What's New in Version 2.3.0
● Optimized for iOS 7 design
● Some improvements and bug fixes
Excellent introduction to iOS music
There are a couple bad reviews I'd like to debunk.
First since this app is being compared to the hardware versions I'd say that for the price point the iKaossilator is an excellent value when compared to the Kaossilator Pro and the mini KP.
The iOS app has a few options which rival the hardware. Such as saving an unlimited number of patterns, importing custom samples and loops, and the best reason is 64 steps. Also it does support Audiobus.
Whether or not the iKaossilator is a Pro instrument is really a moot point when it's an opinion wrapped in misinformation.
If you're new to ios music or if you've always wanted the real hardware but found it too expensive this is a fully capable app.
I'd feel better giving 20 bucks to a drunk on the street. I'd have just as much fun getting drunk on $20, and the fun would last just as long as I had with this app.
I recently purchased a korg sv1 and a korg mini kaoss pad 2, and was very pleased with both. I have high hopes for the app, but it needs some serious feedback and development. The samples are cool, and it's very easy to use, but unless you're a cheap DJ at your local frat party... this app is not for you. It's not designed to act like the instrument it's based on.
If you're a stoner and the internet is out, you're gonna want this app. If you're a musician and want to create stuff, pony up the money for the real deal.
It's shocking that a company like Korg would release this crappy app. It's NOT even comparable to the real Kaosillator. It doesn't have the same sounds or presets. The audio quality is marginal at best. The output level is low compared to any other respectable audio app.
It has WIST.....big deal. How about audiobus support? Is that asking too much for a $20 app??
This app is overpriced and underdeveloped. Even at the introductory price of $10 it's still too much. I would have not been so disappointed for .99 as that's all it's worth.
Save your money!!
