◆ A Modular Instrument for Music Production ◆
KRFT is a modular instrument for expressive music production that we built to challenge the two decade old paradigm of the multi-track DAW.
Designed from the ground up with a focus on live experimentation and expressive interactions, KRFT will inspire you to make music that would normally be out of reach.
Rather than being confined to a fixed interface KRFT lets you create a surface that suits your musical needs whether you're building an experimental groove box or composing an entire track.
Use it standalone with its powerful internal audio engine or with your studio & MIDI enabled gear, such as Ableton Live or Logic Pro X.
◆ Produce & perform from one expressive interface ◆
KRFT is a canvas for your musical ideas that can be controlled and interpreted on the fly. Recorded loops, custom samples, dials and more can all be controlled from one unified interface. This structure lends itself to live play, each performance being unique and instinctive.
◆ Craft your masterpiece – piece by piece ◆
Build your canvas from musical cells, each shape with a different behaviour. Loops provide the core of your composition and dials, morphs and fills allow you to add flair and excitement. Group cells to give your track structure ― build as much or as little as you need.
◆ Tweak and refine your sound ◆
KRFT is all about customizability. Editing your recordings or sequencing notes is quick and easy in the Matrix and fine adjustments to the sounds and cell interactions can be edited directly from within the app – no need for external software.
◆ Control other apps, software and hardware ◆
- Send MIDI from KRFT to any DAW e.g. Ableton & Logic Pro
- Sync up with other devices and apps using Ableton Link
- AudioBus Audio & MIDI support
- Use KRFT as a source with Inter-App Audio
- Import your own samples and export your recordings to other apps
*** iPhone 5, iPad 4, iPad Mini Retina or newer supported ***

I've only been playing around with this for a day but I've already started creating the most interesting compositions I've made for a long time. It really puts you into a different frame of mind and is great fun to experiment with. The synth engine is actually very good sounding although I have not found a way to save my own presets? I'm sure this will come and I'm excited for future developments of this app. The developers are very talented.
MIDI out take this to the next level. Although the inbuilt synth is very good and I will continue to use it, the app is now unlimited in its sound potential! In additional to the dials sending values you can also use the morph controllers LFO to modulate any automatable parameter on a midi synth so the control you have is basically unlimited.
The more I use this I've come to realise the linear sequencing in most DAW's is a creativity killer. With this app you can retain your musical state of mind and easily experiment with variations to build your composition.
The next step in this epic saga, Midi out. Its not just there its also integrated into AB3. This makes an amazingly simple setup if you use AB3. So, now we have the best of both worlds, an amazing nonlinear workspace and now a midi controller. KRFT has a very intuitive layout, if you get tuck there are videos on their comprehensive website. If you have any doubts go there before you buy, go there and you will see the same level of quality you see in their UI. Today Im very happy to be an iOS music maker.
Ive never given five stars before!
With the addition of Midi out KRFT has become my favourite sequencer. It is a lot of fun, very easy to use and leads to a different approach to making music. The KRFT synth sounds excellent as well. I can't rate it highly enough!!!
