Frippertronics style demo of SynthPad
This is a Frippertronics style demo of SynthPad – a new iPhone instrument inspired by the interface of the Korg Kaossilator family of devices.
Instead relying on piano keys to register notes, SynthPad uses a dedicated touch surface to control the sounds. Additionally the Y-Axis on the touch surface can be used to control different parameters, like filter cutoff and LFO values, making it an “expressive little toy.”
Its sound engine is a fully programmable monophonic virtual analog synthesizer. Among its parameters one can find:
- 2 oscillators with different wave shapes
- Fine tuning of the second oscillator
- Volume Envelope
- LFO modulation
- A Low-Pass filter
- Filter Envelope
Additionally, the scale and the key on the touchpad surface can also be configured, for live improvisation.
SynthPad is available now in the App Store for $1.99.
