Heat Synthesizer Overview

Heat is not only a synthesizer with a beautiful sound. Mainly targetting Android devices, the synthesizer can be fully integrated as VST plugin to be used in the sequencer of your choice.

This gives you some unique benefits:

  • Design sounds while on the way, store sounds on your local Android Device or use the Collaborative Preset Manager to store your sounds online, making them available to everyone.
  • Control the VST plugin from your Android device in realtime
  • See parameter automations from your sequencer in realtime on your Android device
  • Use the Collaborative Preset Manager on your Android Device to select from a big variety of sounds, made from other users all over the world. Select sounds on your Android Device, while connected, they are immediately loaded by your VST plugin.
  • Use the integrated keyboard of your Android Device to send midi events to your sequencer

Heat Synthesizer is available on Google Play as Pro and Demo version. The VST plugins are available in the Download section.

  1. I have played with it now for 20 minutes and it’s certainly one of the more flexible synths out there for android!
    Will now try the vst version.
    Thank you for the hard work!

    • Hello,

      the plugins are not found if you maybe mismatched Demo VS Pro versions, meaning that you run the Demo of the Android App and the Pro version of the VST or vice versa. Also take care on your firewall settings, as the plugins won’t be found if the Firewall on the host system blocks access to them.

      Regards,

  2. Grat Nil, I love the idea of the make cool sounds on the go (under traveling to work :)

    The app is true eye candy and very handy dandy!

    Keep on the good work… Respect!

  3. 1st really decent android music app yet! still even system 4.2 on a nexus 7 still has latency issues, [as do all music production type apps on android, as opposed to ipad-land] and if you really get it going, the api will start to overload the buffer. turning up the buffer worsens the latency. but sound wise and fun wise its a massive start!…

    now if we could only connect a keyboard controller to the nexus 7/10 that would be great.

    good job!

  4. Is there any possibility of a native Linux port of the VST to run in Renoise…etc?

    I’d be more than willing to alpha/beta test a Linux build.

  5. Great synth!
    This is definitely the best music app i have found on android so far.
    Is there a manual? I can’t seem to find one in the app or on this site.
    Keep up the good work, this is a lot of fun!

  6. Please add a usb host midi interface so we can play the synth with a real keyboard. I love the sounds and the flexibility of heat!

  7. cool app though i got some questions..
    cannot find a way to use the heat’s keyboard to my daw
    and cannot configure any of its parameters..i only can play with the
    parameters on my tablet….for hours…..very good sound in my palm by the way…but only there…could be nice to be able to use and programm it in my daw..could replace my midi keayboard if it workes somehow..
    Keep up the good work!!!
