BansiPlayer ,


I own 5 audio kit apps so I was skeptical that this would be a rehash since some of them do overlap and technically you could probably recreate any old fm sound with their synth one. But that would take lots of time and sound design skill because what is in this app is amazing so why even bother, this is one of my favorites already 5 mins in. Well done.
If you are into the chip tune resurgence or vapor wave I think this is a must buy.

Lots of fun, upbeat sounds

Sure, it’s mostly a 90’s game system sound romp,we, but there is more versatility here than meets the eye. Sounds can be used in just about any genre due to the well thought out and entertaining interface.
Midi maps well to controllers, enjoyable all around inspiration.

All that and a bag of FM chips

This synth is a must-have for anyone truly savoring the history of electronica in making their music, or in making retro video games. Even for early 90’s rave or industrial- indispensable. Buy it now, you’ll never regret it!
