I do like saying that, and I really don’t get enough opportunities to do so. In version 1.1 GridComposer adds Audiobus and Inter-App Audio support. Now you can stream live audio directly to other Audiobus and IAA compatible apps! Also 1.1 brings improved Midi support. You can now send notes via Core-MIDI to other apps.
As I’m sure you already know I’m a bit of a fan of more ‘unusual’ apps for making music, and from a first look this app certainly looks like that.
I haven’t had a play with this as yet, but here are the details, you can make up your own mind.
