In January I made a NAMM post showing off Jim Heintz of Way Out Ware’s latest project called SynthX. The iPad App is now available for $9.99. I downloaded it last night and it’s one of the best sounding synth engines for the iPad. It’s also quite fun to use. Check out a detailed review of Synthx over at Gearwire: click here

“Built using Way Out Ware’s award winning virtual analog technology and heavily optimized for the iOS operating system, SynthX delivers a great looking and sounding analog experience to the iPad. A mathematically modeled synthesizer, SynthX contains no samples. As a result, it is very small in size, yet it has an extremely large and professionally design sound library. An effects chain including distortion, flanger, delay and limiter are included. Additionally, a separate identical effects chain is provided to process an external signal connected to the iPad’s audio input. SynthX has been designed from the beginning for the iPad and multi-touch. It has a comprehensive MIDI implementation using CoreMIDI including MIDI Note send and receive and MIDI Beat Clock LFO sync.” – Jim Heintz
