RS-08 | 8 Oscillator Ribbon Synth

By DesignByPaul

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


8 oscillator ribbon mono synth with fine tunable chord memory.

The XYPad allows smooth pitch control and immediate jump to play back of 8 "Chord Slot"

Chord Slots are the saved, fine or corse oscillators pitches. RS-08 has 8 Chord Slots.

the XYPad allows instant call back of a Chord Slot making RS-08 a grate synth for playing one finger chords, or rich and dense cluster chords, or super saw like textures.

The XYPad combined with careful setup of "Chord Slot" and glide control can yield great Micropolyphony performances.

RS-08 is a unusual synthesizer loosely inspired by the compositions of György Ligeti.

Almost Worth Buying

Great sound, killer UI, what more could you ask for? Oh yeah—how about IAA or core MIDI support? Without those two important functions, this is just a toy that might let you create some cool samples, but it's not going to be one of your go-to synths.

Has potential, but...

seems half finished. I think that must be in the company's mission statement.
Controls are wonky.
Tones could be richer.
Preset saving more efficient.

Good start

Looks and sounds good. Needs basic documentation and some UX refinement. Right now the interface is a little clumsy and opaque, but this thing growls real nice.
