5/5 stars

Full studio in one program!

My only complaint, because I am new to electronic music, is that the learning curve is quite steep. That said, this is an incredible program. I look forward to learning how to use it to compose songs.

5/5 stars

The real deal. Vintage fatness, and hi quality!

I own and use a lot of iPad music apps. I was a little skeptical that they would be able to recreate this legendary synth workstation properly on an iPad. Korg did it!
The sounds it produces are outstanding. Deep, bright, rich, fat Korg sounds. It's all here faithfully replicated with even virtual quarter inch cables.
This is professional quality design. This rig would cost thousands of dollars, and you're getting it all for a tiny sum of $16 on sale. It's worth full asking price already.
To a novice it may look overwhelming, and it might not be the best for a beginner. It is however not difficult to figure out if you have a basic understanding of analog synths, or even synths in general. It certainly is worth taking the time to learn. The capabilities are astounding.
It seems mostly stable, though it did crash on me once.
This is no toy. This is the real thing for serious synthesizer enthusiasts and musicians.

4/5 stars

Great... Just one glitch

This is a great app. However, I have found that the knobs are very sensitive and will typically drop to zero before adjusting smoothly. In comparison, the moog filtatron app is flawless. Please fix this.
