Nothing too fancy
Nothing new or ground breaking here. It is just an ok synth app. Not disappointing, but also not mind blowing. Worth keeping.

Works in the background
Excellent sound, and still works while running in the background, unlike Sunrizer. Works well with Geo Synthesizer (running the latter as a midi controller)

Pretty Sweet
I like the neon blue to it but it's a little confusing.

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!
