- Visualize: With a touch of the Fetch button, Patch Touch shows you the full structure of the current patch on your synthesizer, including the structure of the currently selected algorithm and all envelopes.
- Edit: Change sounds in realtime while playing your synth. Every change you make to an on-screen control on your iPad is immediately sent to your synth, making sound design for these complex synths much easier. Quickly test out different algorithms, copy and paste envelopes between ops, turn individual ops on or off, and more.
- Organize: Save sounds to your own personal collection of patches inside of Patch Touch. Perfect for building a library of sounds you design, as well as making copies of patches that are already on your synth. Sysex files of patches can also be exported to email, Dropbox, etc.
- Randomize: The Random button creates a new patch by intelligently randomizing all of the parameters on your synth. A great way to discover new sound ideas.
- Play: Tap the Play button to show a simple pentatonic keyboard, so you can play your DX or TX directly from within Patch Touch, making it easy to test sounds as your change them.
