+ We are all volunteers, we do not get paid anything to make this app. We would be humbled if you checked it out. 100% of proceeds go to support the AudioKit open-source project.

* This app has no official affiliation with Yamaha or the DX7 or DX7II. FM Player is an open-source project to bring the joy of music making to the world. We appreciate Yamaha's beautiful instruments.
** This app has no official endorsement with any artist or producer named in the description (including Herbie Hancock, Jay-Z, Drake, etc). We are humbled they have used our apps. They have received no payment or otherwise compensation for using our apps. :)
* This update makes the Stand-alone version more stable
* Small stability updates to AUv3 as well
* App updated for iOS 15. Note in AUv3: preset changing works fine in most hosts (AUM, Cubasis, etc). In early iOS 15 versions of GarageBand, sometimes the app needs to be loaded and restarted. Then preset changing will work. This may be fixed by the time you read this.
Hope you all stay creative and healthy.
Please take care of yourselves and your fellow musicians. :)
