Green Oak Software has released Crystal Synth XT version 1.2, an updated version of its software synthesizer for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

Crystal XT is a semi-modular synthesizer, designed for creating lush, evolving soundscapes. Crystal VST is a well-established synthesizer on the desktop. Crystal XT brings the same synthesis engine to the iPad and iPhone.

Crystal XT features MIDI keyboard input via the iPad’s camera adapter or the Line 6 MIDI Mobilizer and sharing of sounds with the desktop version of Crystal.

Here's what's new in version 1.2:

  • New two octave keypad with selectable modes.
  • Patch designer on iPhone for creating patches.
  • Audio recording which may be copied to desktop.
  • Audio copy/paste to copy recordings to other apps.
  • Support for Line 6 MIDI Mobilizer to connect a MIDI keyboard to Crystal on an iPhone or iPad.
  • Patch breeding can now include up to 20 user patches.
  • High precision mode (drag vertically to get high precision after touching slider) for precise slider adjustments.

Pricing and Availability

Crystal Synth XT is available now for US $4.99. A basic version of Crystal is also available for $.99 .
