Korg recently updated its major iPad music apps to add AudioBus support. In addition to AudioBus, support, though, Korg added an interesting new feature to iElectribe, Beat Flutter.
This video demonstrates how Beat Flutter can be used to add variety to drum sequences.
Other new features in Korg iElectribe v1.6 include: iCloud backup, Retina display support, and Virtual MIDI for MIDI communication between iOS music creation apps.
If you’ve used iElectribe, let us know what you think of it!
iElectribe is available in the App Store.

I keep reading “Beat Fluffer”… I need help.
Sweet Deal 😉 nice morphing sounds
Killer addition – the whole update is an excellent one!
A little bit unpredictable but a very nice addition. Does it need to cover up so many controls though?
anyone know if this update is available yet?
Yes – at least in the US.
Is it possible to export patterns created with beat flutter or is it only for live use and no way to capture?
i just bought ielectribe within the last four days and it was included in the version in bought. i assume you’ll be able to update.
dunno about the exporting. i tried to see if it would record the flutter box’s motions and it doesn’t, which leads me to think that it won’t do what you want—probably just live only . . .
Updated iElectribe to 1.6.0 on iPad 1 (in US) and this feature does not seem to be present. No mention in App Store or on Korg website to indicate if it is or is not functional in iPad 1. Is it? Any iPad 1 users out there tried it?
ipad 1 user reporting, all is good. beat flutter and all. i am in canada though. not sure if that is the difference.
Cool, have fun!!
“Flutter” button to left of synth 1 /2/3/4 section , above “cross” button .
OK…there it is! Thank you! Duh….
The “beat flutter” feature is fun, fun, fun. Excellent performance feature. I love how you can use the “hold” feature of flutter to create remixes of patterns on the fly by touching various spots on the flutter surface. And when you have one you like simply save it as a new template. Very cool!
Also… you can do real-time recordings of your flutter performances and export them.
You start to wonder how much of todays IDM is self-made and how much is simply randomized with tools like this…
