iSyn Poly from VirSyn

Seems to have just been released to the app store. Lots of knobs, but I downloaded it too late last night to hook up to real speakers and hear the quality of the sound. Stay tuned, or try it yourself. Just $10.

Had some time to play with this app today. Didn't find anything extraordinary in the presets, but set up a couple of saw oscillators and compared it to the gold standard (V-Synth). You probably couldn't tell which was which in a blind test. The synthesizer has a nice clean interface with a lot of knobs. Some might find it too plain with all the knobs identical.

I usually don't like to play a simulated keyboard on the iPad if I don't have too, but this one has a couple of tricks. Drag horizontally after hitting the key to add pitch bend. Drag vertically for modulation. It also has a x-y track pad to which parameters can be assigned. Both might be useful for performing. It also allows you to program parameters to two axes of tilt. Can't quite see someone up on stage waving their iPad around but...

It has a built in four track sequencer which might be its killer feature. Someone else will have to comment on that. All in all, a nice straight forward synth in a great mobile package.
