Let's dive straight in... here's what you really need to know:
This is a completely free multi-sampled DX7 instrument app for iPad with over 50+ sounds, and is multi-sampled from a DX7, DX7II, plus some bonus TX81z presets. It looks really nice, behaves really nice and sounds fantastic. Did I mention it's free?
It's been made by the team behind the forward-thinking open-source AudioKit.

Beautiful Free iPad instrument featuring the classic sounds of famous 80s FM Synthesizers.
Here's what some early beta-testers have said about this free synth: “Sounds LUSH and awesome!” (The Sound Test Room). "Truly sounds like the real deal! DX7 is all about the EPs for me...and this one nails it!" (David A., AudioBus Forum). "The sound quality is incredible! Absolutely amazing! No emulation I've ever heard comes even close to this" (IOSoundDesign, AudioBus Forum). "It sounds fantastic! So crisp and clean. I had a few 80/90’s flashbacks on some of those presets. Very cool!" (Eros, AudioBus Forum).
