Primer Synth by Audible Genius

Last month an update to Syntorial removed Audiobus and IAA, but promised a new app with AUv3 would be coming soon. This weekend Audible Genius delivered with the release of Primer Synth. This app is intended to be the essence of subtractive synthesis in a simple interface. And it is totally free!

Primer synth iTunes Description:

Primer is a synth equipped with the most essential controls and nothing more. Created by Audible Genius, it is an exact replica of the synth used in their award-winning synthesizer training app, Syntorial. As such, Primer contains the most common controls found on most subtractive/analogue synths, allowing for a wide variety of patches and sounds, while presenting a simple and easy-to-understand interface and layout.

Included with the Primer app is the AUV3 App Extension, allowing you to open multiple instances of Primer inside popular DAW apps like Garageband, Cubasis, and AudioBus.

Electronisounds - There Are No Rules!

Dean from Electronisounds has got an impressive hybrid live jam setup with 2 iPads and an Akai MPC Live. For this performance he's using BeatMaker 3, and RE-1 is adding some dub delay as a send effect from his mixer. The "vocals" on this are samples from Christian Vance in a Sonic Academy tutorial, with the role of female counterpart played by Dean's wife!
