Scythe for iPhone

Bitmask Studio Ltd.
Scythe for iPhone brings the powerful synthesis engine of Scythe to the iPhone.

Scythe: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/scythe-synthesizer/id1278439277?mt=8

It has a powerful synthesis engine and makes it easy to create and discover sound designed.

The wavetable creator enables the creation and editing of wavetables and is integrated directly into the system to preview your creations with the current session status. You can override the oscillator to see how your creation mixes with your session's sound.

The controls have been minimized to allow a simple workflow with the same complex modulation that you might be used to. If you are new to modulation, Scythe app for iOS makes it simple with drag and drop, from source to oscillator control.

Now with CoreMIDI and Audiobus Midi input and Inter-App-Audio, Scythe synth can be integrated into your studio or workflow.

Scythe synthesizer comes with presets and library wavetables for quickly hearing some of its possibilities.

AudioShare allows easy importing and exporting of audio with Scythe.

Generate custom wavetables by importing your sounds using AudioShare or iTunes file sharing, record using IAA out or directly in Scythe synthesizer and export using Audioshare or iOS sharing options.

Please note for best wavetable generation results, sounds with low frequency content or enough spectral content is required.
