KV331 Audio releases a preset version of their synth 26/05/15
KV331 tells us that SynthMaster Player for iPad is now available on the AppStore.
SynthMaster Player for iPad is the mobile player version of SynthMaster. KV331 says that it is targeted towards users who prefer to use presets rather than designing their own sounds during music production. Although it is a preset based player, users can edit the following parameters:
8 easy parameters assigned by the sound designer
2 XY Pads assigned by the sound designer
Effect bypass states and send amounts
Layer bypass states and volumes
Master volume, polyphony
The free app comes with 100 factory presets. When users complete registration by entering their names and email addresses they receive another 100 factory presets as a bonus. After completing registration, users can upgrade to the Pro version of the app by purchasing the "Factory Presets" bank via In-App-Purchase (IAP) for $9.99. With the Pro Upgrade all of the 800 factory presets are loaded and also the following features are unlocked:
Users can save the changes they have made to the presets
Users can purchase additional preset banks via In-App-Purchase (IAP)
Existing SynthMaster users can download their previously purchased SynthMaster preset banks inside the app, so that they don't have to purchase them again
Existing SynthMaster users can export their own presets in SynthMaster v2.7 and import them into SynthMaster Player for iPad using iTunes.
