  1. Beautiful UI and nice sound, but I don’t quite get the point of a sample-based FM synth – surely the whole point of FM is that you can dynamically modify the timbre?

    1. Yeah, I really don’t understand the point of an FM rompler. I think the only reason I would buy this is to support the AudioKit team.

  2. I hate how many of these ios synths are ipad only. I know there are parts of the experience that’ll only work with the larger screen – but i make a ton of music on my phone and would buy a bunch of these if they worked on an iPhone – even if a few features were limited or removed.

    1. Do you think there’s that many people trying to do serious music making on iPhones vs iPads?

      To me, the bigger real estate of the iPad makes all the difference, and I’d guess that most people would feel the same.

      Have you thought about getting an iPad Mini? They’re pretty cheap now, and it might give you a best of both worlds combination of the portability that you want plus all the great apps that need the bigger real estate of the iPad.
