Magellan now supports Audiobus in latest update 2.0.  Yonac’s Magellan is one of the best and most coveted iOS synth apps to date. Described as a professional analog modeling synthesizer for the iPad and iPad Mini, Magellan 2.0 has 2 independent polyphonic synth engines with FX rack, a total of six oscillators, dual filters per engine and much much more.

Fortunately for us being one of the best just wasn’t good enough for Yonac, the makers of Magellan. That’s why Magellan 2.0 includes features like Audiobus, expanded midi capabilities, expanded time signatures and a fresh new batch of Sunsine Audio patches.

Check out the video demonstrating the latest 2,0 features…
