Incredible sounds to be had!

I’m making some amazing sounds not quite like any other synth I have. But wait, you can’t save presets! (And it only has 3 factory presets). Could use note hold (key latching) feature. Compatibility with IAA and AU3 would make it useful other than just a toy.

Great little synth

Really cool little synth. It has a pretty raw sound which is great. One thing I’d love to see is some sort of description around the knobs so you know what turning them does. Some are clearly percentages, but some appear to be changing the waveform and having that either in the app or somewhere as a reference would be cool. Either way, it’s a great free synth and it’s fun to play with the knobs and see what sounds it can make. Thank you for such a great app!

Great start but......

Pros -

Sounds great!
AU support
Light on CPU
You can save presets in stand alone mode

Cons -

This is really the only con for me but unfortunately it’s a pretty big one. I made several really nice patches and saved them.....in stand alone mode. Using the synth in AUM as an audio unit means I cannot recall any of my presets (or the three from the dev).

Only 3 factory presets (not really an issue for me but if you don’t like making them or don’t know how then this will be an issue for you.

I really hope the dev fixes the preset recall issue because I like this little synth very much! Keeping my fingers crossed for a fix at which time I will gladly update this review.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the reaction. Will try to make presets from standalone mode available inside DAWs in the next release.
