AudioKit Pro has announced the release of FM Player 2, an updated version of the iPad Instrument inspired by classic 80s FM synthesizers.

The sequel to the award-winning FM Player app (released in 2017) that has been played by Herbie Hancock and downloaded by over a hundred thousand musicians worldwide now comes with AUv3 support, a vintage Arp/Step Sequencer, and lots more.

FM Player 2 has been completely rewritten and now supports modern features like AUv3 plugin functionality, a sequencer, dual layers, and hundreds of hand-crafted new presets.
