Good app - Makes all the Craft’s parameters accessible in real time

Good app. I do have one problem with it, the 3 buttons (Keyboard, Touch pads and Settings) in the lower right corner are grayed out. Everything else works great

Great thanks!

There is A LOT to be said about a company that in their development process chooses not only to release a free app for managing their synths (in my case the spectacular Cobalt8) but a well thought out, approachable, intuitive, and outstanding app. The Cobalt8 by itself is fantastically powerful. This synth is then coupled with a top-notch app that is accessible on multiple platforms. You totally have it together. Thank you!

It did not update the plugin

I am using Ableton Live 10 on High Sierra. Ran the update, the plugin still shows v 1.3. It no longer allows me to update the plugin in the App Store, so it did something. However, even after restarting my computer, rescanning my plugins, etc., it still shows V1.3. (VST3)
