Ratings and Reviews
When it works, it works wonders. However I've been switching between this and Figure and when I swipe to go back, sound no longer is outputted. I have to restart the app to get audio output again. Please fix it. I love the sounds but I need to be able to switch between apps and have this still work for me.

Great Potential, Bad Stock Sounds
This is the most full-featured synthesizer available on the iPad at this time. It's range of sound supersedes the miniSynth and the built in sythesizers of Aurora Sound Studio and Bleep Pad, assuming you get the upgrade so you can edit your own sounds. The sound itself is not as warm as the miniSynth or as rich as Bleep Pad, but there are more parameters to modify, giving a greater range of possible sounds. For example, you can switch the filter from LP to HP. You can modulate 6 parameters at once with the mod wheel. You can modulate the pulse width of both oscillators for all waveforms. It has all the parameters you need to make really bizarre noises.
It's best actually for creating really strange noises.
The built-in sounds, in general, are pretty bad. You really have to get your hands dirty to get value out of this, but if you like doing that, you will like it.
