*** The most popular synthesizer of all time for iPhone and iPod Touch! ***
Nominated for the best musical instrument app in the 2008 Best App Ever Awards, miniSynth is back with a vengeance in version 1.2. Continuing the tradition of the intuitiveness, simplicity and functionality of our music software, miniSynth packs a punch seldom expected of a synth its size. With twenty additional presets, and a new true-mono keyboard algorithm, miniSynth is now even better at evoking the venerable sounds of vintage synthesizers from modern music’s golden era.
Brought to you by the same team behind Thereminator and Tune-O-Rama, miniSynth has sounds and features that rival those of its flesh-and-blood (well….transistor-and-wood) forbears. Just experiment with its two 6-octave oscillators and ultra retro filter to see what we mean: you’ll be able to evoke sounds from Classic Rock to Electronica, and from Prog to New Wave just by moving a few sliders, or create unique voices of your own. From luscious booming bass sounds to shrill screeches, miniSynth won’t disappoint.
