"Elegant, easy to navigate and sounds brilliant."
"I can't enough express how amazed and happy I am playing this app. Before to write this review I read the manual (you must) and tested every parameter until understand perfectly how every one respond to the final output sound. I have to tell you the presets do not show how powerful this synth can be, you have to tweak by yourself every filter, modifier and fx's. For me the filter is the secret in this app to get a differentiated sound compared to your other synth app's. Filter add a deep texture and resolution to the sound that I forgot lfo's and adsr's.""
"One of the best iPad synthesizers!"
"This sounds better than 99% of iOS synths. Filters are awesome. Modulation options are numerous. Effects are great. Sounds like a Mac plugin, not an iOS synth. Very little out there like this. I have paid hundreds on the Mac for this kind of sound."
"A wonderful synth with it's own unique character to it."
"This app is excellent! Just enough of a twist on the standard synth app to make it worth the investment. Patch creation seems to be the focus, and UI is perfect for flipping back and forth while working out new presets. Cloud support and coming VST integration makes this synth truly a promising venture."
"Huge tone that will cut through any mix Fantastic control options for the musician Rich sounds and a beautiful visual design A developer who cares greatly about his customers and creation (frequent updates) It's alive! Recommended!"
"Easy to lose yourself in sound design. The sound sources, fx, filters and modulations are all laid out to be very easily accessible. The mixer is great for tweaking the balance between the sound sources to fine tune your sound. Can tell some love went in to making this"
"Great, rich, full-sounding sounds! Great job!!!"
"Awesome updates from a developer who truly cares about both their customers and their work. Nice job!"
"It is FAT. The interface is intuitive. It is universal."
"This is really a fine example of a synthesizer whose developers love synthesizers. It is rather difficult to explain, but there is something within not only the interface, but in the nature of the sounds that this thing produces that shows their passion. This synthesizer is a patch designer's tool, not a preset player. Yes, it does come with some nice patches which show off some of its abilities, but when you start to dig in yourself, you can create some really unusual sounds."
"Excellent job guys. The GUI looks great and everything is extremely easy to access and in a logical way. The fact that you can upload your patch to the cloud and carry on working at home is a plus also."
"Nice effects section great delay nice chord section IAA instrument support complete with transport bar and Midi learn. Good stuff."

Ratings and Reviews
Brilliant and under the radar.
I use a Bitwig and Omnisphere on desktops now and see that this is a VST proved to iOS. That alone makes these chaps a great friend to iOSists...is that another “Ism” I have invented? Sorry. Brilliant super synth app.
Just seen the developers reply as well to these reviews.
Now you must...by iOS legislation...buy the paid version. That’s true in the UK, Germany, Canada, Spain and most other places. America, because they’re a little behind the times as far as culture goes (give them time!), will soon make this law to buy. After they’ve sorted their own laws out.
Is that the mist ridiculous review ever? The 5* rating should have told you to buy this. The Reading of this is your fault. I didn’t force you!
Seriously...this is excellent.

Thanks For the AUv3
Played with the free version for a while, and now bought it for the AUv3 version. Well worth it. Integrates well into Cubasis and I’m in love with the warm raw analog sound of this synth. Can’t see my previous review which i wanted to edit, but anyway I found all the extra modulation options for the filter in the dedicated mod tab (including keytrack). Great synth all round and one of the must haves for iOS.

Thank you very much for supporting Imaginando and for your kind words! Have fun with DRC!
This is not a free app as you are conned into believing. If you download this app you will find that it will play for about a minute and then stops with a pop-up that suggests that you that you pay £8 pounds to continue. Also not happy that I was asked to cofirm my apple account before I could download. I have already deleted this app. My message to the creators of this app is be honest and say the app costs and put the price on it don't con people into thinking this is a free app because you are wasting people's time and time is precious. I have given you one star because I could not give you less.

Hi, DRC is marketed as a free download, not a free app, we are transparent about our pricing. This is to allow users to try the app for free. The app store listing states the cost of each in-app purchase.
