Cassini Update and Sale

Both the iPad and iPhone version of iceGear's Cassini Synth were updated to add a new formant filter.

A formant filter is how you get "Talking Bass" and other vocal sounds out of synths, by filtering the frequency to make vowel sounds.

What's New:

  • Formant filter type
  • Arpeggiator loop length setting
  • Audio buffer size setting
    The audio buffer size affects the amount of latency and the CPU usage. Higher setting will reduce clicking noise at high CPU usage, but also cause more latency. Lower setting will also improve the tempo stability of arpeggiator.
  • Assignable controller knobs on keyboard screen respond to incoming MIDI
  • Improved sound quality
  • Minor bug fixes

So, the sale finally convinced me to bite the bullet and add Cassini to my relentlessly-expanding assortment of noise makers, and I gotta say . . .

Dang. There's a lot of great sounds on here, some spiffy arpeggios, but mosty, there's a metric TON of knobs and doolies to tweak and fiddle with. I wish the presets were actually given names to make them easier to identify (it's hard-ish to remember whether, for instance, C-10 is a pad, a lead, an arpeggio, or a bass). But with so many options for maximum tweakage, I can always just make my own bank of pretty noises and run from there. It may not have the "ooh sexy" factor of Animoog or the "Crank-it-up-itude" of Magellan, but it compliments everything nicely and definitely carves out its own corner in my collection. Totally recommended to anyone else who enjoys having a square acre of knobs that make spiffy sounds spiffier.

I actually bought Cassini and Magellan the same day right when they came out, and kind of neglected Cassini at first.
They more I play it,though, the more I like it.

A square acre of knobs indeed! Well put , cXeGG!

---I have Cassini for the iPhone and of course use it on my iPad, is there any difference between the IPhone version and the iPad's?

The layout of the user interface is redone to fit the iPad better, so the workflow is alot better since there are way less windows to scroll threw, but there aren't any extra bells n whistles sound wise or anything

@scott - what ChrisG said. I'll add: totally worth it. Much easier to navigate that square acre of knobs.

Yea, if you like Cassini the upgrade will make you like it all the more, since you'll spend way less time switching panels!

Cassini is the iPad synth that I want to love the most. I love the look, the layout, and the sound engine. What it really needs is full midi learn capability, with the same simplicity as Sunrizer, and it will be a Top 5 synth. With so many knobs and envelopes, I need to be able to tweak from my keyboard.
