SynthStation v2.0 works with any CoreMIDI compatible device, meaning users can employ SynthStation v2.0 on their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch as a virtual synthesizer module for CoreMIDI compliant controllers or integrate it with CoreMIDI compliant hardware and software sequencers. With the new real-time recording capability, users can now record as they create tracks directly on their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch or when controlling SynthStation v2.0 with the SynthStation25 portable controller. SynthStation v2.0's metronome is now fully customizable with adjustable volume and the ability to use any sound as the click track. A new preview ribbon on the sounds page allows users to preview any sound before assigning it.

Originally released in 2010, SynthStation transforms iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch into a portable music production studio. While SynthStation is powerful enough for professional musicians, virtually anyone can use it to easily create music. Featuring three synthesizers for creating melodies, chords and bass lines, SynthStation also contains over 50 drum kits with all the classic sounds of the past, legendary MPC samples and most popular modern samples.
