    Does anyone know if my app 'Instruments' is being featured anywhere? I don't have my pb to hand.

    Yes, in App World it's being "Featured"...

    I noticed that some people on this forum have more than one pb. Is there a way to make two or more playbooks work together for an instrument like the piano

    It would be better if instruments could zoom out/in, Ex. zooming-out a little for the piano to see more keys

    I noticed the Xylophone keys won't play at the same time, the piano and drums will

    There is no record feature...the native Voice Notes app will record the sounds but it's 'choppy'.

    Otherwise it is a great app

    I have an update almost ready to go. It includes a jam mode where the device goes split screen and you can play with a friend.

    I delved into recording, and I started making a multitrack recorder but couldn't find a way in action script to run it out as an MP3, I know you can make MP3s easily but I couldn't find a good way to merge down the multi tracks into one.

    I did build a guitar for it, but it was shelved, I couldn't get a nice render on my bendable strings, I am still looking into it though, it's 90% done but I don't want to release it until I a, happy with it.

    You can expect the update just before Christmas or just after, depending on how much free time I get.

    Thanks for the info about being featured.

    What is this jam mode. I thought about the question I asked, about linking pbs, but actually it's super simple because you just scroll to the right spot on each pb and then play.

    @Innovatology yes I think I looked at that, it's not encoding the MP3 that is the problem, it is merging all of the tracks into one mixdown. If anyone has any suggestions I'd like to know so I can implement it.

    @anthogag jam mode splits the device, you can pick the orientation and split mode. With a split device you can have two instruments on screen at once, allowing you to jam with a friend or play two instruments at once by yourself.
