Customizable OSC Control Surface
Compatible with iOS 11 and up
Syntien is a customizable OSC (Open Sound Control) control surface for iOS. It can recognize a variety of different input sources, including touch, movement, and sound.
It comes with the usual variety of buttons, labels, sliders, and knobs, but adds much more to your toolkit with a unique set of controls.
Create your own interfaces and modify the behavior of controls in-app, on any iOS device, without the need for a separate desktop editor! You can use one of the built-in presets, duplicate one for a solid starting point, or build your own from scratch. Place and resize controls exactly how you want them using intuitive drag-and-drop gestures.
Modify your interfaces mid-performance with OSC messages from your computer! Add controls, remove controls, or adjust their behavior with the click of a button. Incoming OSC messages are displayed on the screen and color-coded, so you'll know exactly what messages Syntien is receiving and whether or not they're being interpreted.
