Sure is a nifty synth with a lot of variables to tweak!

Imo, it's one of the best on an ipad mini (not too cluttered). Also one of the easiest to launch and immediatly experiment with and make something that sounds halfway decent.

The sale is on because of an update which was pretty big: Audiobus support was added, as well as a sequencer and drum pads.

By far my favorite and most used synth on iOS. The new version makes it even better. The Pro purchase turns it into an extremely useful synth allowing you to save your sound edits and music projects. Pro version also allows transfer of the desktop libraries.

Had to pull the trigger on this since they added Audiobus support.

Hopefully this'll be the last synth I buy ... [just like after I bought, iMini, Magellan, Animoog, iMS20, etc ...].

Agree - noticed this last night as well.

Does anyone know when this sale expires? It's supposed to last three days, but I'm not sure when the price drop was triggered.

You need Wavemapper, Grain Science, and Audulous to round out your collection. Well, until the next batch of apps come out. An iphone version of Wavemapper was released for only 5 bucks, but I can't see it being very functional.

It's cramped, but pretty good - patches are compatible with both versions.

And don't forget that if you've got both of the iPhone/iPad versions, you can run them simultaneously on your iPad under Audiobus!

And back on topic: Alchemy is fantastic! Get it while on sale if you can.

Anybody want to recommend their favorite IAP packs?

Don't see where 3 days is listed as the sale period, but if that's the case, it should be ending soon.

I have been tracking Wavemapper and Grain Science, waiting for a sale ... both look awesome. I didn't know about Audulus but, after seeing it, that just got added as well.

I was told by either Audiobus or Camel, I forget now which. I doubt I'll buy any of the sound packs; it feels wierd for me to make music using other peoples' sounds, unless I sample them myself. Though, that's kind of the way Alchemy works.

Amyway, the sound packs aren't on sale so I'll hold off. I'm about to buy the pro-pack; I'm just trying to remember what it includes...I mean, I can use it in Audiobus without the pro-pack iirc...
