The PCMsynth uses samples as its primary sound source. The app has plenty of very useful presets supplied covering pads, leads, basses and a small range of instruments. The Bassline instrument is based upon a certain Roland classic and is easy to use and capable of some nice tones. The FMsynth provides FM synthesis while the 8bitsynth allows you to create sounds by entering a mathematical formula.


Caustic 3 for Android is quite deep with plenty of potential and supports automation on most controls and includes powerful editors for modifying recorded beats. All files are stored on the user-accessible storage, and you can supply own WAV files to be used in app.
