Rediscovered TF7

Several days ago I came across TF7 in the App Store. Downloaded it. I'm running it on my 1G iPad Pro. Restored my two purchases. After experimenting (after watching the extremely basic tutorial) for a while, moved TF7 to my iPads Synth folder. Bought another expansion pack (now I have the main ones; 1, 2, & 5).

The app could use a more detailed tutorial. The one critical feature TF7 is missing is note hold or note latching (that allows toggling on/off per note instead of the rather useless toggle all off at once type note holding). With all the modulation and FX TF7 has , tying ones hand to always playing limits your live play tweaking.

I gave the app two more stars. It'll stay on my iPad now but more as a limited use FX device w/o the note hold feature.

You can make, tweak and modulate some real cool sounds with TF7!

On my 4th Gen iPad, if I change the sound quality from medium to either low or high, the app freezes. Deletion/re-installation makes no different. Needless to say that I won't being paying to upgrade to Pro version.

Nice synt with a great virtual keyboard

Would be nice to see
- dropdowns for long lists (tunings for example)
- the simple glissando option for the keyboard, along with whammy and vibrato
- a possibility to use symmetrical tuning for the virtual keyboard, along with current “two rows over octave”

Great App

Great sounding FM synth! A genuine touch screen instrument as opposed to the usual virtual piano interface.

Never has there been an FM synth that is easier to program. This developer is responsive to customer needs.
