Lorentz - AUv3 Plugin Synth 4+
Analog Modeling Synthesizer
Designed for iPad
Free update installable on Apple Silicon Mac
If you have already purchased this App on your iOS device, you can install it on your Apple Silicon Mac for free.
Lorentz is not only an analog modeling synthesizer, but also has a resonator that allows you to create metallic and distorted sounds. This makes it easy to create new synthesizer sounds with a resonator.
Unstable and fluctuating oscillators have unisonable sawtooth waves, pulse width modulated square waves, sub square waves and noise. You can mix these waveforms at the same time. The filter has a self-oscillating resonance.
- Note that depending on the parameter settings, loud sound may be produced.
- This product is not suitable for the purpose of accurately reproducing the sound of acoustic instruments or other synthesizers.
- This product can be installed on Macs with Apple silicon, but not on Macs with Intel CPUs. The window size of this product cannot be changed in Ableton Live.
- This product mainly contains basic presets that are useful as a starting point for sound creation. Please note that there are no huge amount of presets. Enjoy making sounds.
# Synthesizer Engine

# Universal App
This product is compatible with iPad, iPhone, and Apple Silicon Mac.
Please note that it is not compatible with Macs with Intel CPUs.
# Audio Unit Extensions (AUv3)
You can use this AUv3 Plug-In in a host application that supports Audio Unit Extensions (AUv3).
The standalone App is Audiobus compatible; in the case of the AUv3 plug-in, compatibility depends on the host App's specifications.
Live audio can be streamed directly to Audiobus compatible applications. See https://audiob.us/ for more information.
# Ableton Link
The standalone App supports Ableton Link; for AUv3 plug-ins, it depends on the host App's specifications whether it supports it or not.
Link is a technology that aligns the timing of multiple devices on a local network. See https://www.ableton.com/link/ for more information.
# MIDI Controller Mapping
MIDI controllers can be mapped to on-screen knobs.
# Preset sharing
You can share your presets with other users. You can add presets created by other users to your preset library using the iOS Share Extension feature.

- This app can now be installed on a Mac with Apple silicon and plugged into Garage Band, Logic Pro, Ableton Live, and other AUv3 compatible host apps. It cannot be installed on Macs with Intel CPUs.
- The method of displaying the control panel with basic parameters such as volume has been changed. It can be displayed from the knob icon button in the header. On the iPad standalone, it is still located to the left of the keyboard as before.
- Other small fixes and improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
Core subtractive synth
Regular classic synth sounds. Reason for high rating is this is very efficient, low cpu for most things, which is always an issue on iPad versus laptop.
Another good one
Like all of their synths! Great sounding! Get it now!
Lorentz is a BEAST
I own a LOT of iPad audio apps and well over 30 iOS synths. Of those, there are only a handful I would use for professional recording, such as Moog Model 15, Animoog, Korg ARP Odessei, Nave, and a few others. I would put Lorentz in that elite group. It can sound like a Jupiter 8 or a CS80 or even a 303. The routing is amazing… the filters are top-notch (a full LPF on just the Delay)… and that resonator just fills the sound with harmonics. Lorentz does dark and gritty very well too. It has all the MIDI options needed as well as Link. Did I mention it has dual envelopes? The other IceWorks synths are great too but this is my dog right here.
