Background description of the app:
i.pocketsynth is more than a synthesizer, it is a little keyboard… The main interest of the mini keyboard is not its sound quality which is a little bit cheap or not really interesting… There are two features which make it a unique App on the whole the App Store. Firstly you’ll be able to play over a Song which is playing on a Radio Station! I don’t really know the real interest of this feature, but I’ve never see it on another App… The second one is that you can Sync 2 i.pocketsynth App over Bluetooth. This feature allows you to play notes on one of your devices and they will be played on the second device too. Unfortunately you can’t set a different sound on each device. With i.pocketsynth you can also choose a Backing Track from 30 available styles and you can record (by using the built in microphone on your iDevice) and what’s more, share your performances via email. You can also send your creation to the ipocketsynth team for a review. How shall I rate this App?… For its unique features, even if I don’t really know what to do with them… i.pocketsynth is a Super App despite its poor sound quality and interest…

Polyphonic Full-Modular Synthesizer with Patch-cable system, “Kamioooka”
VST Instrument 32/64bits for Windows freeware.
Participated in KVR Developer Challenge 2012.
Kamioooka is a full-modular synth with patch cable system developed by g200kg (known mainly from nice pitch correction “auto-tune” plugin called Kerovee). Kamiooka scored third place in KVR Developer Challenge 2012, which is the fourth free-for-all audio plug-in / audio application / soundware design event, where people vote and there are prizes, hand shakes etc
First of all, it’s very low CPU consumption plugin. It offers real (well it’s modular ) flexibility. If you need to, you can choose ie. five voltage controlled oscillators, or few LFOs and connect everything with nice cables I would say that Kamiooka is a very interesting plugin especially for those who like program (modular) synths. If you’re a preset player then there aren’t many presets available. The factory bank contains only 38 patches (first 5-6 are more like a tutorial), but luckily you can extend it – there’s an additional 30 patch bank available on official website.
Robert Tubb has introduced The Wablet, a “physics based synthesiser and noise toy”.
An animated mesh of springs can be vibrated with the fingers. A path around this mesh is read as into an audio waveform, and hence your gestures are turned into sound. Complex evolving drones, chiptunes bleeps or full on noise can be produced, and beautiful undulating patterns created. The physical properties of the mesh can be changed using the sliders, new sound-paths can be drawn onto the Mesh and the App comes with a Max/MSP patch for wireless MIDI control and more in depth adjustable parameters. The Wablet scans the current state of the interactive mass-spring network and uses that waveshape as an oscillator cycle for synthesizing sound.
The Wablet – being triggered via MIDI over a wireless network. No two loops are quite the same.
u-he has released a video of an alpha version of the upcoming arpeggiator for its Diva virtual analog synthesizer.
The oscillators, filters and envelopes closely model components found in some of the great monophonic and polyphonic synthesizers of yesteryear. Modules can be mixed and matched so you can build hybrids, but what sets DIVA apart is the sheer authenticity of the analogue sound. This comes at the cost of quite a high CPU-hit, but we think it was worth it: Diva is the first native software synth that applies methods from industrial circuit simulators (e.g. PSpice) in realtime. The behaviour of zero-delay-feedback filters when pushed to the limit clearly demonstrates the advantages of this groundbreaking approach.
Tone2 Rayblaster Feature Overview
Rayblaster employs a new synthesis technique called Impulse Modelling Synthesis (IMS)
Opposed to using looped waveforms, Impulse Modelling Synthesis creates its sound by using short bursts of energy, which are then combined to form its sound. Allowing free manipulation of pitch, time and timbre in real-time, to create complex compositions.
IMS no longer requires a separate filter section, its oscillators can authentically mimic the filter sound of other synthesizers and filters, using one of the factory impulse presets or by simply importing one of your own impulses. RayBlaster is capable of modelling both the sound of existing filters, as well as create completely new artificial filters, exclusive to Rayblaster.
Next to importing filter characteristics into its oscillators, Rayblaster also offers resynthesize options to import the waveform of any other source or synthesizer. By using one of the quick importers, or by directly importing your sample into one of Rayblaster’s four oscillators, providing a large amount of possible wave-shapes, all capable of being morphed in real-time.
RayBlaster ships with an inspiring library of over 500 outstanding presets from some of the world’s top sound designers. Many complex sounds such as arpeggiators, vocals or drumloops automatically synchronize to the BPM.
For fast & easy access to the specific sound you desire, all sounds are arranged into categories, making them easy to locate whether for live performance or within a professional studio environment.
