Brought to you from the unique world of MrFranz K - who's inimitable presentational style enlivens any subject, the Synth! iPad app from retronyms, offers a 5-voice synthesizer and sampler with over 40 preset synth voices.
Polyphonic touch screen synth keyboard large enough to be used as a real piano
Excellent Value for $0.99!
A decent selection of various synth sounds, and fun "sampler" mode included
You can hear the sounds as you are selecting them from the list
Mod Wheel effects each sound in a relevant way
Includes adjustable Delay and Distortion effects to augment sounds
with atmosphere and edge
Portable musical fun for kids or pros!
Drum sounds included, but no metronome or backing drum beats
Could use a wider choice of sounds ( but they could easily increase it
via update )
Delay effect does not show BPM, and no "tap tempo"
Distortion effect is very "digital" sounding ( harsh and crisp )
Basses could be more "bassy" in the low end
Mod wheel, but no "pitch bend"
Pros may wish for more detailed control over sounds
OVERALL RATING: Hard to go wrong with this sort of price tag.
Worth checking out their other apps such as: Doppler Pad, - a more fully functioning sound tool and StudioTrack - for multi-trackrecording.
