KORG iMS-20: Transform your iPad into a complete analog synth studio!
A complete recreation of the legendary MS-20 analog synth

Ever since the MS-20 first went on sale way back in 1978, this monophonic synthesizer has enjoyed unbroken popularity for its thick and solid sound, aggressive analog filters, and inexhaustible potential for creative patching – as well as for its distinctive design. Using the same proprietary CMT (Component Modeling Technology) that Korg used to create their Legacy Collection software, the KORG iMS-20 completely replicates every aspect of the legendary original MS-20; the 2 Voltage Controlled Oscillators, Voltage Controlled Filters, 2 dynamic Envelope Generators and a Voltage Controlled Amplifier. Just as on the original MS-20, the iMS-20 features high-pass/low- pass self-oscillating filters with the unique distortion elements that made these filters so popular.
Built-in 16-step analog sequencer to control the sound

In addition to the MS-20, the Korg SQ-10 was also introduced in the same year.
Featuring 12 steps, this analog sequencer could produce either a series of pitches, or create a cyclic pattern of control changes to the volume, panning, filter brightness, or other synthesizer parameters. The KORG iMS-20 provides a 16-step analog sequencer that has been designed based on this SQ-10. It features new improvements not found on the original analog sequencer, such as easy control of notes, volume and pan, or synth/effect parameters, plus all of the SQ- 10's classic and unique functionality such as three-channels of voltage control and six types of sequence mode. The infinite possibilities that arose from patching the SQ-10 and MS-20 together are once again available for today's creative artists. Using the iMS-20’s multi-touch display allows access to new features and new phrases!
Music production studio with the MS-20 mono synth, a six-part drum machine, and a mixer

KORG iMS-20 was designed as a music production tool with conceptual input from Nobuyoshi "sanodg” Sano of DETUNE ltd., renowned as the producer of "KORG DS-10 for Nintendo DS."

In addition to the MS-20 synthesizer and SQ-10 sequencer mentioned above, the iMS-20 completes your sound design and synthesizer studio by introducing a six-part drum machine. By simply pressing the step buttons, basic or intricate drum parts can be quickly created, with each hit having independent control of pitch and gate time! Create up to sixteen patterns and arrange them to create a song. Impressively, the sounds of this drum machine are also created using a built-in MS-20. Using the seven-channel mixer – complete with VU metering – it can add in one of the 14 Effects; anything from BPM sync’d delay to an exotic grain-shifter or decimator. Template patterns are provided for a variety of musical styles.

Put it all together and the KORG iMS-20 offers everything you need to create high-quality music productions.

Kaoss Pad function allows intuitive performance and control

In addition to being a complete electronic music production studio, the KORG iMS-20 can be a dynamic performance instrument as well. The iMS-20 is equipped with dual Kaoss pad control surfaces – one for musical playing and one for changing parameter values! Just as on Korg’s Kaoss Series, you can create music by simply stroking the pad and moving your fingers over the Kaoss Pad surface. The Kaoss controllers make it easy to generate cool music. There is no need for you to know music theory or instrumental technique; the phrases you imagine (or new phrases you cannot imagine!) will flow naturally from your fingertips.
Publish and share your iMS-20 songs online with the SoundCloud music distribution site

SoundCloud is a great way to share your musical enjoyment with other people; you can use it to publish your own songs, or to collaborate on songs with friends and people anywhere in the world.

Fun, simple, and easy to use, SoundCloud has become a standard for music professionals to distribute and share their creations online. With the cooperation of SoundCloud Ltd., audio data exported by KORG iMS-20 and its song data can now be quickly published and shared anywhere on the web. For example, you can post your creation on Facebook; let your friends listen and invite them to make their own music. You can access the SoundCloud server from within the iMS-20, making it easy to publish and share data.

Requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPad.

A complete reproduction – and more - of the legendary M1 that defined an era
Mobile Digital Synthesizer for the iPad
Ranked #1 on the App Store on Top Paid Music category in more than 20 countries! (5/27)

Since it went on sale in 1988 the legendary M1 music workstation rapidly achieved record-breaking sales, becoming a mainstay of the music scene from the late 1980s and beyond. The common element of electronic instruments that have left their name in history is that they had a unique sound that was difficult if not impossible to replicate. Sounds such as the "M1 Piano” is instantly recognizable and have appeared on countless hit records over many years, and yet these are sounds that could only be produced by the M1. And that’s what you can now have on your iPad!

● A faithful reproduction of the original M1 Sound
The PCM data provides the library of the original M1. For the hardware, we analyzed the circuit diagram of the original design, and completely replicated it in software down to the last detailed parameters. Engineers with an exhaustive knowledge of the M1 made careful adjustments in order to obtain the sound of the original unit, something that cannot be obtained simply by sampling the original sounds.

● A continued evolution of the M1
Not content with simply reproducing the original, iM1 provides further evolutionary developments. Synth parts now have the Filter Resonance that was requested at the time of the original. The effect parts, originally consisting of only two effects, have been powered-up to 18 effects. The user interface has also been refreshed with additions such as a KAOSS pad. iM1 is the ultimate version of the KORG M1.

● A gigantic library encompassing 3,300 sounds and 34 cards*
In addition to all 19 of the ROM cards originally released for the M1, iM1 also covers the sounds of the M1EX which expanded the internal PCM of the M1, as well as the sounds of the T-series which appeared as an evolution of the M1. There’s also "BEST OF M1”, a selection of 100 great M1 programs. The new "Smart Sound Browser” makes it quick to find the desired sound. You can also view the sounds ranked by how often they are selected by iM1 users around the world.
*with all the expansion card installed via in-app purchase

● KAOSS pad lets anybody perform
iM1 features a KAOSS pad from the popular KAOSSILATOR, allowing you to perform intuitively just by touching the screen. By using the dual KAOSS pads to play phrases or adjust the sound, even people who are not accustomed to keyboard instruments or knowledgeable about synthesizers can enjoy performing the iM1. There’s also a conventional keyboard, as well as the "Smart Keyboard”, which lets you specify a scale setting and play phrases with a single finger.

● Use with KORG Gadget for song production
iM1 can be used together with Gadget, the music production DAW app that won the App Store Best App of 2014 award in Japan. If both apps are installed, you can use iM1 as a sound module within Gadget, taking advantage of the program sounds in iM1 for music production. iM1 also supports Audiobus and Inter-App Audio, so it can also be used for GarageBand etc.

● Connect a MIDI keyboard and use as a sound module
In addition to enjoying iM1 on its own, you can connect a USB MIDI keyboard* via a Lightning adaptor and play the iM1 as an external sound module. You can easily take along an even more powerful workstation sound module as part of your iPad-based compact mobile system.
*microKEY-25, nanoKEY2 etc.

● Interchangeable with the KORG Legacy Collection and the original M1
Sounds that you create in iM1 can be sent from your iPad via iTunes to a Mac/PC. If you have the Legacy Collection M1, you can use those sounds in a DAW. Data compatibility is maintained not only with the plug-in but also with the original M1; this means that you can transfer data in system exclusive format from the original M1. It’s a dream come true!
