SynthMaster One Universal Update

SynthMaster One, from KV331 Audio, was updated with iPhone support, making it Universal! There is also a $2 iPhone version of the app that was just released.

The update also adds cloud sync to keep your presets and other data synced across all devices and platforms; including the Windows and macOS versions. Part of that cross-platform integration includes new waveforms and wavetables on iOS!

What's new in SynthMaster One v1.3.4:

New Features:

1. Universal App: SynthMaster One is now a universal app, running on iPhone 7 and above both as a standalone app and AUv3 synth. The iPhone version runs at native resolutions on iPhone 7/8, 7Plus/8Plus, X and XR/11.

2. Cloud Based Cross-Platform Data Synchronisation: Users can synchronize their SynthMaster One related data (presets, scales, waveforms, favorite presets) across multiple platforms (Windows, MacOS, iPad and iPhone)

3. Public User Library: With the introduction of cloud based features, users can share their presets with other SynthMaster One users, by simply uploading them to our Public User Library.

4. New Factory Presets: SynthMaster One now comes with 650 factory presets. We've added awesome new sounds from Kurt Ader, Brian Transeau (BT), Luke Neptune, Electronisounds, Fragment Audio and Mirko Ruta.

5. IAP Store: With the introduction of the IAP store, users can now purchase additional sound banks. Our first IAP is "Desktop Presets Upgrade", which increases the total number of factory presets to 1250.

6. New Scales: SynthMaster One now includes 350 scales, ranging from 5 note equal tempered to 12 note alternate tunings.

7. Real-time visual feedback for modulations: Modulation sources and targets now display real-time modulation information when the synth receives MIDI messages.

8. Improved Microtuning: Users can now set the keyboard mapping of the current scale to either "Fill Octave" or "Consecutive". The piano display highlights the notes of the scale. Under settings tab, the scale root note and A4 reference frequency can be set.

9. Files App Integration: Users can easily import/export SynthMaster One presets, waveforms and scales using the file browser UI.

10. MIDI Banks and Programs: SynthMaster One now supports MIDI Bank Change and Program Change messages to change presets. Users can easily create MIDI banks by assigning multiple presets to a MIDI Bank or by dragging a preset onto the MIDI programs list.

11. New Waveforms/Wavetables: SynthMaster One includes all of the waveforms/wavetables that come with the desktop version.

12. New Envelope Types: SynthMaster One now has 3 new envelope types: Digital, Profat and Oobee. Digital is the default algorithm in SynthMaster, whereas Profat and Oobee are new algorithms modelled after two well-known analog synthesizers.

The Sound Test Room did a video for the iPhone Version, and also posted this demo of the Universal app.

Since the update I can't load synthmaster one anymore as an auv3 in nanostudio 2
So all my songs are 'broken'.
Are there more people with this issue?

Oi, make sure you mention this at the ns2 forum and or audiobus, thats not good, this is one of my favs, glad you mentioned this!

Hey kees, perhaps you need to re run the ns2 thing that finds all your plugins, i think there is an option to rescan for plugins in settings... ????

Thanks for your input but it doesn’t help, I figured out that SynthMaster one also doesn’t load in Cubase and auria pro.
I’m on iOS 11.2.6 and synthmaster one needs ios10.
Standalone version works fine.
I think I need to delete and reinstall the app.

So great to see a very luxurious implementation of tuning maps-- especially with such a full featured synth. The other features look great.

It's worth mentioning that SynthMaster One has very fast modulation scan rates. (I don't know how fast, but it seems VERY snappy).

I feel quite comfortable deleting Z3ta+, as SynthMaster seems to do it all better (and a whole lot more).

In the case of this synth, I'm happy to see a preset shop, and will enjoy supporting the developer via IAPs of presets.

V1.3.5 was released to fix plugin loading in Cubasis by reverting the name of the plugin.

Not to pick gnits, but I think Doug's description of the "Fill Octave" button was backwards. When "Fill Octave" is ON, any of the remaining 12 notes that aren't part of the scale are "filled in" but not highlighted. When "Fill Octave" is OFF, SM1 will squeeze all the scale notes together so that playing a chromatic scale will ascend/descend the selected tuning map.

Doug mentioned creating your own tunings, but I don't think you can do that within the SM1 synth. You would need to do that separately and import it. Not sure you'd need to. The selection is quite comprehensive!!! I'm really pleased about that!! But if you had something specific or even utilitarian in mind, it should be doable. I think you can even do that in a text editor.

Between Zeeon, Synth One, SynthMaster One, AudioLayer, and the myriad of other synths, iOS is proving to be quite the pandora's box.
