Korg has announced another app for iOS, iKaossilator for iPhone, which is available now in the App Store.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
Korg has revolutionized the musical instrument world with their dynamic line of Kaoss products, using an intuitive X-Y pad to provide expressive musical control.
The palm-sized KAOSSILATOR synthesizer placed modern music-making in the hands of thousands of musicians and non-musicians alike. Now that same excitement has been captured in the iKaossilator app for iPhone!
iKaossilator for iPhone Highlights:
Play sounds by simply stroking, tapping, or rubbing the screen with your finger
Bold Visual Effects move along with your performance and add excitement
150 diverse built-in sounds cover any style of dance music
Scale/Key settings allow anyone to perform with musical precision
Easily create tracks with the loop sequencer using up to five parts
Control loops in real time for DJ-Style live performances
WIST capability allows wireless sync-start with other apps such as the iElectribe
iKaossilator is currently available for $9.99, half off the regular price.

Korg has teamed up with the virtual band Gorillaz to create a new beatbox for the iPad: The Korg iELECTRIBE Gorillaz Edition.
While retaining the intuitive beat-making features of the iElectribe, the Gorillaz Edition is a new machine customized to generate Gorillaz samples from their fourth album The Fall. The iElectribe Gorillaz Edition features: 128 new sounds created by Gorillaz; and 64 ready-to-use pre-programmed patterns by the sound team Gorillaz, Stephen Sedgwick, and Korg.
Unfortunately, the Gorillaz sounds appear to not be cleared for commercial use. Korg notes, “ Commercial use of the works created by using this application is subject to the copyright clearance from right holders.”
A “limited run of 10,000 units” is available in the App Store for US $9.99.
We’d prefer to see this less “limited” and more copyright cleared, but it’s sure to be a hit for Korg, anyway.
