Korg iMS-20 App for iPad - v1.1
Korg’s top-selling iMS-20 app for iPad has just been enhanced.
Version 1.1 adds MIDI control capabilities by using the Apple Core MIDI features found in iOS 4.2, via the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit. Users can now play the MS-20 Synth and tweak the onscreen knobs(*1) using external MIDI devices(*2). Users who also own an MS-20 Controller (bundled with the original Korg Legacy Collection software) can use it for patching cables. The six-part Drum Machine can receive different MIDI notes per part.
iMS-20 is a music production app for iPad, consisting of a recreation of the Korg MS-20 analog synthesizer with patching capabilities, a 16-step analog sequencer based on Korg's SQ-10, a six-part drum machine with dedicated pads, a seven-channel mixer with 14 types of effects and Korg's Kaoss Pad technology. Users can share their songs online via the SoundCloud network.
