App of the monthNews

App of the month April 2015

It was tough decision this month… We’ve got two huge new apps arrived in the AppStore in April.

Cyclop and BIAS FX. It is impossible to choose which one is better. Powerful bass synth or innovative effects app?

Cyclop being popular VST synth was ported from desktop and became just better with touch interface.

BIAS FX added great sounding effects to their amps modeling technology and also created great way to make dual amp FX chains. And you can even put other IAA apps in the chain! Just imagine, you can put Moog filter, SugarBytes WOW or even competitors Amplitube or Line6 pedals/amps right inside your chain in BIAS FX!


So this month the best iPad music app is PositiveGrid BIAS FX.
