AudioKit FM Player 2 – iPad synth inspired by the classic DX7
AudioKit FM Player 2 is the all-new iPad synth inspired by the classic Yamaha DX series FM synthesizers.
AudioKit first hit the scene with their original release of FM Player in 2017 which quickly became hugely popular and garnered over 100 000 downloads. The all-new AudioKit FM Player 2 has been in the works for two years and introduces a variety of new features to the already popular iPad app.
The AudioKit FM Player 2 synth has been completely rewritten from the ground up in order to introduce a host of more modern features such as AUv3 and Ableton Link compatibility. They’ve added a revamped arpeggiator and step sequencer section, dual layers – with keyboard slip and morph settings and each with their own set of ADSR envelope settings, and a ton of effects – vintage stereo phase, vintage chorus, flanger, Amp simulator and much more.
Proceeds from sales are going towards developing open-source frameworks for other developers…
The FM Player 2 comes with over 150 presets, and the app uses a space-saving compression system to compress over 1Gigabyte of sounds into under 200mb to suit the mobile form-factor. Owners of the original version can upgrade for free, and they’re running a promotion up until 15 August 2019 you can grab it for USD $1.
The project is open-source, that means all of the code is available to anyone who wants to learn from it, and all the proceeds from sales of the FM Player 2 will go to supporting the development of AudioKit’s open-source iOS and Mac Frameworks, Libraries and more. All of which will be made available to other developers, students and musicians for free.
