Unexpected Surprise... 😎

I have purchased and downloaded a number of your apps before, and have found them ranging from interesting to mindblowing – in varying degrees. Synth One is a masterpiece IMO. I can see if people were expecting this to be more “standard piano sounds“ they might be a bit disappointed. For me, however, it was just the opposite! And although I would love to have a few minor additions – such as ‘attack-time’, and stretch/micro tunings (pretty pleeez! 🙏🏼), within a few moments of playing with the controls, I made these wonderfully gritty/rich “hint of a piano” textures drenched in crunch, and reverb – that sound delicious in the bass registers. 😎 If there were a way to patch the sequencer and arpeggiator or features from SynthOne into here... that would be the icing on the cake.

As for those complaining “that it’s not up to par” – perhaps they were expecting a more standard electric and acoustic piano set?? This is F R E E. If you want all those standard piano sounds etc. why not just open GarageBand (which, sounds great, btw), or find one of the 30 or so electric and acoustic-piano “simulation” apps out there?

Simply cut your losses (none!), delete the app, and move on to the next one. Life is too short to waste time on crappy reviews for apps one didn’t even pay for.

Less is Everything

When these guys make an app they do it very well .
I remember downloading the first AudioKit app before they updated it and I already liked it mainly because the beautiful reverb effect they have is unlike any I’ve heard anywhere else.
That was the key to making even the blandest sound , full and vibrant, they only got better and more creative from there....so I know that this retro piano sounds awesome now ,....just wait till they work on it and spruce it up , I play around with all the big name items in the synth realm and AudioKit came in short time and surpassed all of them. Thanks for creating great toys for us grown azzz adults.

What’s happened?

So far, you have cranked out some amazing simulations; and now this? If it’s a joke, it’s decidedly not funny. How about a real Rhodes sim, complete with that grimy sound one only gets from using an old electric piano that’s been sitting in the studio since the 1960s? That would make my summer, truly…

I’m really confused. Is this how you respond to negative comments? I’ll be brief. I wrote the original review because this release didn’t live up to your previous releases. I have been nothing short of astounded by synth one, d-1, and fm player are all literally breathtaking. Retro player is not, IMO. My response was relatively free of snarky comments; your response was not. Retro player needs work. It’s beyond belief that you would offer a racist comment in a review. Yes, comments that refer to a perceived mental deficiency is racist; we live in the 21st century. I’ll continue you try out, and in all probability use your creations; but you’ve lost all my respect. You’ll notice I’ve rereviewed player one. That as good as its going to get, barring an overhaul.

Developer Response ,

We've been working on a Rhodes-inspired app the past 6 months with 2 Grammy-winning producers. It'll be out very soon! :)
