Korg has unveiled the new iPolysix app designed to evoke Korg's analog polyphonic synthesizer while making use of the iPad interface.

Up to eight instances of the synth can be used in conjunction with new features that include a sequencer, drum machine, multiple effects, Korg's acclaimed Kaoss touch functionality for note and controller entry, and an automated mixer. 

 

The original Polysix, a six-voice analog polyphonic synthesizer, launched in 1981. iPolysix uses Korg's "CMT" (Component Modeling Technology) to simulate the electronic circuits of the original instrument and its pad sounds, basses, and leads. It has also been expanded with music production functionality.

 

Polyseq is iPolysix's integrated polyphonic step sequencer that provides up to 64 steps for two dedicated synth instances and six poly-based drum instances. Features include sequence mode functionality from Korg's SQ-10 analog sequencer that allows users to play a sequence backward, or play back only the odd or even-numbered steps. 

 

Users can call up either an onscreen keyboard for easy note entry, or two side by side Kaoss Pads that can be controlled simultaneously: one for note entry and one for control over the user's choice of synth parameters. Musical phrases can be generated by rubbing a finger on the Kaoss Pad.

 

Polystage is a platform on which iPolysix users can share their songs. iPolysix users can make their songs available to other users across the globe by uploading their song from the interface. iPolysix users can listen to and rate other user's songs, or collaborate on a remix from rough ideas that have been uploaded. 

 

Similarly, users can share their works via the SoundCloud feature from within the iPolysix app.
