midiLFOs update – midi modulation ‘toy’ from developer Art Kerns goes universal

If developer Art Kern’s name sounds a little familiar then, for iOS musicians of a more long-standing nature, it is probably because Art is part of the Synthetic Bits development team that makes the excellent Funkbox drum machine app. Obviously liking to keep himself busy, Art has also been working on a side-project more recently and that product landed on the App Store back in July when I first took a look at it; midiLFOs.

midiLFOs review – midi modulation ‘toy’ from developer Art Kerns
