  1. seeing as how there are no resistors or actual analog circuits, I think it's safe to say it's digital. It DOES do a pretty good approximation of some analog waveforms though.

  2. Brilliant 1st post!

    Always liked the nlog synth feel. Missed some of the dirtier in your face sounds you could get for example out of Bebot and some of the other more basic synths, tho.

  3. I jusy bought this, it is up there with the best VST's that cost £100's (god knows I have most of them!), with this, korg electribe, etc, mixer/live controlers, the iPAD is becoming an essential purchase for music makers….

    Will someone please invent audio+midi streaming for the IPAD, wifi or USB (preferably the latter!)- play a note on my midi keyboard, triggers IPAD, sounds from IPAD go to DAW!

  4. Hi

    NLogSynth PRO today is kompatible with Line6 Midi Mobilizer hardware Interface.

    AU and VST plugin for Logic, Ableton, Cubase etc integration will follow later as an add-on.


    1. How is the AU & VST plugin going to work? Will that just be a plugin version of the iOS app, or will it record audio MIDI data to your computer?

  5. just awesome for the beginning of this wonderful new era of soft-synths!
    just a little bit more and it will be a wonderful hardware VA replacement.
