Beep Street has released Horizon - a new virtual analog synthesizer for the iPad that, according to the developer, "takes the definition of iOS synthesizer to the next level."

Features:

  • True SuperSaw sound emulation, first found in the legendary Roland JP-8000 synthesizer. SuperSaw is a layered waveform consisting of multiple saw waves which are detuned to create an extremely full and epic sound. It's possible to use 2 supersaw oscillators per voice * 7 polyphony = 98 saw oscillators playing the same time!
  • Two independent filters per voice with configurable routing. You can select between various filter types including classic resonant LP,HP,BP,Notch and less common like Comb and Formant.
  • The Morph Group function lets you continuously morph of up to 30 parameters in a sound (including effects), using only the modulation wheel.

OSCILLATORS

  • 2 warm-sounding analog modelled oscillators per voice + 2 sub-oscillators (except SuperSaw). Available waveforms: Saw, PWM pulse,Triangle, SuperSaw. 
  • Oscillator 2 hard-sync and configurable routing
  • Osc-mix, ring modulator
  • White noise oscillator

FLEXIBLE MULTI FILTERS

  • Two independent filters per voice with configurable routing. You can select between various filter types including: resonant LP,HP,BP,Notch, Comb and Formant. 
  • Configurable routing: serial or parallel with bypass option.
  • ADSR envelope, keyboard tracking and full LFO control

MODULATION

  • Two LFOs per voice. It's possible to assign each LFO to almost any parameter. 3 LFO running modes: trigger, 1 shot, global. 6 waveforms, phase and fade-in knobs
  • The Morph Group function lets you continuously morph of up to 30 parameters in a sound (including effects), using only the modulation wheel.
  • Two Modulation ADSR Envelopes for amplitude and filters cutoff
  • Pitch and modulation wheels

EFFECTS

  • A number of effects are built in: distortion, chorus, equalizer, stereo delay. All parameters can be modulated using mod-wheel.

ARPEGGIATOR

  • Horizon incorporates very powerful programmable arpeggiator. You should think of it more like a small step sequencer.

OTHER FEATURES

  • Over 200 presets
  • 7 voices polyphony
  • Playback modes: poly, solo, arp
  • Built-in recorder supporting AudioCopy and iTunes file sharing.
  • Supports CoreMidi and MidiMobilizer. MIDI key velocity can affect up to 3 parameters.
  • Configurable piano keyboard size
  • Hold button allows you to to keep notes sustaining until you play new notes. 
  • With Chord Memory function you can play the chord by only pressing single keys. 
  • Tube soft saturation on output

Pricing and Availability

Horizon is available in the App Store for US $4.99.
