Excellent editor for a great synth

The Skulpt is one of my favorite synths. It’s very approachable for sound design, and with 32 detuneable oscillators it can produce some massive sounds. And as a bonus it’s tiny and cheap!
The app is, likewise, one of the best of its kind. Most editors are a barfed-up screenful of knobs, but this one shows the waveforms and envelopes visually. It could stand improvement — setting up mods is a PITA, and I’d love a grid-based sequencer — but I’m happy with it. I’d give the app alone four stars, but if you’re reading this you’re probably considering the synth(s) too, and the whole package deserves five.

One of the best synth editors out there. Kudos to the Modal team for showing the industry how it should be done.

Poor power management.

App works as intended but if you don’t force close it when you are done with it continues to consume a ridiculous amount of battery power, even if it isn’t connected to a synth.
