The best all around virtual instrument synth from KORG!
I own the majority of Korgs iOS apps and this one kinda takes the cake on features alone. I would also suggest getting the in app purchases for this! You can program your own drum kit with a keyboard chase option! I am ecstatic because I have really been searching for an easy way to map drums to my Arturia beatstep without remapping midi notes. You can also map any sound to a key on the drum kit and it will auto assign the lower pitched notes with a no assign slot. Going to got absolutely bananas with drum kits now! Not to mention this thing does practically any instrument sound aside from heavily modulated stuff. My gripes are bit of a high learning curve for beginners, and it has no easy mixer page (could just be on master fx page) aside from adjusting each instruments volume one at a time. The app sounds awesome and is a great addition to iOS music making. After touch supported for the seaboard like gear. Also works great with geoshred more mode, but I just record audio for that because I don’t know how to record mpe midi into cubasis. Midi routing is pretty good and allows channel selection but lacks source option. Software manual is online. Obligatory comment about Korg not making audio units (or allowing them in gadget) for apps like aum3, cubasis, etc. Use aum + rozeta sequencer suite/atom + midiflow + this... for a good time. 🤪
My Go-to Synth on iOS
Like many others, I have bought quite a few iOS synths. They are like jellybeans, it’s tough to stop at one. Unlike a number of other synths though, this is the synth I choose for quick renderings of ideas, or a fast patch that fills a mood. It is simple enough that I can edit and change patches relatively quickly, but versatile and rich enough to fill many needs.
I will say that it doesn’t have the punch and power of the best iOS analog emulations, so you may want to add those for your muscular synth sounds.
Also, many sounds are very similar to those produced by iWavestation. The difference is that iWS followed this synth and is more complex but adds greater animation to the sounds. It’s not as easy to use and program but was the next generation product (though still 25 years old).
I have both products by Korg. They are well-rendered and sound amazing. Add a ballsy analog synth and you are pretty close to having it all.
Fun to play with if you don't see it as a sampler!
This is the perfect synthesizer for layering sounds! I don't simply treat it as a sampler but a Linear Arithmetic and DWGS synth that can have sounds layered and split in different ways! I also find the presets and samples interesting because of their "Japanese" sound. It is also one of the few Multi-Timbral apps. This means that each preset can be assigned to its own Midi channel.
