New iOS Synth, Poison-202, Designed For ‘Vintage’ Sounds

Dmitrij Pavlov has introduced Poison-202 – a new iOS software synth designed for creating ‘vintage’ synth sounds.

It is inspired by the classic hardware synthesizers of 80’s and 90’s and offers oscillators, cutoff Filters, ADSR-envelopes, ring, cross modulation, LFOs, sync, super-saw oscillator and more. The library of 150 built-in factory presets includes patches inspired by the music of The Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Azzido Da Bass, Darude, Kraftwerk, Daft Punk and others.

You can play directly on your iPhone / iPad or you can use it with a USB MIDI keyboard. 

Features:

  • 2 oscillators with selectable wave form and pitch
  • 5 oscillator waveforms: Saw, Pulse (with adjustable Pulse Width), Sine, Triangle and Super-Saw
  • one Super Saw oscillator generates 7 individual saw oscillators at the same time, with adjustable Mix and Detune parameters, reproducing famous classic analog strings and hoover sounds
  • additional (third) sinusoid sub oscillator + noise generator
  • 2x-oversampled internal sound mixing frequency (96,000 Hz on iPhone 6s)
  • 2 TVF (time variant filter) modules with Cutoff, Resonance, Keyboard tracking and ADSR envelope, 12 dB/octave
  • 2 TVA (time variant amplifier) modules with ADSR envelope
  • It is possible to pair two 12 dB TVF to get one 24 dB filter
  • Pitch envelope (Attack/Decay) for each oscillator
  • Ring modulation
  • Sync modulation
  • Pulse width modulation (PWM)
  • Cross frequency modulation
  • 2 LFO modulation sources with Frequency and Fade-In parameters
  • LFO cross-modulation
  • 6 waveforms of LFO: Triangle, Sine, Saw, Square, Trapezoid and Random (Sample & Hold)
  • 4 LFO modulation destinations: Pitch, Filter, Amplifier and PWM
  • Note Portamento
  • 3-band EQ for each patch
  • Digital realtime effects: Distortion, Bit-Crusher, Chorus, Flanger, Delay, Panning Delay and Reverb with adjustable parameters
  • Master brickwall type limiter (can be switched on/off)
  • Two signal flow connection structures: Parallel and Serial
  • Solo playing mode with Legato switch
  • Pitch Wheel with adjustable pitch bend range (2 – 24 semitones)
  • Modulation Wheel with assignable controls
  • Receive MIDI events: Note On, Note Off, Note Velocity, Control Change (Modulation Wheel), Pitch Bend Change, Program Change, Bank Select LSB/MSB
  • Arpeggiator with 6 selectable modes and 12 rhythm patterns with tempo and swing feel control
  • Scale play mode when playing onscreen keyboard with over 40 different scales to select from
  • Voice polyphony up to 24
  • Up to 100 user presets to store
  • Scalable and movable onscreen keyboard with key velocity control
  • CPU usage indicator
  • Volume meter
  • Show Oscillogram feature (can be switched on from Settings Page)
  • Inter-App Audio supported (MIDI-Instrument mode) to use Poison-202 together with other musical apps and sequencers on your iPhone/iPad, such as Garage Band and others.

  1. It’s driving me out of my mind
    That’s why it’s hard for me to find
    Can’t get it outta my head
    Miss her, kiss her, love her, wrong move you’re dead
    That girl is poison
    Never trust a big butt and smile
    That girl is poison poison
