AudioKit Bass 808 Synth 


“This App is a GAME CHANGER FOR 808 BASS” – Brandon Rico

Hope you are healthy and safe. These are trying times, and I hope you’re able to take care of yourselves.

Since starting my app making journey years ago, I’ve dreamed of making a series of limited edition instruments. I’ve always been inspired by the Jupiter-8. There were only around 3,000 people that ever owned one. But it changed music forever. How could we do that for you?

The past year, we’ve been working on a series of 10 Limited Edition Bonus apps. These apps will be available to you, readers of the AudioKit Newsletter. The idea was to make each special limited edition app available for a short period of time (2 weeks), much like a limited edition vinyl run.

These “bonus” apps would give you the ability to elevate your music in a unique way. These special apps are in addition to even more NEW apps we have coming for you this spring and summer.

Because times are hard, we need positivity and creativity more than ever.

We still want to get these apps out to you. This first app drop in the series will be made available for an extended period of time. We’re making it available for a minimum of 8 weeks with possible extensions.

And, the next app drop will be completely free.
Tell your friends to Join the list so you all get these apps!


Answers to your questions about this new limited series.

What happens if I get a new iPhone or iPad?
The limited edition apps you have already have will remain in the app store. You’ll always be able to download them for free on current and new devices as long as you use the same iTunes account.

What happens after the app drop time availability is over?
The apps will remain in the App Store so that you may download updates. After the “app drop”, the price in the app store will go to the maximum price tier. As long as you keep the same iTunes account, you may download updates and copies to new devices, no extra charge!

Will the apps still be updated?
The apps will be updated for new iOS versions, to ensure that your limited edition apps continue to work as iOS technology progresses.

Will the apps support iPhone?
Bass 808 Synth now supports iPhone 6s and above! The apps are Universal, meaning you get both apps for one low price.

Will there be open-source? 
We plan on open-sourcing as much as we can. Some of the code developed for this app has already been added to AudioKit, for all developers to use in their projects, free of charge.

Can I transfer the app to another person?
Currently, Apple does not allow that. However, whomever has access to your iTunes account can use the app.

Are you still working on your existing apps?
Yes! We are still working on improving all our apps, including Synth One, D1, and FM2. The technology developed as a part of these limited edition apps will help improve all our apps.
