I’ve now had a brief play with Mobilesynth and for a free app it is very good. It is a mono synth, but it has good controls and it is easy to make sounds.

The downside is that you can’t store sounds (unless I’ve missed something), and I did find some of the controls awkward to use as the panels seem to slide away from you when you go to use them.

Anyway, it is worth a look if you’re interested in a synth on your iPhone.

  1. I agree with your criticisms about the interface and limitations. On the other hand, it has some features that a paid synth app like MiniSynth lacks. Since it seems to be open source, it might or might not develop quickly. Definitely worth a try since it is free and it is a good way to experiment with subtractive synthesis basics on an iPhone/Touch.


  2. I agree that it is a nice little app, and if a community of developers can get involved it could be a really interesting project in time, although I think you’re right in that open source tends to take longer.
