  • I remember reading somewhere that roli will release a dashboard for ios soon. I don’t have the source so maybe it was just wishful thinking

    I think it was a roli official announcement. Anyways this app is exactly what I need and 20 sek (2 €) is a ridicilous price for such a useful app.

    Isn't this configuration also available in the Noise app? I'll be buying this anyway, as the Noise app is so badly designed, but just checking.

  • Bought! Roli really messed up the blocks iOS integration outside of their own app. I went all in assuming this had all been thought out since they marketed it at iOS as well as desktop. I’m glad to see someone is picking up the slack. Makes no sense that you needed a computer up to this point to make changes.

    Maybe this will get me to bring all my Roli kit out of the storage. Wish it supported presets, maybe on the next update hopefully

    Hmmm, i hadn’t used the app in a long time, can you point me to where this configuration is?

  • I’m getting a lot of connection drops. So far too unstable to get anything useful done but I’m looking forward to watching it develop.

  • I’m really hoping this gets stabilized and works well!

    You would think these settings would be in the Noise app but they really aren’t. The Noise app hasn’t been updated in forever, I hope that ROLI is still working a much more current IOS offering.

    I misread and corrected myself.

    Oi! Ya I didn’t read the “note” at the end of app description, about the app not currently supporting presets.
    This makes the app relatively useless.
    I want to request a refund, but I guess it’s my own fault for not reading the full description.
    I feel like the paper boy in the movie Better off dead- “where’s my two dollars!”
    I’ve emailed dev to see how soon this may change.
    In the interim has anyone got any use from this app?
