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.

Great improvement in Function and Payability
Good work so far and MAD PROPS for the great customer support on Synthtopia and the Lightning Fast Updates. The keys are playable now.

Good and halfway decent
Beautiful graphical interface, logical "rack" effect for pages, killer sequencer, the menu system (that being accessed from preset selection) is clear as day as I like the midi file/audio file separation ...that being said... Buggy (kudos for dev. being proactive with fixes), I feel the tempo is goofy as is the arp (the arp seems not to immediately reflect subdivision changes) -bottom line: this is SO close to really shining with 5 stars, I am really lovin' the devs. who are serious about designing pro synth apps!

Meh.
Works as advertised but doesn't raise any bars. It's fairly indistinguishable from any of the other virtual analog synth apps out there. I think it's terrible that you can't loop the playback of recordings and have to navigate menus to even play back what you just recorded. You also can't predetermine the recording length, so if you want to export your recordings to loop in other apps you need to trim them, which cannot be done within this app. This is a common shortcoming of a lot of similar synth apps. I primarily use apps like this for building loops and phrases to use within other apps like nanostudio and beatmaker. Given the shortcomings of this app's recording function, I doubt I'll be using it much. The sounds are okay, but in my opinion there are much better sounding synths in the same price range.
