SXSW Announcement: New Features Coming Soon to Tabletop

Long-time users of Tabletop know that with each new release of Tabletop, we've been working not only to make new devices and effects available for in-app purchase, but also to include lots of new content and functionality free of charge to all users who install the new version.

Past updates have added the ability to post songs effortlessly to SoundCloud, support for swing and expanded tempo range, 3-band equalization and *lots* of new samples & presets for the M8RX, Gridlok and other included devices. Today we're excited to tell you about a few more new features that will be appearing on a Tabletop near you very soon!

  • Auto-routing - Drop a device on the table, and you're good to go!

  • Improved gestures - Swipe easily between devices

  • New iPad - Retina display support!

But of course a new Tabletop release wouldn't be complete without a couple new devices and effects, and we've got a couple of really cool ones planned for the next few updates as well. Over the next two days on the Retroblog we'll be going into more detail on some of these new devices, so be sure to check back every day, and follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook or subscribe to our email newsletter to make sure you're the first to know about all the latest Retro-news!


  1. Really liking these improvements. I have a few suggestions:

    — I'd really like the Overdose distortion to be a bit crunchier. It sounds a little thin as it is, and I'm trying to get a really thick, crunchy acid sound with it and the TT-303.

    — Add a knob to EKKO that widens the panning for the wet signal. This would be really useful.

    — A step sequencer for RS4000.

  2. I look forward to seeing what that Autotune thingy is

    1. We announced some info here: (you were the first to spy it tho)

  3. You'd think MIDI support would be somewhere on the list of priorities. Auto routing is neat and all, but the software keyboard is no match compared to the real thing.

    1. We love hardware keyboards! You hear about this Miselu thing we're working on? :)
