  • I'm so glad this exists, and now it has proper ring modulation!

    By Korg Fan
    This thing costs six dollar, but it is GOD compared to Sunrizer and Magellan. It's like an Alesis Ion, but it is only monotimbral (unfortunately). Three oscillators, 6 LFOs, 9 EGs, 2 filters, and a flexible arpeggiator! Did I forget to mention that it also has two oscillator syncs and ring modulators? There are even unique things such as waeshapers, 8 bit waveforms, and FM is now a waveform. That's right, you have up to six operators of FM synthesis! Not only the specs are insane, but it sounds very modern and unique. It sounds so awesome and plays so awesome that I keep coming back to this app. The funny thing about this app is that it took about three years for someone to notice that the ring modulators were not working properly. The only one that noticed this problem was me. I thought the ring modulators were simply oscillator mixers until I contacted Cassini about the problem, and they figured out what caused it. Now I can use it properly! Also,
  • Audio unit?

    By Strizbiz
    Great since day one, the one thing I'd love to see is this as an audio unit for iOS, iaa and Audiobus are great features but imo audio unit on iOS is the future of audio production on the iPad, I hope to see all developers who embraced Audiobus and inter app audio get on the audio unit train too.
  • One of the best iOS synths out there

    By AvengerPod
    There are so many great iOS synths (such as Sunrizer for supersaw or Magellan for dual-layer patches or Thor for all your Reason patches or Animoog for poly aftertouch...) but I've made dozens (50+) of patches on Cassini because of its reasonably friendly user interface and its winning architecture: it's basically a subtractive synth with three oscillators (which can also be FM pairs), a programmable arpeggiator, and a delay. Layering saw/square/PWM/FM gives all sorts of great sound capabilities, and there are a bunch of LFOs and envelopes. Although you can do the most of this (and more, for example phase distortion and supersaws) with Thor, Cassini sounds great and is easy to use. It's one of my go-to synths on iOS that I keep coming back to. The arpeggiator makes it great to play live as well. My only complaint is having to buy it twice for iPad and iPhone - you'll really want it on both platforms so you can have it in your pocket. Oh, and I wish it accepted polyphonic aftertouch...
  • Needs Midi Learn

    By boldstandard
    This is one of the best sounding synths on the iPad. I love the aesthetic look and feel of the app. The one thing it really, desperately needs is a "Midi Learn" function. There are only 4 knobs that you can assign to be controlled by an external midi device, and they are stuck on fixed CC#s. For a synth with as many pages and parameters as this, *all* of the parameters really need to be assignable to your midi controller so you can have everything laid out in front of you in one place. Other than that I like it a lot.
  • sick!

    By Gs2501
    this app is sick!!! the best so far...and for the price it cannot get any better.
  • Well done!

    By kk100
    It's a versatile synth with lots of power and flexibility. 3 Osc, and multi LFOs, Envelopes etc. Excellent delay effect. My only demurs are small, the patch list always resets to the beginning as opposed to where you left off. The signal path could use some more complexity. Otherwise, very nice sounds and easy to use!
  • Unreal how cool

    By Aka monkey dope
    The guys from sonic state were right! This is one awesome synth! If you dig stuff like pulsing old school sequences and fat huge synth sounds that are all nested in the coolest interface ever ..!look no farther one of my personal favorites for sure! Peace christo
  • Such wonderful sounds...need octave buttons

    By Nitpick Pete
    Still one of my top fave iOS synths, but sure would be nice to be able to resize the on-screen keyboard and really need octave buttons on the main page. Otherwise, this is a very capable synth with deep programming options. Superior sounds and stability over many (most?) of the newer apps. Perhaps an overzealous nitpick, but the fifth star is pending main screen octave buttons.
  • Try this one

    By Least significant digit
    This is just a good solid synth. There are a lot of interesting and musical presets, and enough controls to make tweaking them fun and easy. There are no clcks or dropouts on my ipad3.
  • Sounds amazing, but lacks a large amount of features.

    By Anthony Birleffi
    Can you add in more Midi CC support for all the knobs, a midi learn feature would be nice. And MSB standard bank selection would be nice too!
