Moon Beam Synth/Sampler
By Christopher Conti
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Inspired in part by the Casio Sk-1's lo-fi sonics/sampling, the Moon Beam also adds features only possible in the touch screen world: bend keys independently!!! You can of coarse also bend all voices in sync using the touch pad. Also, for those of you Baroque sticklers... you can switch to well-tempored mode!
The Moon Beam Synth/Sampler gives you:
-Unique key independant pitch bending
-2 sample/oscillator layers for each voice... or split them to top and bottom keyboards.
-Effects (Delay/Reverb,Filter,Tremelo,Vibrato,Vinyl Noise,Distortion)
-Easy sampling for each audio source
-Easy editing of audio sample start/loop points
-4 octave keyboard + 2 pitch ribbons
-1 assignable effects touch pad
Bugs bugs bugs
This is a really buggy app, and I am disappointed that I spent the money (I am running a new iPad, current iOS, and all background apps off) This needs work before it is even usable, things like MIDI, Audiobus, Record, Copy, Paste etc. I like the aesthetic, but there are so many things that this needs that it falls short even looking good. I had to go through way too much crap to even get the presets to work, let alone the sampler. It has potential, but it really seems like a Beta. I should have bought a sandwich instead.
Just bought this app. Well-written and good user interface. Highly recommend.
