Venerable music gear maker KORG has already brought some very cool audio apps to the iOS universe, and it continues the onslaught with Gadget, a slick, lovely-sounding iPad app with 15 synth devices — each capable of some true sonic mayhem, and all wrapped into a productive sequencing environment. It’s not hard to quickly whip up some pounding electronic dance music (EDM), especially once you get the hang of the interface, but there are significant holes in the slick veneer.
Well, we simply run the gamut this week. We've got apps of all kinds and shapes and sizes and for this device only or that one. Yeah, it's that time again, the weekly round up of the best app sales we've seen and there's some fun in store for you. So what are you waiting for? Get that App Store app fired up and get ready to start tapping.
Is that a synthesizer in your pocket, or is it the Korg Monotron? This little chunk of portable, battery-powered fun can create music and beats on its own, or plugged into your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. It’s $90 at Korg.com, and the lucky winner of our May contest will get one for free.
Finally! Apple has weighed in on all of this new iPad overcharging controversy, and as usual it’s much ado about nothing yet again. Meanwhile, the new iPad has been cleared for sale in China -- though Cupertino is mum on exactly when that will happen. But fear not -- today’s news is all about the new iPad, so read on and find out everything that’s making news for this terrific Tuesday, March 27, 2012.
Sure, the iPad can perform a lot of versatile and impressive tasks, but replacing a $300 drum machine? Believe it -- KORG's iElectribe app mimics the beloved 1999 Electribe-R, offering a stylish digital replication of the iconic machine with a solid touch interface.
