Back in the day, I did some serious scoring with my DX7. How well I remember it shaking the pillars of analog heaven with its FM/Chowning mysteries, its generous polyphony, great electric pianos and romantic harmonica and incomparable, plucked jazz guitar. Now, here again is some of that joy, not only guilt-inducingly free, but to me the best expression of DX Heaven to come down the iOS pike. Ever. It is not a synth, but gloriously adds to the inscrutable DX programming interface some approachable analog tweaks: filter, reverb, tremolo, a luscious stereo widener. Free. Yikes. In a great year for apps, this little one--great-trick Clydesdale is my favorite new pony. I am hoping for some more sounds (harmonica, guitar) a IAPs. HUGE thanks to Matthew Fecher for a great holiday gift. Wish I had ten stars.
Nothing free in Life? Holiday Gift!?
This Synth is a gift beyond measure. A true “gift”! Unexpected, free and more than you thought it would be. I am a 40 year old graduate of being involved in sound design. I always am disappointed by IOS Synth Factory Presets. Not this time! Only 60 presets, but just like life, it’s not quantity that counts, it’s quality and this Instrument make’s you feel like you are playing the real deal. Hooking this up to my weighted 88 and it becomes even more amazing! I love gifts, but this developer deserves a financial thank you! Best Christmas gift I have received this year. Maybe Santa is behind all of this. Wow, ultra impressive! Happy Holidays indeed!
Wouldn’t it be nice if all free apps were as good as this?
I can help feeling that I’m going to get a pop up right in the middle of playing... “time trial has expired” lol
However that hasn’t happened. 😜
If this developer makes an app this good, and offers it free, can you imagine what a paid app may look like?
