● The world-wide best-selling Polysix polyphonic synthesizer
Korg's Polysix, a six-voice analog polyphonic synthesizer, went on sale in 1981. While a popular synthesizer of that time was able to produce only five notes simultaneously, the Polysix had six-note polyphony, and its name was an expression of its designers' pride. iPolysix uses Korg's proprietary "CMT" (Component Modeling Technology) to simulate the actual electronic circuits of the original unit, perfectly reproducing the original Polysix.

● The newly developed Polyseq polyphonic step sequencer
Polyseq is a polyphonic step sequencer that provides up to 64 steps, newly developed in order to take full advantage of the Polysix's capabilities. Polyseq provides a different operating feel than a conventional piano-roll sequencer or even a step sequencer; it's a new yet somehow familiar experience, as if you were retracing the evolution of electronic musical instruments. Don't miss the opportunity to try out this perfect match; the Polysix+Polyseq.

● A music production environment including two Polysix units, a drum machine, and a mixer
iPolysix has been created as a professional music production tool. In addition to two Polysix units, it provides a six-part drum machine, and an analog mixer that's reminiscent of the KMX-8 mixer. You'll have everything you need to produce great sounding music. Surrounded by analog equipment, you'll imagine that you've time-traveled back to the early '80s.

● Dual Kaoss Pads with chordal support
The large multi-touch display shows two Kaoss Pads which you can control using both hands to perform music. This enables creative performance even for those who have no musical knowledge. These Kaoss Pads have been customized for iPolysix to allow not only single-note performance, but also chordal playing with just one finger; a new experience made possible only by a combination of new and old technology, the Polysix+Kaoss Pad.

● Polyshare powered by SoundCloud lets you publish, share, and remix songs with iPolysix users around the world
Polyshare is a function for iPolysix users to share their songs. It's based on SoundCloud, the song sharing service favored by music creators. You can make your song available to iPolysix users around the world simply by uploading the song directly from the app. You can download and upload remixable tracks. It's easy to enjoy remixing and collaboration with users around the world.

Great, but needs update

iPolySix is one of the most analog-sounding polysynth apps out there. It sounds just great and others have composed fantastic EDM songs with it. That said, Gadget is far more versatile (and newer). To give this app a second life, it would be an amazing addition to Gadget (i.e., integrated). As a standalone app, iPolySix still has great potential but needs MIDI CC functionality to work better with MIDI keyboard controllers for knob and transport control as well as responding to (and/or generating) MIDI clock. Great job, Korg, but don't stop here!

Past due for an update

With the one year anniversary coming up in little over a week since the last update, I'd say it's past due for one, nothing major as the synth is what it is, but to make it more iOS 10 friendly, and something that would actually make it a big update, make it able to open in Gadget, or what would be even better, make it an audio unit. It's still a great synth, but let's not get complacent, as we know how apps can get when they aren't at the very least, insured to run with the latest iOS without any hiccups.

Blue Gizmo stolen through backdoor!

I once proudly and quickly made the track blue gizmo which I believe is now preloaded with this app. There was somekind of backdoor in the App connected to KORG, I believe I was on a server or something. After my session was completed a pop-up appeared. It displayed menus for Artist name and Year input.. For whatever reason I chose not to use my real name and instead inputted KORG.. I was actually kind of scared. I could have used an alias but no I put KORG. I'm assuming they misunderstood like they could have It or they got mixed up and it ended as a default project.. Weird right..? And evil. After updating the app I no longer have the ability to input artist name or year.. Now why would they go and do such a thing? What's really going on with these apps and how much are they stealing from users taking the credit?!
