I'll be picking this up later...will leave impressions. It's considered one of the "essential synths", like Cassini, Sunrizer, etc.

IMO it's one of my favorites, one of those i use the most, because of the compatibility, flexibility, stability.. I use it in a lot of songs, still now, since the beginning. I like the ability to use two synth at the same time, and presets are good.

And it use less CPU than korg apps, i think. Easy to use with audiobus.

Sorry for my bad english.

Just bought it. Holy hell, a lot has been added since the last time I checked this out. This is one POWERFUL synth/post processor. Lemme say, you get a LOT for 7 bucks... Probably at least 500 bucks worth of physical hardware.

I have the iPhone version and I LOVE that you can use the effects with any other app through Audiobus. I'm curious if the iPad version has any extras or if it is just iPad comparable and nothing else.

Aha, so it looks like the iPad version has 2 full analog synths to talking 6 ocilators instead of one and three. Bought!!!

Thanks for the update Greyskull!

I'll have to pull the trigger on this one as well.

How do you think this compares to Addictive? The only synth I have currently is the Korg iMS-20 so I'm looking to grab a few more ...

It's one hell of a synth, and another case where if you have the iPhone and iPad versions, you can run them both at the same time in Audiobus!

Primozz, to be honest, I've been so busy I haven't booted Addictive up yet...Add in the promo codes I've been getting (Vio, Nanostudio), updates which suddenly allow me to use previously iphone only apps on my ipad (Guitarism for example), and all the audiobus updates...I need to figure how I'm going to link Polysix/IMini/iMs-20/Molten/Thumbjam/Vio/Figure/Magellan/Nano/Dm-1/Rhythm Studio/GrainScience/SpaceSampler/Overdub....:catches breath:..

Um, I'll get back to you on that. Oh, there's a dedicated ios music forum now, ios Music Community set up by @iClifDotMe (twitter). I'll be splitting my time between this site and that one.
