What does a synthesizer sound like through an overdrive pedal? To answer this great mystery, I visited NightSound Studio to re-amp a plethora of synth tones through various classic guitar pedals. The results are now available for your ears in Overdrive Synth!

Use your keyboard to play notes, and the arrow keys to change instruments or shift octaves. Also try using the app as an AUv3 plug-in in your DAW. That is where this thing really shines!

• Vintage Synths Re-amped Through Guitar Pedals
• 3 Keyboard Layouts (Piano, Guitar & Scaled)
• AUv3 & MIDI Support
• Professionally Recorded Samples
• 10 Instruments (+100 more with IAP)
• Proudly Built With AudioKit

The app comes with 10 default instruments, and If you like the starting sounds, unlock the full version (+100 instruments) and become a turbo-powered crunch synth master! I'm also EXTREMELY excited to bring you the full video development story on how this app was made! If you're curious to see what all went into making this app including the recording process, follow the behind-the-scenes link in the app! Special thanks to Nightsound Studios where the samples were recorded, AudioKit for providing the tools to build this app, the amazing open source synth community, and you for supporting indie developers.

Thank You & Enjoy!

***** it goes without saying that overdrive and vhs are truly a gift to those of us who, tho enjoy a great synth, are really riff creators and musicians at heart. the youthful playfulness and deadly seriousness you’ve put into these apps- is not lost on us. I’m 48 and began playing guitar at about age 8. id always had a backup plan one day, to be able to keep writing- if at some point my fingers no longer worked well.. your inclusion of a customizable fretboard is a dream I’ve had since long before the internet. today I picked a patch I liked, cued up the fretboard and shed a literal tear of joy. It was the first time I could play a synth, immediately, with excellent sounds from my youth, and knew…exactly where all the notes were. the chords I’d spent years learning. my personal vocabulary.
my secret language. Thank You. *what you’ve done is bigger, than make a great app.

Beautifully Nostalgic!

I just downloaded this app and was pleasantly surprised by all of the great sounds. They definitely reminiscent of sounds I had on past keyboards.
The sounds seem perfect for Lo-fi or Retro style music.
I can definitely see how they might be good for a Synth-wave project.
The colors used for the keyboard and controls also reflect this and set the mood really well!
It is easy to use also. Well done!


Best app of its kind (that I know of) on the App Store!

Some nice sounds and a synthwave color styling.
Synthwave fans should certainly try it out!
