  1. Can I filter out iPad news? Sorry, they just crowd out the news stories I am more interested in. It seems every other story is about another iOS app. There are so many iOS apps and interfaces, but that is just not my synth scene. Doesn’t really inspire me.

    1. I can understand your feeling. But I don’t think you could do that. There are those categories off to the left side, I guess you could just go there when you need a hardware or DIY fix.

    2. Not that there are THAT many iOS news, and not the there are that many any kind of news.

      How difficult it is to browse the typical 2-3 news articles really?

    3. No that’s not generally how the internet works… also I’m not sure if you’re actually asking a question or attempting to air your contempt for iOS synths openly, given there aren’t many articles being published about ipad software and there aren’t even many new articles posted here each day…

    1. Yup, it’s attention-seeking. There’s a fecking mouse wheel and you use it to scroll past anything you’re not interested in. I’m pretty much only interested in iOS music apps and scroll past some other features like the analog modular synths.

    2. Isn’t there some way to NOT see stuff I don’t like? You know, like ugly people and the TV show Two and a Half Men? Is there someone I can contact about removing these from my personal reality? Thanks a bunch xoxo

  2. I like the iceGear synths, especially Laplace.

    I wish they included more modulation routing options, especially with velocity and AT. (poly AT?)

  3. I’m curious to know what the Laplace fans here have managed to do with the synth? I purchased it and then un-purchased an hour later. I found the presets dull and uninspiring. I realise the point is to make your own but it seems to me the presets should really sell the synth and in this case I just found them flat and lifeless. I modified a few of the patches too. For some reason it’s also a very quiet synth which further diminishes the experience. Even with the volume at 11 it seems much quieter than other synths.

  4. same here, I was on the cusp of deleting it a few days ago but I didn’t. yeah, I found that if I worked those parameters to my tastes, it does warrant itself as a keeper. it’s true that the stock pressets are dull, but that’s probably a matter of taste. I feel the same about Casini and had exactly the same expereicne mirroring Laplace. The same applies to this poly synth. I just programmed two ripping patches that suit my tastes and sonic vision. This is kinda like my experience with the EP/Organ/Piano expansion Korg Module…I got it not for what it is (NOT my scene)…I got it because I get all the Korg stuff, minus the Gorillaz thing, and I just program the hell out of them to my liking. I has milked those Korg Modules into something else. They sit well within the stuff I refer to as music:)

  5. This is a pretty straight forward synth, with not a lot of modulation options, but it sounds great and is really easy and fast to edit/program. The key to getting great sounds is to push the resonator. Some fun things happen. It’s also very cool that the delay effect has it’s own dedicated filter section, so you can get an analog style dulling with each repeat, or pump up the drive, res and feedback and go for some more dramatic results.

  6. Amazingly fun to use synth. and good sounding. One question though. Can i transpose the keyboard on the ipad or do i only have 2 octaves?
