Mitosynth update – hybrid iOS synth from Wooji Juice Ltd gets further fine-tuning

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£14.99/US$14.99 asking price, it is a heck of a lot of synth for a pretty 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 September an update added ‘iOS10 compatibility’. Anyway, a further technical update appeared on the App Store a couple of days ago. This new version – v.1.2.12 – brings some further tweaks for Bluetooth compatibility and also for iOS10.3. Nothing new perhaps added but it is always good to see these sorts of fine-tuning in a favourite app.

Mitosynth’s Pads screen provides four X/Y pads and you can link synth parameters to these for real-time sound modulation.

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.
