Zeeon Synth updated – BeepStreet’s new iPad synth gets MIDI Learn

BeepStreet are perhaps best known for their Sunrizer synth app which has been around on the App Store for a long time and has a dedicated following amongst the long-standing iOS synth fanatics. They also offer the excellent Impaktor drum synth which perhaps doesn't have quite the profile it deserves. However, I posted a full review of their new Zeeon Synth app here on the blog a couple of weeks ago. Zeeon Synth is hugely impressive, offers a great analog vibe in both aesthetics and sound and … [Read more...]

Zeeon Synth review – BeepStreet’s a new iPad synth sounds great and includes AU support

BeepStreet are perhaps best known for their Sunrizer synth app which has been around on the App Store for a long time and has a dedicated following amongst the long-standing iOS synth fanatics. They also offer the excellent Impaktor drum synth which perhaps doesn't have quite the profile it deserves. This week, however, they have added a new app to their iOS catalogue and, yes, while it is another synth app (and, yes, we probably all have more of these that we actually need!), Zeeon Synth … [Read more...]

Zeeon Synth launched – BeepStreet add a new iPad synth to their iOS catalogue

Impaktor update – BeepStreet’s drum synthersizer gets 64-bit support

There are lots of brilliant iOS music apps available on the iTunes App Store that I've never quite got around to doing a fully-blown review of. BeepStreet's Impaktor is most certainly one of them. If you have not encountered this app before it is an interesting concept... BeepStreet are perhaps best known for their Sunrizer synth app but, like the obvious competition of Elastic Drums and DM2, Impaktor s a drum synthesizer. It features a pretty sophisticated synth engine featuring physical … [Read more...]

Sunrizer update – BeepStreet’s classic iOS synth gets the 64-bit treatment

I’ve reviewed lots of iOS synth apps on the site over the last five years but, given this is a category of iOS music apps that is so well served, there are also plenty I’ve yet to cover. Some of these have, over time, achieved a sort of 'classic' status and one app that (for me at least) fits into that category is BeepStreet’s Sunrizer. Sunrizer is a virtual analog synth and, in part at least, attempts to model what’s known as the ‘SuperSaw’ sound engine that first appeared in one of Roland’s … [Read more...]

Impaktor update – BeepStreet’s drum synthersizer gets to iOS8

There are lots of brilliant iOS music apps available on the iTunes App Store that I've never quite got around to doing a fully-blown review of. BeepStreet's Impaktor is most certainly one of them. If you have not encountered this app before it is an interesting concept... First and foremost it is a drum synthesizer featuring a pretty sophisticated synth engine featuring physical modelling, frequency modulation and noise shaping. The engine features two modulation sources with both velocity … [Read more...]

Sunrizer sale – BeepStreet’s classic iOS synth at a bargain price for a limited time

I reviewed the iPad version of BeepStreet's excellent iOS music app Sunrizer a few weeks ago when it was updated to v.3.2. Sunrizer is a brilliant synth app and, at the asking price of UK£6.99 is most certainly worth investing in. However, if you don't currently own the iPad version (or the iPhone version come to that), providing you are quick, you can get the app for just UK£1.99 (70% off) for a limited time. For those unfamiliar with Sunrizer, it is a virtual analog synth and, in part at … [Read more...]

Sunrizer update – BeepStreet’s classic iOS synth gets new features

I’ve reviewed lots of iOS synth apps on the site over the last couple of years but, given this is a category of iOS music apps that is so well served, there are also plenty I’ve yet to cover. Much to my shame, one of those is something of a ‘classic’ in iOS terms – BeepStreet’s Sunrizer – and while I’ve owned a copy of the app for a long time, I’ve never really dug into it in the detail it probably deserves. So, prompted by a significant update that arrived on the App Store today – bringing … [Read more...]
