Alexey Nadzharov has published Isxynth, a new experimental spectral morphing AUv3 Synthesizer for iOS and macOS. 

The Apple AppStore is full of synthesizers for little money. Among them are many traditional synths that follow the VCO, VCF, VCA… design. But there are also wilder, unusual ones. A developer who is specialized in such releases is Alexey Nadzharov.

Among other things, he has the Phawuo, a super dirty experimental mono synth or the bizarre soundfruuze app combining a live sampler, granular effect, and looper in a single. His new app Isxynth explores spectral morphing with live controls.


App Details

Isxynth is not a traditional Synthesizer for iOS and macOS. But that was to be expected from Alexey Nadzharov.

It features an engine allowing you to do wild spectral morphing thingies. The engine gets two input signals, then splits each one into two parts containing a noise and a tone component. From this point, the user can morph between all these elements.

There is also a freeze control for the spectral blurring-like effect on both input signals. It also hosts two 3-second delay lines also equipped with a freeze effect.

Isxynth is not just a synth but also an effect processor. You can process left and right channels (stereo) or use it as an AUv3 effect app. In the latter, it uses two stereo inputs. while the standalone currently only uses “mono”.

You can control the synth with three XY controls allowing you to morph and set the balance between the tone and noise components. Also to adjust the freeze settings. For the delay, there are two sliders available. Cool, you can also record the gestures of all main controls and create wild automations.

First Impression

Sounds like a lot of crazy fun.

Isxynth is available now for an introductory price of $5,99 and runs on iPhones, iPads, and macOS (Apple Silicon) in standalone and as an AUv3 plugin. I particularly like the operation with the XY pads, which allows you to work very performance-oriented.
