Mas­ter KRFT

Future Music - - FILTER -

Over re­cent years, the iOS plat­form has be­come a great breed­ing ground for eso­teric mu­sic mak­ing ap­pli­ca­tions that make use of the touch­screen in­ter­face to break free of the tra­di­tional desk­top for­mat. KRFT, from de­vel­oper Stu­dio Am­plify, is one such ap­pli­ca­tion. With a mod­u­lar and fully-cus­tomis­able in­ter­face de­signed around colour­ful geo­met­ric shapes, KRFT com­bines sam­pled drums and in­stru­ments, one-knob ef­fects and a Live-like clip launch­ing work­flow to cre­ate a fun and cre­ative on-the-go mu­sic-mak­ing tool. It’s a great ex­am­ple of an app us­ing the iOS touch­screen to its full cre­ative po­ten­tial.

For that rea­son, it’s ex­cit­ing to see that the lat­est up­date, ver­sion 1.5, adds full MIDI out­put sup­port, al­low­ing it to send MIDI CC mes­sage to be used to con­trol other apps, desk­top soft­ware or even hard­ware. There’s Au­dioBus 3 sup­port too, along with Able­ton Link.

KRFT is avail­able from the App Store, now priced £14.99
