SynthPad is an instrument inspired by the interface of the Korg Kaossilator family of devices. Instead relying on piano keys to register notes, SynthPad uses a dedicated touch surface to control the sounds. Additionally the Y-Axis on the touch surface can be used to control different parameters, like filter cutoff and LFO values, making it an extremely expressive little toy.
Its sound engine is a fully programmable monophonic virtual analog synthesizer. Among its parameters one can find:
- 2 oscillators with different wave shapes
- Fine tuning of the second oscillator
- Volume Envelope
- LFO modulation
- A Low-Pass filter
- Filter Envelope
Additionally, the scale and the key on the touch surface can also be configured, making this instrument ideal for live improvisation.
It is possible to save patches after you have modified them by following these steps:
- Modify a patch parameter
- Notice that the bank letter for that patch turns red
- Touch the red bank letter to save the modification
- Your patch has now been saved. (Notice the red status on the bank letter is gone)
