Lorentz updated – iceWorks add AU support to their flexible iOS synth app

I reviewed Lorentz Polyphonic Synthesizer from developer iceWorks when it was first released. There is a lot to like about this synth. It combines a very easy price (currently UK£5.99/US$5.99) with equally easy programming and still manages to sound very good indeed. It also included Audiobus and IAA support from the off, a decent MIDI specification and Ableton Link support was added in an update about 12 months ago. The further update to the app arrived on the App Store today taking the app … [Read more...]

LORENTZ Polyphonic Synthesizer review – iceWorks create a programmable synth app for the iOS masses

As I posted a few days ago, iceWorks have just launched their new iOS synth app - LORENTZ Polyphonic Synthesizer – to join their existing iOS music app offering that include the resonator-based Laplace synth that I reviewed some time ago on the blog. Lorentz (can I ignore all those capital letters now please?) also includes a resonator-based element within its sound engine but, in the App Store blurb, iceWorks describe the app as a 'virtual analog polyphonic synth with resonator' so what we have … [Read more...]
