Kinda ok start. Overall not so great. I can see me recording sounds from it into a DAW and processing the hell out of it. Otherwise sort of boring, and also not intuitive in some areas. Doesn't compare to the top end synths for iPad and not worth the price (yet).

Review revision
Okay my initial review was a bit harsh so I am rewriting it as I do believe in this developer, and I have spent more time with the app. So that said this is a pretty darn nice synth, the main OSC can easily be overdriven so if you are not liking the sound you are getting dial back a bit and work from there. Honestly when you open a synth app the same rule applies as if you were walking into a music store. First impressions of the sound quality and presets are huge. They should instantly spark the imagination and with the initial release I felt they were a bit lack luster, but after tweaking them a bit and dialing in the oscillator a bit I a really getting some nice sounds. I am really quite impressed and I am looking forward to further development and new apps!

Revised. Nice App, Great Support
Synth sounds and works great. Once I have my riff down, I simply audio copy to Music Studio. I had originally rated the app lower because I didn't think you could email a midi file. The dev was very quick to contact me and explain how you can export a midi via email through the patch menu. They were really nice even with the low rating I gave them, which turned out to be my error, not theirs. Great app and worth the money.

It's Pretty Cool
Not bad compared to some of the other synth apps. I'll definitely get some use out of it and look forward to seeing this app develop into something that stands out. But for 5 bucks ... I'm a happy camper :-)

Another Next-Gen Gem!
Could not disagree more with the "looks good, sounds bad" assessment of an earlier reviewer; it not only sounds good, it has incredible features like it's programmable mod wheel ( multiple, scalable assignments please? So the cutoff & resonance could be contrasted in one go? Just a thought), & an OUTSTANDING arpeggiator/sequencer as well as Audio Copy/Paste implementation. Made an awesome bass line sequence in my first exploratory session with Arctic Synth with no tutorial despite a fairly advanced feature set. Definitely a worthy addition to any iPad synth Toolbox Arsenal. One critical note; please work on the Ring Mod, it's unworthy of the high quality of the rest of Arctic Synth, and is pitiable. Kept this from being a 5-Star review.
