Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Magellan iPad Synthesizer

One of my absolute favorite synths for iOS just got even better. The “spawn” feature in this synth is wicked. It allows you to create new patches through a randomize process. The spawn feature is improved in this version and expanded.

What’s New in Version 3.2

This update includes…
• Expanded and improved SPAWN – use AI to magically create new and better presets at the touch of one button

Magellan is the bold new professional analog modeling synthesizer for the iPad. Not content with just one synth, we gave Magellan TWO independent polyphonic synth engines. Individually or together, they deliver a new powerful warmth to the sound of iOS music.

Complete with a full FX rack, a total of six oscillators, dual filters per engine, multiple unison stages, extensive modulation matrix, dedicated arps, powerful MIDI capabilities, and a polyphonic step-sequencer – the aural possibilities with Magellan are infinite.

Yonac MiniSynth 2 Synthesizer For iPhone
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

MiniSynth2 Synthesizer For iPhone

Back in 2008 when the App Store was very young, Yonac released miniSynth, the very first iOS synthesizer. Compact and user-friendly, it introduced hundreds of thousands of iOS users to synths and paved the way for the great things to come in mobile music making.

We have come a long way since, continuing innovation with our flagship synth Magellan. As our apps grow more and more sophisticated, we wanted to also continue the heritage of the original app that started it all. So, here with all its elegant simplicity is miniSynth 2.

miniSynth 2 continues the spirit of the original, adding advancements we made in DSP, design and features over the last half decade. Simple and easy to use, miniSynth 2 projects a solid, fat tone from a strategic feature set — an “abbreviation” of the sophisticated features we offer in our pro-grade synthesizers.

Like all our synthesizers, no compromises are made with sound and functionality. There are NO samples used, just real-time virtual analog synthesis.

miniSynth 2 also includes production-friendly features, such as Audiobus output, audio copy/paste, and a MIDI In port for playing miniSynth with an external controller or a virtual-MIDI app.

For the iOS pro and the novice alike, miniSynth 2 is intended as a back-to-basics synth answering the call when the inspiration strikes.

miniSynth2 Screentshot

— 32-bit professional quality DSP
— Extremely low latency
— Dual analog-modelling oscillators
— Virtual-analog Low-Pass Filter with full ADSR and Contour
