  • State-saving for AUv3 (except for bassalicious)
  • new Templates for Ruismaker, Ruismaker FM, Korg Volca Kick, boom808, boom909, DM-2, bastl micro granny and FLUXFX (thanks to Tom Wies and Oscar South for the last two!)
  • updated Templates for Roland Boutique synthesizers

Bugfixes

  • fixed a bug that would cause mono AUx to play only on one side
  • improved AUx loading
  • improved IAA handling
  • fixed a bug that prevented state-saving of AUx

Video description:

“I was on SuperBooth this year for creating video content. More gear news will coming soon. Please support me on Patreon if you enjoy my content: https://www.patreon.com/synthanatomy?ty=h

Bastl Instruments Microgranny 2 is a hardware granular sampler. In this video i want to show the integration to Modstep App. In this jam I mapped the parameters with Midi CC to Modstep and I use only this X Y Pads. In a second date, I will use automation with Modstep and Microgranny. A template will be available in the next update of Modstep.”

modstep 1.1.1.0 is small, perfectly formed and has some very cool new templates

Here’s what’s new …

A smaller update containing mainly bugfixes and a bunch of new Templates:

  • Fixed an issue that could lead to IAA apps stopping playback after a while.
  • Fixed a bug that would make it impossible to change the recording status after loading / creating a session.
  • Fixed a bug that could lead to automations being deleted when recording.
  • the ADSR Pickers on the Sampler & Synth can now be recorded and automated again.
  • iOS 7 support is back (we recommend updating to iOS 9)
  • IAA apps that are not currently loaded are shown with a grey icon again.
  • Added the possibility to start & stop the selected clip via the clip button in the main menu bar. To access the quick access window to jump to different clips, a long tap is required.
