Pianofly FM Synth
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
It’s never been easier to perform music, or to create your own sounds. Play solo or jam along with any song in your music library. Let your fingers fly!
To make Pianofly a great instrument, we made a great keyboard: an 88-key, multi-touch piano keyboard that you can scroll while you play. The keys are large enough so even big fingers can always hit the right note. Yet by scrolling, a melody can span many octaves. Use the bar along the bottom to scroll silently, or to hold the keyboard in place. A great way for DJs to add effects or improvise over their playlist or for students to practice a new song.
We’ve included 60 instruments to show you the variety of sounds you can create, but we hope you’ll learn from our examples and then create your own instruments to match your needs and your musical taste. Finish off your sounds with a custom icon using any image in your photo library.
Even if Pianofly is your first synthesizer, you can easily create and discover new sounds: drag sound waves to make them longer or shorter, drag from one node to another to link them, or double tap a node to shape it over time. Synth experts will love the control, clarity and stability of our synth. You adjust the sound directly: no knobs, switches or buttons. And it all happens live; edit every aspect of the sound while you play!

Sounds nice, but it needs serious additions
There is some false advertising? It claims that the app is multitimbral, but how do I play multiple presets at once? Also, there is no IAA, Audiobus, or AUv3 support.
