Laplace is a physical-modeling synthesizer based on resonator synthesis that makes it easy to create bowed string, plucked string, blown pipe and metallic sounds. But it is designed not to reproduce real acoustic instruments but to create new synthesizer sounds in different new ways.

Ratings and Reviews
This has instantly moved into the top synths folder on my iPad.
It may look simplistic, but it's perfectly designed for the job in hand.
Reminiscent of a huge Yamaha mono synth from the early 90's that specialised in organic modelling of bowing, plucking, strumming and wind sounds. It was massive and 2k+!
The sound quality is immense, given the heavy implementation of multi resonance features, it manages to remain pretty much glitch free, handling the high and low registers with ease.
It's nice to see more unusual ideas appearing in the ocean of iOs instruments I welcome Laplace and I think we're going to get on just fine! I'm already half way through a Laplace only tune, it's got legs!
I was never a great fan of Cssini, but this is a bold, juicy, exciting synth, looking forward to seeing what the dev does Next!
Lovely organic sounds now in the palm of your hand
Ever since my son ran off with my iPad I've been longing for Laplace to go universal so I could use it on my phone set up. And here it is! The best synths have a character all their own, and this one certainly ticks that box. Highly, highly recommended.
Excellent introduction to physical modelling
This is a great sounding little synth capable of producing many interesting and useful sounds, way different and more organic that you get out of the typical subtractive synth. Beautifully executed GUI, with nearly everything on one screen.
