others! -Rob
