Bleep!Synth Review


(Click the pic for its website)

One day I need to play some chords with arp and S/H modulations in my band. I've got the ipod that day and instantly bought Bleep!Synth. Programmed a few sounds and used in the rehearsal and I'd say that I am impressed.

The synth engine is pretty standard and allaround. Not as fat as a moog and not as extreme as a deMOON, but really nice and useable. Character is towards digital, which is great, because a dabbler analog simulation won't make any sense.

The real highlight is the ability to customize the matrix "keyboard", this is way better than fake piano keys. And the "motion" feature - it is sort of an automation function - you tap any synth parameter and you have a 16 steps seq for it. This reminds me a lot of Elektron stuff. This design is useful, easy and fun.

I want to suggest a few features, which could be very useful:
1) organize patches in folders;
2) up/down keys on the "play" page to scroll through patches in the current folder;

So I can take all the patches needed in one folder and scroll through them during live.

An overall great synth, totally worth 8$.
