    A nice start to the New Year. Well done Matt. Highlights are that harmonica sound, marimba, x harp,Trenton Wheeler, vibe thingy plus ethereal and Jazz Guitars.

    Will hopefully get some of these into songs on our next RTM album ‘Go-Go Bonobo.’

  • I’m not normally a fan of FM synths, but these sounds are terrific, top job throughout this app!

  • Would a kickstarter campaign help this fabulous app go AUv3? I’d contribute heavily :)

  • HAPPY NEW YEAR Everyone!

    Awesome video, Doug. \m/

    WOW. Talk about fast turnaround time.

    Meanwhile, I'm going to go deal with this hangover. A bloody mary should do it.

    Thank you. After we finish & release AudioKit Synth One. I will turn my attention to a pro/AUv3 version of FM Player. All your kind words are motivating me to do it. Thank you for your patience!

    (Myself and some folks at AudioKit are also working on an AUv3 BassStationII/SH101 inspired synth coming this year- mainly just the raw analog tone beast of a bass synth. It will not be a 1-to-1 clone of either of those.)

    Awesomeness. Maybe AudioKit shall own 2018? :D

  • Happy new year everyone. I love this app and i just installed the update. After the update there is a very noticable pop sound while playing and switching between presets. It doesn't do it with all presets, but it happens more often than not. I was able to delete and restore the previous version and don't notice this popping. Installed the update again and voila the popping is back. I'm running it on an iPadPro 9.7" iOS10.3.3. Not sure if i'm the only one with this issue, but hopefully it is something that can be fixed in a next update. Thanks again for this great synth app! Looking forward to the other upcoming synth as well

    Drat! Thanks for letting me know @Dutchee

    Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

  • No, though I really don't know if I do the right thing do get this popping. Mainly because I don't understand why to switch a preset while playing ;-) iPad Pro 12,9 with 11.2.1

    Update on this issue: This build uses the latest AudioKit develop branch. I'm also getting some popping in other code. I'm going to push a fix to the App Store for you with a more stable version of AudioKit. That will hopefully fix it for you. B)

    Thanks everyone!

  • @analog_matt , thanks for update, would like to see a bigger browser and the ability to save ones patches in a user bank with the ability to add type and name. All in all its a beast, love it.

  • @analog_matt I respect anyone that gets on this forum with a hangover. It’s easy to get on here drunk or tipsy, but hungover takes true dedication.
    Btw fm player is truly a great gift to us iOS music junkies out here, I really appreciate your generosity.

    Awesome, thanks!

    Another thing i noticed in this last update is that once the multi-delay is enabled the audio can only be heard on the right channel. Only when I set the wet/dry mix to 0% the left channel will become audible again. Definitely a new bug i think.

    Good ear. That is also being caused the AudioKit Dev branch. That's the magic of open-source. Anyone can introduce as many new bugs as they like. Just pushed an update. Hopefully, Apple reviews it shortly...
    Sorry about all this!

    Haha no problem at all! I thought i would rather mention it too, just in case it was something unrelated. Better to squash as many of these new bugs at once :smiley:

    @Dutchee - The update is live (1.0.4). I couldn't produce the issue locally in FM Player. Hopefully, this new update fixed it for you?

    Hi Matt, thanx a lot for the latest update. This indeed fixed the issues I was having. Everything is sounding great again! Also thanx for the cool new presets, they're awesome.

    Shew! Thanks for your help in tracking down this issue!

    Also, thanks to everyone else in this thread for your kind words and suggestions. I'm adding your suggestions to the future feature list.

  • "+ Saves MIDI Channel setting between launches"

    God bless you. Also love this one:

    "+ Always on/don't sleep toggle: Use this when playing live with a MIDI Keyboard to keep app from falling asleep (MIDI button for option)"

    Great update!!

  • edited January 2018

    I am hearing a very distinct click/pop when changing presets now tho that I did not hear previously. Is this just me?

    EDIT: Also randomly hearing white noise and/or distortion added to patches when changing

    EDIT 2: NM. I just realized there was another update after the new sounds one. All good after new update! Nice work!!!

    This app is a godsend. I like exactly none of the FM synths out there for live use and this fits the bill perfectly for my 80s band.

    That's awesome. If we're ever in the same city, I'd love to see your 80s band play! (That goes for anyone on here performing or in a band)

    Also, if you ever make video recordings of you playing live with the app, would also love to see!

    Thanks for being Rad!

    You bet!

    I currently am using:
    OnSong
    iM1
    Animoog
    Poison-202
    iMono/Poly

    Hope to be working FM Player into the mix soon.

    @djjuniorpops -

    Finally got this going for you. Thank you for your patience. There's a new preset panel in version 1.0.6 (submitted last night) which should be available as soon as Apple approves the update.

    Thanks everyone!

    Source Code: The source code for the new preset panel will be in the upcoming AudioKit Synth One github repo. If you're interested to see how it is built, I will be releasing the code there. Trying to keep the ROM Player repo very simple and easy to grok. B)

  • Hey @analog_matt is there a repo of FM Player presets somewhere?
