Synthesizer Express for the iPhone

A new analogue synth for the iPhone. Here's the description:

"Synthesizer express" is a virtual analog synthesizer, includes arpeggiator,portamento and more!

88-key keyboard.

1 oscillator + 1 sub oscillator with 5 waveforms.

1 LFO(Low-frequency oscillation) with 5 waveforms modulates VCA(amplitude) or VCF(filter frequency).

ADSR envelopes modulate VCA and VCF. Attack time is the time taken for initial run-up of level from nil to peak. Decay time is the time taken for the subsequent run down from the attack level to the designated sustain level. Sustain level is the amplitude of the sound during the main sequence of its duration. Release time is the time taken for the sound to decay from the sustain level to zero after the key is released.

Control Pitch,Cut off frequency,LFO depth and LFO frequency with Accelerometer.

I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has tried this out. I bought a couple of the developers previous apps but was disappointed in the sounds so I don't want to jump in an buy this only to get the same result.

The feedback I've had so far is that it is good that it only cost £0.59 ($0.99) etc. So if you've been disappointed with the dev's previous apps I wouldn't go for it.

Shame really, as it is always nice to see a new synth emerge.

I bought it and spent a little time playing with it last night. My initial impression was that it was OK but I was getting some clicks with some of the settings ... I hate clicks. But .... for $0.99 it's kinda fun to play around with for a bit but not something I see using in any mixes.

It's the best synth so far for me. I have played hours and hours with it playing along with my iPod music. (and I'm still with it pretty much every day) There's no other free synth for the iPod that let's you do that.(sadly) Sounds may just sound OK at fisrt but the ADSR settings can get to a greater performance if you happen to get the touch with practice, you can get really great bass sounds with this, and the filter control by tilting is awesome. Also in the paid version you'll find endless ways with the LFO frequency parameter.
I really think this synth remains unveiled.

The only thing that is very dissapoint for me is that you got no way to bring your sounds to your desktop, it got a recorder but as much as I know is quite useless.
