Addictive Synth for iPad

It was never so easy to create beautiful sounds and driving loops.
The unique dynamic wavetable synthesis allows you to explore an unprecedented
wide range of sonic territory. From acid loops, crystal clear percussions, realistic
human choirs to complex musical soundscapes nothing seems impossible
with only a handful parameters to tweak.

Together with the intelligent randomizer for both sounds and arpeggios you
will loose any sense of time and space while exploring unknown sonic territories.

Right from the beginning you'll understand why it's named Addictive.

New Version 2.4 available

- New preset management with categories

- New preset randomiser

- MIDI Clock Sync now with Start/Stop Arpeggio

- Easy Parameter Display

- Audiorecorder time limit bug fixed

- Cubasis IAA freeze bug fixed

Version 2

The new spectral noise generator adds a new dimension to the already huge
sound universe of Addictive Synth. This generator is the first of its kind and
allows for extraordinarily detailed control over the dynamic spectrum of the
noisy part of sounds. Despite its complexity it's pretty easy to use and integrates
naturally into the sound design philosophy of Addictive Synth.

With the integration of a hi end reverb we closed the last gap to get fully addicted.

One more thing…
…the revised GUI is now compatible to the retina display of the new iPad !
