    iPadOS is really getting to be an awesome always-ready ultra portable music creativity platform.

    It really deserves to have the world’s best electronic beatbox by now.

    I have Microtonic as a VST, have had it since the original version back in the day, but I’m really liking the environment and empowering nature of a platform more portable than a laptop, it inspires more compact compositions and helps to focus on smaller ‘projects’ and ideas (even though large ones are obviously possible).

    "Getting to be", you say? Hah, I guess you weren't around when we had to render audio files because computers were too slow to run virtual instruments in real time. And it's over 10 years ago that I nudged another brilliant Swedish plug-in developer to port his 303/606/808/909 emulation onto the iOS platform.

    So yeah, +1 for sure.

    But maybe just get a PO-32 Tonic in the mean time? ;-)

    I didn’t want to sound like an Apple fanboy so I toned it down 😜. But, yeah it’s an awesome and fun platform.

    A huge +1 for an iPad version, that would be the perfect companion to my PO-32/PO-35 :)

    Given the flexibility of the Microtonic engine and how nice the new skins look, an iPad version would be a big success without any doubt! There's plenty of drum machines on iOS, but none with a good synth engine. And none that could sync with PO hardware devices.

    I would even double dip for android/iphone version for only editing PO-32/PO-35 patches, even without the full microtonic capabilities, and I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one given the sucess of these little synths.

    Fully agree!
    Would be marvelous to have a microtonic version on iPad,
    A “ toned down” version to edit sounds and patterns for the PO-32, PO-35 and PO-137 instead of the full blown microtonic , at an affordable price would be fabulous for the many users of those Pocket Operators , and would sell a lot of those surely too..😁

    Here’s another vote for an iOS version. I’ve been working away from the PC (mac) more often and I keep wishing for a more portable way to swap out sound on the operators (besides saving the recording of the data transfer).

    I also just bought my nephew a PO-137. I’m hoping this will be his gateway in. He’s not ready for a PC version of the plug-in, but an iOS version would definitely be of use.

    If he gets past the Rick & and Morty sounds, I’ll be getting him a PO-133 and the PO-32. I might want another PO-32 for me too.

    Hello Magnus & Bro. I think you will sell A LOT more copies of MicroTonic --IF-- you will compile a stand alone version for Windows. Seriously, many PO users are NOT at all familiar with DAWs or VST. They want to buy MicroTonic for ONE REASON: to get new sounds in and out of the PO-32 and PO-35. The easier you can make it for them, the MORE copies of MicroTonic you guys will sell! I would suggest a "Special Version" for Winblows for Pocket Operator owners of PO-32 and PO-35. It should be simply a straight forward application that unzips in its own directory and runs in Windoz. I am SURE, this will be an income generator supreme for Soniccharge. As it is, having to download and figure out how to use VSThost and where and how it will somehow give access to MicroTonic is really rather unclear, confusing, and basically inhibits sales, IMHO. Your site has NO CLEAR INSTRUCTIONS. Please kindly consider my comments as it will definitely generate additional income for your fine company. Thank you for reading.
