VoxSyn giveaway results – three winners of VirSyn’s iOS vocoder app

Download from iTunes App Storevoxsyn logo 1VirSyn will be well known to the majority of computer-based musicians whether you work on the desktop or a mobile platform such as iOS. The company have an extensive portfolio of iOS music apps covering a number of different synths, audio effects and a dedicated arpeggiator app.

Many of these apps are iOS-sized ports of VirSyn’s desktop virtual instruments and effects and I’ve reviewed a good number of them here on the blog over the last three years or so. VirSyn newest addition to this impressive catalogue is VoxSyn, which I reviewed just a couple of weeks or so ago. In their website’s blurb, this is described as a ‘voice controlled synthesizer for iPad and iPhone’. At first glance, that might well say ‘vocoder’ to most readers and, in essence, that’s a pretty reasonable first stab at VoxSyn. However, VirSyn see VoxSyn as something just a bit more than a traditional vocoder effect and, given the rather interesting touchscreen interface (described in the full review) and pitch control options, it certainly doesn’t look like a ‘me too!’ vocoder :-)

VoxSyn is a universal app and, for a limited time only, is available at an introductory price of just UK£4.99/US$6.99. It requires iOS7.0 or later and is a 32MB download. Auidiobus and IAA support are included from the off, as is support for Core and Virtual MIDI. And while most users will probably use the app via the Audiobus/IAA route, it does also include its own recording facility with options for sharing or exporting any audio recordings made. The app also links rather cleverly with Tera Synth allowing you to import Tera Synth patches to VoxSyn.

Anyway, Harry Gohs at VirSyn was been kind enough to provide me with three copies of this new app to giveaway as part of the summer giveaway extravaganza….  The draw closed yesterday and the winning names were drawn out of the hat this morning…. And the winners are…..

All the winners have now been sent an email with the details of how to get hold of their free copy. 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 :-)

VoxSyn - no obvious visual changes in the first update but note that it is using a preset imported from Tera Synth :-)

I think VoxSyn is a pretty cool app. Whether you are into weird soundscapes, odd noises, cutting-edge EDM or sugary pop/dance tunes, VoxSyn could do a turn. The most obvious role is as a ‘vocal-meets-synth’ device for creating electronic/artificial sounding vocal parts and, even if you can’t sing particularly well, providing you are happy to use synthesised vocals, VoxSyn offers a huge range of vocal options. Others will, of course, use the app for much more that artificial vocal parts….

And, of course, at the launch price of just UK£4.99/US$6.99, it is unlikely to leave you with too big a hole in your pocket even if you acquire it for just occasional use. Check out the full review of VoxSyn for the details and then hit the download button to find out more…   :-)
