Maintaining its position at the forefront of mobile music apps, KORG now offers you a new style of performance and production with Korg Module for iPad. Ideal for performance and music production, KORG Module is a high-quality sound module app for iPad that contains a sound library over 1 GB. If you have an external MIDI keyboard and an iPad, you can play studio-quality keyboard and grand piano sounds anywhere. You can also use the sounds of KORG Module for the KORG Gadget music production app.
Five dedicated sound engines containing powerful tone
KORG Module has five dedicated sound engines, providing a number of high-quality sounds that can be played back on your iPad using the “NATIVE ENGINE”. These engines feature technology that was developed for KORG’s historic line of workstations and synthesizers including: Acoustic Piano, Electric Piano, Clav, Organ, and Multi. Each display has carefully selected parameters, making it convenient and easy to adjust the sounds. Once you experience the quality of the sounds being produced from the slim body of your iPad, you’ll agree that KORG Module is radically different than anything else currently on the market.
Just connect an external MIDI keyboard (*) to your iPad and launch the app to transform your iPad into a high-quality sound module. It’s easy to set up and start playing immediately, whether you’re in your room, a practice studio, or performing live. KORG Module adopts an open hardware philosophy that allows connection to any MIDI keyboard. In addition to using a KORG MIDI keyboard such as the taktile, microKEY (25-key), or nanoKEY2, you can also use other manufacturer’s MIDI keyboards that can be connected to an iPad. The velocity curve function conforms the sound to your playing dynamics, so you’ll be able to perform comfortably using any MIDI keyboard. Even if you don’t have a MIDI keyboard, you can use the apps on-screen keyboard, phrase function, or MIDI player to play the sounds. The MIDI player can load and play standard MIDI files using the unbeatable sounds of KORG Module for your listening enjoyment.
(*) In order to connect a device that uses a USB connector, you’ll need a separately sold Apple Lightning — USB camera adapter.

You can also use the high-quality KORG Module sounds inside KORG Gadget, the mobile music production app. If you have KORG Module and KORG Gadget, the five tools Salzburg, Montreal, Alexandria, Firenze, and Glasgow are added inside, allowing access the same way as KORG Gadget.

Whether for performance or for production, both of these apps deliver ultimate sound.
Convenient set list function with a PDF/image score viewer and music player
KORG Module provides functions you’ll find convenient in any environment. The set list function provides unified management of all the settings a player needs; it lets you recall the sounds in the ideal order, view music notation, or hear a practice song. The score viewer can load and display an image or PDF file; eliminating the need to carry along a printed music score.You can use the internal camera of your iPad to record and view hand-written memos. There’s also a text edit function that allows the ability to make a note of things to remember during your performance. You can use the music player to select and play a song from the library of the Music app. Since there’s a tempo change function, you can slow down the tempo without changing the pitch in order to practice with greater accuracy or to learn a difficult part.
