KORG Mono/Poly With Midi Learn
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , ,

The Mono/Poly analog synthesizer appeared in 1981 at the same time as the acclaimed Polysix. Not only was it a fat-sounding four-VCO monophonic synthesizer, it featured a revolutionary design that allowed it to also be used as a four-voice polyphonic synthesizer, which helped cement its legendary status.

The long-awaited “KORG iMono/Poly” iPad/iPhone app completely reproduces all features of the original Mono/Poly. Four VCOs and a rich array of modulation allow a wide range of detailed sound design. New functionality such as two multi-effects units and eight virtual patches are also provided. In addition, the seamless integration that you expect from KORG’s iOS apps will fit perfectly into your music making process. The Mono/Poly has been reborn for today’s world, bringing you a unique and legendary sound.

What’s New in Version 1.0.1
• MIDI CC# Learn has been added.
• Other improvements have been made to enhance stability.

Cinematic Fugue Machine Jam
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

PerplexOn took the iPad outside on a rainy day for jamming with a minimalist piano sequence, combined with the sound of rain and a touch of gritty synth. Controlled with a Korg nanoKONTROL.

Apps in use:

Fugue Machine | multi-playhead sequencer – Alexandernaut

iGrand Piano – IK Multimedia

iSEM Synthesizer – Arturia

Eos 2 – Audio Damage, Inc.

AUM – Audio Mixer – Kymatica (Jonatan Liljedahl)

BeatMaker 3 – INTUA

While iGrand Piano was used on location, the piano track was replaced with the beautiful and more nuanced Una Corda Piano by Native Instruments afterwards. This was done by recording the actual midi output of Fugue Machine live with Beatmaker 2 in the background and then exporting this midi track to the DAW.

This track is a free download:

You can do this with the current version of Elastic Drums already, but the upcoming update will improve Midi Learning to do such setups also a lot.
