This video will show a few clips from my mobile jam session. I walked around a local park and made started some musical ideas today. My iPad Pro recorded the audio, I used the Microkorg and various iOS synths for audio.
I really enjoyed jamming out while in the nature, it's a pretty awesome experience.
Today Klevgränd released Syndt - Polyphonic Synthesizer. This AUv3 synth offers morphing waveforms, with alternating pulse width, both of which can be modulated! All of this will make your CPU grunt, so an iPad Air 2 or later is recommended if you're going to get very polyphonic with this polyphonic synth.
Syndt ships with 70 presets, and a weird demo video! The app is also on an introductory sale.
OBS! The price is introductionary and (~37.5% off) and will be changed in a couple of days.
Syndt is a high quality polyphonic synthesizer with a lot of possibilities. The oscillator waveform can be morphed between pure sine to pure square and supports alternation of pulse width. Both the shape and pulse width can be modulated by two independent LFOs. Finetuned low pass and high pass filters combined with a separate filter attack setting (optionally based on velocity) makes possibilities to create some raw and interesting sounds.
The additional LFO can be shaped exactly as the oscillator, and optionally controls filters, gain and pitch (using a modulation wheel or just automatcally). This LFO can be synchronized to a AUv3 host.
Globally there’s a nice stereo chorus, ping pong stereo delay (that also can sync to a AUv3 hosts bpm) and EQ.
* AUv3, works with AUv3 compatible hosts like GarageBand, Cubasis, Auria, AUM etc.
* 70 professionally made presets
* XY pad based oscillator and LFO (PWM on the X axis and morphs between sine and square on the Y axis)
* Independent mini-LFO (sine only) for each axis of the oscillator XY-pad.
* LP / HP filter with resonance
* LP Filter can be velocity sensitive
* LP Filter has an optional attack time
* LFO can affect LP filter, HP filter, gain level and pitch
* LFO has an optional attack time
* LFO can be syncronized with an AUv3 host (AUv3 mode only!)
* Ping pong stereo delay (optionally syncs to host)
* Stereo Chorus
* Three band EQ
* Legato mode with glide speed parameter
* Pitch bend range
Important: Syndt in stand-alone mode does not support IAA or MIDI. You can try it out using the keyboard at the bottom, but that’s it. We recommend using Syndt with AUv3 compatible hosts.
OBS! Syndt oversamples the signal and uses sophisticated DSP features which makes it consume quite some CPU. An iPad AIR 2 or better is recommended if you’re planning to use many voices simultaneously.

Comment here for a chance to win. I'll close the contest tomorrow morning so winners will be able to play with it over the weekend. Please keep in mind that Audiobus 3 requires iOS 10.2 so if you're not on iOS 10.2 you might want to skip this contest for those that are.
Contest closed! Congratulations to gsm909, Adam, and daveknapik!
Uri Nachmias has released an update to Sonic Logic with Audiobus 3 MIDI routing! The update allows you to easily route this custom MIDI control surface to (and through) other apps in the Audiobus 3 MIDI world.
What's new in Sonic Logic v2.2:
Audiobus 3 compatibility - Sonic Logic can now act as a MIDI source for Audiobus 3.
This update also improves Sonic Logic's performance.
Reader Toz Bourne has released his 5th album! Toz had some difficulty nailing down a genre to describe this one, but I'll call it Jazz Punk. Far from Mindless rambling, though there are discordant elements, the album remains musical throughout.
