AnalogKit lets you play, share, and build synths and effects in an incredible digital playground.
A music hacker's paradise, Analogkit is designed to be enjoyed by both seasoned synth aficionados and curious cable-wranglers. Whether you're into built-from-scratch effects pedals, synths, vocoders or even DIY games, AnalogKit allows you to build nearly anything you can dream of.
• Piece together controls, effects and signal generators into any gear you can imagine.
• 50+ included core components that can be combined to create endless possibilities of sounds.
• Share your creations with the community via the built-in Swap Meet, or browse, live-preview, and download gear built by other users.
• Compatible with USB audio interfaces so you can run AnalogKit as an effects board for a mic, guitar, or other analog instrument.
• Audiobus support for input, effect, and output slots
• Inter-app audio support
• Full USB, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and virtual MIDI support to let you use your favorite external controllers and receive MIDI from other music apps
• Advanced optimization algorithms enable you to run tens of thousands of basic modules in real-time on a modern iPad.
• State of the art anti-aliased oscillators provide the most authentic sound sources digital synthesis can offer.
• All the favorite toys from modular analog synths as well as digital logic components so you can build all the hybrid franken-synths your hardware modular friends could only dream of.
Under the hood, AnalogKit is anything but a toy. The process of putting things together with Analogkit is nothing less than an exploration of digital audio creation that's both revealing and powerful.
Like a supercharged electronics project kit, Analogkit lets you combine and wire things up in any way you want, rather than having to settle for adjusting settings on existing gear. Depending on what components you choose, it can be both a trippy generative app that's easy to lose hours with, or nimble and precise tool for building custom setups quickly.
Analogkit takes full advantage of its digital nature and lets you literally hook anything into anything, chain together as many of a thing as you like, and finally experiment like a kid again ...a kid that happens to have the best audio toy to come to the iPad yet.

Glamorous China Cabinet
Analogkit. This is a pretty big deal. Modular synthesists, electronics tinkerers, educators, students of electronic sound, instrument designers, circuit benders, programming-curious music folk, and noise musicians have a great environment here for exploring musical gadgetry, and being able to make music once the tinkering is done.
A lot of the fun of modular synths is playing with the knobs, once a patch is together. This one of the main reasons AnalogKit is working out here: the container system for combining modules together, and choosing what is visible, makes it so you can hide all of the spaghetti of cables and utility, behind a front panel, once you're ready to play. It also makes reusing modules you make easy, so you don't have to spend time headscratching and remaking something you may have done in another project. I read the developers were using their beta version of the app to perform with, which shows in the UI, and the playability of the app..
As well as the container system, the Swap Meet, the online community for sharing modules and projects directly within the app, plays a large part in the current and future potential for the app. Already there are lots of outlandish, fun creations to try out ("the Mumbler", "Plucked Ostrich"), as well as utilities that I couldn't build, like a triggering oscilloscope, and phaser pedal, etc... Casual users, without modular synthesis knowledge, can download projects and play music with them, and if they're curious, also look inside to see how they're made, or even with no curiosity, be able to reuse modules and parts for their projects, without needing to understand how they were built, on a lower level.
There are some bugs, but the developers are responsive and enthusiastic about fixing them and fine tuning. Their plethora of shared projects are really cool, too, like the lofi video games and gibberish talking generator.
Highly recommended! Apps like this are pushing the boundaries of the tablet as an outrageous music making thingy.
Lack of support
It’s sad to see this app neglected. Requests: an appropriate font for expressions, aspect ratio support for newer devices, a better tutorial for those new to the app.
Please fix layout issue and update
Do this app the justice it deserves. You have a great 5 star app that just needs some polishing. It’s a work of art.
