SynthMaster desktop version is voted as "The Best VST/AU Synth Plugin" by MusicRadar readers and also received "Gear of the Year" award from MusicTech Magazine for "Best Software Instrument" category.
SynthMaster has received very positive reviews from acclaimed music technology magazines:
"SynthMaster: The most powerful softsynth you may not have heard of" Keyboard Magazine
"If ever there was a desert island synth, SynthMaster is it, covering all sonic bases with authority and a superb tone" Computer Music Magazine

SynthMaster Player for iOS is the MOBILE PLAYER VERSION of the award winning SynthMaster software synthesizer.
It is targeted towards users who prefer to use presets rather than designing their own sounds during music production. Although it is a preset based player, users can edit the following preset parameters:
1) 8 easy parameters assigned by the sound designer
2) 2 XY Pads assigned by the sound designer
3) Effect bypass states and send amounts
4) Layer bypass states and volumes
5) Master volume, polyphony
The free app comes with 100 factory presets. When users complete registration by entering their names and email addresses they receive another 100 factory presets as a bonus!
After completing registration, users can upgrade to the Pro version of the app by purchasing the "Factory Presets" bank via In-App-Purchase (IAP). With the Pro Upgrade all of the 800 factory presets are loaded and also the following features are unlocked:
1. Users can save the changes they have made to the presets.
2. Users can purchase additional preset banks via In-App-Purchase (IAP). We currently have 28 additional preset banks that contain 1750 presets for various genres/styles.
3. Existing SynthMaster users can download their previously purchased SynthMaster preset banks inside the app, so that they don't have to purchase them again.
4. Existing SynthMaster users can export their own presets in SynthMaster v2.x and import them into SynthMaster Player for iPad using iTunes.

(Automatically) Updated the app to V1.1.4, which crashed... Two days later, KV331 Audio released the fix!!! Now using one of my favorite apps again!!! Way to go, KV331 Audio!!!
Addendum (06FEB19): Thanks for adding a “favorites” tab!!! It was much needed! Such a great app!
The Synth For Preset Lovers
This and SynthMaster One are my go to synths for terrific presets. Tweaking sounds is not my focus. I just want high quality sounds I can add an effect or two for mastering. No other synths provide me with this experience so consistently.
It is also very stable. And now AUv3. A must have for users like me. Great work Bulent!
had synthmaster in my quiver since it came out, has been the most glitch free soft synths out there, i have them all. almost.
the tweakable samples sound great and more are available. best value out there....
