Yonac's Magellan released!

Last month we heard a couple previews of this new synth from miniSynth and AirVox developer, Yonac.
Today it is available on iTunes, with an even more impressive demo video!

Great stuff! What an awesome demo.

iTunes Description:

Magellan is the bold new professional analog modeling synthesizer for the iPad. Not content with just one synth, we gave Magellan TWO independent polyphonic synth engines. Individually or together, they deliver a new powerful warmth to the sound of iOS music.

Synth Engine:
• 2 independent virtual analog synth engines

• 3 oscillators per synth engine; total of 6 oscillators

• Osc unison stage w/ adjustable detune & width, up to 24!
• Dual Keyboards w/ individual pitch & modulation wheels

• Dual Touch Pad controls w/ settable key & scale
• Polyphonic, Monophonic, Poly/Mono Legato modes

• Matrixpad modulation w/ configurable x/y destinations

• Realtime oscilloscope displaying output signal (iPad 2+)

• Audio backgrounding
• Synth coupling - allow running both synths by a single control interface

• 16 voice combined polyphony (8 voice combined for iPad 1)

In addition to the background audio, Magellan also supports Virtual MIDI and AudioCopy!

Among the 242 factory presets, Sunsine Audio designed 34 presets. That's a whole professional sound pack included free!

Buy Magellan on iTunes: $4.99 (On Sale, Intro Price)

Do not like it.
Sounds very sofware, like free VST plugin - cheap

Peter: did you get that from the video or have you tried it?

I'm guessing you don't mean software in general but just cheap/free vsti's?

I like how they slipped in Blondie's 'Rapture' at the end :)

Thanks, Hoyas! Fixed!

Awesome video. Going to purchase that a little later today.

Purchased. Definitely does not sound cheap. I was a little leary of the sound quality before buying. Even the presets are great.

It's like every day is Christmas, or something like that. I've now got more great sounding synths than I know what to do with. Ok, maybe I don't have enough, but it's getting there.

Holy cow!
It's got a bottom end like no other iOS synth. The engine is amazing, and best of all - the UI is functional, nice looking, and intuitive.
It's an amazing achievement, and hard to believe it comes from the same developer as the terrible MiniSynth Pro, which sounds nice, but is just so annoying to use.
This has probably been the biggest pleasant surprise of the year so far, considering I wasn't expecting anything special.

Did anyone noticed that when you change filters and/or the way they applied (serial-parallel) in one of the two filter sections the frequency knob on the other filter does not work as expected like the synth engine does not update the sound taking in consideration its position and the new filter settings. Seems like the two filter sections do not work in conjuction in real time and need a slight touch and move in the filter knob to sense the change.quite complex I know lol
