I'll have to skip this app..... I don't want a music app brainwashing me into buying a $400 knob.

Sounds great! I'm excited to get this. There are so many more awesome apps but the first thing that sprung to mind after listening ot this; “A Synthi AND Synclavier in one device”

Looking at the compatibility section of the store listing this might run on my old iPad 4!

Which would be great.

There are quite a few familiar sounds there. I can hear some sounds from some of my favorite songs of that era.

Neither the GUI nor the sounds are enough to pull me in, but it looks like there's some heavy potential there.

People who pass up this deal will be sorry. I remember when this synth hit the streets. $250,000 with all the bells and whistles. What few SynthDudes there were in that time wanted to get ahold of one of these things. The sounds they made was astounding for the time and just the idea that you could record to a hard disk just blew all of our collective minds. The Synclavier competed directly with the Fairlight for big time musicians money, usually as a rental, but a few musicians took the plunge outright. There some significant differences in how the Synclavier and Fairlight operated and each had its proponents, but usually if you were an American artist, you used a Synclvier and the Fairlight was favored by artists from the UK. I think that most of the ‘80s electronic rock that featured these 2 synths was made richer (no pun intended) by the use of these apps. I think that upon the release of this synth (the Fairlight has been available for years) as an app for $20 are going going around with a funny smile on their faces trying to figure how Karma applies in situations like these.
