Massive news from Audiokit, who have released a project several years in the making - Synth One, the world’s first completely free and open-source full-featured professional iOS synthesizer app. While open source software on the desktop is relatively common, it's much less usual to find it on iOS, especially in the pro audio world.
Crucially, Synth One is completely free, with no ads, no purchases of any kind and has all the features you'd normally expect from a commercial, paid instrument. It has been developed in consultation with synth techs and sound designers who have worked with M83, Rihanna, Kanye West, Owl City and many more.
Created by volunteers, the app includes MIDI support (play it with a MIDI keyboard or controller), sequencer, vintage-inspired analog filters, expressive arpeggiators, warm analog delays, and, over 300+ presets to get you started. Plus, it’s completely open-source so you can use the code to learn how to build your own synth app or modify the app yourself. Anyone can contribute code and features!
Upcoming features include:
The app is available to download for FREE: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/audiokit-synth-one-synthesizer/id1371050497?ls=1&mt=8
