Lorentz - AUv3 Plugin Synth

4.69 • 16 Ratings


Lorentz is not only an analog modeling synthesizer, but also has a resonator that allows you to create metallic and distorted sounds. This makes it easy to create new synthesizer sounds with a resonator. Unstable and fluctuating oscillators have unisonable sawtooth waves, pulse width modulated square waves, sub square waves and noise. You can mix these waveforms at the same time. The filter has a self-oscillating resonance. # Note - This product is compatible with iPads and iPhones, but not compatible with Apple Silicon Macs. - This product mainly contains basic presets that are useful as a starting point for sound creation. Please note that there are no huge amount of presets. Enjoy making sounds. # Synthesizer Engine - Oscillators : Saw, Pulse, Sub, Noise* High Pass Filter - Low Pass Filter - Resonator - AMP - 2x Envelope Generator - LFO - Effects : Chorus, Delay # Programmable Arpeggiator You can easily create your own pattern. # Universal App It is compatible with iPad and iPhone and has multiple screen layouts optimized for different screen sizes. # Audio Unit Extensions (AUv3) You can use this AUv3 Plug-In in a host application that supports Audio Unit Extensions (AUv3). # Audiobus You can stream live audio directly to an Audiobus compatible application. See for more information. # Ableton Link Link is a technology that keeps devices in time over a local network. See for more information. # MIDI input - Core MIDI, Virtual MIDI, Inter-App Audio MIDI Input - MIDI clock synchronization - MIDI controller mapping # Preset sharing You can share your presets with other users. You can add presets created by other users to your preset library using the iOS Share Extension feature. # More information Introductory videos and manuals can be found on the website below.
What’s New
- The Synthesizer Engine has been fine-tuned for oscillator phases, envelopes, etc. You can revert to the previous Synthesizer Engine in the settings screen. These settings are saved in presets, and different versions of the Synthesizer Engine can be used with each preset. - Other minor fixes and improvements.
Version 2.5.14

    Another good one
    Like all of their synths! Great sounding! Get it now!

    Core subtractive synth
    Regular classic synth sounds. Reason for high rating is this is very efficient, low cpu for most things, which is always an issue on iPad versus laptop.

    Cassini and Polysix had a baby!
    I thought this would be just a generic polysynth, but after reading the reviews, I decided to give it a shot. This is a really fun app, and I'm glad it now has AU support! If you like the simplicity of the Polysix, you'll love this. It doesn't sound as smooth or dampy as the polysix, but it still combines what makes the iPolysix fun with the modern and quirky traits of Cassini. Show more

    Great Simple Synth
    With a powerful arpeggiator. Thank you for AUv3!

    Lorentz is a BEAST
    I own a LOT of iPad audio apps and well over 30 iOS synths. Of those, there are only a handful I would use for professional recording, such as Moog Model 15, Animoog, Korg ARP Odessei, Nave, and a few others. I would put Lorentz in that elite group. It can sound like a Jupiter 8 or a CS80 or even a 303. The routing is amazing… the filters are top-notch (a full LPF on just the Delay)… and that resonator just fills the sound with harmonics. Lorentz does dark and gritty very well too. It has all the MIDI options needed as well as Link. Did I mention it has dual envelopes? The other IceWorks synths are great too but this is my dog right here. Show more

    Link has strange property
    Love all iceworks apps. I have all the recent Link-enabled ones and they are always the first ones I open during a session. For some reason, when the apps join the network they interrupt the tempo of the session first instead of looking at what the current tempo is first and changing to that. This can really jumble what would otherwise be a seamless and enjoyable experience. All the synths sound great and I love the arp and hold buttons. I also love that they have standard midi functionality. Show more

    Love the resonator section in this app. This is a solid, mostly one-page synth made special by the resonator that transforms every patch in beautiful and dissonant ways. Well worth the price for this effect alone. Show more

    another home run
    very powerful and easy to use. creative musician will love it.

    Nice one
    Good synth for working with bass, pads, leads, poly. Nice clean one-page interface, only other window is for the arp. (And it's a really good arp too, jam on it in real time.) LPF on the delay does lead to some interesting patches if you are a delay junkie. Not overloaded with presets but most of what they include are usable, very few of the "I created this amazing patch that you are never going to use" type. Dual filters remind me of my Virus. More of a "digital" sound than synths like iSEM or iMini, but not harsh. Reliable too. Audiobus is solid. Midi learn. You can create your own folders for user presets. You can create arp presets too. All good. Show more
