Back to the iOS Synth

March 6, 2014

So, I’ve tried playing this synth, essentially unaltered since June 2012 aside from a bit of iCloud-related code, in a jam session.  The results were mixed, and it only confirmed the old flaws I’ve known about since 2011.  Since that jam, I’ve been coming back to this app, and progress on it has picked up once again.  I am now in the process of tidying up the design, placing all the main features where they need to go, while doing some cosmetic work.  The slightly more technical stuff I still need to tackle include:

1.  Using iCloud synced files to actually create and retrieve synthesizer settings.

2.  Adding back the “create your own waveform” platform.  This platform is the reason the synth is called a Fourier series or “drawing synth” synth.

3.  Working on the tuning with three oscillators in play.  The highest oscillator seems to be out of tune a bit and it’s not by design.

4.  Fixing knobs and graphics.

If all goes well, the app could be released this spring, but I expect it to be more like fall 2014…. : )
