Strange doesn't quite sum up Reactable, but it is the closest word that I can find that describes the worlds most unique music player.

What's New

2.2.1 - Fixes Crash in devices running iOS 5.1 and below.

2.2.0 - New Major update! Includes several new features including:
1. Complete redesign of the sequencer object:
Create more complex musical ideas better than ever before, with increased available octaves from one to five, and the possibility of making different length notes inside your sequences. Which can now span into multiple bars giving you extra room for creativity. After you’re done you can navigate through them using the new user interface to scroll or jump directly to a specific location using the scroll bars. There is also a piano roll feedback for easy reference of the current sequence.

2. New polyphonic sampler format inside the Sampleplay objects:
Create new instruments and sound banks using your own samples. Simply assign each sample to its corresponding note and play them as usual, the intermediate steps get pitch shifted to their corresponding notes; each sampler has a polyphonic envelope control that allows you to modify the way these samples get played.
You can also save the sound bank and reuse it in your future tables or download tables and increase your musical palette.
3. Added virtual keyboard subpanel
New virtual keyboard panel allows you to instantly trigger notes. Use it in combination with the sampleplay objects to perform live or with the sequencer to compose musical phrases on the fly.

4. Added bluetooth headphone setting.
Go into settings and connect your paired bluetooth headphone with reactable mobile.
