iPad Music Software: Way Out Ware’s SynthX is generating a lot of buzz, because it’s from a developer with a strong track record and because it’s one of the few iPad instruments that tries to push the envelope a bit.
Here’s what GearWire’s Len Sasso has to say about SynthX:
WayOutWare’s new SynthX delivers a surprisingly powerful and playable synth to your iPad. SynthX’s analog-modeled engine derives from KikAXXE, the company’s plug-in emulation of the classic ARP AXXE synth. The two synths can even exchange patches, and the KikAXXE factory banks are included with SynthX. (Some tweaks are necessary when exchanging your custom patches because SynthX has a few added features.)
SynthX is a great buy. For $9.99 you get a different performance perspective, a great sounding portable synth, and easy interconnectivity, should you choose to go that way. I highly recommend it.
