Imaginando user review from Apple Store
Eriptron, 2022-11-20
This is what I’d create for myself!

I like, no, I ‘have’ to say it and I NEVER say ‘it’…Love FRMS. If I were creating a sound designer’s dream for myself? FRMS would be what I would come up with. I have every worthwhile synth app on the App Store, like Poison to the Model 15. But for Soundscapes, Ambient and Drone music, in my opinion, FRMS is the best. It is almost impossible to not make incredible sounds. Almost every and any change is interesting and save-able.
