KQ MiniSynth

Ryouta Kira
KQ MiniSynth is a powerful polyphonic modular synthesizer.
This app lets you create tones with module patching.

(Oscillators, Envelope Generators, Filters, and so on)
Of course it depends on your device's ability.

Modular system is also good for education use.
You can learn the role of various modules while patching those.

The Patch-Editing view supports zooming.
You can connect modules with taps easily.

70 Presets are included.
External and Virtual MIDI is Supported.
MIDI over Bluetooth LE is Supported (Act as a Central device).
Inter-App Audio is Supported.
Audiobus is Supported.
Ableton Link integration.
Includes an Audio Unit Extension (AUv3 Instrument).

FAQ:
Q: The output sounds too quiet.
A: Expression value(Ctrl #11) may be too small. Try to Tap "RESET" on I/O Panel. When it is not improved, try to change an option "Boost Velocities".

Q: The velocities seem to be ignored on Audio Unit.
A: If you want to enable the note velocity function in Audio Unit, try to turn off "Ignore Velocities" in the settings. (The default is on because GarageBand sends velocities randomly.)

Q. I want to customize the software keyboard.
A. A gear appears when you drag the upper part of the keyboard. Try to tap it with another finger.
