説明

KV331 Audio is proud to announce the availability of their award winning software synthesizer SynthMaster 2.9 on iOS platform. As being the first app developed using KV331 Audio’s new cross-platform UI framework, SynthMaster 2 runs as a standalone app or AUv3 plugin on iPads with iOS 11 and above.

SynthMaster 2 supports native resolutions of various iPad devices. User interfaces are provided for 9.7, 11 and 12.9 inch iPads in 4 different skins (Blue, White, Dark, Proto). Separate interfaces are provided for the AudioUnit plugin as well.

SynthMaster 2 comes with 950 factory presets designed by world class sound designers such as BigTone, Nori Ubukata, NatLife and Yuli Yolo. Thanks to the comprehensive preset browsing features, users can easily filter presets by author name, bank name, instrument type or preset name and find the sounds that they are looking for.

There’s also an IAP Shop, which lets users purchase additional sounds:

1. "Desktop Presets Upgrade": At the intro price of $4.99, this IAP adds all factory presets in SynthMaster 2.9, increasing the total preset count to 1950.
2. "All Expansions Bundle": At the intro price of $39.99, this IAP adds all current 32 SynthMaster preset expansion banks.

Sound Engine:

At the heart of SynthMaster 2’s powerful sound engine lies its oscillators, modulators, and filters.

Oscillators:

The oscillators can operate in 4 different modes to generate sound:

1. In Basic mode, the oscillator plays single cycle waveforms or samples. With the Oscillator Unison turned on, up to 8 voices per oscillator can be played.
2. In Additive mode, 8 Basic oscillators can be stacked up to create richer tones.
3. In Wavetable mode, the oscillator can play wavetables with up to 256 frames.
4. In Vector mode, 4 Basic oscillators are mixed in 2 dimensions.

Modulators:

Modulators are simply basic oscillators that can be added to other oscillators or modulate other oscillators’ or modulators’ phases. By connecting modulators to other oscillators or modulators, complex FM tones can be synthesized.

Importing Wave Files into SynthMaster:

While designing sounds, users can easily import wave files into SynthMaster 2. SynthMaster 2 can categorize those files into waveforms, wavetables or multi samples and import them accordingly.

Filters:

Once the sound is generated by the oscillators it goes through SynthMaster’s filters, which can operate in 6 different categories: Digital, VAnalog, Ladder, Diode Ladder, State Variable and Bite.

Custom distortion can be applied before or after the filters as well.

Modulation Architecture:

SynthMaster 2 features a comprehensive modulation architecture with a wide range of modulation sources:

1. MIDI controls
2. Macros controls
3. 4 ADSR envelopes per layer
4. 4 Multisegmented envelopes per payer
5. 4 LFOs per layer
6. 4 Sequencers per layer
7. 4 Keyscalers per layer

There’s real-time visual feedback that lets users see how modulation sources and targets are changing when a note is being played. This is extremely helpful when designing sounds with SynthMaster 2.

New modulations can be created easily by dragging and dropping a modulation source onto a knob or slider control.

Users can easily see which controls are modulated by a modulation source by clicking on that source. Controls that are being modulated by that source will display modulation amounts. By long pressing a control, the modulation amount can be edited without the need to go through the mod matrix.

Arp/Sequencer:

SynthMaster features a comprehensive arpeggiator / sequencer with 32 steps. Users can easily create sequences by recording steps one by one.


Effects:

Each of the 2 layers in SynthMaster has 5 insert effect slots. 13 different types of effects can be instantiated in any of those slots. There are also 2 global effect send busses which can be used to create more complex effect routings.

新機能

バージョン 1.0.4

New Features:
1. Users can now save presets of individual sections (Oscillator, Filter, FX, Envelope, Arp, etc)
2. Added pitch quantization for oscillator & modulator pitch parameters

Bug Fixes:
1. SynthMaster doesn't remember the last skin selected correctly
2. FM doesn't work for Osc2 when Sync is turned on
3. Notes terminate before the envelope(s) complete release stage
4. Arp edit menu is incorrectly linked to parent Layer
5. SynthMaster doesn't filter incoming MIDI messages by channel number
6. Filter keytracking doesn't correctly glide in mono legato mode
7. Older presets with glide LFOs don't load correctly
8. When Arp view is in record mode, it instantly changes the arp mode to "Sequence"
9. When Arp view is in record mode, the first step is not recorded correctly
10.When sample rate is changed, it is incorrectly set on iPad Pro M1 devices (Standalone)
11.If root folder is selected when importing waveforms or samples, the import fails
12.When a selected MIDI input device is disconnected and connected again, SynthMaster forgets that device (Standalone)
13.When editing a textbox control, the textbox might stay behind the builtin keyboard, making it invisible
14.Menus are sometimes clipped when displayed in AUv3 version

待ちに待った万能シンセ

比較的機能を絞った位置づけのOneでも充分素晴らしいが、より幅広いジャンルでの使用や音作りを求めるのならばやっぱりこちらの方に軍配が上がる。しかしその分音作りの難易度も上がるので初心者向けのシンセアプリではない。
音色や機能については申し分なく、もちろん使うジャンルにもよるがスペックとしてはiOSシンセアプリ最強レベルと言っても過言ではないかと思う。
一からじっくり音作りに没頭するもよし、またデスクトップ版を使ってる人は膨大なプリセットが使えたりもする事から100点満点。
だが決してわかりやすいUIとは言い難くアプリのポテンシャルを発揮するのは容易ではないことから即簡単に作れるような音を出したいなら他のアプリとの使い分けが効率的かと思われる。

まだ突然落ちたりと不安定な面もあるが、出たばかりなのでこれからのアップデートに期待。

しかしながらApp内課金の内容やデスクトップ版とのシンク、購入済みエクスパンションの管理や連携、長くて似通ったエクスパンション名などその辺のわかりづらさは相変わらずである事が残念ポイントなので星一つマイナス。
