Download XPad http://www.crudebyte.com/xpad/ seemingly for free.
Well, it’s free download followed by very expensive and massive gigabyte downloads for in app purchase.
Free version has just one preset - WTF?!
Additional packs are pricey and very big - many gigabytes…
To make matters worse, developer of this app decided to BLOCK it from Mac Apple store, so unlike other iOS developers, he decided to close the the door for M1 based Macs 🙁

Well, its a sample player aimed at selling sample packs. For that limited feature set it has to be free... They tried to add a unique feature as argument and failed... I can play those sort of slides easily on my LinnStrument... If you need that, get a proper controller...

I just wonder what the developer is gaining by limiting this app to iOS only.
I bet that opening this app to M1 based macOS, he would get way more notice and income as well 😉
Obviously main income comes from soundpacks which are paid for, app is free.
Bought 2 packs already, sounds brilliant 😀
Mac M1 please 😏
