We are pleased to announce the second Minihost Modular beta is now available for Windows and OS X. This beta includes improvements and fixes based on user feedback so far. We thank the beta-testers for their enthusiastic response to Minihost Modular.
Minihost Modular is a modular environment for hosting/interconnecting VST/AU plugins based on a custom modular engine especially developed for this purpose. As a standalone, Minihost Modular can be used as an advanced VST or AU host with modular routing with some sequencing recording/playback capabilities. As a VST or AU plugin, Minihost Modular can be used to extend the capabilities of your existing DAW software with its powerful modular, recallable, environment. Minihost Modular bares some similarities to FL Studio's Patcher but has an extended capability as a self contained host.

The connection is made automatically over a Wi-Fi network. Get it here:

Is this available for Windows 8 Phone: Not at this time. We will looking into it.
What about Kindle Fire: The IL Remote APK is available for download here from the user forums and can be side-loaded. Instructions are also linked on the page. Just log into your account or create one to get access.
Can I connect via USB rather than Wi-Fi: Not at this time. Please note that the transmission latency of MIDI over Wi-Fi and USB will be almost identical, the largest latencies in the system are related to touch interface detection. Reports from the field with over 30,000 people using the system are that the Wi-Fi connection is stable and robust.
I can't get FL Studio and IL Remote connected: Please check...

FL Studio Mobile 1.3 for Android is now available from the Google Play Store. Version 1.3 is a free update for existing customers and introduces the online shop where you can download new instruments. There are two FREE instrument packs so you can try it out without spending a cent.
What about iOS vs Android feature-set convergence? We plan to add Audio Tracks and Wave Editor by April 2014 so stay tuned for further news on that in the FL Studio Mobile user forum. We will be calling for Beta Testers in the near future so to gain posting access to the forum use the SETUP tab and REGISTER button. Following that we will be moving to a completely new code-base merging FL Studio Mobile for iOS and Android, eliminating the feature-set differences. Of course, all these are free updates as usual. Thanks for your patience Android users.
FL Studio Mobile Android 1.3 What's New?
In-app shop with 7 sample packs (250 instruments/kits), 2 of which are free
FL Studio Mobile 1.3 for Android vs FL Studio Mobile 2.2 for iOS
The feature-set of the Android and iOS versions will be harmonized in future updates, including the addition of the following features to the Android version:
Audio tracks and wave editor

While projects, .flm format, are compatible between Android and iOS, if audio tracks are present they are ignored. If instruments are not available the MIDI data is loaded and the a default instrument is used.
