KORG iM1

Posted by Mikers On June - 1 - 2015 1 COMMENT

Korg fans rejoice! One of the all time classic hardware synths of the 80s has made its way onto iPad. Get it while it’s on sale!!

screen480x480 (13)Since it went on sale in 1988 the legendary M1 music workstation rapidly achieved record-breaking sales, becoming a mainstay of the music scene from the late 1980s and beyond. The common element of electronic instruments that have left their name in history is that they had a unique sound that was difficult if not impossible to replicate. Sounds such as the “M1 Piano” is instantly recognizable and have appeared on countless hit records over many years, and yet these are sounds that could only be produced by the M1. And that’s what you can now have on your iPad!

● A faithful reproduction of the original M1 Sound
The PCM data provides the library of the original M1. For the hardware, we analyzed the circuit diagram of the original design, and completely replicated it in software down to the last detailed parameters. Engineers with an exhaustive knowledge of the M1 made careful adjustments in order to obtain the sound of the original unit, something that cannot be obtained simply by sampling the original sounds.

● A continued evolution of the M1
Not content with simply reproducing the original, iM1 provides further evolutionary developments. Synth parts now have the Filter Resonance that was requested at the time of the original. The effect parts, originally consisting of only two effects, have been powered-up to 18 effects. The user interface has also been refreshed with additions such as a KAOSS pad. iM1 is the ultimate version of the KORG M1.

● A gigantic library encompassing 3,300 sounds and 34 cards*
In addition to all 19 of the ROM cards originally released for the M1, iM1 also covers the sounds of the M1EX which expanded the internal PCM of the M1, as well as the sounds of the T-series which appeared as an evolution of the M1. There’s also “BEST OF M1”, a selection of 100 great M1 programs. The new “Smart Sound Browser” makes it quick to find the desired sound. You can also view the sounds ranked by how often they are selected by iM1 users around the world.
*with all the expansion card installed via in-app purchase

● KAOSS pad lets anybody perform
iM1 features a KAOSS pad from the popular KAOSSILATOR, allowing you to perform intuitively just by touching the screen. By using the dual KAOSS pads to play phrases or adjust the sound, even people who are not accustomed to keyboard instruments or knowledgeable about synthesizers can enjoy performing the iM1. There’s also a conventional keyboard, as well as the “Smart Keyboard”, which lets you specify a scale setting and play phrases with a single finger.

● Use with KORG Gadget for song production
iM1 can be used together with Gadget, the music production DAW app that won the App Store Best App of 2014 award in Japan. If both apps are installed, you can use iM1 as a sound module within Gadget, taking advantage of the program sounds in iM1 for music production. iM1 also supports Audiobus and Inter-App Audio, so it can also be used for GarageBand etc.

● Connect a MIDI keyboard and use as a sound module
In addition to enjoying iM1 on its own, you can connect a USB MIDI keyboard* via a Lightning adaptor and play the iM1 as an external sound module. You can easily take along an even more powerful workstation sound module as part of your iPad-based compact mobile system.
*microKEY-25, nanoKEY2 etc.

● Interchangeable with the KORG Legacy Collection and the original M1
Sounds that you create in iM1 can be sent from your iPad via iTunes to a Mac/PC. If you have the Legacy Collection M1, you can use those sounds in a DAW. Data compatibility is maintained not only with the plug-in but also with the original M1; this means that you can transfer data in system exclusive format from the original M1. It’s a dream come true! from Korg has made its way onto iPad, and it sounds every bit as authentic as the original beast of a synth.

Mini review – midimux and audiomux

Posted by Mikers On April - 28 - 2015 1 COMMENT

midimux-running-under-iosLaunched within just a few weeks of each other, these specularly bland looking apps are set to change your music making world for the better if you’ve battled with the chore of getting your iOS music apps to talk to your desktop computer.

In short, these aptly titled apps allow you to send either MIDI or audio between your iPad or iPhone and a computer using the standard USB lightening cable or 30-pin cable you’d use for syncing, etc. So you can pack away your MIDI and audio interfaces, things just got a whole lot easier.

The hardest thing you’ll need to do is download the small server software on your computer which needs to run in the background for these apps to talk to your computer. Currently this is available for Mac and PC operating systems.

midimux offers transmission of MIDI data between iPad music apps and your computer. So for example, you might like to use your favourite MIDI sequencing software on your computer to command any number of synth apps residing on your iPad. No problem at all. And visa versa, you can use something like Genome MIDI Sequencer on your iPad to control the software sound modules and MIDI hardware connected to your computer. No problem either.

The magic happens by creating mirrors of the connected MIDI devices and custom virtual ports. I don’t pretend to even start knowing how that is even possible, but it works, and the end result is a smoother experience for anyone who likes working in MIDI across both platforms.

screen480x480 (3)Unsurprisingly, audiomux offers much the same tasty treats only, it’s designed to transmit audio between your iPad and computer with much the same ease.

Built on the foundation of audiobus, audiomux lets you can fire up as many as 16 iOS music making apps simultaneously, and send their independent audio signals to a waiting DAW on your computer. And no surprise, you can do the same thing in verse, and send the audio sources from your computer to an audio recording app on your iPad.

Note, Audiomux only currently supports Mac. Hopefully Windows gets some love in the future.

My experience so far has been good, with no latency issues, and music apps not playing nicely with either midimux or audiomux.

Whether you need one or both of these apps, they are cheaper to buy as a bundle for $9.99

AUX B

Posted by Mikers On April - 26 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

Ok, so this isn’t actually a music making app, but I still think it’s a unique idea to promote an event.

screen480x480 (1)At the B-Sides Music Festival in Lucerne, Switzerland tons of audio equipment is connected with cables. If only one of these cables is not plugged in correctly, the loudspeakers remain silent.

In AUX B you are tasked with connecting the right cables. Bring the music through the different components to the loudspeaker to make it to the next level. If you complete all 80 levels until 15 May 2015, you have the chance of winning 1 of 3 festival tickets for the B-Sides Music Festival.
