  • 2 pole multi-mode filter (LP, HP, BD, NOTCH)
  • 2 LFO’s and 2 analog modeled envelope generators
  • Stereo Tape Delay with time modulation
  • Lush Stereo Reverb with modulation and self growing decay
  • True stereo, analog modeled multi mode chorus
  • Arpeggiator with 4 modes, tempo sync and hold function

  1. Beautiful Interface! Good to edit on the iphone.
    Sound good too.
    well done!
    Courious how much the VST version costs?

  2. The VST is still in Public Beta so it doesn’t appear to be for sale yet, You can try it though. I couldn’t get it to respond to pitchbend, modwheel, or aftertouch. I’m sure that’s coming soon, right? I did have some fun getting lost in the sounds though. Has some interesting modulations I’m not used to seeing. The LFO to delay time for one.

    1. In this case is an EG that is basically a simulated capacitor reacting to inputs. It gets charged, discharged, etc. Instead of an algorithm generating ramps or exponentials mimiking an EG.

      1. how would that effect the shape of the actual envelope? I’ve heard of t bridge oscs like in an 808 have a slow decay at the end

  3. Cool, but crashes on my Nexus tablet, and has terrible latency issues. Can’t handle all four voices.

  4. Being able to design sounds on the go, and work with them inside my DAW? Sign me up! Wish more developers would go this route.

  5. I think this may be the best recreation of analog in the digital domain I have ever heard. Sounds fantastic! As if they even got the Filter FM and crossmodulation right, which needs a lot of oversampling in digital. Yes, modelling of the impurfections of analog envelopes also is an important contribution. You know what an electrical circuit is? It is trying to create order out of a chaos of wiggling atoms and swirling electrons. While an algorithm is approaching matters from the opposite direction. Instant buy!

      Beautiful idea. Thank you.

    2. I disagree. The best analogs I’ve heard on iPad are Arturia iMini and IVCS3.

      This one has a few nice sounds but seems average overall.

  6. Having read thru most of the verbiage for this Synth, what does one get for unlocking the xtras at 15.00 USD?

  7. Love the sound. Can’t stand the 16 screen editing. I doubt I’ll upgrade to full because with so many other VAs on iOS with better single screen editing, I don’t think I’d really get into using it.

  8. Great concept – magical sound! Got it after 2mins of playing, few soft synths reach this level of authenticity, not to mention on the ipad (only Arturia so far). Hope to see more from these guys!! 5/5
