This is Thump One by Toybox Audio | haQ attaQ

video upload by Jakob Haq

"Thump One is a gritty, phat sounding AUv3 wavetable synthesizer for iOS, desktop and laptop systems. The synth has two engines, whereas one is focused on making heavy kick-like sounds and the other on stacked and detuned oscillators for a wide supersaw sound. Check it out!

Thump One is available for desktop and laptop systems and iPads iOS

via Toybox Audio

"Thump One is an easy to use music synthesiser plugin with a fun glitchy 'wavetable' engine and a bank of flexible multi-segment envelopes to shape the sound in any direction you desire. Perfect for powerful kick drums, huge club basses and soaring leads.

The synthesiser features two powerful engines that can be layered together for a variety of complex sounds and textures. The ‘Kick’ engine features a great sounding 'wavetable' oscillator, with a set of wavetables created from a selection of clean and processed analog kick drum sounds. The ‘Kick’ engine has a high quality saturation and filtering circuit plus an additional 'Buzz' circuit to add a buzzy ‘broken speaker cone’ effect. The second engine, ‘Layer’ uses an accurate model of the 'supersaw' oscillator found in the Roland JP8000 synthesiser, this oscillator has a selection of operating ‘modes' that configure the oscillator to play in intervals and adds various amounts of cross-modulation to create noisy, retro synth sounds, fuzzy glitches or just plain noise."

Krill Synth sounds Great | haQ attaQ

video upload by Jakob Haq

"Seeing discussions about Krill synthesizer and people not wanting to buy it just made me want to review it. 😅 So Is Krill any good? Check out the video to find out!

Krill synthesizer supports AUv3 and can be loaded into any AUv3 enabled host.

0:00 Do not skip!
0:45 The thrill of the Krill
2:06 All about the Krill
7:12 This synth vs. That synth
10:20 Problems with buying apps"

via the App Store:

"The GSi Krill Synthesizer was born from a design originally conceived to work as a mono synthesizer on an embedded processor (RP2040), then it was modified to be polyphonic for a more powerful processor (ARM H7) and finally we thought it would be perfect as a AUv3 for iPad, for those quick and dirty synth sounds you sometimes need without getting lost in endless parameter navigation and menu diving. So here it is, just one screen, one knob - one function, what you see is what you get. Two oscillators, one LFO, one low pass filter, two envelopes, stereo chorus, ping-pong delay, 64 presets. Have fun!"

Mynth Synthesizer is really Good | haQ attaQ

video by Jakob Haq

"Mynth Synthesizer by Fingerlab is really good. Even though the interface is somewhat 'limited', Mynth has a lot going on thanks to how the synth engine works. In this video I am highlighting exactly what it is makes Mynth special and why you should give it a proper try yourself. I've always loved Fingerlab's apps but this time they really surprised me, positively so.

Mynth Synthesizer is an iOS universial app and so it works for both iPad and iPhone. The app is 'Freemium', meaning it's free to download and use with some restrictions. The app can be fully unlocked through a $5 In App Purchase (IAP)."

video by Jakob Haq

"aPolyvoks is a Polivoks-like synthesizer app for iPad. It's not a new app but it did recently receive a very welcome AUv3 update. So now we can load this Russian badboy up in our most favourite DAWs and on top of that, aPolyvoks is completely free. In this episode I'm comparing the app with the original built-like-a-tank Polivoks hardware synth and highlighting some features that are 'missing' in the app."

The SuperSaw Sound and the Synthesizers that can make it | haQ attaQ

video by Jakob Haq

"I've always loved the SuperSaw sound! But what is this sound really and what makes it sound like it does? In this episode of haQ attaQ we're diving deep into the Synthesis of the SuperSaw sound and also the Synthesizers that can produce it. A lot of synths can produce this sound, but not all synths are created equally and so they all differ when it comes to unison mode, voice doubling, detuning and pitch automation.

This episode is somewhat tied to my CyberPunk sounds series and the playlist for this series can be found here ►"

Inside Hainbach's Wonderful Brain | Fundamental | haQ attaQ

video by Jakob Haq

"Fundamental for iOS and desktop, is the brain child of Hainbach and Sinan Bökesoy. But what is Fundamental and how did it come to be. To understand it we have to dive deep into the world of test equipment music, a world that Hainbach is deeply embedded in. A world where music is made with towering statues of old, obsolete, lab test instruments and cables named "Groß Tuchel" and "Klein Tuchel". -This has without a doubt been one of the most fun haQ attaQ docutorials I've ever had the pleasure of making."

How many Synths to Crash an iPad? | haQ attaQ & Jakob Haq's Top 5 iOS Synthesizer Apps 2020

Jakob Haq

"There are so many different Synthesizer apps on the AppStore for us to choose from. However, some app synths are really heavy to run and require a lot of hardware resources like CPU and RAM in order to run properly. Newer iPads and iPhones can load a larger number of AUv3s while older iPads and iPhones can load less. So How many Synths does it take to Crash an iPad?"

Let's Play with Agonizer

Tim Webb

Kai Aras (Numerical Audio) worked with @Jakob Haq to create the Bass Synth of Jakob's dreams. Those dreams were fueled by a love of Dub... which is not something I share. I can dig it, but I can't produce it. I take Agonizer's sound sculpting tools in an entirely different direction in this Let's Play!
