OK, this is strange, Ryan of IK posted this over a month ago and I don't see any posts. Guess I'm the first. I wonder if the Mac/PC version of Syntronik has more visiting eye balls. I've bolded the basic request for those of you that like to scan.

1. PLEASE make the Filters (Category / Timbre / Style, etc.) more readable! So Category is a nice bright white against a black back drop. However, the individual items in the Category list (Arpeggio, Bass, etc.) are a faint whitish grey against a grey back ground. So so hard to read!
Even indoors, I have to squint a bit, but when i play outdoors, which is mostly where i play, it's nearly impossible to read one of the individual items, i've had to memorize where things are and count up or down the rectangular blocks.

2. Level out the individual instruments so they don't distort. I don't understand how Syntronik was called a finished product when many of the individual patches distort. First thing i HAVE to do with my favorites is to make sure the Volume and Master Volume are both set to 0 db (and of course i make sure its soloed), and if its distorting I adjust the compression, eq, and gain in the FX section until i'm no longer able to make it distort. In extreme cases i adjust the cutoff as well. Any other suggestions welcome.

2.b. Have a way to adjust the Volume of the 4 Tones in a multi. Even if I've made sure that each of the individual Tones don't distort, by the time they're combining, the meters are seeing red. And it's not something (I think) that I would want to adjust with the Volume slider, if for no other reason than it's very very hard to precisely control that slider.

3. As much as I love having the Favorites Gold Star to work with, I'm hopeful that you can add two more: a question mark and a NO. So above the Category label you'd see the Gold Star, another line for ?, and another line for NO (whatever that would look like).

As great as all the Filters are that are provided (TBH, there's a ton of them to remember), alot of times I want to mark something as a big NO, just so I don't have to re-visit that same sound. It takes endless hours going thru the sounds, adding filter labels to the ones i like, and its not like i remember everything i've heard. As much as i need a Gold Star, I also need a NO or a ? to navigate so many sounds, so many of which are unfamiliar to me, so I'm stumbling around in the dark trying to make sense of where I'd use a particular far out sound.

By way of feedback- the only Filters I use are the Gold Star and everything in the Category list. It's a finite amount, and it covers the basic kinds of sounds.

4. Have the option for an easier to use interface. As cool looking and custom as the authentic synths look, I'd like to have the option to switch to one or two templates for editing synths that are designed to be easy and user friendly to adjust with a touch screen. When I'm in the thick of editing i don't care how cool it looks, i just want it to be fast and responsive and not have to fuss with a design that is neither. As an iPad user, it can be challenging sometimes to use some of the synths.

On a happier note, I've been blown away with Syntronik, it's my favorite iPad app. The range and awesomeness of the sounds really makes me happy! I often have little to no idea what to do with the vast sonic pallette offered, but really appreciate the sound quality and variety!

Hi IK Multimedia team.
I love the app and I use it also live, controlled by a Akai MPK49 MIDI master keyboard and a McMillen 12Step foot controller.

Here‘s my request: please make assignable individual MIDI channel for every tone in a multi. Eg. tone A = channel 1, tone B = channel 6, tone C = channel 7 and tone D = channel 10.

Thank you.
