Great expectations not met...yet

Dee Bully

I had great expectations for this synth...having bought lots of others from the App Store...I thought and hoped that getting one which replicates a blast from the past would wow me with a fantastic range of sounds, samples, tracks and effects. And, although I have a long way to go learn this synth...it would be nice to have a much bigger range of starter sounds, drums, tracks and effects.

Fun

Good old fashioned fun at a good price, thank you korg, make more apps please.

Brilliant!!!

I was cynical about this, at first... thinking there would be little more to it than gimmicky virtual patch chords, a la Reason, a bit of faffing about with knobs, and a whimpy sound. I was so wrong, this is very deep and incredibly flexible, mostly due to the addition of the sequencer. Absolutely not for the novice synthesist... but for those experienced, it can be very, very rewarding... and the sound quality? Superb! My only criticism, if I had to find one, is that editing "drum" sounds (which don't necessarily need to be drum sounds at all btw) outside of the sequencer gives you a false impression of their sound due to the additional sound modifiers (pitch, gate etc.) within the sequencer itself, modifiers which aren't applied when in edit mode. This is irritating, and means you have to kind of guess what your changes will sound like when you leave edit mode and go back to the sequencer. If there was a way to edit sounds in the context of the sequencer, and not in isolation, but also in the context of "the mix" then this would be a perfect, and amazing app... but honestly, I'm not sure I can think of a way to implement this anyway, unless there was simply a button to activate or deactivate this kind of edit "mode".
