SynthMaster Player for iOS is the mobile player version of SynthMaster Player. It is targeted towards users who prefer to use presets rather than designing their own sounds during music production.


If you own the SynthMaster VST/AU/AAX version, you can export your own presets to your iOS player. All of the desktop expansion banks are available as an in-app purchase on the iOS player, if you already have purchased for the desktop version, you can use it on the iOS version for free.

The app comes FREE with 100 factory presets. When users complete the registration by entering their names and email addresses they receive another 100 factory presets as a bonus. After completing the registration, users can upgrade to the Pro version of the app by purchasing the "Factory Presets" bank via In-App-Purchase (IAP) for $9.99. With the Pro Upgrade all of the 800 factory presets are loaded and also the following features are unlocked:


  • Users can save the changes they have made to the presets
  • Users can purchase additional preset banks via In-App-Purchase (IAP)
  • Existing SynthMaster users can download their previously purchased SynthMaster preset banks inside the app, so that they don't have to purchase them again
  • Existing SynthMaster users can export their own presets in SynthMaster v2.7 and import them into SynthMaster Player for iOS using iTunes.


Although it is a preset based player, users can edit the following parameters:
  • 8 easy parameters assigned by the sound designer
  • 2 XY Pads assigned by the sound designer
  • Effect bypass states and send amounts
  • Layer bypass states and volumes
  • Master volume, polyphony
