MOOG MODEL 15 (£29.99)

Moog syn­the­sis­ers are leg­endary for their bass sounds, some­thing lis­ten­ers dis­cov­ered way back in the 1960s when ‘Dr Robert’ Moog re­leased his first mod­u­lar sys­tems. Here, the pop­u­lar, portable (!) Model 15 gets the vir­tual treat­ment and loses noth­ing in the process. If you want those big, bois­ter­ous Moog bass tones on your tablet, look no fur­ther.

KORG iMS-20 (£14.99)

Korg’s MS-20 was (and is) one of the best bass synths you can get. It’s raw, grimy, and loaded with at­ti­tude. In their re­pro for iPad, Korg of­fer only one of the most badass semi­mod­u­lar syn­the­sis­ers ever conceived, but wrap it into an en­tire elec­tronic mu­sic stu­dio, com­plete with se­quencer and drum ma­chine.


One of the first iOS synths to make a splash with mu­sos, Sunrizer was clearly in­spired by the pop­u­lar vir­tual ana­logue hard­ware synths of the 1990s. On the sur­face, it ap­pears to be your bog-standard ana­logue sub­trac­tive job, but its sound qual­ity proved once and for all that an iOS synth could go toe-to-toe with desk­top al­ter­na­tives.
