DescriptionThis is an emulator of the muSonic 5, a synthesizer originally designed by one of the Moog engineers Gene Zumchek (possibly the real father of modern synths), he proposed then eventually designed and built the prototype Mini Moog, the first fixed configuration portable monophonic. After leaving Moog he created the muSonic who themselves eventually bought the bankrupt remains of Moog and released this synth with a few changes as the Moog Sonic-6. The dual LFO configuration is very rich and there are lots of modulation possibilities as well as direct mix and in this emulator some mild stereo reverb.
The app has an integrated step sequencer which with the reverb can generate some wild sounds, and can record the master output to WAV files including to Ringtones, etc.
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.
