Synth-Q has been designed from the ground up with the touchscreen interface in mind. Synth-Q is a subtractive synthesizer with a customizable interface. A unique module queuing system, resizable multi-octave keyboard, and intuitive cable-based modulation controls offer a truly dynamic music-making experience for iOS.

Each part of the synth is separated into units called modules. Each module snaps into place along a scrollable surface above the keyboard:

  • Control the number of modules shown on the screen at any time. Control which modules appear for each sound.
  • Tap a button on the module menu to launch a module and add it to the queue.
  • Drag a module up and release to remove it from the queue.
  • Drag a module down to move it within the queue.
  • Add variability to your sound by connecting different modules using virtual cables.
  • Alter the sound with synth-Q's movable keys.

Synth-Q provides an intuitive and engaging way to get started creating your own sounds, and is ideal for production, performance and music education environments.

Full feature list:


  • three oscillators sine, triangle, saw, square, pulse and resonant noise waves.
  • three ADSRs amp, filter and modulation envelopes.
