Love the new update! Curious about the lack of panning. Is that something that can be added back in? Not a huge problem if not.

I think it's interesting that people complain about "the 303 way of entering notes". If they knew their "303 History" the randomness of entering notes in the 303 was part of getting that "acid sound". I like to random-ize a pattern and then make adjustments to it. Give it a try.

On to my main question. TB2 on my iPhone has 4 buttons on the info menu: Session Manager, Manual, Save As... and Back. The session manager has four buttons: Load, Save, Delete and Back. The Back buttons on both menus are missing on my iPad. Is this correct? I have re-started and deleted/reinstalled but it is still the same. I can close the menus by tapping outside of them but that seem counter-intuitive to the way it shows up on my phone.

Thanks

Hi, yes panning is planned to be added back. We had to cut it in order to make technoBox2 run on a iPhone 3G S, but now with the faster iPad 2 and iPhone 4 we'll likely add panning and some more goodies to future updates.

That's correct - the back buttons are missing. The way to close pop-ups on the iPad is by tapping outside the window. I know it feels weird and I agree, but its really up to apple. We tried adding regular back buttons but discovered iOS disabled them and there is also a risk that Apple wouldn't approve the app. But that said, this is one 2.0.0 and first releases usually have some rough edges. Cleaning up the menus and making better use of the iPad's screen is definitely planned.

Thanks for your quick reply. Interesting that it's an OS issue. Glad to hear about panning and "other goodies". What might those be? Smile

Mike, are you going to make a proper GUI for the iPad? Easily you could see all the synths and fx without scrolling pages.

I'd consider getting an iPad if there is an app like this, when I got money, of course Embarassed

Trust me, we tried many different variations of the GUI before we settled on the current GUI, it just works best this way. We had everything on one page originally but it felt awkward and cramped.. And with the current GUI the machines are actually quite similar to the size of a real 303 and 808/909 and that is something I personally enjoy.

Pro tip: You can actually grab a knob and hold and keep tweaking even if you flip between different pages Smile
