Classic Analog Sounds With A Gritty Touch: Sugar Bytes Released Unique Synthesizer For iPad & iPhone

In the past months, it was calm at the Sugar Bytes front but now the company is back with a Synthesizer for iPad. Beside the big 1.5 update for Egoist, the developer from Berlin released a new iPad Synthesizer for iPad and iPhone. They ported their synthetic instrument Unique to the iPad and brings the same high-quality to the iPad. It includes vey cool modulation options and different oscillator types. Looking forward to checking out this new iPad app.





























“Unique sounds like syrup with dirt kicked into it. If Bootsy Collins, Roger Troutman and Daft Punk would have met up in Studio 54 to create a soft-synth, for sure something like Unique would have come out of it…” Sound & Recording Mag Unique was made for fun and vibes: Analogue sound, intense modulation and a killer set of features, delivering an amazing sonic spectrum that’s full of character: Classy sounds, powerful, warm… sometimes gritty.

Each of the 2 oscillators offers a selection of 5 waveforms: sawtooth and pulse waves are here, along with noise, triple saw and triple FM waves. There’s also an additional sub-oscillator strapped into the master section for added oomph.The internal controllers will bring in the dynamics: an LFO and an envelope, there’s a recordable XY field & a sequencer. Use these to modulate any knob – a simple long tap will do.





























The sound springs to life when it hits the filter section. Needless to say, analogue high-pass, low-pass and band-pass varieties are in place, along with a comb filter. Standards aside, the actual intention behind this project, the Vowel Filter, also became its outstanding feature: string together two or four vowel formants and play them back in a multitude of ways.

Once you’ve built your sound, there’s tons of sound polish in two chained multi-effect units.
