Well there you go, you wait for ages and then two come along all at once! Today Genome 2 arrives, and the 2.0 update in the app store doesn't really do it justice:
- New 'longest pattern' song mode
- New Instrument Rack with built in instruments and effects
- Fixed hanging notes issue on pattern switch
- Dozens of internal fixes
- A Metronome
- Usability improvements to the pattern editor
Also, here's what White Noise Audio have to say about it ...
"Grab the latest update in the app store! As always, please report any issues with the new version. If you have valuable work, please back it up first. This new verison changes a few things with the file format and you may not be able to use new songs on older versions of Genome should you need to downgrade.
This was a large update - future updates should be smaller and more frequent. We plan on focusing on ease of use in the pattern editor and new instruments for the Instrument Rack for the next set of updates."
So it'll be interesting to see what comes next for Genome ...
