This month we check out Synth Apps, virtual instruments for iOS musicians.
The Electronic Musician Guide to iOS Soft Synths – In recent years, using iOS-based synthesizers onstage and in the studio has become a practical reality. One reason is that the latest iPads and iPhones contain more powerful processors than even some recent laptop computers. Apps are growing considerably more sophisticated and more closely resemble their computer-based equivalents, often by leveraging all that processing power. Thanks to economies of scale and the difficulty of pirating iOS apps, they’re also less expensive (and often more versatile) than synthesizer hardware.
