With a large mod matrix, 2x10 oscillator engines, 4 sequencers and a whole host of connectivity options, Factory for iPad looks like a monster of a soft synth.  

Sugar Bytes has released Factory for iPad, which is a modular synthesizer for complex and organic sounds. Free to download, it features in-app purchases to unlock various functions and tools. Here's a video that shows off some of its sounds.

Factory sports a big modulation matrix with all kinds of features to create a wildlife of sounds. A vast array of DSP is ready to play. Analog style oscillators and filters, but also different flavors of wavetable synthesis, Wavetable driven Waveguide resonators and a 3-FX-Chain in a dynamic signal flow.  With the Morph crossfader, sounds can be changed drastically, but always musically.
