*** miniSynth is the FIRST and the ORIGINAL synthesizer for the iPhone and iPod Touch! Beware of impersonators! ***

***AS SEEN in Apple print ads and featured in the iTunes store (New & Noteworthy, What’s Hot)!***
*** Nominated for the 2008 and 2009 Best App Ever Awards ***
***Featured in iPhone Life magazine***

The original iPhone synthesizer is now in its 2.4, just happily out of college. With a tasteful set of tweaks here and there, including its shiny new slide-friendly keyboard, and platform-first ZERO LATENCY, it's here to muse and amuse. It retains both its original skin, and the battered '52-Tele one, switchable via Settings. Complete with a recording and playback module, an audio file browser and ability to export via Wi-Fi.

miniSynth has sounds and features that rival those of its flesh-and-blood (well.... transistor-and-wood) forbears. Just experiment with its two 6-octave oscillators and ultra retro filter to see what we mean: you'll be able to evoke sounds from Classic Rock to Electronica, and from Prog to New Wave just by moving a few sliders, or create unique voices of your own. From luscious booming bass sounds to shrill screeches, miniSynth won't disappoint.

-- Configurable skin (look for miniSynth under the device "Settings" app on the iPhone/iPod main screen)

To experience miniSynth's tone to the fullest, we suggest you plug in your stereo or headphones. Then beam me up, Scotty!
