Oh dear, has it been that long since my last post? I guess that time does fly when you’re having fun (or at least when you are really occupied with other things).

Anyway, here’s a quick status update: Destro is very much alive. I’ve decided to cut/postpone some features I wanted to add in favor of a quick release. What does that mean in practice? The 3-track drum computer is definitely in, but you won’t be able to customize the sounds except for gain level. I also scrapped the keyboard. The controls for both the drum sounds and the keyboard were on a third screen and felt out of place (felt like they were tacked on), so I scratched them for now. This leaves the synthesizer control screen and the sequencer screen, which make Destro very easy to operate and everything feels more coherent. A next iteration will probably include them again, but probably in a different layout.

Other than that, iPhone/iPod UI needs a bit of finetuning/cleaning. iPad UI still needs to be done, but should be done fairly quickly. There are a few minor bugs left as well, but nothing major at this point.

Expect more news in the near future!
