VirSyn has announced Addictive microSynth, a music app for iPhone/iPod which combines the synthesis power of Addictive Synth with an easy to use 4 track loop phrase recorder.

VirSyn Addictive microSynth

It was never so easy to create beautiful sounds and driving loops. The unique dynamic wavetable synthesis allows you to explore an unprecedented wide range of sonic territory. From acid loops, crystal clear percussions, realistic human choirs to complex musical sound scapes nothing seems impossible with only a handful parameters to tweak.

Together with the intelligent randomizer for both sounds and arpeggios you will loose any sense of time and space while exploring unknown sonic territories. Right from the beginning you’ll understand why it’s named Addictive.
