In this video I review and get you started with Gadget by KORG. This is a great app that I am really enjoying, big thanks to KORG for sending this to me. In the video I show you how to get started making a song from scratch. I talk about all the really great features the app has, only downsides seem to be the lack of audio recording, no effects in the mixer, and that you can’t use IAA within the app. all in all it’s a really good app that any type of musician can get use out of. Highly recommend picking it up if you haven’t already.

KORG Module is a high-quality mobile sound module app that’s ideal both for performance and for music production, and features a pro-level high-quality sound library. In addition to the iPad version, it’s now available for iPhone as well. Your iPhone, together with a MIDI keyboard such as the new microKEY, is all you need to easily perform unsurpassed grand piano and studio-quality keyboard sounds anywhere and anytime.
A quick preview of our new app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, Ferrite Recording Studio. Record and edit audio on the go!
Wooji Juice has announced Ferrite Recording Studio for iOS – a new mobile multitrack recording app.
The developers say that Ferrite Recording Studio “makes it fast and easy to record and edit audio on-the-go — while making powerful features like effects and automation available when you need them.”
Ferrite focuses on workflow, with features to speed you up and a clean UI designed to get out of your way.
It works just like a voice memo app, with immediate access to recording. But there’s also a full editing suite to assemble your recordings — and imported clips — into polished final audio.
Radio journalism, podcasts, lecture recordings, audio presentations and more: all made easier with Ferrite Recording Studio tools such as bookmarking, automatic ducking, and silence removal. Enhance your audio with extras like dynamic compression or filtering. And if you really want to get in and sweat the details, Ferrite has a powerful automation system, which can continuously adjust the sound of individual tracks or the final mix.
When you’re done, you can add cover art, show notes or lyrics, and share your projects as standard AAC files — the same high-quality audio format used by the iTunes Store. Send your finished work via popular messaging or file storage services such as email, iCloud or Dropbox — Ferrite supports iOS Sharing Extensions, to make the widest range of services available.
Details on pricing and availability are to be announced.
midiSTEPs is a powerful but fun MIDI step sequencer app that sends MIDI note and CC messages to other music apps and external synthesizers. It was designed to be super easy to use in a way that’s similar to the SH-101 sequencer, where you can just quickly enter a few keyboard notes and you’re ready to hit play. At the same time, it also incorporates many ideas from other classic and modern sequencers, allowing you to set control values per step, mute and skip existing steps, switch between multiple patterns and parts, sync and link patterns in various ways, and modify your sequences.
midiSTEPs was designed from the ground up as a touch-based iPad sequencer app, so it’s super easy and intuitive to enter, edit and play sequences.
