AudioKit Synth One is a wonderful example of how iPhone and iPad can change the way music is made. This feature-packed synthesizer encourages play and exploration, providing plenty of fully customizable sounds to please even the most cultured of music producers. Built by musicians for musicians, AudioKit Synth One is a must-have.

Absolutely phenomenal

This synth sounds amazing, looks amazing, has more features than you would expect, and it’s free!! This quickly became a favorite synth of mine; I’m more pleased with it than apps I’ve paid $20+ for. I’m running it on an Air 1 and haven’t run into any performance problems with this.

Some features I really dig are the oscilloscope, the tuning controls, and the effects. It’s cool being able to see your sounds in real-time and not many synths—hardware or software—have that feature. The tuning page is really inspiring because you can get some nice variations while using the sequencer. And the effects sound absolutely beautiful. I also enjoy the ability to scroll through the different pages while playing the onscreen keyboard.

That’s not where the awesomeness of this app ends though. I cannot speak highly enough of what Matt and the rest of the team have pulled off here. To me, the greatness of a synthesizer is judged by how immersive the playing experience is, and Synth One delivers. You can quickly get lost in playing this because it is just that good. If you have an iPad, you need this app.
