Why ?

Buying apps through IAP is a non-starter for me. Also, like the person above me said: why?

At first I thought, "YASS" (yet another subtractive synth) and "BOGYL" ("but ours gives you less")

In the case of Fingerlab, I was going to cut them some slack. With DM-1, it's an intuitive and quick drum machine, but the sound quality and pro features aren't there.

I was going to assume that Fingerlab's concept with this was to bring something user friendly to the synth world. Perhaps they have done this. I listened to a short demo vid. Was that a bunch of aliasing I heard? Or are there lots of presets with a sub-oscillator on? Sounded pretty unpleasant to me.

On the plus side, they appear to offer a Mac OS version of the synth so you MAY be able to share patches between them.

This option of a free app with an IAP to unlock is one of the ways a developer can give you an actual DEMO. The only other option Apple provides is refunds, and that's not so reliable, is it?

I'd be curious if Apple could one day offer an "App Trial Buffer"-- so you have options to Buy or Try -- you click Try, and it loads the app into RAM-- and you can mess with it for some interval of time. Perhaps the developer can decide: 15/30/60 minutes, OR indefinitely (user clicks out), OR until screen sleeps. Also the developer could set up: user can demo up to X times, or reset demo count with each update.
Yeah, I actually like this sales model, Sugar Bytes do it as well. Download an app, see if you like it and then pay for the full version. That being said, please not another subtractive synth.

I don't even necessarily begrudge developers making lots of subtractives-- but at least they could ask themselves before they even start: "Why am I making YASS? What will my my synth different, better?
I guess this would be a great synth to learn how to use a synthesizer... I would have loved this when I started out and would recommend it to anyone else just starting out. it is clear, nicely laid out, you can see the envelope shape and the buttons move to you can see what/how the LFOs are modulating.

But it sounds so... boring... zzzz
