Igor Vasiliev, maker of excellent apps like Soundscaper or Fieldscaper, released today a new Synthesizer application that is specially designed to make deep textures, drones and soundscapes. Normally, you can create with any Synthesizer these kind of sounds but Synthscaper has a complex oscillator-sample section and very create unique features that works perfectly with these kind of special sounds.

With up to six envelope generators and six LFO’s, Synthscaper can create easily very deep evolving soundscapes. To offer more creative flexibility, Igor also includes a set of keyboard scales and allow also user custom scales. In total, I’m pretty sure Synthscaper will be one of the must have Synthesizers for iOS for this year and especially experimental musicians with a big love for soundscapes and textures can’t miss this one. Currently the app doesn’t feature iOS AudioUnit support but hope a lot that Igor will bring this in a later moment to Synthscaper. Hopefully also to Soundscaper and Fieldscaper.

Synthesizer specially designed for creating and experiments with ambient soundscapes in wide range from noises to melodic instruments and everything in between.
You can construct melodic pads or atonal soundscapes from different kind of built-in or downloaded samples by using all power of multi-layered oscillators, chains of filters and effects, envelope generators and low frequency oscillators. Or just use predefined scenes and creating your own scenes from library of oscillators presets.
Very flexible settings of each module give you a great opportunity for creating unique and colorful sounding from usual instruments or natural samples and adding automated changes and spatial effects for an endless variations. Different ways of assigning screen and MIDI keyboards to the oscillators provide very advanced features to control the sound. The on-screen keyboard is adapted to create special effects and varying the continuous textures and drones.

  • Three independent oscillators.
  • Three layers with own samples in each oscillator.
  • Six voices in each layer.
  • Six low frequency oscillators.
  • Three layers with own samples in each oscillator.
  • Six voices in each layer.
  • Six envelope generators.
  • Six low frequency oscillators.
  • Separate arpeggiator for each oscillator.
  • General processing of level, balance, LPF, HPF for each layer.
  • Three additional slots for filters and effects after each oscillator.
  • Set of different kind of filters and effect modules
  • Spatial mixer with two different sound space.
  • Screen keyboard adapted for continuous drones and soundscapes.
  • Predefined set of keyboard scales and custom scales.
  • Full screen, double and split features for screen keyboard.
  • Options of screen keyboard for pitch, continuous, modify, velocity.
  • Supports for two virtual and two MIDI keyboards at the same time.
  • Flexible assigning keyboards and controls to the oscillators.
  • Two main effects controls can combine several parameters.
  • Uploading samples thru Dropbox, Web access, clipboard.
  • Auto and manual tuning of samples with frequency analyzer.
  • Set of predefined and ready-to-use scenes and presets.
  • Built-in library of samples of instruments, synths, noises, etc.
  • Detailed application description.

  1. Hört sich interessant an. Wieder ein Synth zum entdecken.
    Was da aus eigenen Samples raus kommt ist bestimmt faszinieren.
    Nicht unbedingt für Jedermann. Aber die Tastatur mit ihren features ist interessant.
