Korg has released Version 2 of its iKaossilator app for the iPhone, and now for the iPad as well. Users who have already purchased the app can update at no cost. For new users, the special $9.99 sale price has been extended until December 31, 2011 (pricing will be $19.99 after that date). New features added in iKaossilator Version 2 include:
Audio Export records and saves any performance just as it was played
iPad native support allows the iKaossilator to fill the iPad's 9.7" screen

"AudioCopy" provides an easy way to copy audio data between musical instrument apps

The iKaossilator is an expressive music synthesizer app offering 150 diverse sounds, combined with a five-part loop sequencer for creating multi-part tracks. As with all Korg Kaoss products, the iKaossilator is controlled by tapping or sliding a finger on its X-Y touchpad. This intuitive form of control allows users to quickly create music regardless of their instrumental training.
Moving the finger across the iKaossilator horizontally will generally control the pitch, while vertical movements will control various synthesis and sound parameters. Users can easily play musical phrases by choosing one of 35 musical scales and selecting a musical "Key" or "Root".
The loop sequencer allows up to five musical parts to be recorded and layered as a "track." Fifty loops created by professional musicians help get things started quickly; a loop sequencer is also included for live performance. Pricing and Availability:
