Developer Bram Bos has introduced Hilda Synthesizer for iOS, a synth that inspired by the most interesting aspects of both West Coast and East Coast synthesis.
It features a wave folder, lowpass gate, and audio-rate modulations, but also a 12-mode filter and traditional VCA circuit.
Bos says that all parts of the instrument are carefully circuit-modeled to sound as analog (or digital, where applicable) as possible. Here’s a video intro, via Gavinski’s Tutorials:
- Full Audio Unit compatibility (AUv3 instrument, audio effect and MIDI processor modes supported)
- Universal design (iPhone and iPad; iPad Air 2 or higher recommended)
- Built-in analog style 16 Step MIDI Sequencer with custom scale
- 12 mode filter, based on the Oberheim Xpander design
- Drone mode lets you [partially] bypass the VCA/LPG and just go with the flow
- DIY Lo-Fi delay circuit emulation
- Live pads with effects that can be triggered via the UI (or via exposed AU Parameters)
- All synth settings exposed a AU Parameters (for automation and MIDI learning in your host of choice)
- MIDI Processor plugin mode disables synth to save CPU
