Laplace is a physical-modeling synthesizer based on resonator synthesis that makes it easy to create bowed string, plucked string, blown pipe and metallic sounds. But it is designed not to reproduce real acoustic instruments but to create new synthesizer sounds in different new ways.

Ratings and Reviews
Love this app
Fantastic take on physical modeling and basic FM. I could see amazing potential if more FM operators were added. Great synth for experimentation and generating really interesting patches that are unobtainable in a typical subtractive synth. Question: what is the difference between the Resonator types A and B? Could you give us a better description of the Resonator Strength and Color controls in addition to being an APF? Thanks for a really interesting product!
Capable of serious noise / drone experiments
Don’t let the presets fool you, this synth can sound like the jaws of hell if set it right, can’t wait to hear it on a big soundsystem.
Your ability to create new sounds unlike the factory set provided.
I love this app as well as all the apps created by this developer. Basically, the factory presets are just bad, but that can be a good thing. The first thing I look at before purchasing a synthesizer is can I create and store my original presets. On this inexpensive synth you can. It tests your ability to not have a ton of LFOs, Oscillators, Envelopes and it does make the sounds that are specified in the information paragraph easy. I like to take a synth known for some specific sounds and move as far as I can away from them. In one hour I had a half a dozen presets that were completely different from the factory set. If you want to challenge yourself, for $4.00, this synth is a great test for your creativity. 4 stars because no Bluetooth, other than that a lot to work at.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
