LiveFX Now Available – Try It For Free!
When Korg began exploring possibilities with their x/y touch pad configurations, I bet they never imagined actual touch screen devices being used in the same manner. If there was ever a situation where the iOS really shines form its touch screen technology it comes from a pad where expression is never exact – it comes from an x/y pad. This is great for app developers who want to explore the use of touch gesture technology, but it is a little unfortunate for the guys over at Korg who attempted to explore the idea first. Ribbon synthesizers have touched (no pun intended) on this idea as well but never fully explored it with an additional axis.
A neat little app for the iPad is set to be released and maybe even take over where the Kaoss Pad 3 left off. Like the KP3, it can control multiple FX at one time and has the ability to lock (toggle) effects or keep them as one shot functions. Unlike the KP3, it features auto BPM detection, which sounds like a good idea assuming it works well. It also has been integrated with Audiobus, so it can be chained with other iPad app at the same time.
