Koushion iPad Midi Controller

Koushion iPad Sequencer

Time to ditch my Tenori-On =)

New iPad MIDI Controller called Koushion. Giving the Tenori-On a run for it’s money.

Koushion (literally “grid sound” in Japanese) is a new kind of MIDI controller for your iPad. While it looks deceptively similar to a simple Tone Matrix, this is no toy. This video demonstration was completely improvised.

Compatible MIDI Connections:

– Automatic integration with other apps via Core MIDI virtual ports

– Control of external MIDI devices via Core MIDI-compatible devices such as the iRig MIDI and Alesis I/O dock

– MIDI over Wi-Fi via Core MIDI network sessions (we DO NOT suggest this method due to latency issues)

Core Features:

– 16 steps per scene – up to 128 steps in chain mode

– 8 scenes with independent MIDI channel per scene, independent key, quantization, and playback mode

– MIDI clock send/receive

– 4 playback modes – single, simultaneous, chain, rebound

– Scale – switch between any major, minor, pentatonic, or chromatic scale

– Adjustable step quantization – 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, and 1/32

– Quantized scene switching

– Tap to set tempo – great for syncing with a live band

– Velocity and gate control

– Monophonic drawing mode – only allows one note per step; great for programming leads

– Optional Dark Theme – reduces eyestrain when working in low-light environments

Kushion is available for $7.99

  • iPad Loops is a music app blog dedicated to exposing the best iPad apps for iOS musicians, producers, and Djs. This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements. My work is published by Magix Soundtrack Loops, Sample Logic, Pakotec, Loopmasters, Acoustica, Xmix, Sound Trends, and many more.
