Synthecaster Now Universal

Just a couple of weeks after Synthecaster was released for iPhone, it has now been updated as a Universal app!

What's new in Synthecaster v1.1:

  • Synthecaster now natively supports iPad, which can play up to seven notes at once.
  • The app will now rotate to match your device orientation (either Landscape Left or Landscape Right)
  • The range of possible row tuning intervals has been expanded from 4-12 to 0-12.
  • Note bending has been slight tweaked.
  • Dismissing menus by dragging from the bottom is easier to activate.
  • Fixed bug where presets menu would disappear after sharing a preset.

Buy Synthecaster on iTunes: $0.99

At the time of this posting it is still priced like an iPhone app! Here's a new demo from Daniel Resnick on iPad.

It may not look like much if you only go by the screenshots and looking at the price, but this one is actually a pretty versatile and good sounding little synth. If you're into iOS synths, at only a buck it's a no brainer. The one thing I'd like to see are scales and custom scales. The cubes reacts very nicely to pitch/vibrato and all, but I have no feckin clue what I'm playing. It's fun, TF7 does something similar but that one at least has a major scale (where's the minor Pier?), but It is kinda like learning a completely new instrument without being able to set scales. Anyway, at one buck definitely recommended!

If somebody is having troubles updating, the developer posted this on the Audiobus forum:

"It seems if you have the older iPhone version on your iPad, you have to completely remove it first, otherwise the updated version will just crash. I don't know the exact cause, but it probably has something to do with changing from an iPhone App to a Universal binary."
