Pure Synth® Platinum is a full-blown rompler/synthesizer for your iOS device. Neither the synth engine or the sample engine is an afterthought: Both engines are fully capable and feature-rich. The romper section contains a well rounded assortment of analog, synth, string, digital, and acoustic instruments. The beauty of Pure Synth® is the ability to mix between the two worlds of analog and sample based instruments. From rich and warm pianos, to lush strings and articulated woodwind sounds, your thirst for real world instruments will be quenched. This is probably one of the most extensive, feature-rich, and preset laden plugins you can get for iOS device. PS: We also have an affinity for 80’s and 90’s digital synths, so look for your favorite old school sounds in there as well.

Coming off the heels of BASSalicious 2, these guys have delivered again in a MAJOR way. If you are a church keyboardist this app is A MUST . I’ve used SampleTank (which I still love) on stage for about a year and a half, as of tomorrow I will officially be switching to Pure Synth. For the introductory price of 9.99 and even the full price of 19.99 It simply cannot be beat. Jamal and the crew at Gospel Musicians have a special anointing of not only be great musicians, but great craftsmen. These apps are an absolute blessing. Thank you guys for your hard work and dedication. Your work makes life easier for the rest of us.
This app has superior sounds in clear sounds that you can put in your composition and also it gives you plug-ins within the app to tweak your sounds best bang for your buck
Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely Love this Synth/SamplePlayer/Layering Keyboard! But, I get more latency than with my other IOS Keyboard Apps. I see no Latency adjustment on here. Please tell me where it is, or put one on there. Otherwise, this is one of the best I have. And, I have a hundred or so Keyboard/Synth Apps. Very competitive with Sampletank and Syntronic Layering Synths.
I’ve been putting off purchasing this synth and pulled the trigger to take advantage of the sale price. There are lots of really nice presets. Some are very inspiring and I was looking for something on IOS that was similar to Omnisphere that I ran on my PC setup. However, most of the patches have an unnecessarily large amount of reverb and I find myself having to lower the amount of reverb for each patch. This synth is really resource intensive. Glad its an AUv instrument but you can forget about loading more than a few instances of this without having to freeze your other tracks. Trying to run a 3rd instance in Cubasis on a 12.9 IPAD pro 2018 and its snap crackle pop all day. I don’t like that you cannot “remove” an effect from the effects rack once you’ve added it. Sure you can turn if off but its still in the rack. If there’s a way to remove it then it must be a hidden feature as I’ve tried the obvious like swiping right to left. Also would be nice if one could lock the effect units on the rack so they don’t move around while trying to adjust the settings as its quite easy to do since the app allows you to reorder them by flicking them around. Overall I’m pleased with the sounds on this synth and will probably give it a shot in my production work but I wish they would tone down the effects on the patches and optimize the performance of this synth as the most powerful IPAD cannot run that many instances. I even experienced some crackle when using one instance in standalone mode and enabling the spring reverb which seems extremely resource hungry.
This synth truly is amazing. I love the fact that I can dial-in the exact frequencies in both the modulation and the LFO! I also love the sounds. I am already using this in my productions, I will buy all the apps from this company instantly. Great job, this is far beyond worth the value for the price!
(1st generation iPad Pro on iOS 12.3.1) Pure Synth Platinum 2 keyboard is all but useless. There isn’t an octave adjustment and I gather the little square with the zero inside would, if it was completed, show the selected octave. No note latching. No mod control. No pitch control. No key size adjustment. As an AUv3, the full screen size requires sliding the app up and down to see everything and since synth screens are usually filled pretty full, making finding a ‘safe’ touch location challenging to find. Keyboard should be able to be slid up and down to uncover controls it’s on top of. It makes more sense to use a long touch to open a control’s Menu and a double-touch to set the control to zero or a normal starting value Installing the 4 extra packs were problematical. The first time the download didn’t want to start and the App crashed. Deleted and reloaded App. Tried downloading the first pack again. App crashed again. Cancel download wasn’t working. Removed app. Without the app installed. The first download pack started downloading. Loaded PSP2 again. This time I could cancel the download though. Waited about 5-6 minutes until it finally did cancel. Cycled power twice on my device. Reinstalled app and successfully installed all four packs without incident. Took not quite 5.9GB. Several tabs under the Settings screen are now gone, one being Audio? The virtual keyboards are a problem. The built in one, the App screen will scroll completely above it but only from where the App’s virtual keyboard sits though. We need to be able to move the keyboard up or down like iVCS3 can. That doesn’t work with AUM’s virtual keyboard. You can’t scroll up high enough to to access the bottom of the Control screen. With jockeying the windows location and size, I was able to get the AUM keyboard and PSP2 to play nicely together and scroll up to access the very bottom of the App’s screen. The downside of using the full screen AUv3 and scrolling around the UI, is that you frequently can’t make simultaneous adjustments when one control is off screen. The biggest downside that I see with Pure Synth Platinum 2 is that it doesn’t seem to have a personality. It seems like just a bunch of things that were thrown together. Nothing actually matched together for an overall unique experience (eg Poison 202, Spacecraft, WaveSHAPER Pro, OuttBass, LayR, Magellan to name a few). PSP is inconsistent when using AUM’s virtual keyboard with it’s key latching capability. With samples, changing to another one, the latched note/s are released, making checking samples extremely laborious. Adjusting various settings in PSP2 caused AUM’s latched key/s to be released. What are the unlabeled controls Under Attack and Decay sliders? Inconsistent labeling under Amp and Filt; Decay/Dec and Sustain/SusI if you can fit the label Control, you could fit Filter instead of Filt. Inconsistencies are symptomatic of poor company/dept organization. That all said, the prefab sounds sound wonderful. And setting a control to zero (or any value) is waaaay easier in PSP2 than 98% of the other synth app’s. I’ve never seen a synth with a ‘pitch’ wheel module and a mod wheel module before but it still makes sense to put those two wheels on the keyboard for ease of access. Then to have the pitch wheel in the bottom left and the Mod wheel in the upper right?? That just doesn’t make a lot of sense. The other aspects that could stand improving would be to add non-standard wave forms for the LFO. With 4 Oscillators, 4 Amp envelopes, 4 Filter envelopes and 4 Control sections with separate pitch controls YET PSP2 only has 1 LFO?! Why hamstring it? Why not 4? Here’s the rating killer. NO MANUAL OR DOCUMENTATION NOR IN APP HELP! And videos are not documentation. (You can’t search videos for answers like you can a PDF for one.)
Thanks Jamal you know exactly what we want. I just wish other companies took something from your playbook. We need more musicians who have programming skills to do what you do. I don’t normally write reviews but boy if you made a hardware performance workstation I would be interested. Good job keep up the good work. And blessings to you. This is sure worth more money than you guys are asking. Just did a reggae bubble with this. Yes it’s good for all types of music even Caribbean
I bought this in the Amun’s 2019 intro promotion. Quite frankly, the first time I ran it, it drove me crazy (2019 iPad Air) with glitches and dropouts on some sounds. Then I closed a bunch of other programs and it ran fine. Prior to this, my main source for romper sounds have been SampleTank, GarageBand, and KORG M1. Pure synth offers a lot more variety in the piano and orchestral categories especially. It is much better for synth sounds than M1 as it has portamento. Pure Synth does not have drums or percussion as of now., but my other instruments cover that pretty well.
I have many synth apps but this app is a must for more standard sounds no Matter what your looking for choirs, strings, guitars electric pianos acoustic pianos you name it it’s here and they all sound great.
Great sounds! The most fun you can probably have for this little money! I almost feel bad paying so little. Many great sounds!
