SynthPond gives people with no previous knowledge of music the ability to create beautiful, ambient, soothing synth loops. It uses a color-based notation system, a sequencer referred to as color sentences and a series of concentric "pond-like" circles with resonating notes placed inside them as a panning and timing system.

SynthPond might sound complex at first, but it only takes a few seconds of toying around with the app to understand how it works. Unforunately, the lack of any deep synth configuration options and the complete absence of a standard timing system renders this app useless in serious recording situations.

But if the thought of treble clefs and staccatos leaves you scratching your head, pick up synthPond today for a buck 99. Who knows, its brilliant design might just compensate for a complete lack of talent.
