Korg clas­sics for iOS

Computer Music - - Korg Legacy Session -


It might seem a strange in­clu­sion when com­pared to all the hoary old synths fea­tured in this ar­ti­cle, but be­lieve it or not, the orig­i­nal Korg Elec­tribe ER-1 groove box is now eigh­teen years old! Korg were among the first big com­pa­nies to de­velop for iPad, and the iElec­tribe came out al­most im­me­di­ately upon the tablet’s re­lease.


Like the iElec­tribe, the iMS-20 was re­leased while most would-be users were still wait­ing to re­ceive their pre-or­dered iPads from Ap­ple. Com­bin­ing a spot-on recre­ation of the orig­i­nal along­side a se­quencer in­spired by Korg’s SQ-10, the iMS-20 could even be con­trolled via the USB con­troller for Korg’s Legacy MS-20 desk­top plugin.


The most re­cent clas­sic Korg to get the iOS treat­ment, the iWaves­ta­tion may be the most ob­vi­ous, with the orig­i­nal’s vec­tor joy­stick just beg­ging to be put un­der touch­screen con­trol. Bet­ter still, the in­ter­face is as in­tu­itive as one could ex­pect a Waves­ta­tion’s could be, and there’s even a stel­lar ver­sion in Korg’s Gad­get app.
