My FM Essential Story
Today I went to a local (NYC) music store to check out a MIDI controller.
I brought my USB cable and camera connecter in the hopes that they would let me activate FM Essential.
The salesman was very easygoing and encouraged me to go for it.
Once I made the connection and turned on the app, my iPad got all the patches instantly. I was expecting to have to wait a bit. It was pretty obvious that they'd already been downloaded, they just needed to be unlocked.
The only thing you have to do when your device connects is to choose a skin. This is not a big deal, as you can change the skin later in the app settings.
Anyway, the salesman was very impressed when he saw that I had all those sounds. So I invited him to hook up his iPhone using my cable. He got very excited when he saw all those amazing sounds on his phone.
Anyway, he said that because I turned him onto unlocking FM Essential, he was going to give me the "Friend and Family" discount if I bought the keyboard.
I really feel like I've got a new audio units synth. Very happy about this because I'm using Garage Band a lot more these days.
