DesignByPaul released today an interesting new app with the name PRFORM that includes 9 Synthesizers and 16 pads. Quite a different concept for a Synthesizer app but I’m curious about the sound quality of it. Check below all the features of this new app.

Available here: DesignByPaul PRFORM

Harness the power of 9 independent synthesizers right at your finger tips.

PRFORM is comprised of 4 synths (2 leads, bass and pad) and 5 synth drum modules(bass, clap, snare, hi-hat, and noise) all playable from an on screen 4×4 grid of 16 performance pads. The performance pads are also trigger-able via MIDI and Audiobus Remote allowing you to play inspiring live performances. 

PRFORM also has 5 effects and a 4 track looper. PRFORM has a vast array of parameters easily accessible thoght its lcd display, enabling you to create a vast palette of unique sounds to your taste, whether it be: Trap, Dubstep, EDM, Dubstep, DNB, House, Electro, Future bass, Brostep, Hardstyle, Foot work, Techno, Trance, 
Bass music, Downtempo, House, Trap or U.K. Garage.

PRFORM has a 4 track volatile memory looper for quick and easy building of tracks during live performances, jams or just getting ideas down. Play anywhere, on-the-go, on the bus, in the studio or on stage.

PRFORM – The 9 Synthesizer modules

Synth Modules:

PRFORM has 9 synth modules, that can be triggered via the 16 performance pads in a live or studio recording. Each module has an “LCD display” for control of the synthesizers and effects parameters. PRFORM has 5 send effects, allowing you to add depth to your performance.
  • Mono-synth lead – has 3 trigger pads and features a 24db/octave resonant ladder style filter and 12db/octave high-pass filter 
  • Supersaw lead – 8000 style detonable supersaw has 4 trigger pads, 6db/oct high-pass and 12db/oct low-pass filters
  • Bass – has 3 trigger pads with fm oscillator, a 6db/octave resonant low-pass filter connected to LFO for Dubstep Wub bass, and distortion and bit-crusher 
  • Pad – 4 oscillator synth with 24db/octave resonant filter. Its oscillators amplitudes can be controlled via joystick or 2 supplied LFOs

Drum Synth modules:

Classic Synthesized drum sounds are at the heart of PRFORM.
