From the minds of Fingerlab (multiple-time winner of Music App of the Week, 2012 Apple Design Award) and Jordan Rudess (keyboardist of Dream Theater, 2019 Denny Award winner for the ios app ‘Geoshred’), comes PolyWave, a revolutionary synthesizer technology that employs a novel wavetable sequencer to create unique and ever-evolving sonic experiences. PolyWave is inspired by the vintage sounds of the legendary Korg Wavestation synth.

PolyWave allows you to use the mouse to draw distinct and unrepeatable waveforms. Simply move your mouse along your screen, and watch and listen as your unique musical exploration unfolds. With our expansive waveform library at your disposal, the possibilities are endless!

If you’re looking for some inspiration before embarking on your own PolyWave journey, check out our 100+ factory preset categories. We offer a variety of options including leads, loops, pads & FX.

PolyWave can be connected to your favorite keyboard with MIDI, and our built-in live recording module allows you to record your creations right on the app.

*The free version of PolyWave is limited to 12 factory presets, and a small selection of our feature options (see * in features list).

Get it

Pro app. Pro tip. Get it. Should be supported for a long time given the developer's history. It's great for morphing pads if you're into that sort of thing like me. Works well and has simple controls. Effects sound good. Easy midi map. Beauty. I mean for the price you just can't beat it. p.s. The sounds you can get from drawing a waveform is somewhat dependent on understanding how that works and it works fine, as good as any other. You can "detach" the envelope from the filter by drawing the envelope properly, i.e. sustain all the way up, no attack, no release. An init patch by hitting new does this automatically. The detune knob work fine as well. It is for detune of the different waves, not like the detune between voices on an analog synth.

Not that different from Mynth and Flynth

Hmmmm…. I feel like PolyWave, Mynth and Flynth should be a one app. I don’t understand why three separate apps are needed. Very similar in their basic concept, interface and most importantly in what kind of sounds can be generated with them. They feel like different variations of the same app.

Having said that, it’s great. I just wish to be able to use them all within one app.

This is a very neat synthesizer app; some very cool ideas here. The whole wave sequencing thing seems to work quite well, very well thought out, and the FM option is OK. But it seems like it’s not quite “finished”... there’s a knob called “detune” which doesn’t seem to do anything. I can’t use the filter without it being connected to its envelope... and the wave randomizer appears to come up with very similar results every time. And as far as drawing the waveform, that works well, but it seems to produce a fairly limited palate. I would like the option to be able to create waveforms using the additive method.
Whatever... I’ll watch for updates; hopefully there’s more to come on this app...
