Finally! Some originality, this is amazing!

I am a recording artist on an indie label looking for something to help express a unique sound. I wasn't certain what to expect. A lot of music apps that look cool, seem strong, or also get great reviews are not at all what they are built up to be. Synthtronica IS!
The creative possibilities are limitless. Great presets, that you can use to create a whole new sound from and call your own by the tap of a button. It even offers to randomly name your new sound with some pretty clever names. Handy when a name doesn't come to mind.
Loads of adjustable parameters, filters, reverb etc and all laid out intuitively. There is also excellent in app on screen help if you get lost or confused.
But that's not going to happen often.
I was looking for a way to make new, creative sounds for my music, and here it is. I will be making some cool new pads, and melodies, and spacey lines or whatever very easily with this.

5/5 stars

Amazing synthesizer app.

Super fun and easy to use.
Sounds GREAT!
Sampling is easy and fun.
I only purchase music apps, and this is one of the best avaible.
The multi-touch filter sounds good.
Highly recommended.
Totally worth the $5.
Just buy it.

3/5 stars

Good at what it does but limited.

First of all this synth is fantastic for creating pad-type sounds. The sounds that it creates in that genre are very good. The problem is most of the sounds are pretty close to each other. There are subtle differences so if you like one then you'll probably like them all. I was hoping for more variety.

The vocoder works by making almost any sample into a musical sound, but again suffers from the lack of variability.

If you're looking for nice, breathy sounds with a slow attack then this may be for you. If you are looking for a lot of variability or patches with sharp attacks, then this may not work for you.

I think it's a fantastic start and hope for great things once this app matures over time and updates.
