More details on miniSynth Pro

Full details of Yonac's new synth app for the iPad:

Yonac Software is pleased to announce the release of the miniSynth PRO for the iPad. Conceived and designed by the same team behind the original synth and the theremin for the iPhone OS, miniSynth is a completely new, cutting-edge sound engine crafted especially for the powerful iPad platform.

miniSynth PRO is a fully-featured, professional-grade virtual analogue synthesizer. It incorporates an improved version of the time proven zero latency "push-pull" Yonac keyboard algorithm that powers our pre-existing synthesizers, and features a highly customized version of our original analogue-clone "Vincent" tone shaping filter. More importantly, it marks the debut of our brand new YASSE (pronounced "Yah-See") modular sound sequencing and synthesis engine, developed in our labs over the last three years.

As a step up on its predecessors, miniSynth PRO is designed as an FM / Subtractive hybrid synth. Among other innovations, it features our patented Vari-wave™ dynamic waveform selection algorithm, individually parameterized voice processing, and carefully selected waveforms driving its dual interactive oscillators and its five-destination LFO.

miniSynth PRO offers many other features to render music making easier. They include a dedicated arpeggiator module, dual individually adjustable keyboards, user control matrix, and 82 presets designed by actual musicians. Users are able to record their own performances, as well as save and recall any number of their own presets in the brand-new YPAT patch design format.

miniSynth PRO will be available for the opening of the iPad iTunes Store.

I will probably buy an iPad just for this app. It is pretty awesome.
