We have been getting great customer feedback regarding SynthX so far. Let us know what you think!

Beginner or pro, SynthX is great fun and candy for your ears and eyes.

You can chose to play using the intuitive XY mode that automatically makes every touch tuned to the selected scale, grid mode where you explore harmonies in a fun new way, and the keys mode that provides a standard piano keyboard.

Built using Way Out Ware's award winning virtual analog technology and heavily optimized for the iOS operating system, SynthX delivers a great looking and sounding analog experience to the iPad.

A mathematically modeled synthesizer, SynthX contains no samples. As a result, it is very small in size, yet it has an extremely large and professionally design sound library.

An effects chain including distortion, flanger, delay and limiter are included. Additionally, a separate identical effects chain is provided to process an external signal connected to the iPad's audio input.

SynthX has been designed from the beginning for the iPad and multi-touch. It has a comprehensive MIDI implementation using CoreMIDI including MIDI Note send and receive and MIDI Beat Clock LFO sync.

You can also record your performances within SynthX and use Sonoma Wireworks AudioCopy to share your performance with other iPad apps. It also supports iTunes file sharing which allows you to drag your performances in full quality into your favorite digital audio workstation.

Warning: SynthX can be habit forming. Please be sure to reserve time for it's use.

P.S. No natural sounds were harmed during the creation of this app.

What's New in Version 2.0

Added support for the Ion All-Star Guitar. Added new scale and guitar tuning editors. Added the new "Solus" 2 oscillator per voice analog synth model. Optimizations and bug fixes.

When using SynthX with a guitar controller, we recommend an iPad2 or newer. iPad 1 works well with 4 synth voices or less.

Customer Reviews

Fantastic app and fantastic app support!!

I love syntax and wanted to enjoy it with my ion allstar guitar bu no matter what I did I couldn't get the frets to work with synthX. I reached out the the creator and developer Jim Heintz and we emailed back and forth for the better part of a day. When all else failed Jim was nice enough to give me his phone number and with his direction of what to press etc he figured out that I found a bug and he was thrilled so that he can fix for the next update and I was thrilled as we found a temporary work around until the update and I now have been enjoying using the ion all star and synthX to it fullest capabilities. I am very impressed with someone who will go that out of their way to help ONY person. Thank you Jim and if you have any hesitation about buying this out just forget about them and get it because its awesome. On its own without the ion it's just as much fun. You can use the hundreds of sounds or create your own. The editing parameters are mind boggling! Enjoy

Looks are deceiving!

Judging by the screencaps, this app might appear to be a bit rudimentary and "Commodore 64ish". I can surely attest to the contrary!

Great sound, relatively simple user interface and the recording function is big and obvious, not confusing and over-thought like Addictive Synth and Akai Synthstation.

Just need to figure out a way to control the app via MIDI from BM2. That, or hopefully W.O.W. will add Audiobus, which will get my fifth star.

Awesome synth

Synth x is amazing. The sound is smooth and has no delays. There are all kinds of parameters to tweak and different layouts of notes to play. With the addition of all star guitar support its even more amazing. I wish this company made more apps. Thank you very much for this one though.
