For digital musicians, the Geo Synthesizer may be the iPad’s best secret. Virtual devices have a lot of sound samples, so you’ll be able to create music directly by hooking up to your favorite VST, but what really makes Geo Synthesizer awesome is the play. The strings are inserted into a grid with motifs, musicians can slide from note to slide up and down and apply vibrato with quick and backward moving like a real guitar string game.
Geo Synthesizer Features:
- Unique game service
- 40 preview samples
- Ability to load waveforms from SampleWiz
- Legato mode with single note and single string and polyphonic mode
- “Threat” bar on the screen
- MIDI output
Geo Synthesizer Review:
The layout of the Geo Synthesizer is similar to that of Linstrastrum, a new MIDI controller designed by the legendary Roger Lynn. They both use the same string core along a grid of patterns similar to a guitar layout, and they both allow you to control your finger slide and ‘string’ slide pitch turning. This makes it an instrument that makes it easy to pick and play for both the keyboard and the guitar.
Samples with Geo Synthesizer are enough to get you started and a recent update allows you to use presets from Geo Synthesizer Sample Wiz. And this is great for creating music while on the go, but one of the best features of Geo Synthesizer is the ability to transmit MIDI out and control your music workstation or favorite VST.
The Geo Synthesizer has the ability to transmit between multiple MIDI channels. And if you sync Geo Synthesizer’s pitch band range with your software, you’ll be able to extract the same control from your own words as you can from the app’s sample. This would be a great addition to a music studio.
Another nice feature is the ability to compact the playground You can increase both the number of rows and the width of the buttons, it is easily going to go from two to three to four octaves. The app also includes built-in reverb and extras such as an on-screen pretense bar.
A major failure of the geo synthesizer is the inability to detect velocity. Obviously, this is a limitation of using the iPad as a playground, but it can be hard to overcome for those who are trying to squeeze a subtle sound from the device. However, for speed-neutral use, the geo synthesizer can create a fantastic playing surface.
You can download Geo Synthesizer from the App Store. It currently sells for 9. 9.99, which can be expensive in terms of apps, but it’s quite cheap in the case of MIDI controllers.
