After the initial announcement at NAMM, Cakewalk tells us that Z3TA+ iOS for iPad is now available. Z3TA+ iOS will be Cakewalk's second app for iPad, following the launch of ScratchPad. Here's the details in Cakewalk's own words:
Borrowing from the Mac/Win versions of Z3TA+ 2, Z3TA+ iOS brings an unmistakable signature sound--used globally in countless successful electronic, EDM and dance productions -- to iPad. Redesigned to fit iPad screen-real estate optimally, Z3TA+ iOS maintains its legendary impeccable sound quality and sonic depth, while new touch control capabilities open up even more innovative waveshaping sound possibilities.
Z3ta+ iOS's intuitive sound-shaping environment is segmented into pages. The Synth Page is the heart of the synth, where sound design takes life through oscillators, filters, envelope generators and LFO parameters. The Modulation Matrix/Arpeggiator Page provides exceptional sonic versatility and composition assistance, while the Effects Page offers world-class Distortion, Modulation, EQ, Compression, Triple Delay and Reverb--all with new routing capabilities to craft the perfect sound on the iPad.
For creating music on the go, Z3TA+ iOS's onboard, customizable keyboard not only triggers notes, but allows shifting octaves, choosing root notes, "holding" notes and more. Finally, a header strip completes Z3TA+ iOS's design, by providing easy access to move among pages, search presets, control master volume and choose additional options through the program menus.
