Description:

The FabFilter Twin 2 App is a great-sounding stand-alone* software synthesizer, giving you true analogue oscillator and filter sounds combined with an innovative user interface. Choose from any of the more than 1600 factory presets, or design your own sounds using the flexible modular component display and easy to use drag-and-drop modulation system.

"Twin's sonic quality is a cut above nearly everthing in its class, and the ease with which it can be programmed means it will be as useful to the beginner as it will to the seasoned synthesist." Computer Music Magazine (CM100, p91)

"FabFilter Twin 2 is one of the best virtual analoges we've heard so far, and at this price point it's well worth the investment!" Computer Music Magazine (CM138, page 107)

"Twin 2 is the perfect virtual analog synthesizer. It topples almost everything in its class, hardware or software. [...] It has the style, the sound, the features, the ease of use, the presets (of which there are tons!), and the service behind it that is simply amazing." Wusik Magazine

nice standalone synth - decent interface, nice range of presets, plenty of adjustability, and (best of all) accepts external audio devices like MOTU UltraLiteMk3 for I/O. what more could you really want at this price? i will probably buy the AU version for Logic when i get around to it.

Review by guitardist

avoid this - This is an expensive hobbled demo for their more expensive au/vst synth. Forget it. You can't change tempo with this synth, so unless every song you write is at 120bpm, none of the LFOs, delays, or arps will sync to your song. I wrote Fabfilter about it, they said that tempo is not available for this synth, and of course, suggested that maybe I should spend another $140 to get the full version. Nowhere in the description of this app does it say it's an un-working demo for something more expensive. I am, of course, going to contact my credit card company to get my money refunded. Avoid, avoid.

Good - Better than paying full price when you buy it from their site but a bit of a workaround to get audio into DAW (using soundflower) so you can record with it though. They need to explain how to do this better.
