AudioKit VHS Synth Released: 80s Lo-Fi Synth Magic

Producer Brian Funk and AudioKit have teamed up to bring you VHS Synth. It features synths recorded with a VCR, then resampled. Press a key, and create instant lo-fi and retro vibes in your music.  VHS Synth is available now.

This is the first app we’ve released with version 5 of our free & open-source Audiokit library. Beta tests were incredibly promising.  AudioKit version 5 delivers stability improvements, especially with iOS AUv3 plugins.

We’re thankful for the incredible iOS community. The app includes over 280+ Presets by Jakob haQ, Red Sky Lullaby, The GarageBand Guide, DJ Puzzle, Sound of Izrael, DJ Montra, Marc Hupkens, AnalogMatthew, JEC, DJ Mantra, Da Fingaz, Brian Funk, and more.
