    This is a mirror to a post i made on neowin, I wanted to share with my two main communities.

    Evenin' all,

    I had the wonderful opportunity to test the soon-to-be-released Physynth for iPad.
    I'll give you a little bit of background on me, I dabble with music but testing this app
    was really something outside of my comfort zone, it's completely different to any sort
    of musical instrument because its actually a real physics simulator that drives and triggers
    the sounds.

    Physynth is very much an experience more than anything, it's got this vintage feel, one of the
    developers describe it as 'that feeling you get when you find an old bit of kit in your dad's
    garage as a kid, its from the 70's and its awesome!'. It's actually got quite a bit of depth to it
    you'll start off just playing the keyboard in 'Melody Mode' but after a while you end up making
    little contraptions and machines that loop sounds or blend them.

    Overall its something I actually tinker with, what really makes me get it out time and time again is
    that it looks so damn lovely, I am a gamer at heart and graphics make me very pleased as I am
    sure a fair few of you feel also. Why can't more apps be beautiful like this, I am not saying
    everything has to look like real world kit (it's lovely here) but some polish on user interfaces will
    go a real long way. The way it tilts as you move it, really makes it feel almost like a 3DS screen,
    you have to see it to believe it.

    The app is released on the 15th of December, in four days. I am excited to see this get to release
    as it has actually been a pleasure working with the guys at Simian Squared.

    I don't really have time to take my own screen shots so I have used theirs, here is the rest of their promotional material:
