Poison-202 giveaway results – 5 winners of excellent compact iOS synth from JimAudio

Download from iTunes App Storepoison-202-logo-1As I tried (and probably failed) to summarise a while ago in my synth app roundup, there are a large number of very good iOS synth app available to us users. The list keeps growing as well and one recent addition that’s well worth paying attention to is Poison-202 which I reviewed on the blog just after it was released in September…..   and also made it into my personal ‘top 10 iOS music apps of 2016‘ list a few days ago.

Poison-202 is a vintage-style iOS synth, inspired by some of the classic synths from the 80s and 90s, paying homage to the synth sounds found on tracks from The Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Kraftwerk and Daft Punk amongst others. The app arrived with universal support, IAA and MIDI included (although the latter was perhaps not as fully-featured as on some iOS synth apps) and AU support was added in v.1.1 which appeared in mid-October. This was quite a big deal and certainly broadens the appeal of the app for those iOS musicians who really want to transition to an AU-based approach for between-app connectivity.

Poison-202 - a compact synth that packs a punch well above its price tag.

Anyway, if the novelty sock you found under the tree don’t quite cut it, then Poison-202 would make for a great ‘present to me’….  and, as Jim was very kind enough to provided me with 5 copies to giveaway to readers here at the Music App Blog, a late Christmas surprise will, I’m sure, be very welcome.

The draw closed yesterday and the winning names were pulled out of the hat this morning….. and the winners are:-

Greg Bear

Bryan Wicks

Charles Castillo

Jonathan Barker

Bjorn Malmehed

All the winners have now been sent an email with the details of how to get hold of their prizes. Incidentally, if you do appear as a winner in one of these giveaways and you don’t seem to have seen an email from me with the promo code details, then do make sure you check in your junk, trash or spam folders just in case your email system has ‘filed’ the message there :-)

Oh, and if you want to make sure you are entered for all the promo code giveaways that I run through the Music App Blog, then get yourself on the email newsletter list – and pick up your copy of our free ’25 apps’ guide :-)

Poison-202 now includes both default MIDI CC mapping and a MIDI Learn system... as shown here for the Pitch parameter that is flashing blue :-)

If your synth app collection already includes rather too many of the usual suspects, then perhaps Poison-202 will not offer you something you don’t already have covered. However, if you are still building a collection of iOS music apps – synths included – this is most certainly one to audition. It’s a great design that offers some great sounds and is pretty easy to find your way around. As an introduction to synth programming, it would have enough options to keep you happy for a while yet not be too difficult to get started with.

And, of course, let’s not ignore the price. At just UK£7.99/US$9.99, for many folk (i.e. people who can afford an iPad or iPhone in the first place), this might well represent a casual purchase; pass on the coffee/pastry combo for a couple of days and treat yourself to a very good iOS synth instead. Anyway, check out the original full review of Poison-202, the demo video below and then hit the download button to find out more…..  and, for the lucky winners this time around….  enjoy the app :-)
