Erik The Great does it again!
First class updates to a first class app from a first class developer.
Get them all! What are you waiting for?
I always loved the sound of Shapesynth, but could never wrap my head around the minimal and confusing interface. But this update basically restructures everything--it's virtually a new app. The developer has grown and grown, I think. His more recent apps like Elsa and Strng are brilliant, and I think all that experience has been applied to reinvent Shapsynth! So nothing but mad props from this girl! 😊
Erik's update makes it a whole new app
Erik Sigth's apps are some of the most unique iOS music production tools around. They all have a GUI that admittedly one likes or doesn't like most of the time. If there are indicators to what a control does or at least a manual or help (?) option I don't mind the layouts. Thing with the old version of the shapesynth was trying to make patches while using such a bare interface did cause problems. Now that things are labeled and laid out better, the synth is a joy to play.
And a totally unheralded aspect of this synth is the brilliant recorder. For an old analog dude who learned on Tascam PortaStudios there is the joy of seeing the little tape graphic and some of the more tape oriented controls. The real use of the recorder should be explored, most synths get AudioBussed or AUMed out to a DAW like Auria or Cubasis, this recorder can allow you to make some cool experimental soundscapes and then manipulate them further on in a DAW or app like Samplr. Just a great app for under $5 and incredible at just $2.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
