Tune-in Tuesday: New Music Made with KORG Gadget on an iPad

KORG Gadget

Korg's Gadget is one of those apps that makes you realise you really do have the power of a personal computer in your hands when holding the iPad.

With emulations of 15 different synths and drum machines, Gadget lets you combine them together to make new electronic sounds. You can find out more about Gadget on Korg's site.

Made with Gadgets

So this time our Tune-in Tuesday feature highlights some of the tracks we have enjoyed listening to over on Soundcloud, all created on the iPad with Korg Gadget:

Multiplex (Korg Gadget 5) by Two Hawkes

In the rain (Korg Gadget) by Mulperi

Inception (Original Club Mix) by Sensadark

Turner (Korg Gadget + MorphWiz and BIAS) by Marcus Padrini

Dubfunk (Korg Gadget) by Groovemaster303

At the Kingston Arcades (Korg Gadget for iOS) by ChrisE1G

Had to sneak in one Chiptune at least.

Over to You

We hope you liked listening to our selection of electro-driven tracks this time around.

You can always explore our Soundcloud group for hundreds of tracks from all genres, we are sure you will find something there you like.

If you would like to share your iPad created sounds (using any iOS app) please feel free to join our group and add your tracks or click on the 'Send us your sounds' link in the sidebar.  Thank you.

'After Dark (Original Club Mix)' by Sensadark, using iPolysix to great effect

This is just such a great sound! Some really impressive work here, especially from around 4:20. Catch all of Sensadark's work over at SoundCloud.

KORG produce a great range of iPad apps, iPolysix is one of its best.

Tune-in Tuesday: Newly Discovered iPad-Made Music

It's about time we did another round-up of some of the tracks we've been listening to over on SoundCloud. Here is this week's trio of tracks. We think they really show off what can be done now with the raft of music creation apps we have on the iPad. See what you think:

'Forever I Know' by onwardvoyageur 

This song is just beautiful and sounds great. Played using a Ukelele, and the Pocket Organ / ThumbJam / GarageBand apps on the iPad, plus (presumably) onwardvoyageur's 6 year old Daughter on piano, we think you'll like it. 

'Thursday, Two PM' by Victor Lams

We're not sure if it is the cute vocals, kooky instruments or just the number of apps used to create this song that makes us love this track, but love it we certainly do. Our only criticism, it's too short, so we have to keep playing it again. Great job and great production Victor!

Apps used by Victor included Meteor Multitrack Recorder, iSequence, SoundPrism ProGrain Science, Beatmaker 2, Animoog and Tabletop.

'Sonic Vibrations (Original Club Mix)' by Sensadark

A change of pace now. Sensadark contacted us to let us know about his tracks on SoundCloud that were all created with Korg's wonderful iMS-20 app and we are glad he did.

This kind of uplifting club sound is just what we need pumping out at full volume on a dark, dreary wet day in England's so-called Summer. We're not so sure our work mates agree, but we're much happier now. Turn it up loud!

Over to you

We hope you enjoyed listening to our picks this week, be sure to leave a comment either here or over on the tracks at SoundCloud and let us know what you think.

As we always say in these posts, we want to hear from you too. So, if you have your own iOS created sounds (preferably with the iPad, but we won't hold you to that) here's how you can get them to us:

  • Join our iPad Creative SoundCloud group then click on the 'Share a Track' button on the group page
  • If you're on a computer, click 'Send us your sounds' at top of the sidebar to the right of your screen --->
  • Leave us a link to your track on SoundCloud in the comments below

We're looking forward to hearing from you soon.
