Now we have more informations about the new Yamaha FM Synthesizer for iPad and iPhone. Yamaha launched from the dark today the FM Essential App which gives you an FM Synthesizer which a lot of sound design option. Even this app is available for free but the negative point here is the app is like a lite app. There is no in-app purchase available but you need to purchase one of their “expensive” new Keyboards for unlock the full features of the FM Essential App.

Available here: Yamaha FM Essential 
You can download this app for free. It features AudioBus and even AudioUnit support but isn’t really usable because you can’t save presets or you have access to the other available presets. So please Yamaha, release a small in-app purchase and I’m pretty sure they will buy it.
