    i would be using this right now but the the buttons to load, clear and reload simply don't work on the vst plugin.

    emailed the developer, no whirred back.

    this app is great though. the kontakt, battery, halion type sampling plugins are way too overdressed for those of us raised on akai 1000's.

  2. That's strange..
    Maybe a bug?
    Or you could maybe try to installed it again.
    Thanks for the info!
