Electro-Harmonix President and Founder, Mike Matthews stated: "Fans of vintage synths will appreciate the app's ability to re-create the original's warm analog sounds and deep funky bass, but because it's so affordable and user-friendly, parents, educators and non-musicians will love it, too."
Here is an overview of the user interface:
Electro-Harmonix was founded in 1968 by Mike Matthews and has been a pioneer in the creation of sound effects for musicians since that time. Their earliest product, the LPB-1 Linear Power Booster, helped usher in the "Age of Overdrive." Subsequent products like the Big Muff Pi Distortion/Sustainer, POG2 Polyphonic Octave Generator and Deluxe Memory Man Analog Delay have achieved cult status. Located in New York City since the company's inception, Electro-Harmonix currently manufactures over 125 different sound effects products for musicians.
