Description: The Korg iKaossilator is an iPhone and iPad app version of their successful line of Kaoss products.
The Korg iKaossilator is one of those apps that has made the iPad and iPhone such a great control surface for musicians. It might have taken a few updates to get everything to sparkle (import user samples for one) but the simplicity and end results speak for themselves. Of course it has come from Korg and of course it is an emulation of another great instrument, but I don’t think anyone other than Korg could have brought out a product like this. And they continue to bring out the best apps. Just look at the iPolysix and the iMS-20 for examples of apps done right.
To make an app that will appeal to as many people as possible, you have to have an easy to understand interface and then amazing preset sounds. It is the preset sounds everything is judged by initially. The loops are great, grouped together in their own style and color. Synth leads are yellow, Bass is blue, noise is green, etc. They all come together seamlessly. You will be making music easily and without fuss. Once you’ve done with the preset stuff, import your own and let the fun begin!
