One of our favorite new synths for the iOS, Cassini is very powerful and sounds great but unfortunately doesn’t come loaded with a good deal of sounds. Casino is our response – 59 high quality presets showcasing this synths strengths, namely its ability for deep, rich evolving sounds and extensive, dynamic modulation. Thick basses, ethereal pads, glitchy “arp-chord” chiptune, vintage replications – we even threw in a oldschool gunshot!
