Tera Synth updated – tweaks and new features for VirSyn’s Tera

Download from iTunes App Storetera synth logoVirSyn make some great iOS music apps…  While the current fuss amongst iOS musicians might well be about their latest release – Addictive Pro, which was updated today – top of the VirSyn tree is probably Tera Synth which I reviewed some time ago. This is a hugely impressive iPad-only synth. It is deep while remaining fairly easy to program and sounds very good indeed.

VirSyn’s iOS development team are obviously hard at work though….  as well as the Addictive Pro update, Tera Synth has also been updated today with v.1.4.0 arriving on the App Store. VirSyn have added multi-channel support to the MIDI Learn feature in Tera (as done with a couple of their other apps recently).

Tera Synth includes a full MIDI Learn facility allowing external control of the app.

Equally, they have made some refinements to both the distortion and delay effects to improve the performance and sound quality. The MIDI sync has also been refined for improved performance while IAA-based tempo sync has been added. I’ve given this a quick workout within Cubasis this morning and it seems to be working well. There is no sign yet of Ableton Link support but, as that has just been added to Addictive Pro, I can only assume it will just be a matter of time before it also appears in Tera….

The app now also includes IAA-based tempo sync and this worked well for me in testing via Cubasis.

If you are not familiar with Tera Synth, then do check out the original Tera Synth review here. It is a very cool synth app with a distinctive sound….  It requires iOS7.0 or later, runs on an iPad and is just a 34MB download. And it is fully deserving of its UK£14.99/US$19.99 pricing; this is a top-notch iOS synth app and well worth exploring.

    1. With the release of the new IOS 10, the applications also need updates to make the apps compatible withe the new iPhone 7. Some application either crash or freeze after they are installed in IOS 10 because they are not compatible with IOS 10. It is nice to know that new updates are released for Addictive Pro. In Addictive Pro app, the improvement of the sound quality and performance is a great addition. Thanks for sharing the news about the new updates.
