Mitosynth update – hybrid iOS synth from Wooji Juice Ltd gets further refinements

Download from iTunes App StoreMitosynth logoWooji Juice’s Mitosynth iOS music app has been with us for a couple of years now. I was very impressed with the app when I reviewed it just after it was released. Mitosynth looked great, sounded great (especially if you are into sound design and sound textures) and played nicely with other iOS music apps via Audiobus.

It also provides a novel set of sound design tools that, while easy to use, provide a tremendous amount of flexibility for the keen programmer. It might not be my recommendation as a first ‘serious’ iOS synth app for the newbie iOS musician but if you are already a die-hard iOS synth app fan, it is well worth adding to your sonic arsenal. And, at the current UK£10.99/US$14.99 asking price, it is a heck of a lot of synth for a very modest outlay.

The Mitosynth interface is very stylish... and now comes with a new 'Painter' mode in the wave Chamber.

The app has received regular updates since release. Back in March it was updated to provide some performance enhancements and to make use of the full iPad Pro screen (on which it looks fabulous). However, a further update – taking the app to v.1.2.8 – has arrived on the App Store today. This apparently adds some improvements to the app’s MIDI performance but it also brings some new instrument patches. Mitosynth now includes a very healthy set of preset sounds so, even if you didn’t want to get too involved in programming your own, there are plenty of presets you can use as starting points for some further tweaking.

Mitosynth really is an interesting iOS music app and, for those that are prepared to get stuck into some sound creation for themselves, Mitosynth has a heck of a lot to offer. If you are prepared for that journey into sound creation, Mitosynth is an excellent choice and well worth a place on the iPad (or iPhone; the app is universal) of any synth-head.
