I don’t normally post on general app updates anymore, but this upgrade for SoundGrid has lots of good stuff in it too so I thought I’d make an exception.
Redesigned UI and visual effects
To keep UI simple, elegant and attractive for novice users. If you have difficulties placing notes on the grid now you can enable assistance lines to make life easier.
Few people use all eight available patterns because it may be hard to switch them while playing. In Song Mode filled patterns will be automatically activated one after another enabling you to create longer compositions easily. Also now you can touch pattern button twice to switch pattern for all layers at once; or to switch pattern and start from its beginning in song mode.
Switchable musical scales
There are only 16 rows (notes) on the grid and much more keys on piano keyboard. And now you can select set of tones you want to be available on the grid.
Now you can record audio files while playing. Then either easily upload tracks directly to SoundCloud or send by email as is or as ringtone
More and more Sound Banks
Additional sound banks now installable from external servers. Either my official server or your own.
Ratings for shared grids
Many new grids become shared everyday. Now you can rate them and best ones will deservedly be always on top when sorting by rating. New shared grids since last update now marked too.
Other fixes and improvements
Many bugs were fixed and many things made better. One of them is improved (means reduced) latency and UI reaction.
You’ve gotta admit that’s a lot of stuff to go in an update.
