Reader Karl Scholz demonstrates beatmaking using the Korg Monotron and the WerkBench live sampling sequencer for iPad.
“WerkBench for iPad is a perfect companion for this quirky analog synth,” says Scholz. ”All sounds came from the Monotron and were recorded into WerkBench in real-time.”
WerkBench is available in the App Store for $6.99.
