Synergy Studio an interesting and fun way to create music.

Synergy Studio is a sequencer that enables music creation by all musical abilities. By simply tapping on the grid interface users can lay down a series of notes and patterns of up to 64 notes to create a musical sequence.

You can add multiple layers to your patterns by selecting different instruments for each layer. As you build up your layers you can create intricate musical patterns which can be chained together into a song. By switching to the fully integrated mixer and effects options you can take your patterns to a professional level.

If you are a seasoned musician looking for a tool to help lay down new ideas or need more advanced features then Synergy has the lot, a fully integrated mixer, lots of plug-in effects, complete customization of instruments and patches and extensive automation facilities.

There are four main instrument categories to choose from: Drums, Analogue Synthesizer, Sample and Pad Synth. Each category contains different types of instruments. Further instrument packs are available in the Synergy’s free sound library or as In-App purchases.

Synergy includes MIDI implementation enabling you to interact with MIDI hardware, such as Synths and Samplers creating a powerful live tool.

Musicians can share projects with other iOS devices. Simply select the WIST function located at the top of the screen to seamlessly connect with other iPad to share tracks and projects with one another.

Exporting your finished songs and patterns from Synergy is just as easy with built in functionality for Dropbox, SoundCloud, Email, Pasteboard or exports directly into other apps such as Meteor Multitrack Recorder.

Although Synergy will run on the iPad 1, to get the full benefit we recommend an iPad 2 or later.

Synergy Studio is from 4PocketsAudio.com, the creators of Meteor Multi-Track recorder and StompBox guitar effects rack, which featured in Apple’s iPad 2 TV commercial in January 2012.

I deleted it hoping to get rid of the update notice.
It won't let the previous version reload.

A Fantastic 🎵 Tool


Coming from a traditional live instrument recording background, and having little experience with sequencing, I wasn't sure if I would like the way Synergy worked, but I decided to give it a try. It turns out I not only like it, I love it! It was so easy to learn that I knocked out a couple of great songs in the first few hours.

I recorded patches from some of my favorite synths and imported them into Synergy's sampler with ease, and used its tools to layer and adjust them so they are barely distinguishable from the original synths. I found It's two on-board synths, drum sampler, effects, and mixer incredibly easy to customize and then automate in order to produce stunningly professional results.

Then, I was able to add all the variations of song sections that I desired, which really surprised me, because I thought that 16 layers (tracks) was going to be restrictive – and frankly, not enough for the things I like to create. I am uncharacteristically happy to say I was completely wrong. Synergy Studio is a great song production power-house.

Way cooler now and cooler all the time


Really amazing depth here
3 kinds of editable synths
editable sampler and drum kits (import or record user samples) high quality fx w/eq and compression
16 track mixer with 3 band parametric eq
not to mention the crazy-editable arpeggiator that includes editable chord fingering

As a standalone this is an amazing sound design, composition and production tool, and as a co-conspirator/multitrack source for Meteor (with Audiobus already in Meteor, and now here) the workflow is blowing my mind: develop tracks in Synergy, send as multitracks to Meteor, lay down live Synergy (and any other Audiobus input app) tracks on top...
Don't mean to go on and on but I keep coming back to this one and Meteor, even after the advent of all the other DAWs. This combination of apps with multitrack sharing and Audiobus between them is a very open ended and flexible arsenal of synth, sampling and production tools. I dig 4pockets going back to Audiobox and the 1st Aurora...
