Below is the first screenshot of the iPhone/iPod UI of Destro. It’s still a work in progress, so some things still might be missing (e.g. a nice background image) or will be changed in the near future, but it will at least give an impression of what to expect. Destro will have three main screens and a couple of secondary screens and help screens. Below is the first main screen, that shows the main synthesizer controls. The second screen will feature the keyboard from AnaMini as well as the drum synth controls. The third screen will feature the sequencer controls (looks a lot like AnaMini) and track selection.

Destro first screen shot

What you can see here (from left to right, top to bottom) are the controls for oscillator, distortion, lfos, adsra, filter and finally the global controls. A brief explanation of each control will follow below.┬áIn general, anything that’s a highlighted shade of green indicates it’s tappable/swipeable.

Oscillator

By tapping on the wave icon, you can select wavetype of the oscillator. By swiping/turning the knob you can detune the oscillator up/down to one octave.

Distortion

By swiping/turning the knob, you can set distortion threshold.

LFO

Tapping on one of the header labels will switch LFO (there are two LFO’s, one that modulates OSC frequency, and a second that modulates filter cutoff frequency). Tapping the wave icon will select the wavetype of the LFO. Tapping the sync icon switches the synchronization of the LFO between the available synchronization options. LFOs always sync to tempo.

ADSRA

Tapping on the header selects the ADSRA: for the amplifier, the filter, or the noise generator. Swiping any slider up and down will change its value. There are sliders for envelope attack, decay, sustain, release, and amount.

Filter

Tapping on the filter type will switch filter type. Three filter types are available: low-pass, high-pass and band-pass. Cutoff frequency can be changed from 20-11000 Hz by turning the left knob. Turning the right knob modifies filter resonance.

Global controls

Global controls are present on every screen. From left to right it shows the help button, the setups button, the settings button and the start/stop button.

That’s it for now, more screenshots will follow in the upcoming days/weeks, so check them out and let me know what you think!
