Enkl is a new mono synth for your iPad

A new mono synth for your iPad ... Enkl has a very intriguing design style. Here's the app's description:

This fully featured monophonic synthesizer can create a huge variety of sounds. Fat basses, stabby leads, glitchy noises, old style chip tune sounds (including arpeggios), weird percussion, you name it. Enkl does the job!

Enkl comes with 93 high quality factory presets, all crafted by professional music producers. Of course it is possible to create new ones and save.

The Extended Keyboard makes Enkl really fun to play in standalone mode, choose scale, key and hit it off!

With Inter App Audio, AudioBus and MIDI support it’s easy to connect the app to other DAW apps, MIDI generator apps or external devices.

When it comes to MIDI, Enkl supports both MIDI IN and MIDI OUT. It’s even possible to play other MIDI compatible instruments with the Extended Keyboard.

Noteworthy features:
  • Realtime rendered audio - no samples involved
  • Two separate oscillators with separate LFO’s
  • Oscillators can generate Triangle, Sawtooth, Square or Noise waveforms
  • Oscillators can be summed or multiplied together
  • Each LFO has its own ADSR and modulates its oscillator’s pitch or volume
  • High cut and low cut filter with resonance (also controllable via MIDI)
  • Chiptune-style arpeggiator
  • Legato mode
  • Ping-pong delay as a post effect
  • Three band EQ as a post effect

The iOS synth market is way oversaturated at this point. Doesn't seem like this synth brings anything new to the table.
