Magellan iPad Synthesizer

Yonac Software Magellan Synthesizer For iPad

Yonac Software (the makers of Shredder, MiniSynth, and AirVox) have done it again with this cool new synthesizer for the iPad called Magellan. It comes loaded with x/y pad for effects like bit crusher, flanger, echo, distortion and more. Set your BPM for tempo sync effects, LFOs, and an arpeggiator.

“Magellan boldly travels waters where others have not dared to tread: Two independent polyphonic synth engines, with a total of 6 configurable oscillators. Polyphonic unison mode giving 24 simultaneous wave generators. Two filter banks per synth engine, each bank with its dedicated envelope and 11 unique filter types to choose from. FM synthesis module with blend and dedicated envelope. Dual LFOs in each synth with 4 freely assignable destinations each. Complete FX rack with modulation, time-delay, reverb and wave shaping effects. Dual traditional keyboards, as well as dual touch pad performance interfaces with individual parametric control over each voice. Built in arpeggiator for each synth engine, allowing you to run two different arps simultaneously, as well as a built analog-inspired polyphonic step sequencer, and much more!”

This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are Synth One, EG Segments, Hammerhead, Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic. My work is published by Roland, Antares, Magix, Soundtrack Loops, Sample Logic, Acoustica, Loopmasters and many more. Subscribe to our RSS feed below to get updated when new apps are posted.
