Here's all the details from eaReckon...
BloXpander is a music application originally designed to meet the requirements of musicians and engineers in "live" situations.
BloXpander combines the power of a computer and the efficiency of a dedicated device.
Its interface has been designed to match this basic specification. It is visually attractive and clear, the construction of projects and the access to prepared instruments and effects is very fast. The plugins manipulation is direct (especially when BloXpander is coupled to an external MIDI controller).
