About this app

SynprezFM 2 is a programmable polyphonic synth with a multitouch dynamic keyboard, arpeggio, effects and 1024 built-in instrument patches. It uses Frequency Modulation, a lightweight method for generating complex harmonic waveforms by mixing or combining sine samples controlled by envelops and LFO. It is able to produce analog style pads, to emulate classic or modern instruments, or to invent new and awesome crystalline sounds.
SynprezFM 2 is also a Yamaha DX7 emulator, that can render with accuracy the sysex files you upload into an external storage directory setup by menu, in order to heighten the experience. You can also create and save your own patches, either by editing one of the (deliberately) unsorted builtin ones, or starting from scratch with the 'init voice' function.
It is possible to record WAV, to connect a MIDI keyboard (using a USB/OTG cable for Android Honeycomb 3.1+, or Bluetooth Low Energy for Android Jelly Bean 4.3+), and to take advantage of a small step sequencer. Even small devices can now leverage 2 synthesizers thanks to an optimized layout. To simplify the classic usage, complex functions are now only available in 'expert mode' (activatable in the setup page): this regards the patch editor and the new micro-tuning feature.
While you play, you can trigger an after-touch vibrato effect by dragging your fingers on the active keys or shift the keyboard to different octaves. Other performance parameters can be accessed above the keyboard, including 2 types of portamento, a sensitivity range for pitch or volume modulations, and some effects that give a sense of depth when using a headset, especially on plucked sounds. You can also adjust the polyphony to adapt to your device capabilities. Thanks to an optimized core, you can hear up to 16 channels playing together, even on mid-range devices.

[Thank you Caroline, for kindly correcting my english :) ]

Does everything I wanted it to! It's quite capable and intuitive, with a decent set of synths and lots of little things that just work, like after touch effects. My only suggestion would be to make the black key hitbox slightly larger (or have this be customizable if it isn't already); it's easy to miss and hit a white key instead.

I like the sounds of the synthesizer, but the only problem is, the keys on the touchscreen is really small when zoomed out and I can't press 1 key without another key being hit next to it. I think if there was a way to customize the piano so the keys are much wider when zoomed out this should help more when playing with the touchscreen. Other then that it's really good especially when playing with an actual midi piano.

Seems great but I seem to be missing functions. It appears very robust. I like the sounds. I like being able to modify the sounds. However, I have not been able to figure out how to save sounds I have modified and created. I have also not figured out how to load recordings. I've also seen the video showing where it looks like somebody's looping something they have played but I have not been able to figure that out either. Is there a video tutorial or a user guide or anything that can help me.

the real edition is achieved on FM parameters, when the mode expert is "on" (see setup menu). When patch parameter are modified, a dot appears next to the patch number (red LEDs), so any attempt to change patch will trigger a popup to save or discard the sound. The simple editor just modifies performance setup and cannot be saved (so far!)
