Have not had full time on this yet but it looks real good and there is now an application that straddles synthesizer sequencing with audio tracks and recording (The one exception being Soundcamp that is only available on certain Samsung devices). The direct recording will of course suffer if the device have high latency and it is not possible as in Audio Evolution and
n-Track Studio to use external soundcard for recording. But if is still fine that it is possible even if the recordings have to be nudged a bit.
Coming with the mini synth which is a capable synthesizer and the possibility to demo and get two more as in-app purchase. They did not cost too much one for around 1.50 and one for 2.50 or so. Then there is as in the older version the sample instruments. Everything is laid out nicely and think workflow wise it is easy. This version can also have separate FX for each track and it seems that there can be a bunch of them.
There is a demo version and for people upgrading there is the possibility to downgrade if the device can not take the new version or you simply do not like it.
If it works good I do not see why you would prefer the old version as this have much more options and the sequencer is so much easier to work with etc...
It is recommended to use at least Android 4.1 even if it is possible to install it on devices down to Android 2.3.3. Maybe one complaint would be is that the download is like around 700mb and it would be good to have alternative download for a smaller version with less sample instruments?
If using FL Studio as a DAW on PC it seems that this would a "must" as there is a possibility to load as a VSTi inside the DAW. It would have been cool if they released it as VSTi for other Daws as well.
So as said have not had time to dig deeper but so far thumbs up.
