8Bitone is a Retro 8-bit Synthesizer + Sequencer for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Not yet Now available in the AppStore but expected very soon, 8Bitone simulates sounds for 8bit Personal Computer and Console Game Generator from the 80′s. The Sequencer part of the app uses Piano Roll Screen and with the Sequencer and Voice Edit, using knobs, switches and sliders you can create or recreate your favorite chiptunes.

Features:
★ Synthesizer / Monophonic / 1 oscillator or LowBitNoise. / LFO / Envelope / HiSpeed Arpeggiator
★ Sequencer Edi t/ With Truck manager on Sequencer screen, Composing is easy with Piano Roll format. In addition, Voice Change is equipped to produce different Voices in the song. 4 trucks are the maximum limit.
★ Voice Edit / The nostalgic sounds can be created here by turing knobs and operating sliders on Synthesizer screen. In 8Bitone, a group of values which are set on the Synthesizer screen is called “VOICE”. Each one song can contains up to 128 Voices. In addition, playing with keyboard on the bottom of the screen can be enjoyable too. Move the wheel to control the Pitch.
★ Edit Controller / Edit Controller on the screen right side will show 3 types of monitor. / Selection is operated by touching each of the monitor`s name.
★ Transcontroller/ PLAY, STOP, COPY, PASTE, DELETE function for songs are performed in the Transcontroller. In 8Bitone, Transcontroller will be turned on with TCR button of the screen upper part.

Unfortunately, it does not seem like the WiFi transfer to your desktop has been included in this release but we hope to see it in the future updates.

The app costs $8.99. For quick start, check out the website where you can find plenty of video tutorials to get you going (we attached first two below). yudo.jp/en/music/eightbitone

    I dont suppose you, or anyone else can tell me wether this is worth the money. The price is a little high for me to just jump in on. Looks great, but im weary that it could be crap. :)

    I bought it. The app looks okay but the UI needs more work. Values are hidden by fingers as we touch the controls associated with them. And the rotary dials just plain suck in that there is no clear interaction rule.

    Just bought it, the file management system and sequencer need some work!

    synth sounds cool though.
