I like this synth very much. However, there are a few problems that need to be worked out.

1. I've tried maybe 20 times to get register and get the free presets. I bought the desktop version and followed the instructions, but it doesn't work. I did get a brief one-question response from the developer, but haven't heard back for a few days.

2. The iOS version manual still mostly applies to the desktop version and in a few places doesn't seem to match the current version of the app.

3. The implementation of scala files isn't complete. The manual refers to the desktop version and where they can be stored. But there isn't any way that I could find to import scala files. The developer ignored that question altogether.

It may sound like I'm whinging, but really I'm not. I got a fantastic deal on three versions of this great synth: SynthMaster and SM One for desktop, as well as the iOS version. Normally, I don't care much about presets, but this is a deep synth, and having a bunch of quality presets as starting points would be helpful (and fun).

Will watch the vid tonight. This is my most used synth since it launched. Has an amazing range of very power arp sounds. I've used it on a few beatmaker 3 tracks now. In fact I use multiple instances. On my most recent track I used at least 3 instances. The fact that it launched with auv3 meant instant purchase.

I will post a like for the video tonight.

No state saving

The mod wheel / pitch bend is not well implemented "jumps around when touched" - it is fine in their other ios synth..

Sometimes the osc waveform display doesnt pop up...

Waveform display doesnt fit properly on screen (cant see zero crossings) - cannot adjust - start/end of waveform is deplaced...

Seq/arp plays the correct tempo, but not "in time" with link

Weird that when one deactivates filter 2, the amp envelope jumps from #2 to #1

-some other things i cant think of right now....

But yeah, nice synth:)
