Inspired in part by the Casio Sk-1's lo-fi sonics/sampling, the Moon Beam also adds features only possible in the touch screen world: bend keys independently!!! You can of course also bend all voices in sync using the touch pad.
The Moon Beam Synth/Sampler gives you:
-Unique key independent pitch bending
-2 sample/oscillator layers for each voice... or split them to top and bottom keyboards.
-Effects (Delay/Reverb,Filter,LFO,Vinyl Noise,Distortion)
-Easy sample editing
-4 octave keyboard + 2 pitch ribbons
-1 assignable effects touch pad
-Folders for samples/presets
-MIDI bug fixes
-Minor bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
It's great; shows promise!
.No "open in" or "file sharing"YET ! I was contacted by the developer immediately about "FUTURE INTENT " Other than that ,It's great .It works great other wise ! I learnt from developer also; that any equipment you use (like iRig or whatever it becomes standard input by default,so that's a BONUS! He also assured me that future development will have Audiobus "out" as an import of sounds ,as well as, other future intentions. So I can't complain at all ; It's awesome ;really sounds good maybe it's a call to go outside and do things old-school because; these devices have spoiled us a ton .
Developer Response ,
Hi, importing files/using AudioBus routing to input will be implemented in a future update. I was able to connect a mic up using the Apogee Duet and by default this was set as the input source. I would assume the same method using iRig etc would work as well.
Yes , I said instrument 😎 Been a synth guy for 50 years . If your old school or wave file guy . This app makes me feel at home .
It’s been giving me static sustained hiss . I debugged it and turned
down the reverb just a little. Every thing is great now have built files for the next project .
Good luck everyone on your synth app quest
Awesome developer. This app appears to be eight years old .
One of the rare apps that I can open and immediately be satisfied and completely happy.
Love this sampling keyboard/ synth hybrid of goodness. One of my favorites on iOS based solely on usability and fun factor. Please developer, please update this. Moonbeam is a special app. Begging you.
