Jeff Cooper is a music and audio software developer. For the past few years, he has worked for AudioKit Pro, producing musical apps and building block tools that other developers can use to make their own apps.
Jeff and I spoke about the release of AudioKit's VHS Synth iOS synthesizer app. VHS Synth uses samples of synthesizers recorded to VCR to create a warm and nostalgic sound. I supplied the samples for the app, and Jeff and the team at AudioKit built and designed the app.
Jeff shared stories about his background in music and how he came to coding. He shared thoughts on instrument design and how the choices made by designers influence the way the gear is used.
VHS Synths is available on the iOS App Store: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/vhs-synth-80s-synthwave/id1615208667
