NLog MIDI Synth details

Professional Virtual Analogue Synth supporting Line6' Midi Mobilizer interface

This app is an extended version of the famous "NLog Synthesizer" app providing external access from MIDI keyboards or other MIDI controller. The synth engine has been rewritten to provide polyphonic realtime response. Now you have a real synthesizer out of your IOS device which you can play with your keyboards. A MIDI interface is needed to operate with external keyboards. This version supports Line6's Midi Mobilizer. Other interfaces like Akai's Synthstation will be supported in future updates once they become available. The app is also usable without MIDI interface with on-screen keyboard.

...sounds like I'd be able to plug my tenori-on into my iPad....hmmmm....might have to invest in this app! are there any other MIDI enabled synth apps out there at the moment, or is this a first?

ashley said...

No there are others, I will be doing a list of line 6 compatible apps soon though.

Midi in doesn't really interest me in an app with such limited recording functionality.

Unless you use this live a lot...

My understanding is that the MIDI out from a sequencer app is really difficult. CoreMIDI in 4.2 might help?

I bought the App and the Midi Mobilizer. Really incredible so far. I've been running VST synths for years on my laptop. Will be trying my iPod in my 80s rock band now. Makes for a great replacement when you play shows that you have 10 minutes to move your gear, and a laptop isn't suitable. Very handy that you can put your iPhone on top of your keyboard, no stand needed, boots quick, etc.

I made a reasonable recreation of the OB-X sweep sound Rush uses for Tom Sawyer, and will be testing on stage in front of 200 people this weekend.

I hope NLog offers a site to exchanges sounds with other users.

Does anyone know where to get more sounds for NLog?

Also can recommend BS-16i. That is great too. I have a collection of SoundFonts from years ago, and I now have a portable grand piano and other lots of other sampled instruments.

Any other decent Apps I should know about?

I hope other Apps I bought add Midi Mobilizer support. I bought Pocket Organ, Argon analog synth (excellent), Ellatron Mellotron, MiniSynth (not too impressed), Wivi Band and other apps.

Moog Music recently made their first App (Filtatron), and it would be awesome if they made a MiniMoog App.

With any luck, there will be VST type of Apps made in the future.
