---Thanks for the update! After I learned how to layer multiple instruments I started using this program on almost every song our band does. The sounds are top notch but I do wish for a little more control over effects and filters but you can't have everything...

Thanks for the compliment! We are working hard to bring new features to SampleTank on iOS. We'll continue working with new features and sounds in future updates. :)

Would love to have audio recording and export, or ideally audio copy\paste. It would make ST the linchpin in my workflow then.

This update is a joke and show us that your company is not willing to listen to users requests.

Virtual midi is not broken Topaz, it was never here. Core MIDI only, and as you said, it is broken with most App when used internally.
But they already know that since months.

I patiently waited for months for... That! :roll:

Your sounds may be good (if we consider an m4a export option as good...) but your not the only one on the market.

I definitely deleted Sampletank...

Blablabla, always the same answers, You know what we are waiting for cause we already told you:

Virtual MIDI, AudioCopy (in WAV, of course...), etc... All this stuffs that nowadays make the difference between an app that ios musicians can use and a "wanna be" app.

But you know what, just forget it, I already wasted too much time trying to make you understand that...

What he said, the requests have been made over and over again but no matter how many PR guys post on forums it either never gets to the main devs or they do and get ignored,

There are a set of features that are pretty much standard in most pro apps, it's obvious if they are left out folks will get fed up.

Cue fanboys.

Bummer! Are you sure? That's really important to me! :-( Brian or Obik, can you confirm or deny this?

Now I'm a little confused (which is easy for me :oops: ) I thought Virtual Midi existed......

@audijunkie:

There is no Virtual MIDI support in Sampletank, it'd be lying to say the contrary.

Sampletank support CoreMIDI, which means that if you're lucky, it will communicate, in certain circumstances, with some apps. It's really a matter of luck, you have to try with each single app you own to see wich ones accept the connection. But you'll be able to connect only one App. Which one will be connected depend of the start order. It is quite obscur. It is exactly the same with Music Studio for example, by the way Music Studio will have a Virtual MIDI update soon.

All CoreMIDI apps behave the same, but it is in no way similar to Virtual MIDI where you can choose inputs and outputs app and a lot more.

Not to mention the pretty strange build audio engine of sampletank which make it uncompatible with most of the apps. I guess that's why we are still waiting for Virtual MIDI in Sampletank.
They'd have to rewrite the whole sound engine to make it run smoothly with the majority of the apps.

We have to prioritize new features based on a number of factors.
We are continuing to develop SampleTank, and will get to all of it.
Keep in mind that iOS 6 is not far off now and will contain many new features, which could make some of these requests moot.
