SynthScaper is one of a number of more experimental sound apps from iMusicAlbum. As with the other apps in this series like FieldScaper and SoundScaper, each update brings a range of new experimental possibilities for you. This version of SynthScaper supports loop points and note/pitch info in wav files that gives you possibility to use a lot of ready loops from third-party samples libraries.

What’s more it includes new scenes, presets and samples, which is always useful in my opinion, with having an idea of how things work inside an app, especially in more experimental apps. It also supports loop points and note info in wav files. A low pass ladder filter and low pass distortion filter have been added in this version, as have mode 12/24 db for LP, HP, BP, BS filters.
There’s now a parameter to “Smooth” for LP and HP filters, and also a new parameter “Drive” for BP and BS filters.

There’s a few more new bits and pieces, here’s a quick run down …

  • Addition working mode for envelope generator.
  • MIDI control for sustain pedal.
  • MIDI controls for changing scenes.
  • Improved pitch / modifier on screen keyboard.
  • Built-in description updated.

And of course, no update would be complete without the obligatory range of bugs being fixed.

SynthScaper is an unusual application that’s great if you’re into more experimental sounds. If that’s you, then you should probably also check out FieldScaper and SoundScaper too, as I think they might be right up your street too.

SynthScaper costs $14.99 on the app store now:
