GyroSynth is a gesture driven music synthesizer, which takes full adventage of the gyroscope. You can play and modulate the sound by moving your hand through the air - just like the legendary Theremin instrument.

GyroSynth makes use of the gyroscope to measure true roll, pitch, and yaw and translates them to sound parameters like pitch, volume, modulation or filter cutoff. Thanks to phenomenal accuracy (2000 degrees), you can play melodies perfectly in tune.

GyroSynth is a finalist in 'Most Innovative App' category at the 2010 Best App Ever Awards (148apps).


- Synthesizers: vocal (formant synthesizer), sine wave , square (PWM modulation), saw, granular sample player with recording function and R2D2 - experimental FM modulation
- Effects: delay and boost
- Several control modes
- Included musical scales allow you to effortlessly play in several styles
- Built-in recorder and player with overdub function

Great App! Needs one thing….

I love this app. It’s the only gestural synth that can play back samples that I am aware of on the iPhone. I really love it. However, it only allows file sharing with iTunes. You can’t connect to Google Drive or even Dropbox to load samples into it. I know it is asking a lot of a free app, but this is so well done. If they would just add Google Drive downloads or at least enable sharing with the AudioShare app. If the developers read this, please, please add Google Drive as a way to import audio files. I am an experimental musician and like to edit my samples on the desktop, not my phone. This would raise this app up a notch. Heck, I’d pay for that option.

Wonderful new instrument.

This thing is just awesome. Update please! It needs more features. There needs to be option of all octaves available at once- middle C reset location and choice over sensitivity and pitch change direction. A realtime display of note and sharp/flat. Vibrate at pitch change option- Screen touch buttons/surfaces options for manipulation live. Add reverb and control over reverb/delay parameters. More midi control options. Please consider these ideas and update this app.
