A KaossPad-like effect processor, looks quite awesome. It's time for Korg themselves to step up to the plate...

Without being rude, if you look at the pace KORg usually applies to their products, KORG is a few generations of KAOSS products before this kind of functionality arrives. They would have to meet this and surpass it to shine OR slap some of this goodness in a hardware unit. Honestly, right at the moment, I don't know what BEATS THIS, but the same thing in hardware would be attractive.

I dunno, maybe it'd have to have it's own SOUNDS and be able to be controlled/played from an external MIDI controller.
I think that would be a trump card and people have been requesting that from KORG for years now.

On another note, it's wild how the iPad [platform] seems to have invigorated VSTs.
I mean, they were getting pretty boring.

After Effectrix....it was pretty much all downhill.
And the fact that DAWS have been steadily stepping their game up with internal goody-bits.

Goodbye KP3.
(Heading over to the for sale boards now.)

The sync plague is gone in iOS. Question now is how to best get stereo in and out of the ipad3. Alesis?

i picked up an iO Dock for my iPad2 the day the PPG app released and so far I am very happy with the purchase. My only complaint is its lack of a USB input. It has a USB device port for connecting to the computer, but you cannot connect a USB only MIDI controller such as the MS-20ic directly and must use the Dock's MIDI I/O instead. That one minor issue aside, I really like mine, the sound is good and it has added much functionality to the iPad.

From what I see in the demo videos, there isn't anything here that Korg can't do. It seems the effects are rather basic, perhaps comparable to those in the Quad Pad. The effects in the KP3 and the new MiniKP2 are much more complex and interesting. Also, automation of effect motion is already present in the KP3. So yeah, I think Korg would definately be able to create a monster Kaoss Pad surpassing the current offer by elephantcandy. Having said that, I do think this app LiveFX looks awesome.

"..comparable to those in the Quad Pad. The effects in the KP3 and the new MiniKP2.."

Interesting that you say that. I was actually thinking of the Kaossilator :? and the Kaoss iPad app :| .
I didn't even consider them making iPad apps of the other units. Wow.
My bad.

But I do stand my opinion that all updates/advancements/changes/adaptations will happen at a generational pace.
1st Kaossilator says you can make music on the go, but had no save or export function. :o
MicroSAMPLER is awesome- has a sequencer - easy import/export but only ONE ELEMENT can be pitched along the keys :o [patiently awaiting next generation]
iPad electribe! Yay...oh wait. no export on first roll-out :o [waiting for single app with all electribe versions integrated]

And by the way, How do they NOT make a Legacy version of the electribe series?
Arturia definitely has a spy sitting outside of KORG headquarters. They seem to make everything KORG should make, but doesn't.

C'mon.......think about it.
VSTs that ship with a [really nice] MIDI controller for cheap- that's the Arturia Analog Experience, which is a really affordable [and stripped down] KORG Legacy.

The Arturia Spark IS the KORG electribe Legacy. One controller, all the modeled electribes as software VSTs.

And the MiniBrute is the Analog knob box that KORG should have made years ago.
And to get back on topic, this company has pretty much made a Koass Pad App that takes advantage of the FULL iPAD screen- unlike the KORG app.

So far, KORG's best app (IMHO) is the iMS20.
That's a lot of action in one app.
