Patch Base for iOS is an excellent software app that includes many editors for modern and vintage Synthesizers. The app can not only score with it huge amount of editors but also with an excellent support. Today, the developer adds support for the massive FM Synthesizer FS1R from Yamaha. This new editor try to simply the program workflow with this vintage hardware Synth.


Patch Base 2.10 adds an editor for the most complex FM synthesizer I’ve ever encountered: the Yamaha FS1R. This thing is a beast. First of all, it has 8 operators for FM synthesis! Imagine the possible chaos. And, each operator has both a “Voiced” and “Unvoiced” part. The Voiced part is your tone generator (similar to the DX7), and the Unvoiced part is essentially a noise generator with its own envelopes, frequency controls, and bandpass filter. The Voiced part also supports multiple waveforms (the FS1R calls them “spectral” forms), including a formant generator. Basically, you can make this thing sound like it’s talking. It is hands-down the most amazing FM synth I’ve ever used, and I’ve only begun to scratch the surface of sound design with it.

New in Patch Base 2.10
  • A brand-new voice editor for the Yamaha FS1R!
  • Added the LFO delay knob for the Waldorf Blofeld.
  • Fixed the MIDI panic button in the in-app keyboard.
  • Code updates to make things faster and smoother.
