The Voice Synth 3.1 update brings a lot of new things …

  • iOS7 inter-app audio input/effect support:
    • Use Voice Synth as input or effect in other inter-app hosts
    • Control Voice Synth remotely via inter-app MIDI
    • Control the host recorder remotely via Voice Synth
  • iOS7 inter-app audio hosting support:
    • Select inter-app input and effect
    • Record input directly into the sampler
    • Record the final result into the tape recorder
    • Operate Voice Synth’s tape recorder remotely from the input and effect
  • Voice Synth engine can now be used together with
    • sampler recording, to hear your live-transformed voice while recording
    • tape play, to sing live while playing an earlier recording
  • Re-enabling of audiobus on iOS7 (we recommend to use inter-app audio)
  • Note: iPhone 4 does not support inter-app audio and audiobus
  • Bugfix for use with VoiceOver on iPhone

Interesting use of ‘other inter-app hosts’, I suppose they mean Audiobus right?
