Augur-1 Synth

Augur-1 Synth


This emulates an 80s classic analogue mono synth, the emulator has dual voice or polyphonic with multitouch but that is not the default setting. It has dual oscillator, noise, lfo, mixer, filter and a pair of envelope generators. The app supports pressure sensitive touch screens, X/Y accelerometer for pitch and mod wheel, multitouch and zooming interface facilities. The interface has options for fat-finger, analogue filters and rich oscillators however these will consume extra CPU cycles. The interface also has a full piano keyboard setting.
There is an emulator 'Unison' switch which will play both voices on a single note to pad out the sound.

The synth has a step sequencer with output recording to WAV files and Ringtones/Notifications/Alerts.

Interface zooming can be done either with the trackball (Nexus/HTC have them) or enable multitouch via the menu then tap the screen with two fingers at the same time - this will zoom the interface in/out. If you tap with two fingers but keep them held you can move the screen around. This kind of helps out with the dense graphics.

Patches are saved on the SD card along with factory sounds, there is an export and import option to exchange patches.

The emulator will, per default, attempt to run with a set of options that will give reasonable quality and the lowest possible latency/lag. The quality of the audio can be tuned with the menu options however the lowest possible latency for pretty much all Android devices is currently 42ms, on my HTC Desire it is 70ms. If you understand what this means then the value might seem quite high but the app is still a lot of fun.

I wanted a good synth keyboard app But this isn't it ): Sucks cuz I can't get a refund. This app's volume is way too low and the keys don't funtion too well. Maybe if you made a more functional and integrated synth app(allow a free version for a sampled experience) I wud buy it. Til then ),:

Love it! myTouch 4g, no problem, Stefan... Press the trackball button once to zoom in, then slideto get around, press again to zoom out. Works great on my myTouch 4g. Latency can depend on available memory. If you have a lot of active apps, disable or foreclose before you run any synth for best results, not just Bristol.
