KV331 Audio’s super versatile and easy-to-use Synthmaster One wavetable Synthesizer for iPad is available as a free download for a limited time only.
A few days ago I reported that the iPhone version of the excellent SynthMaster One Synthesizer is available as a free download. It gets better and it’s not a April 1st joke. Today, the developers announced that the iPad version is now also available as a free download for a limited time. This is the full version with all the features including many sounds.
So you save $ 19.99 which is actually the regular price. If you want even more presets, you can upgrade to the desktop presets for $ 4.99 USD. In this case, you get 600 new presets and you support at the same time the developers. Big thanks KV331 Audio for this special deal.
Desktop Vs. iOS
SynthMaster One iOS is feature-wise identical to the desktop version except that it offers only 16 voice polyphony and 650 presets. But you can do the desktop presets upgrade that gives you an additional 600 new presets.
- Universal App: SynthMaster One is now a universal standalone/AUv3 synth app running on iPhone 7 and above.
- 650 Factory Presets
- AUv3: SynthMaster One iOS supports AudioUnits V3, allowing multiple instances to run under supporting DAW apps like GarageBand, Cubasis or Beat Maker.
- Files App Integration: Easily import/export presets, waveforms or scales using the common file browser UI (requires iOS 11+).
- Real-time Modulation Feedback: See in real-time how modulation sources and targets change. This is a very helpful feature when designing sounds!
- Cross-Platform Cloud Synchronization: Easily synchronize your SynthMaster One related data across multiple platforms (Windows, MacOS, iPad, iPhone)
- Semi-Modular Architecture: For each SynthMaster One instance, there are 2 oscillators with 2 sub oscillators, 2 Filters, 4 ADSR Envelopes, 3 LFOs, a powerful 16 step arpeggiator/sequencer and also 11 different effects that can be inserted on to 6 FX insert slots. The sub oscillators can be connected to the oscillators in 5 different modes which let you use it as a regular sub oscillator or do complex modulations such as ring modulation, amplitude modulation, phase modulation or frequency modulation.
- 32 Step Arpeggiator/Sequencer: The arpeggiator in SynthMaster One features classic arpeggiator modes such as Up, Down, UpDown, DownUp, UpDown2, DownUp2, AsPlayed as well as Sequence, Chord, and Arpeggiate modes.
- Wavetable Synthesis: SynthMaster One implements true wavetable synthesis which opens up new possibilities for sound design. It comes with a rich content library with hundreds of waveforms and wavetables.
- Stereo Oscillators with up to 16 voices Unison: Each of the 2 oscillators in SynthMaster One have stereo output, and can have up to 16 voices “unison”. Using the “voices”, “voices mix”, “detune curve”, “detune spread”, “pan stread”, “tone spread” and “phase spread” parameters, each oscillator can generate a rich “supersaw” type sound.
- Zero Delay Feedback Filters: All of the 4 filter categories in SynthMaster One are developed using the zero delay feedback filter technology. With advanced filter parameters like input gain, drive, acid, filter nonlinearities and up to 4 times oversampling you can get that “analog” sound from the filters!
- Rich Set of Effects: SynthMaster One features 11 different effect types: Distortion, LoFi, Ensemble, Phaser, 6 Band EQ, Compressor, Vocoder, Delay, Chorus, Tremolo, Reverb.
- Microtuning: SynthMaster One supports Scala tuning, so tuning can be set either for each preset or globally by loading from a Scala tuning file. SynthMaster One comes with 300+ scales ranging from 5 note equal tempered scales to 12 note alternate tuning scales.
- Preset Browser: SynthMaster One features a comprehensive preset browser with separate search criteria for instrument type, preset attributes, music style or preset author.

- Note-per-channel MIDI controllers (MPE)
- Ableton Link
