Poseidon Synth - The Ocean of Sound
For all creatures in the ocean of sound - Sonic textures from other worlds, Analog signature sounds, Cut-through-the-mix leads and silkily smooth pads: Poseidon sets a new standard for sound design and ease of use. All of this was made possible through a combination of the familiar, conceptual simplicity of the analog synthesis and our frequency domain based Spectral modelling synthesis technology.
Spectral model oscillator
Select a basic sound model from over hundred delivered with Poseidon. The basic sound model determines the sound characteristic you want to start: taking a artificial model like “Sawtooth” gives you analog style sounds. Use complex models from analyzed samples for earth shaking ambients and evolving pads.
High level controls allow for changing the spectral shape, the harmonicity and balances the level of residual noise and spectral amount of the oscillator model.
The newly developed F-Domain filter allow for drastic changes in the resulting sound spectrum. Five filter types including lowpass/highpass characteristic can be used to shape the sound. They have the usual controls like cutoff but also very unusual ones like a variable slope ranging from 0 dB to 72 dB / Octave and independent controls for resonance and bandwidth! This kind of controls are only possible in the context of our F-Domain synthesis technology. This results in an extremely clear filter sound with breathtaking fast modulation possibilities. The filter type “Inverse” interprets the sound model as a "Source" and a resonant body "Filter". The cutoff parameter shifts the filterbase - this is the equivalent to making the instrument body smaller or bigger.
This simple control gives your sound a distinctive moving distribution in the stereo panorama. Every atomic sound particle has it´s own path through the space !
The sound browser in Poseidon gives you a fast selection of sounds based on category and timbre.

Ratings and Reviews
After playing with this a little more I find it to be very expressive. Would be nice to hear the original wave dry and blend/mix/morph from that. Great app for soundscapes you can also create some interesting synth patches once you get use to what's under the hood.
Pure Awesome-ness! (Thanks for Bluetooth MIDI/audio!)
VirSyn might be the best of the best when it comes to iPad synths. Poseidon is just incredible. Such a wide range of sounds, almost a bottomless canyon in this app alone. The advantage Poseidon might have over Tera synth is in the accessibility of the controls. They are all there right in front of you. And the Arpeggiator is great as usual.
Please add Bluetooth support and i will give 6 stars for every app! :)
Thank you very much.
EDIT: THANKS FOR THE BLUETOOTH SUPPORT!!! :D
This is one of the best synths I’ve tried on iOS. It’s remarkably easy to create your own sounds by importing from AudioShare.
And you don’t need to know what your doing to make something beautiful. The midi implementation makes this a real standout, rock solid with GeoShred, midi guitar, and ChordPolyPad.
A pleasure to use.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
