Klevgränd Intros Syndt Polyphonic Synthesizer For iOS, Mac & Windows

Klevgränd has introduced Syndt for Mac, Windows & iOS – the most advanced synth in their Kanvas series of synths.

The oscillator waveform can be morphed between pure sine to pure square, and supports altering of pulse width. Both the shape and pulse width can be modulated by two independent LFOs. It also offers fine-tuned low pass and high pass filters combined with a separate filter attack setting, (optionally based on velocity).

The additional LFO can be shaped exactly as the oscillator, and optionally controls filters, gain and pitch (using a modulation wheel or just automatically). This LFO can be synchronized to a AUv3 host.

Video Demo:

Features:

  • 70+ professionally made presets

  1. The demo track sounds nice. Seems like with the basic square & pulse you can get some chiptune kinds of things. That minimalist GUI is something I’d have to get used to . I don’t mind that kind of thing, but at a glance I just think, “It won’t do what I need it to do, it’ll just do what it does.”

  2. I don’t really understand all the love hysteria about these minimalist synths…. Just because i don’t understand doesn’t mean I’m right though. They seem to be well respected. Why are they?

    I bought one of them (forget the name) and it consisted of a few very flat and boring presets. I think it was a pad synth? I got refund on it. I bought jussi (?) and have kept that.

    So what’s the appeal of these minimalist synths?

  3. Why are desktop versions of synths/samplers/drum machines/etc. considerably more expensive than iOS versions? Are they more expensive to license? More to develop? More features on the desktop version? This is an honest question. I’m thinking of this one, and also of the Korg Gadget, which is (at full price) $40 for iOS and $300 for VST.

    1. This is a good question. However I think Korg didn’t do a good job of promotion or naming of the desktop version of Gadget, because this is one example in which the price is comparable to the iOS version as the desktop version includes all the synths that work in Gadget that are separate purchases in iOS, plus all IAPs for those apps and for Gadget too, except for one. If you do the math they are much nearer in price than most all other software examples.

    2. Can’t answer your question but know the Gadget for iOS is considerably more than $40 if you get all of the IAPs that the desktop version comes with. Not $300 but in the $150 range.
