Ratings and Reviews
If you like Edm this is excellent for laying down some ideas on the move or having fun in general. You can actually get some very good patterns on it. I would recommend the EDM package to give it a bit more. I would like to also see a new pack. Highly recommended
Great app but not as playable as the hardware version for me.
The best thing about this app for me is the Ableton link making it clock timetable with loads of other stuff. If it didn’t have that I would just stick with my hardware kaossilator. The hardware version allows infinite overdubs and you can play any of it’s sounds freestyle over the top. This app doesn’t seem to allow that. Once you have the 5 loop slots loaded and playing, as soon as you select another sound to play over the top with, it just changes one of the loops sounds too. Am I missing a trick here ?
Also..... I was keen to purchase several more sound packs, which just ain’t there to be bought, even though when you look at the library there’s the two you can have, essentials and edm and loads of empty slots, giving the impression there’s more to be had, but...... nope 👎
Come of Korg, you must have loads more to offer !
Developer Response ,
Hi, thanks for the review. I'll share your comment with the dev team. Best, KORG app team
I love Korg products, software and hardware.
This is a brilliant app and the ability to import loops and get them to fit to the tempo of your project makes it five star .
Some new sound packs would be a good idea though.
