Leisuresonic SynthTronica, 2.99
This one’s had a fair bit of pre-release buzz: it’s a polyphonic instrument that blends an analogue synth, sampler and vocoder. What’s more, it’s been designed very much with the iPad’s multitouch capabilities in mind. Watch this video to see and hear it in action, and buy now to get it for a reduced price.
Somascape HexaChrom, 2.39
A MIDI controller with a difference: rather than looking like a standard keyboard, this isometric device is based on the Harmonic Table. It offers useful musical intervals between adjacent keys, and gives you a different way of playing your favourite software or hardware synths.
