Let's Play with Volt

YouTuber Me was feeling pretty bad for Numerical Audio. They've brought us some fantastic effects in the past, but on the week they decided to release their first iOS synth... Moog released Minimoog. I felt Volt deserved some more attention, because Numerical Audio included some of their excellent effects built-in.

Video Description:

Volt is a new iPad synth app with AUv3, Audiobus, and MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) ... but you might have missed it because it came out the same week as Minimoog! I thought it deserved some attention, because Numerical Audio's built-in effects make for instantly satisfying patches.

Pretty cool of you to address this app, it sounds good and looks nice too and deserves some attention.
@Toz Bourne: I am very glad to hear you think that!
This is by far the most impressive synth to come out in a year.

Yes, I know about the others that came out.

Sorry, this app upon real playing is something special.

Perhaps his Fx suite, or the fact he is a musician, but the developer at Numerical has hit a home run and should be commended.

Must have synth for 2018.

Fo sho!

Tim what oscilloscope is that you used?

Something I made myself many many years ago in Native Instrument's Reaktor. I'm able to load it up as a VST effect and watch it directly on my monitor while recording!
Thanks for bringing this up Tim.

From a quick glance at the app store listing it would also appear to be 32-bit friendly, unlike the Moog app.

You say “Cynical Internet” as though there were another Internet. Where can we get that? Is it a subscription service? Can we throttle the cynicism?

Yeah! I get it with Comcast, but you're only allowed 1GB per month. Then they charge you $50 per GB after.
