One Red Dog Media has released Arctic Pro Synthesizer – a new software synth & vocoder for iPad.
Arctic Pro is a modern subtractive synthesizer for the Apple iPad that does not aim to model or re-create vintage synths of yesteryear, but instead is designed to offer “a rude, rough, bold and tough palette of sound”.
That palette of sound includes two HyperOscillators, a sub oscillator, dual filters, easy to re-order master effects and a vocoder. Presets are designed by sound designer John ‘Skippy’ Lehmkuhl, who has contributed to the sound design of Korg synths since the M1.
Here’s a video introduction to Arctic Pro: Continue reading

Voice Bot is a real time channel vocoder for the iPad. Using the microphone, your voice modulates the synth resulting in a robot like singing voice.
