"Digital D1 synth is pure ‘80s and ‘90s digital lushness" - Computer Music/Music Radar
"Beautiful. Lush. Modern and Amazing… An Instant Classic."

REQUIREMENTS:
Requires newer iPads for best performance. May be slow on iPad 4.  
IAA is being deprecated by Apple in iOS 13. We're moving to AUv3 as well. Please replace IAA with AUv3 in your projects.

GarageBand Audio Unit (AUv3):
You can run one instance of D1 as an AUv3 in GarageBand. With a host like AUM, you can run 3 or more instances at once.

TROUBLESHOOTING:
For iPad 4 - Open the "Settings" button (to the upper left above the keyboard). Turn the buffer to 512 or above. And turn the "CPU Efficient" toggle to on. If still having trouble, try closing other music apps and/or rebooting your iPad. Thanks!

** This app does not sample any PCM-based synths, including Roland or Korg digital keyboards. Additionally, this app does not have any business relationship with Roland, Korg, or any other 80s/90s Digital Synth manufacturers.

*** All app sounds were created by pure analog and fm synthesis. We took these new sounds. Stacked them. Flipped them. And,  processed the heck out of ’em. Resulting in a beautiful new sonic palette for you to enjoy.

Version 1.5.1 release notes

Wow! Thanks Everyone! YOU'RE AWESOME! • New iPadOS Updates • New: Bluetooth MIDI compliance for Standalone PLUS, AUV3 Upgrades: + Fixed Crash on Save + Fixed AUv3 Preset Search + We're working on everything you emailed us about. Stay tuned! Plus, other recent updates: • AUv3 now mixes down and freezes in Cubasis, NS2, GarageBand, and more! • D1 has been re-engineered to allow AUv3 in iPadOS/iOS 13 • Inter-app Audio (IAA) has been improved! • Misc bug fixes & upgrades • AudioKit apps will keep improving. We're working hard to make them better for you! NOTES * D1 is rather robust. It's a beast of a synth. * GarageBand: We recommend only running one AUv3 instance at a time in GarageBand * We've and optimized it so you can run 3 or more instances in one AUM project! Of course, if you go above 3 instances running at once, it may become unstable. * AUv3 also handles MIDI better. Use your favorite iOS host like AUM to route MIDI to different instances * AUv3 mode defaults to CPU efficient mode on, which means you don't see the knob animation on LFOs. BTW, this makes it easier to set LFO targets. This can be changed in the "Settings" button to the upper left of the keyboard * There's a new keyboard hide/show icon that appears at the top of the AUv3 mode to make it easier to show/hide bottom panels in AUv3 mode * We can't wait to hear the music you make with D1 as an AUv3 * The app will just get better & better - stay tuned! Email bugs, music, & friendly notes to: hello@audiokitpro.com We're working hard to improve the app for you! Stay tuned!
