Tired of the same old sounds? Yeah, us too — so we created birdStepper for iPad. birdStepper provides you endless new musical possibilities by making time-synced effect automation fast and simple. Filter sweeps? Check. Dubstep wobbles? Ch-ch-ch-check. Complete annihilation of your sound? Better believe that’s a check.
