Other apps by KV331 Audio

App Store Description:

SynthMaster One iOS is KV331 Audio's first full blown universal synth app on iOS platform. It's a powerful wavetable synth with an intuitive workflow. With its simple layout, rich wavetable/waveform content and inspiring factory presets library, designing new sounds with SynthMaster One iOS is a joy.

SynthMaster One iOS is feature wise identical to the desktop version except the following:

* 16 voice polyphony (32 for the desktop version)
* Comes with 650 presets (1250 for the desktop version)


* Universal App: SynthMaster One is now a universal standalone/AUv3 synth app running on iPhone 7 and above.

* 650 Factory Presets: SynthMaster One iOS comes with inspiring factory presets from a world class team of sound designers: Arksun, Aiyn Zahev, BigTone Studios, Brian Transeau, Bluffmunkey, Bulent Biyikoglu, Gercek Dorman, Dejavu Sound, Fragment Audio, Kurt Ader, Mirko Ruta, Nori Ubukata, Rob Lee, Ufuk Kevser, Selcuk Ergen, The Machine, Vandalism Sound, Venus Theory, Vorpalsound and Xenos Soundworks

* AUv3: SynthMaster One iOS supports AudioUnits V3, allowing multiple instances to run under supporting DAW apps like GarageBand, Cubasis or Beat Maker.

* Files App Integration: Easily import/export presets, waveforms or scales using the common file browser UI (requires iOS 11+).

* Real-time Modulation Feedback: See in real-time how modulation sources and targets change. This is a very helpful feature when designing sounds!

* Cross Platform Cloud Synchronization: Easily synchronize your SynthMaster One related data across multiple platforms (Windows, MacOS, iPad, iPhone)

* Semi-Modular Architecture: For each SynthMaster One instance, there are 2 oscillators with 2 sub oscillators, 2 Filters, 4 ADSR Envelopes, 3 LFOs, a powerful 16 step arpeggiator/sequencer and also 11 different effects that can be inserted on to 6 FX insert slots. The sub oscillators can be connected to the oscillators in 5 different modes which let you use it as a regular sub oscillator or do complex modulations such as ring modulation, amplitude modulation, phase modulation or frequency modulation.

* 32 Step Arpeggiator/Sequencer: The arpeggiator in SynthMaster One features classic arpeggiator modes such as Up, Down, UpDown, DownUp, UpDown2, DownUp2, AsPlayed as well as Sequence, Chord and Arpeggiate modes.

* Wavetable Synthesis: SynthMaster One implements true wavetable synthesis which opens up new possibilities for sound design. It comes with a rich content library with hundreds of waveforms and wavetables.

* Stereo Oscillators with up to 16 voices Unison: Each of the 2 oscillators in SynthMaster One have stereo output, and can have up to 16 voices "unison". Using the "voices", "voices mix", "detune curve", "detune spread", "pan stread", "tone spread" and "phase spread" parameters, each oscillator can generate a rich "supersaw" type sound.

* Zero Delay Feedback Filters: All of the 4 filter categories in SynthMaster One are developed using the zero delay feedback filter technology. With advanced filter parameters like input gain, drive, acid, filter nonlinearities and up to 4 times oversampling you can get that "analog" sound from the filters!

* Rich Set of Effects: SynthMaster One features 11 different effect types: Distortion, LoFi, Ensemble, Phaser, 6 Band EQ, Compressor, Vocoder, Delay, Chorus, Tremolo, Reverb.

* Microtuning: SynthMaster One supports Scala tuning, so tuning can be set either for each preset or globally by loading from a Scala tuning file. SynthMaster One comes with 300+ scales ranging from 5 note equal tempered scales to 12 note alternate tuning scales.

* Preset Browser: SynthMaster One features a comprehensive preset browser with separate search criterias for instrument type, preset attributes, music style or preset author.


* All 64-bit iPad devices
* AUv3 Audio Unit Extensions
* Note-per-channel MIDI controllers (MPE)
* Ableton Link
* Interapp Audio and AudioBus
* Bluetooth LE MIDI Controllers
* AirDrop

Finally got around to buying this. SO glad I did!!

First of all, it is incredibly powerful and flexible. Runs great, even on my iPad 4, iOS 10.3

I'm very happy to see a big mod matrix, scala tunings, and a very capable arpeggiator with very flexible rhythm attributes.

I need to figure out how to import things like wavetables and scala files.

When I registered, I got a 20% off coupon, and saw that they are already having a summer sale until Sep 3 (2018) and both discounts apply!!

So I'm going to get the desktop versions of both SM and SM One at a ridiculously low price!! I'm all in.

Hi guys, can anyone tell me if there is a possibility for the appstore version to change the look?
Are there any themes or controls for color changes (like iELECTRIBE)?
I like the black - blue desktop version much better.
Many people rave about Synthmaster One, but is it really the best synthesizer on the Appstore?
Which Appstore Synthesizers do you think are the best 2 for the iPad?

Unstable app! Honest, absolute taste aberration in the color selection!
Is there a way in the settings to change the colors by yourself?

Insane that this is currently free! AND... AND... this massive update that adds massive new features and presets.

In the past I was unable to get the bonus content that was promised for having bought both the desktop and the iOS version. It looks like that was bypassed, so I think I can put that to rest.

Not only is this a powerhouse synth, the tuning map implementation and file management stuff is amazing. Whenever I load up a preset that has a crazy tuning map, I think: "This is what I've been missing!" It is so refreshingly weird.
