Waveboard is an iPad app for creating musical instruments. Wire together touch pads, keyboards, oscillators, sensors, sliders, switches, speakers and more to build a synthesizer exactly the way you want it. Or choose from a wide selection of built-in instruments, from ballpark organs to spaced-out synth pads. Then mix and match components and rewire until you get the sound you crave. Waveboard is fully customizable and infinitely reconfigurable.

All components in Waveboard are polyphonic, so you can play touch pads and keyboards with up to five fingers automatically. Components are high-level, so you can build a unique and funky instrument with just a few parts.

For in-depth information and support, take a look at the manual, available at To suggest improvements or additions to Waveboard, contact


Building an instrument from the ground up means you’re as close to the music as you can get. To get an idea of the versatility Waveboard allows, explore a diverse library of built-in instruments whose sounds range from smooth to harsh, clean to funky, bright to dark, and everything in between. Customizable components allow you to tweak instruments to get what you want or trash it all and start from scratch.


Waveboard has a wide selection of components to build with, each with its own internal settings, so you’ll never run out of ways to create. There are no restrictions on how components can be connected. Multiply a drum kit by a sawtooth wave. Control a delay with the iPad’s microphone. Have a touch pad control pitch and a keyboard control distortion, and a sequencer to keep everything moving to the beat. Waveboard is designed to be as open-ended as possible.


Waveboard lets you record songs to upload to your computer or to play and solo with later. Record a beat and then play it back while you shred on a solo with any instrument. You can also upload instruments to share with your friends. By setting your instruments to the same tempo and key, it’s easy to rock out together. Let the jamming begin.

Brilliant Modular Synth

I was not expecting it to sound this good. Modular synthesis is a bit enigmatic, but this app makes the process very approachable and quite enjoyable. I do not know where it was hiding, but I am certainly glad I found it. I now have every modular synth for iOS and this sits on my top shelf. :-). Bravo!

What's Up With The Updates

What happened to the promised updates?! This could have been an amazing app but has been abandoned to the netherworld of apps who's creators just made tons of empty promises and not enough cash. Don't support these bums they don't care about the end user. Either finish coding your app or don't bother.

Nice idea

Too bad nothing indicates what works with what.which is needed on EVERY modular anything. So at least a choice exists to ease the first time people ,..into this ,rather than to debase their lack of some actual cool setups that lure us more and show us were to get the BEST results ! Peace christo
