The desktop version will be designedfor desktop use, ipad port is exact port, one simple example would be VST support.
No idea, i was just giving you a difference lol
Small side note, nothing has ever come close to XT 1.4 for crazy ass setup, it could run as a vst inside its own standalone version, keep in mind it was the most advanced modular DAW ever released, its was off the chain, if it had been updated to x64 instead of that pile of crap xt 2, i would never have looked at any other software including bm3.
So BM3 VST/AU running inside BM3 standalone, ahem yes yes yes and xxxx yes.
Xt 2 is garbage, i was talking about xt 1.4 which was amazing.
