Modular is an advanced synthesizer environment with richly detail graphics and incredible sound for your iPhone 4S or newer, iPod Touch 5th generation or newer, and iPad 3rd generation or newer.

Modular offers you the ability to build your own synthesizer, the way you want to. At the same time, modular is a great tool for learning how analog subtractive synthesis works.

By separating each synthesis process, modules can be connected in any way. You are no longer limited to synthesizers designed by others, you are now in full control of your sound. This is the beauty and power of modular synthesis.
Modular looks, acts, and sounds like a hardware modular synthesizer to give you the familiarity and features that musicians want such as pulse width modulation, oscillator sync, 4 pole ladder filters, and 1v/oct filter tracking.
Traditional modular systems cost $$$$ where modular is free. In-app purchases give you access to advanced modules. Owning a module means you own as many as you can fit in the modular rack. Do you want to build a monster 6 oscillator synth? You can.

Features:

  • Analog sound
  • Bandlimited oscillators
  • Oversampled filters
  • Beautiful graphics
  • Dynamic workspace
  • Intuitive navigation
  • Controls that give detailed values such as filter frequency in Hz and oscillator tuning in semitones
  • Minimal menu interface
  • Keyboard with 10 octave range
  • Arpeggiator
  • In app help and tutorials
  • Audiobus support
  • Soundcloud export
  • CoreMIDI support
  • Record live performance
  • Email recordings
  • Import / export patches via iTunes file sharing
  • Background Audio

And it’s free! There’s an IAP that is very competitively priced. Download it and take a look.

Video review of the drum synth Kraftpad

September 9, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This is definitely one of my favorite iPad apps right now, check out the video below to find out why, but I guess a hint would the choice of presets :-)

Kraftpad is a Drum Pad. I really love it because you can edit the 6 available Pads. Shape the sound of each instrument, or change it.21 kits are available. All, as the name of this App implies, dedicated to Electronic Music. You also have a reverb, and you’ll be able to record and loop your Performances. No sharing features are available, and no Midi either. A Super + Drum Pad. I think that it could easily become a Killer One with AudioCopy / Paste and the Midi…”

Product overview:

Modular is a free Modular Synthesizer for iPad and iPhone, which offers a lot of modules as part of the free package. Modular, the ultimate synthesizer that will revolutionize your sound.

Modular looks, acts, and sounds like a hardware modular synthesizer to give you features that musicians want such as pulse width modulation, oscillator sync, 4 pole ladder filters, and 1v/oct filter tracking. Traditional modular systems are expensive and out of reach for the average artist. Modular is here to bridge that gap and allow everyone the opportunity to use these powerful synthesizers.

What makes modular special is the audio and visual experience you have with it. Beautifully minimal menu systems and interface along with ultra realistic synthesizer graphics are just the beginning. The real beauty is not what you see, but what you hear. Pristine and punchy oscillators that sound great, even at the extreme ends of the frequency spectrum. It starts with band limited oscillators. Not just traditional methods of band limiting, but band limiting that enables each note you play to have the maximum number of harmonics without distorting.

Every detail of the audio has been analyzed to provide you the most amazing sound possible such as buttery smooth filter sweeps and resonance so stable you can use the filter as an oscillator!

Modular goes a step further with connectivity and supports Audiobus, Soundcloud, CoreMIDI, as well as Sonoma Audio Copy so that your music making workflow is streamlined and integrated.

The sounds of Uber Synth for iPad

August 27, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The new synthesizer from Intelligent Gadget. Uber Synth: a polyphonic multi-timbral FM synthesizer. Its particularity is that you will be able to map any number of preset or custom sound patches to different positions on the keyboard. Note that the underlying sound engine is the same polyphonic triple-oscillator cross-modulated FM synthesizer used in the xMod. Uber Synth is Core MIDI compatible and supports MIDIRTP for wireless control. My conclusion: I really love when a developer finds a new (good) idea… And here we have one… To be able to map any preset so easily and fast on your keyboard. Great! A Killer Synthesizer!
