Gadget news – Korg announce Mac version of their mega iOS electronic music production tool

I generally don't do too many 'coming soon....' items here on the Music App Blog as I'd rather wait until something is actually available.

iWaveStation launched – Korg bring another classic synth to the iOS platform

It's only a few weeks since Korg launched the very impressive ARP ODYSSEi synth on iOS....  a software recreation of the classic ARP Odyessy analog synth from the 1970s. iOS synth-heads have lapped the ODYSSEi up in their droves and it is still available at the discounted launch price of just UK£14.99/US$19.99.

This hardware synth was first introduced in 1972 as a response to Moog's relatively affordable (US$1500!) Minimoog.
