About Syntheogen

Updated April 29, 2014

Syntheogen™ is a music sequencer and synthesizer for Android phones and tablets. It offers sampling and subtractive synthesis like other apps, plus advanced composition features like polyrhythms, custom time signatures, and automatic transposition:

The current version is a beta release; that means the app is largely but not entirely complete. New features are being added, the design is being adapted to user feedback, and bugs are being found and fixed.



Syntheogen is available as a free demo or an inexpensive standard version. The demo saves some but not all your work between sessions, and it does not export to the WAVE format, but it does offer all other features of the standard version. Try the demo on your device and upgrade when you are ready to make music!


Rob Bennett contributed many insightful comments. Frank Malm has been a generous and enthusiastic advocate.

Syntheogen uses Deja Vu Sans. It was developed with the help of GIMP, Inkscape, ImageMagick, Audacity, WinMerge, GLee, and the KVR Audio forums.

Many Syntheogen drum samples were adapted from the Open Source Drum Kit. Syntheogen's filters derive from the 'RBJ' filters created by Robert Bristow-Johnson.
