CHAiOS SYNTH 2 is a synthesizer that creates unique melodies with just one tap!
Place your finger on the main screen and a melody is generated by the CHAiOS algorithm.
If this melody sounds good, it can be looped and the sound can be tweaked using a number of parameters and effects. Or just swipe your finger and CHAiOS SYNTH 2 creates new melodies.
The options to modify the sound are carefully selected to work well together and provide a creative and fun workflow.
CHAiOS SYNTH 2 is a further development of the award winning* and easy-to-use CHAiOS SYNTH, which was formerly developed at the University of Applied Sciences Duesseldorf. The new version is beefed up by a number of new features and improvements. Now CHAiOS SYNTH 2 has become a full professional synthesizer while staying as intuitive and uncomplicated as its predecessor.
With support for Inter-App Audio and Audiobus CHAiOS SYNTH 2 can be used together with other audio apps on iPad.
