Absolutely phenomenal

This synth sounds amazing, looks amazing, has more features than you would expect, and it’s free!! This quickly became a favorite synth of mine; I’m more pleased with it than apps I’ve paid $20+ for. I’m running it on an Air 1 and haven’t run into any performance problems with this.

Some features I really dig are the oscilloscope, the tuning controls, and the effects. It’s cool being able to see your sounds in real-time and not many synths—hardware or software—have that feature. The tuning page is really inspiring because you can get some nice variations while using the sequencer. And the effects sound absolutely beautiful. I also enjoy the ability to scroll through the different pages while playing the onscreen keyboard.

That’s not where the awesomeness of this app ends though. I cannot speak highly enough of what Matt and the rest of the team have pulled off here. To me, the greatness of a synthesizer is judged by how immersive the playing experience is, and Synth One delivers. You can quickly get lost in playing this because it is just that good. If you have an iPad, you need this app.

Incredible!! One of the best synth apps for iOS to date!

Amazing app! Extraordinarily easy to use, fantastic sounding patches, and free! When I first downloaded the app and was asked for my email address to unlock additional patches, I used the address for my throwaway account. Once I started using the app, I was so impressed with the ease-of-use and quality of patches, that I deleted the app and re-downloaded it just so I could use my primary email address for notification of any application updates. I’ve downloaded most of the mid- to high-end synth apps for iOS (free and paid) over the years and this one easily rates within my top five overall and is my current favorite. Each time I launch this app, I experiment with new patches and I’m still awestruck with how amazing they all sound. The only thing that I would ask of the developers is please, Please, PLEASE port this to macOS and consider making a pro version for both platforms. I would buy them without hesitation!
