No apologies necessary. We can agree to disagree, that’s fine. 🙂 Sorry if I’ve been harsh, it’s a particular pain point that keeps being hit by this industry so it breeds a blunt vocabulary after a while.
It’s obvious that audio processing or hardware integrations with Android will be hard to do for a long time. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with Digitech choosing to work with the iPad for their IPB pedalboard for instance. It’s just dissapointing that this entire industry then subsequently ignores that enormous chunk of the market where they *can* connect with customers and provide a better experience. It’s an enormous waste. Beyond my personal impedance to use the product (sucks, but I’ll live) it’s the wasted opportunity to innovate that gets to me.
It’s also a vicious circle. By never making musicians apps for this market, it creates an enormous bias towards this other system (like you said: “go buy an iPad”), this isn’t healthy either.
I have taken it up with Eventide directly. They respond as earlier in this thread … “it’s only made for iOS, that was our target, you’re welcome to come work for us and fix it”…
