PolyWave: New Wavetable Synth by FingerLab & Jordan Rudess, Built with AudioKit 5

PolyWave is a new synthesizer by FingerLab and Jordan Rudess. It’s built with our latest AudioKit v5 open-source code. Here’s how Jordan & FingerLab describe the app:

From the minds of Fingerlab (multiple-time winner of Music App of the Week, 2012 Apple Design Award) and Jordan Rudess (keyboardist of Dream Theater, 2019 Denny Award winner for the ios app ‘Geoshred’), comes PolyWave, a revolutionary synthesizer technology that employs a novel wavetable sequencer to create unique and ever-evolving sonic experiences. PolyWave is inspired by the vintage sounds of the legendary Korg Wavestation synth.

This is one of several great apps that Fingerlab has built using AudioKit’s free open-source library
They’ve also created Mynth, Flynth, Playset, Mellowsound, and SK-51.

Fingerlab manager Aurélien Potier shared his experience using AudioKit:

“We have been working with audio processing on iOS for many years. The audio part has always been a nightmare for us (and for all iOS audio devs I should say). AudioKit has succeeded in making a simple & powerful audio framework for iOS and MacOS.”

Thanks Aurélien! We really appreciate your kind words.
