Leisuresonic LLC, a media creation software

company, has announced SynthTronica, the spectral synthesizer for the iPad.

SynthTronica is now available via the Apple App Store.

"It was clear the day of the iPad's announcement on January 27, 2010 that the new

Apple tablet would be an incredibly powerful medium for musical instruments," said

Christopher Penrose, Concerned Parent (CEO) of Leisuresonic. "Development of

SynthTronica began on that very day, and continued for over a year before today's

release on the App Store. I am confident that the result is a rich and elegant

musical instrument accessible for the inexperienced and coveted by seasoned

electronic musicians."

SynthTronica takes unique advantage of the iPad's multitouch capabilities.

SynthTronica has a powerful multitouch filter which provides unprecedented

expressive control over sound in performance, and has the unique ability to sculpt

intricate, literally handmade, sounds. Multiple keyboard designs are available, each

with dynamic patterns allowing performers to easily explore dozens of different

musical scales.

At the heart of SynthTronica is an innovative sound synthesis engine which provides

unparalleled sonic possibilities when compared to other conventional synthesizers.

Not an off the shelf design, SynthTronica implements "Formant Distortion Synthesis",

an advanced spectral signal processing technology for providing varied, complex and

dynamic sound evolution. SynthTronica can represent complex rhythms, palpable vocal

sounds, analog filters, and a vast territory of new sonic textures all with its

powerful and generalized synthesis engine.

SynthTronica is now available for purchase at the Apple App Store at the

introductory price of (US) $4.99.
