AudioKit Synth One: Official Specifications Revealed

The specs for the much-anticipated open-source AudioKit Synth One iPad synthesizer were revealed today. The app will be completely free and will be available as both a stand-alone app and AUv3 plug-in.

The app features a “who’s who” of sound designers, including Red Sky Lullaby who joins an all-star cast of sound designers for M83, Tycho, Mike Posner, Neon Trees, and more. We’re excited to get our hands on this one.

You can even read our exclusive interview with one of the developers, Matthew Fecher, at GearFest a couple of weeks ago. At which point we had a few minutes of hands-on time with the app. Even on the loud and crowded showroom floor, we could tell that this app is going to be something special.
