Your favorite iOS synths.

Post by PISS.EXE » Sat Aug 12, 2017 3:48 am

I have very few but one of the few I like a lot and often run into a sampler is Howl. I'm looking for other suggestions of fun iOS synths that sound unique and good on their own. No need for clones of existing instruments here. Anyone got any good ones? I might even get myself a midi to lightning thingy if there's one or two that are really good.

Sunrizer (as an overall winner of a VA - very Virus-influenced)
Fieldscaper (as a field-recorder/drone thing - also check out his others)
SunVox (amazing all-in-one music dev package)
Anger is a sublimated desire for power.

Sunrizer , simple easy, covers loads of genres.

Animoog , for sound quality and its very intuitive but also deep.

Nave , for original sounds and performance options. Sounds superb too.

IELECTRIBE sounds good loads of fun.

Korg gadget with module is all you need, all the synths sound great.

ISEM , sounds amazing!

Bebot may be simple, but it is one great sounding synth.

I have loads of iOS synth, but here are the ones that stay on my pad...

Don't you mean JP8000/8080 influenced ?

I'm really enjoying ivcs3 right now. I also got Ripplemaker recently. It's pretty good if you want something more west coast.

For me the best thing about iOS synths is being able to spend a lot of time programming sounds when I'm on break at work - end up having huge banks of sounds that I really like piped right into the DAW with Studiomux.

My favorite is Nave. If you're into wavetables at all check it out - it's a sort of Blofeld-on-iPad.

A close second is probably the Virsyn stuff which can get you to some interesting and weird digital sounds that you don't get from a traditional subtractive synth. Poseidon and Addictive Pro are probably my favorites of theirs.

I'll check out Nave, blofeld on iOS sounds pretty sick.

I had no idea SunVox was on iOS. I ran it on a Palm many years ago...

Nave. I wish all wavetablers had that interface.
Animoog is fun, but I swear the guys that made the presets have access to params I dont.
Filtatron is still fun too. I use Roland's air recorder to grab stuff and I have some utility to import into Filtatron.

I personally hate that ipad only is even a thing.
There is no technical reason, aside from screen real estate, for an app to be ipad only. And Apple provides hooks for developers to give an app a different appearance on ipad and iphone.
Heck it's hard enough to make an app look decent on the range of iphone sizes. Making it work on ipad and iphone is a cinch. This is just laziness on the developer or company's part.

Oh man, I didn't realize. Honestly, I wouldn't fuck with most of the things in this thread on my iphone. Sounds like a recipe for intense frustration. I have large sausage fingers though and not pointy, elven, pencil fingers.

There's stuff on Android like Caustic and Sunvox - which of course I'm only aware of because they're also on IOS. :hihi:

Also a few Surface users out there, but I hear Bitwig is the only Windows app that has true multitouch support.

They're probably using custom Timbres.

I think a Timbre is Animoog-speak for wavetable. There are probably more than 5000 3rd party ones you can get for Animoog:

oh yeah forgot about gadget. TBH I'm not really into the whole in app purchase thing. But the 3 little synths are alright.

PPG Infinite looks promising.
http://www.wolfgangpalm.com/iinfinite.html

Since the trend lately is towards AU, I'll limit my synth app purchases to AU compatible ones, going forward. Infinite is one of them.

Just downloaded PPG Infinite and it's been fun so far without referring to any manuals, though I might need to soon for the acronyms on each axis of the big modulation matrix...

Hmm. You might be right. Never seen a JP8000 close up. The look is definitely from there. The dual filter modes made me think of Virus front panels I've seen.

+1 for Bebot.

DRC has a wide range of sounds and I really like the interface.

Audulus if you wanna go modular on iOS!

Animoog so far. It's amazing imo. And lots of fun.

Ripplemaker is fun too. Moog Model 15 sounds great, but the patching can be little fiddly.
