Frippertronics style demo of SynthPad

September 7, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized 

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
  • Arpeggio

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.
