◆ 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 ***

Ok, Folks... now we're going PRO! :)
UPDATE2: This KRFT gem is the gift that just keeps on giving. I got on board early and loved it from launch, but it just keeps getting better and better. Now with a very fine implementation of midi out, this brilliantly designed Modular Instrument and custom controller for iOS apps and/or external hardware, as well as external DAWS... is clearly a unique beast that has landed squarely in professional music production territory.
Superb techical support as well!
UPDATE: It's astonishing how much this already brilliant app has evolved in such a short period of time. Taking it from very fun, intuitive audio composition tool, to legitimate professional software, while retaining core ease of use.
This app has struck such an incredible balance between sound quality, intuitive user interface, the latest tech, and ease of use.
The developers of this app are very active and obviously committed to taking this app to brand new territory.
I also think KRFT's piano roll is the best and most pleasurable to use of all the iOS sound apps I have. Bravo, and highly recommended!!!
If you enjoy creating music on your iDevice, KRFT is a must have. There are a lot of apps that replicate the traditional DAW experience or emulate hardware synthesizers, but apps few offer a new way to interact with music that is only possible on the iOS platform. KRFT is one of those apps that will have you thinking about composition in a whole new way. This is what iOS music making is all about and why IMO it's the future of music production.
Absolutely fantastic and so liberating.
I wrote a long gushing review for the previous version, which is gone?? Oh well, probably no on would have read it all anyway!
Suffice to say that I have bought just about every major music making app there is, and KRFT is definitely in the top 5 or 10. I completely love it! The only thing that has been limiting it from becoming my number one compositional and performance tool has been my reluctance to limit myself to the (admittedly good) internal instruments.
Now they've added Midi-out and Audiobus 3 support and the doors are flung wide open! I know already I'm going to be spending more time with KRFT for composing than any other tool. It's that good.
Top notch app and wonderful, responsive developers! :)
