chris1a, have you had a chance to try out Magellan? I'm tempted, but really want to know what separates it (sound-wise) from the others out there.

Yea I've tried it very briefly. It definatly sounds good and is up there with Addictive, Sunrizer etc (might just be all the effect heavy sounds tho. What separates it is having two synth engines either running separately or at the same time, and the way you can interact with it. Standard keyboard or touchpad ala Animoog (or both) with a bunch of different scales, running arp and/or a full pattern sequencer. Plus a big x/y pad. So it's alot of fun to use and is def designed for a touchscreen so it's easy to get some cool stuff recorded. Dunno if it's really a must-have for the sounds if you have Sunrizer and so on, but it is an intro price so if 4.99 doesn't brake ur wallet I'd get it.

SpaceWiz synth by Wizdom out ($9.99). Looks just as crazy as their other stuff.

Animoog just received an updated:
Quote:
• Preset Categories
• MIDI CC Mapping
• Recording time is doubled
• MIDI OUT available as an in-app purchase
• ACOUSTIC and METALLIC expansion packs added to Animoog Store

fixed a bug that caused Animoog 1.0.4 to crash on older iOS versions.
And NanoStudio price reduced to just $7.99 (cheapest in 2 years!)

Don't update your Animoog just yet. There's a bug that affects at least the iPad version and it will just show the splash screen and crash back to the homescreen. Could be related to either IAP or custom presets. Either way wait!

Yep. Already updated Animoog and fails to load. The app description now says I need to uninstall and reinstall to fix. I'll need to find my Luftrum soundset before I do anything which should still be on my local hard drive.

I looked more into Magellan and looks/sounds GREAT! Already having several of the other analog synths out there I have become wary of purchasing yet another one, but this one DOES seem to have some unique things and a different kind of sound to it.

Here are some videos

Has some 70's Tangerine Dream feel to some of the sounds.

I had me a crash first time after the update but then it ran fine
