Ratings and Reviews
AudioKit Synth One is a wonderful example of how iPad can change the way music is made. This feature-packed synthesizer encourages play and exploration, providing plenty of fully customizable sounds to please even the most cultured of music producers. Built by musicians for musicians, AudioKit Synth One is a must-have.
Bardzo dobry, darmowy syntezator.
Great synthesizer application, excellent sound. To be improved: suddenly switching off the application after a few minutes (I dont’t know why), after changing to 16 steps in the sequencer, some steps don’t work even though they are included. Generally a fabulous free application!
Great synth ..thanks !!
Amazing synth... better than most paid apps. Give us AU support and it gets instant 5 stars !
