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. We’ve also carefully ensured ideal playability and designed the system for ultra-low latency. Once you experience the quality of the sounds being produced from the slim body of your iPad, you’ll agree that Module is radically different than anything else currently on the market.

*** With just an iPad/iPhone and the new microKEY, you can enjoy great sound anywhere ***

KORG Module and the microKEY are the best possible combination for a mobile performance environment. With the new microKEY which supports a damper, or the microKEY Air which provides a wireless connection via Bluetooth MIDI, your iPad can transform into a high-quality sound module. In your room, in a practice studio, or performing on stage,, it’s easy to set up and immerse yourself in a superb playing experience wherever you are. Of course you can also use any MIDI keyboard that can connect to your iPad via Apple Lightning – USB camera adapter. 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 for your listening enjoyment.

PPG Infinite Adds Parameter Automation
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

At the end of the 70s Wolfgang Palm developed wavetable synthesis. This was very successful and used by many synthesizer companies in the 80s and 90s. But this technology has its limitations. The main reason is that all sounds are harmonic. In nature this does not happen very often. Many sounds like a piano string have small offsets from the harmonic frequencies. This is even stronger in sounds like bells or percussion.

Infinite overcomes this limitation. The frequencies of the overtones created by Infinite can be totally freely defined. So the sounds it produces are totally free in the frequencies of their overtones. This means that each partial wave can have an arbitrary frequency. Moreover it is possible to move these overtones independently during the duration of a note. Another important part of most natural sounds is noise. Be it a flute or when a drumstick hits the drumhead – and this all can be reproduced in Infinite. Furthermore the noise source can be used to modulate the tonal part which results in very powerful effects. Besides these new digital features, we still have the typical 24db Lowpass filter, 2 VCA with stereo out and effects. All this is controlled by 10 envelopes, 4 LFOs and a modulation matrix.

What’s new

Envelope edit mode – with all points and bend curves
3D edit – Track select and trace can both be active
Stability issues
iPad Pro compatibility issues
AU extension – Parameter automation
AU extension – All notes off command

Key Features:
• New system which can synthesize harmonic and inharmonic sounds
• Morpher – X/Y controller which morphes 5 user selectable sine resources
• Noiser – X/Y controller morphing 3 noise resources and performing modulations
• Molder – acts as a digital filter with any amaginable filter sweeps
• Two detail editor pages for the Sine resources featuring a 3D display
• Import WTS and TCS files from the iPad WaveGenerator and WaveMapper
• Import Phonem utterances and use them in the Infinite Molder
• Versatile matrix system – allowing 16 sources to control 40 parameters
• 10 Envelopes, for control of filter sweeps, waveform, noise and many modulations
• 4 LFOs which can be freely routed via the matrix
• Delay/Reverb effect
• Overdrive/Distortion effect
• A/B compare your edited sounds
• AU extension – run multiple Infinite instances in AU hosts
• IAA – inter-app audio support
• Audiobus 2 with statesaving
• Export audio to AudioShare
• Preset browser with new listing filters
• Directly accessible context help for each module
• Freely configurable schematic keypads
• 4 Keypads play modes: Poly, Mono, Legato and Multitrigger
• 4 MIDI modes: Omni, Poly, Mono, and Voice-Per-Channel

Breathless MIDI Controller
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Breathless MIDI Controller is a new kind of musical instrument with a configurable fingering system that uses four fingers of each hand. The default fingering is familiar to recorder, flute or sax players, the main difference is that octave change is done by moving the iPad forward. Another big difference is that you do not blow, but the lateral movement changes the expression.

Grid Music Generative Music Sequencer
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Grid Music is a generative step sequencer. It makes music by conducting pulses between cells, which can play notes, modulate the synthesized sound, or emit pulses at regular intervals. Pulses can change direction randomly at intersections, creating random melodies and timbre. The fixed grid is designed for direct manipulation and is easy to use on devices big and small.

FEATURES

• Patterns are easy to edit and can be composed live. Create a tune in a few taps. Alter the structure of the sequence in a few more.

• Pitch quantization ensures that notes are always in key and makes it simple to create chord progressions.

• The built-in synthesizer can be modulated as part of a pattern. Add an extra dimension to a melody or create a randomized sonic texture.

• Perform songs with perfect timing using synchronized pattern queueing.

• Support for Ableton Link allows Grid Music to play in time with other apps and devices.

• Support for the iOS Files app makes it easy to organize your compositions and access them from multiple devices.
