We have been getting great customer feedback regarding SynthX so far. Let us know what you think!

Beginner or pro, SynthX is great fun and candy for your ears and eyes.

You can chose to play using the intuitive XY mode that automatically makes every touch tuned to the selected scale, grid mode where you explore harmonies in a fun new way, and the keys mode that provides a standard piano keyboard.

Built using Way Out Ware's award winning virtual analog technology and heavily optimized for the iOS operating system, SynthX delivers a great looking and sounding analog experience to the iPad.

A mathematically modeled synthesizer, SynthX contains no samples. As a result, it is very small in size, yet it has an extremely large and professionally design sound library.

An effects chain including distortion, flanger, delay and limiter are included. Additionally, a separate identical effects chain is provided to process an external signal connected to the iPad's audio input.

SynthX has been designed from the beginning for the iPad and multi-touch. It has a comprehensive MIDI implementation using CoreMIDI including MIDI Note send and receive and MIDI Beat Clock LFO sync.

You can also record your performances within SynthX and use Sonoma Wireworks AudioCopy to share your performance with other iPad apps. It also supports iTunes file sharing which allows you to drag your performances in full quality into your favorite digital audio workstation.

Warning: SynthX can be habit forming. Please be sure to reserve time for it's use.

P.S. No natural sounds were harmed during the creation of this app.

What's New in Version 2.0

Added support for the Ion All-Star Guitar. Added new scale and guitar tuning editors. Added the new "Solus" 2 oscillator per voice analog synth model. Optimizations and bug fixes.

When using SynthX with a guitar controller, we recommend an iPad2 or newer. iPad 1 works well with 4 synth voices or less.

Ok, so I bought the first version and LOVED the interface, but I had nasty clicks, pops, and drop-outs in the audio, which rendered it useless for serious use....Jim, the fine gentleman that built synthx was always prompt and helpful with personalized tech support. The latest update has resolved ALL of my issues!!! What a GREAT iPad synthesizer! hIGHLY recommended!!! -Todd

Like having a polyphonic ARP AXXE in my iPad!

This new update was great! Not only did it fix the iOS 4.3 issues with the clicks and pops, but now with the voice count feature, I can lower it to 1 voice and also play monophonically just like my old ARP...

The sound quality is the real draw for me, though. It is a very faithful analog recreation, and SynthX uses the same excellent analog modeling algorithms used in Way Out Ware's desktop applications. It can sound butter smooth, huge and booming, or distorted and raging if you like, just like a real analog synth.

I especially like the envelopes on the filter/amplifier, they are the best I've come across on any iOS synth app, and I have them all. Silky smooth with a beautiful drop off curve. The raw waveforms are killer with a really nice pulse width mod, not to mention the filter self-oscillates and completely screams, so watch your speakers! This synth is a real joy, and compliments the other synthesizer apps in my iPad arsenal very well when using ACP and building songs.

Sonically there's nothing more to say, but functionally I'd really like to see tempo synced delays, maybe reverb, and some improvements to the in-app record function like a metronome. I hope these come in an update. Recommended.

5/5 stars


Synthx is simply amazing. The interface is as intuitive as it is unique. After 5 minutes I was truly hooked. I use my iPad in the studio and on stage and this app is my new favorite for both. The sounds are rich and vivid, but the use of the touchscreen is mind-blowing. This is the first synth app I've purchased where I didn't immediately want to feed it into a midi controller. I'm actually preferring to play the touch screen... Unbelievable! If updates include customizable scales and midi mobilizer compatability, I will hack the app store and give Synthx 6 stars.
