Korg has rolled out a new update for its iOS Synth App this month which brings with it a wealth of new 80s arcade game sounds thanks to a partnership with game publisher Bandai Namco.
The Korg iOS Synth App includes a chiptune synth which can be used to add 80s-inspired sounds and used to recreate the sound of the sound-generation chips found in the classic Namco arcade machines such as Pac-Man and Galaga.
Check out the video below to learn more about the 80s sounds you will be up to use and create using the latest Korg version 2.5 iOS Synth App.
An unprecedented collaboration between KORG Gadget and BANDAI NAMCO Studios! The mobile music creation app ”KORG Gadget”, which won best mobile music app at Europe’s musical instrument show, Musikmesse 2016, has another major update! The new version 2.5 (codename: Kamata) developed in collaboration with BANDAI NAMCO Studios adds the synthesizer “Kamata” which features a reconstructed “Waveform Memory Sound Generator”, the sound engine that produced so many legendary game sounds in the eighties!
In addition, we have added two more gadgets: “Gladstone”, with genuine drum sounds you can really feel, and “Madrid”, featuring acoustic bass, electric bass and 6 different amps for creating dynamic bass sounds! We have also installed 8 new effects, making it possible to create powerful bass tracks with more flexibility than ever before.
