RE: New looping track - Modular Synths JASUTO FREE VST and AUplugin modular synt + very cool Iphone app

Cool... I like the randomness of it..
I have also aquired a modular synth, Jasuto on IPhona AND they have a FREE VST PLUGIN.. It's very, very, very fun and while not exactly the "real thing" it can do some pretty need tricks even with samples. Chek it out !!! I will soon post my first expirments with it.. http://www.jasuto.com
Not sure if it can do clocked events, mayby inside live or together with Mobius??
THanks for sharing KEvin...
