The screen of the iPad is divided vertically in two halves, allowing you to simultaneously control two types of content-“song creation” and “sound creation”. by placing the current Gadget on the bottom of the screen while always showing the sequencing environment up top.-This ensures that your creative production flow is not interrupted.

Even if you typically use a computer or sophisticated music production equipment, KORG Gadget is an ideal partner that will inspire you from a different perspective. KORG Gadget is also an ideal choice as a second DAW that’s easy to take with you along anywhere.

*** Share songs to the GadgetCloud and connect to users around the world. ***
Songs that you create using KORG Gadget can be shared on “GadgetCloud,” a music sharing site for KORG Gadget users worldwide. By exchanging songs between mobile musicians around the world, you can communicate in ways that bypass language barriers, and also improve your skill as a creative artist. This is a music production space that’s fun to use; you can submit your songs for selection as tracks recommended by KORG, enter various contents, and use the ranking system. You can also upload from KORG Gadget directly to any social networking service such as SoundCloud, Facebook, or Twitter, sending your tracks wherever you like.

GadgetCloud is based on SoundCloud, the cloud service that’s supported by creative artists world-wide. You will need a SoundCloud account.

***A fusion of cutting-edge iOS technology; a mobile studio that continues to evolve ***
By connecting an external MIDI keyboard via the Camera Connection Kit, you can play the 15 synthesizers in Gadget from a real keyboard. A wide range of iOS music technology is also supported, including AudioCopy, and WIST. There’s a roadmap for future updates that will add new gadgets and support audio tracks, further perfecting the system as a mobile music production studio.

screen480x480 (1)VOSIS is a synthesizer that uses scanned synthesis of greyscale image pixel data from photos or live video input. It is also a tool for image audification/sonification and visual music performance.

Visit www.imagesonification.com for technical details and demo video.

(Working on Audiobus support- coming very soon!)

– Simply touch anywhere on an image to play sounds with the ADSR envelope
– Toggle LOOP and double-tap to add a looped region
– 6 voice plyphonly (3 touch regions and 3 looped regions)
– Press IMG to select new image from photo library
– Press CAM to use live video and toggle between front and rear cameras
– PAN toggle enables stereo panning depending on horizonal image position
– LEVEL modifies the brightness of pixels and MASK is a level bit-reduction
– CUTOFF provides low-pass and high-pass filters
– THRESH filter is useful to accentuate differences between image regions
– SCAN RATE changes the ammout of time corresponding to an image region
– BACKGROUND controls the opacity of the source image, no effect on sound
– Double-tap the upper-right corner to show/hide the GUI
– VIBRATO uses the accelerometer’s roll to modulate frequency
– REVERB toggles a Lexicon emulation reverb mix and decay
– TUNING creates major or minor chords with multiple touch voices
