Magellan update – Yonac update their iPad synth with Ableton Link support

Yonac's Magellan synth has been around on the iTunes App Store for a long time - it was released back in August 2012 - and, while it was one of the first iOS music apps that I purchased for my iPad, much to my shame, I've never got around to reviewing it for the Music App Blog (although I have reviewed Yonac's ToneStack and Steel Guitar apps, both of which are rather good).
