Let the bells ring out for Mersenne, a melodic percussive iPad synth

IceGear has announced its latest iPad synth app in the form of the Mersenne. Following on from the Lorentz synthesizer, Mersenne is polyphonic, but it is sonically focused on the creation of percussive sounds.

The synth engine incorporates FM synthesis and IceGear has done its best to make the interface as user-friendly as possible, with an intuitive layout. Two FM tones can be joined by the noise generator and fed through a resonator to create some beautiful metallic sounds.

The app also incorporates the same arpeggiator that can be found in IceGear's previous synths.

Mersenne is available on the App store at 30% off for £2.99/$3.99, which is a limited time offer. For more information, check out the IceGear website.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
