Sound Maker Synth (universal) arrives

This is another app from the maker of the rather lovely Jack the beat maker, which I posted about a little while ago. Sound Maker Synth is a synth, but with the same signature interface which I find myself very drawn to.

Here are the app’s details:

This app is capable and complex FM synthesiser that can create rich and very strange sounds combining up to 10 sound generators. Every generator can be adjusted up or down from the main frequency almost without restrictions in range. There are 4 possible wave forms for the generator output and you can tweet the volume, modulation and add some tremolo effect. You can listen to the result sound while you are adjusting the new generator and just add it to the result when it sounds good.

With the Sound Maker Synth you can also add reverb and then play it as a one voice synth using the one octave keyboard at the top. The app is very capable to create some strange and alien like pad sounds as some dubstep bass.

Sound Maker Synth costs $1.99 on the app store now:

Looking for a new drum machine app? Maybe Jack the beat maker will do?

I have to admit that I like the title. It made me chortle slightly, and that’s always a good start. An app with a bit of humour in its name is no bad thing in my book. I also quite like that it looks a bit like a calculator and also reminds me of the Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator series too.

I’ve not tried this out, so I can’t tell you if it’s worthwhile or not. However, it is very cheap at just $0.99.

Here are the app’s details:

Pocket size drum machine, perfect for making beats. You can record live with the drum pads and even add simple bass line to the beat. 2 drum kits with 12 tweakable drum sounds and customisable bass sound. Easy to use!

  • real synthesised bass sounds
  • sampled drum sounds
  • export to WAV or MIDI
  • metronome
  • real-time parameters

Jack the beat maker is simplified but yet powerful rhythm greater tool.
