Korg has announced that the KORG Kaossilator app ($19.99 value) for Android and iOS devices is free for a limited time.
The KORG Kaossilator app (iKaossilator on iOS) is an emulation of the hardware Kaossilator, a portable touch-based instrument manufactured by Korg. It is a complex dynamic phrase synthesizer that is fully optimized for touch input control. Normally priced at $19.99, the app can be dowlnoaded completely free od charge from Google Play and the App Store for a limited time only.
This is the full version of the software. The freely downloadable app isn’t feature-limited in any way.
In a similar move, Moog released the Minimoog Model D Synthesizer app for iOS as a free download yesterday. Both companies have decided to offer these apps as a free download to help people pass time during the Coronavirus outbreak.
Here is Korg’s comment on the situation:
To help you with a musical way to occupy your mind we have decided to make the Kaossilator app for iOS and Android free of charge for a limited time.
I haven’t used the KORG Kaossilator app yet so I can’t comment on its quality, but it does have a very decent 4.2 rating on the Google Play store. The app features a unique XY pad control interface that is optimized for touch gestures. It includes 150 preset sounds designed for popular music styles like EDM, hip-hop, techno, and more.
