Ratings and Reviews
Great sister synth to Laplace
I return to this synthesizer app, regularly, because it does what music apps are supposed to do, a unique sound with a simple interface. Laplace is my favorite of the ice works apps, but this is a great companion/expansion to Laplace, especially for the billed use, tuned percussion. I do like Laplace better for strings and plucks and keys. This one is really fun to play with a drum pad midi controller (tuned to a scale, if you like) for marimba, and bell like sounds.
One of my favorite iOS synths. Being able to import third party sounds, along with the included great sounds, really sets this apart from other iOS offerings. The best part of this synth, however, is how responsiveness of the developer! Bugs are squashed very quickly with timely updates. Must buy!
Thanks for AU support!
This is one of my most favorite iPad synths. When I saw Laplace get AU3 support, I was hopeful Mersenne would as well. Now that time's here and I just MIDI sequenced a quick track with it in GarageBand. The AU layout is good and scrolls smoothly to see everything. All of the effects parameters are exposed, too. I personally prefer AU to IAA or AudioBus. And I love Mersenne, so today's a great day. Thanks, IceGear!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
