The iPad's future revealed in this wicked music creation app
Korg Electribe Review
by on June 5, 2010
iPad apps are going to cost a little more than their iPhone counterparts, but when they boast this much functionality, who’s counting those extra beans?
The iElectribe is the first in a new generation of apps that could give the iPad a real home as a music creation tool. At £5.99, for music lovers, it’s going to be a drop in the ocean.
Created by effects masters Korg, this is a fully function digital beat making suite, with the added advantage of being able to use the iPad’s multitouch to make more than one change at a time, twisting knobs and selecting tempos rather than pointing and clicking with a mouse.
In effect, offering the functionality of a piece of physical hardware. Patterns can then be saved and played at will. It certainly saves carting a full suite around with you.
The rhythm synthesiser offers tonnes of tracks to work within, from all genres, with the capacity to create infinite patterns on top of that.
There’s pitch, speed, depth and delay controls and a good deal of what’s served-up by the successful physical Electribe MX suites that’ll save you around £400.
If this is a sign of things to come, then music creation on the iPad is going to be a very serious business.
