Brilliant fun, intensely creative, and universally accessible. A compelling musical toy.

Korg iKaossilator Review

by on November 4, 2011

Korg’s real-hardware Kaossilator is a hugely appealing device. Its touch surface means that anyone can start painting tunes with the part-beatbox, part-synth, part-sequencer device, and equally ensures its suitability as an iOS app. This iPhone incarnation is about as faithful to the real thing as it’s possible to get, and much cheaper to boot.

Let’s be bold: iKaossilator isn’t just a bargain, it’s better than its physical compatriot. The extended interface means all of its features are quickly accessible with far more ease than the hardware can offer. A few tools are stupidly tucked away – ‘Clear Current Part’, for example, should be in a more prominent position – but overall the interface is near-flawless.

There’s even a brilliant visual pattern selector, where you can mix and match loops from 50 built-in projects (or those that you’ve saved), all guaranteed to be in tune thanks to the the global scale tool. And don’t forget WIST support, which means you can match tempo and jam along with compatible apps on your other iOS devices. It only lacks the ability to export rendered projects, but as a live tool it can’t be beaten.
