Very Nice!

Appassin Greed

I really like this synth. It sounds great and the UI is superb. Everything is laid out really intuitively and clearly, and everything is virtually on one screen (many iOS synth developers could learn a lot from the design of this one). It might lack the analog character of synths like Moog’s new Model D app, but this sounds great and doesn’t require the power of the Moog. If you’re looking for a solid workhorse synth, Volt has got to be a strong contender.

No presets? FIXED

PBUH91

When I use iCloud as storage there are no presets and when I use local storage, the presets are in the list but nothing changes when they’re selected ! I have to redownload the app each time...

MPE is working with my roli lightpad block m, but I can’t edit midi mapping, pressing the buttons doesn’t do anything

I will update my review once these issues are fixed

UPDATE: My most pressing concern (presets not working) was fixed within a few hours of posting my review! This thing is INSANE

Excellent

Triton1000

This developer knows his UI. Very intuitive. Good sounds. Excellent synth. Generous intro price. Worth full. Very talented. Some more presets would be great for those who aren’t programming synth heads. And randomise function of LFOs envelopes etc, to discover new sounds would be cool.
