Poison-202 giveaway – 5 copies of excellent compact iOS synth from JimAudio to be won

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.

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 if you are quick off the mark, then you can get yourself entered for a giveaway draw as Jim has very kindly provided me with 5 copies to giveaway to readers here at the Music App Blog….   See, Christmas might not be such a wash-out after all….  :-)

As usual with the giveaways I run on the blog, the deal is simple; get your name in the hat and see if it gets pulled out.

You can enter the draw in one of two ways.

  • First, if you just want to enter this draw, then use the Contact Us page to leave your details before 10 pm (GMT) on Friday, December 30th, 2016. Make sure to enter ‘Poison-202’ in the message subject line.
  • Alternatively, if you want to get included in this – and every future promo code giveaway run on the site – then sign up for the Music App Blog email list before the deadline. All members of the list will automatically be entered in every draw. You can sign up here and, as a bonus for signing up, you also get a copy of the Music App Blog’s ‘25 iOS music apps to get you started‘ guide. And if you are already signed up for the email newsletter, then consider yourself entered :-)

As soon as I can organise after entries close, I’ll draw a suitable number of names at random from all those entered. I’ll then notify the lucky winners by email and include the necessary promo code. I’ll also post a list of the winners here. If you are one of the lucky ones, do make sure to use the code ASAP – iTunes Redeem Codes generally have a relatively short life span once they have been issued.

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 a chance at a free copy, then get your name in the hat :-)
