“Really cool app. Is it good? YES!” – Nu-trix the Synth Guy

+ This app does not support IAA or Audiobus. But, you can use it in Audiobus 3 as an Audio Unit. Works great that way!

“You can turn a few knobs and make 808s that sound so good you could sell them in a sample pack!” – Casual Chris Youtube Review

This is a mono instrument. One is probably all you need. But, it can be stacked with AU hosts

Express yourself. Create your signature sound. Simple controls allow you to easily sculpt your own bass or kick sound.


What happens if I get a new iPhone or iPad?
The limited edition apps you have already acquired will remain in the app store so that you’ll always be able to download them as long as you have the same iTunes account.

What happens after the "app drop" release time is over?
The apps will remain in the App Store so that you may download updates. After the “app drop”, the price in the app store will go to the maximum price tier. As long as you keep the same iTunes account, you may download updates and copies to new devices for free!

Will the apps still be updated?
The apps will be updated for new iOS versions, to ensure that your limited edition apps continue to work as iOS technology progresses.

Will the apps support iPhone?
We will try to make most of these apps universal. We’re planning a free universal upgrade to the Bass 808 Synth. While the app is currently iPad only, an iPhone version is on the way and will be available while the app is still on sale.

Will there be open-source?
We plan on open-sourcing as much as we can. Some of the code developed for this app has already been added to AudioKit for all developers to use in their projects, free of charge.

Are you still working on your existing apps?
Yes! We are still working on improving all our apps, including Synth One, D1, and FM2. The technology developed as a part of these limited edition apps will help improve all our apps.
