Favourite ios synth/production apps?

#1

i’ve always liked caustic. i own the model 15 app but found it too unwieldy for a smartphone, would be better on ipad.

I can’t speak much for phone apps but on my old iPad 2 I enjoyed playing with soft synths like Laplace, Lorentz, SoundPrism, Magellan, Ribbons; groove boxes like Figure & Chordion; sequencers like Fugue Machine. I also spent a bunch of time getting into the more powerful modular soft synths like Thor & Analog Kit. I could never really grasp the interface in Audulus.
I did try Caustic on my old Android phone but my phone was pretty slow and I preferred the larger screen of a tablet.
Since I’ve got into Eurorack modular I don’t really do much synth stuff on my iPad apart from recording with AudioShare using a Behringer UCA-202 USB interface.

I get a lot of use out of Beatmaker 3, using an Alesis io dock to have proper 1/4” ins and outs and 5 pin midi

ruismaker noir is EXACTLY what i’ve been after for years. thanks so much. do you use it on mobile or ipad? if mobile, how do you find navigating it on a smaller scale? i’d be purchasing for phone

yeah it’s awesome! almost stopping me from splashing out on the DFAM, still thinking about it. they are really similar.

i got it for ipad mini, i only have a small phone (SE) and it’s pretty hard to make fine adjustments. might be alright on bigger phones.
