That demo tune was awful.

The demo's final part sounds aphextwinnish a lot, that contrast with previous half time part. Well worth a smile.
The app still not available in Russia. I'm curious, what evil plan Roland have while doing that?

I tried this app. Hated the UI. Deleted it. Won’t being trying it again. Also, all these apps claiming to be free by requiring a ton of IAPs to really do much pisses me off.

Everyone here probably got the free iOS unlock offered last March so you can see for yourself, but I find this to be a full featured DAW with a fast and flexible clip arranger which lets you record your performance to audio or the timeline for further editing. The ZC1 Synthesizer adds a fourth synth engine and which seems to be a preset player having very minimal parameter control with the V2 unlock giving more presets and access to effects that look to only apply to the synth engine and not track effect inserts. The synth unlock might be fine for those who have already invested in the Roland Zen synth environment where you could transfer over presets you have made in other applications or bought from Roland cloud, but for me already having the V1 unlock the V2 unlock doesn't add much. As a first iOS DAW though $10 is a decent price, especially if you have a few choice AUv3 synths and effects you can use with it.
