The AudioKit Synth One is a special mobile app that takes a synth in your pocket to whole new realms. The instrument has been created by volunteers and is completely open source so you can rewrite it and customise it to your hearts content or even build your own synth from it.
The app has been created with sound design and consultancy from a number of esteemed synth techs and engineers who have worked with top artists and makers around the world. The app features MIDI support allowing it to be played on MIDI keyboards and controllers and features a sequencer, vintage-inspired analog filters, expressive arpeggiators, warm analog delays, and over 200 presets to play with.
