Here’s what the developers have to say about MKSensation:

The MKSensation is a player’s live gigging module designed to give you the bread and butter sounds needed for a live session, gig, church service, or studio session. The layout, ease of use, sliders, and simple functionality is what has made our PC version so successful. There is no fancy splash page and it’s not rattled with hundreds of sounds. It’s designed to be loaded and played for instant layering and inspiration. You could could call this your instant rompler full of the sounds you would use all of the time and given our reputation of sampling, you know the sounds will be very warm, thick, and realistic. You won’t even believe that these sounds are coming from your iPad!

The app is available as a free download, with a limited number of sounds, so you can try it out and see how it works. An in-app purchase is available that unlocks the full range of sounds:

  1. this is a cool idea. I hope between this and Korg’s M1 app we get more of these types of apps, hopefully official ones too. i’d love to have a Roland JD app, or an Emu rompler app. Hell, lets go a step further and refresh the old samplers too. We’ve already got an MPC app, how about a Kurzweil sampler app, or an S3000XL app?

    1. There is the Sound Canvas, if you like these kinds of apps. (And I prefer it.)

      Personally I would like these kinds of apps stop right here, and start getting them JD, or Emu -kinds of apps instead.

  2. We have FM synthesis covered (DX emulations),
    We have PD synthesis covered (CZ emulations),
    We have lots of VA synthesis covered (Moogs, Korgs, etc.etc.).

    We don’t yet have LA synthesis covered – Roland D-50 / D-550
    We don’t yet have Roland JD-800 / JD-990 (ROM based synthesis)!
    … Come on Roland, please get with the program and the iOS platform.
