  • Oscillators: sinusoid, noise, fixed frequency
  • Envelopes with adjustable level, time and curve parameters
  • Operator amplitude can be modulated by the stereo LFO, key or velocity

  • Voice modes: monophonic, polyphonic, legato, glide
  • Preset management inside the app
  • Numeric pad for entering parameter values precisely

  1. All the FM synths on iOS need sysex import. There are so many of FM synths there but none support this. With 1000s patches out there, this would be amazing.

    1. Or if not the ability to import, at least on their end, they could amass a big collection and convert them “the hard way” and provide a large well-organized library of patches within the app.

      Even if they just represented lots of different kinds of sounds and the ability to import components between patches, that would help.
