Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Would never have guessed I was given Amber to review for a magazine sometime back, and never got around to even loading it. My bad! Eli presents the app in very comprehensive review. I found his doubling via DAW examples very illuminating (not just for use with Amber, but for new ways to think about doubling, in general. Very useful!
