What's New in Version 3.0
New exciting 'Circuit' drumpad sample set!
Performance increase for iPad1.
Minor bug fix with instrument selection.
Physynth is NOT a synthesizer... Without filters or envelope generators, it's barely a sample player, but Physynth isn't about the sounds so much as a unique way to create notes. Unfortunately, the notes it produces tend to sound without any sense of rhythm, which is the most fundamental aspect of music. The developer has clearly put a lot of effort into the graphics. Tilt your iPad and the panel and knobs shimmer as if being lit from different angles - very cool, pointless to sound creation, but cool non the less. I wish that it didn't have the antique "aged" look to it which makes some of the labels hard to read. I don't think it is a great instrument, but it is fun to play with, and with the right updates, Physynth could become a powerful tool.
Underrated, and super groovy!
It is unfortunate that many folks who write bad reviews have more than likely never read the manual, having said that, this app can create some really wonderful soundscapes. My only request would be CoreMIDI support, and better export/copy/paste functions. It looks really swell too!
I really like this app, it has a lot potential, but there has not been an upgrade for quite some time. The app promises more sounds but still waiting. There is really no other app out there like this one. It takes a lot of tweaking to get use to the app, but one can create some cool soundscapes with this app.
