Modstep has announced a version 1.0.2 update for its music app for iPad.


Along with critical bugfixes the new version of the iOS sequencer now adds audio recording, audiobus support, AudioShare, a better performance on all iPads as well as numerous tweaks and enhancements.

Changes in Modstep v1.0.2

  • Audiobus support: added 8 audiobus output channels
  • AudioShare export and recording of all tracks (hit the new tapedeck button to record all tracks with internal instruments or IAAs, the files can be found in the /Recordings/ folder and exported to AudioShare or the internal Sampler via the file browser). The recordings are quantized to the current clip quantization.
  • Improved Reverb.
  • Massively lower CPU usage especially older iPads will run a lot more tracks now.
  • IPad 1 support is back (unfortunately it’s getting harder and harder to keep it that way!)
  • New parameter on Sampler ‘One Shot’ that disables the ADSR completely
  • Clips, Scenes and Arm, Mute, Solo, Volumes per Track are now MIDI mappable to external controllers.
  • Tempo Up/Down and Nudge are now MIDI mappable.
  • CPU meter is much more accurate now and only monitors the audio-thread.
  • Tracks will now correctly remember their MIDI setup and restore it upon load.
  • Lots of small enhancements.
  • IAA Effects load the proper effect now.
  • IAA Effects will delete/restore fine again.
  • IAAs show the proper icons in the VST when used with studiomux.
  • Fixed a bug that would prevent tempo changes when Ableton Link was not activated.
  • Fixed a bug that would cause wrong IAA fx to be loaded.
  • Tons of enhancements and other bugfixes.
  • Fixed Clip & Track Import & Export.
  • New externally recorded notes and CCs will be played back immediately now.

Modstep is available for purchase for $19.99 USD.
