Synth: Nice iPad Music App but not for Serious Musicians

Synth iPad Music App

Synth Rating: ★★★½☆

Any application that can make me feel like I have any musical talent must be pretty good and I’ve found that many iPhone/iPod Touch apps can do that and now on the iPad a plethora of musical iPad apps are coming out which will hopefully make me feel even more like a musical maestro.

This time it’s Synth for iPad which aims to replicate an electronic synthesizer with it’s range of musical and crazy sounds to create musical montages with.

Everything you need with Synth is on the one made page which in one hand makes things very easy while on the other shows that it doesn’t have the range of options that other similar applications have.

The multiple-touch controls are both responsive and sensitive and the sound quality is good too with a decent range of 40 sounds to choose from and the ability to sample your own sounds.

The additional 5 adjustments also offer a degree customizations and the ability control the octave range extrapolates those options even more.

Ultimately while Synth is well put together and will entertain for about as long as a 99 cent synthesizer application should. If you want to have a handy synthesizer available to you for a quick blast of electronic fun every now and again then this will suffice, those looking for a more serious synthesizer with the options to produce a quality piece of work you may want look elsewhere.

The Good

  • Over 40 different instruments
  • Ability to sample your own sounds

The Not So Good

  • Not enough options for serious musicians
