One thought on “WaveSynth iPhone Synthesizer

  1. It’s a good first effort but I was disappointed in the sample quality and quantity (some instruments are the same but with different names). Latency could be a touch smaller but is usable. It would be cool to be able to use DLS or SF2s of your own and adding a midi compatible sequencer is probably within their ability. Worth the money.
