LayR by Living Memory: a very interesting iPad synth!

Living Memory software has created an amazing iPad synth with LayR. It is made to be layered (surprise!). It can actually play back up to 256 voices of polyphony!!!!! I’m not sure if my iPad will support it. Of course with all these layers, LayR is a great ambiant synth but it also has a very powerful step sequencer that can create complete beats of up to 8 different sounds. It could event be a beatbox! Check out the video for more details.
