Any app that quotes the venerable SK-1 as an inspiration is worth a look. The app’s original description is:

“Inspired in part by the Casio Sk-1’s lo-fi sonics/sampling, the Moon Beam also adds features only possible in the touch screen world: bend keys independently!!! You can of coarse also bend all voices in sync using the touch pad.

The Moon Beam Synth/Sampler gives you:

  • Unique key independant pitch bending
  • 2 sample/oscillator layers for each voice… or split them to top and bottom keyboards.
  • Effects (Delay/Reverb,Filter,LFO,Vinyl Noise,Distortion)
  • Easy sampling
  • Easy sample editing
  • 4 octave keyboard + 2 pitch ribbons
  • 1 assignable effects touch pad”

The latest version, the first update in over 3 years brings …

  • Midi support
  • AudioBus
  • Presets (Default and User created)
  • LFO with noise mix
  • Sendable Knobs (to FX pad or LFO)
  • Increased Performance
  • Fixed a handful of audio glitches
