Just when everyone is chasing Korg’s product development, they change things up for NAMM 2014. Today the company announced a new application for iOS called Korg Gadget for iPad. Korg Gadget for iPad is an all-in-one music production studio which offers a collection of 15 different synthesizers and drum machines called “Gadgets ” which you can freely combine to produce powerful electronic music.

For every situation that creative-minded people face, Korg’s answer is “KORG Gadget.” KORG released the iELECTRIBE simultaneously with the appearance of the first-generation iPad in 2010, and ever since has maintained its position at the forefront of mobile music apps. And now we’ve brought you the ultimate all-in-one studio app for serious mobile music production. - Korg

Aeromidi 3D Control Software

NAMM 2014 – Aeromidi 3D Control Software

During our wander around NAMM 2014 we were caught by one piece of software that had us playing with sound for longer than we should have been. The software is called AeroMIDI and is uses 3D gestures to control sound. In this instance, Ableton Live’s filters were being used for demonstration. With up to five points of articulation and complete 3D movement possible (by touching thin air), it’s an impressive piece of work. For more information on the software, head to aeromidi.net.

“AeroMIDI uses the Leap Motion Controller to track your fingers in space allowing you to play configurable 3D cubes to trigger notes and CC MIDI messages using any MIDI software or MIDI hardware,” Explains Dubspot instructor Steve Nalepa, who is an advocate of the new software controller. “AeroMIDI sends controlling information and notes to your external MIDI hardware or MIDI software.”

Teenage Engineering Demo New OS for OP1

The Teenage Engineering OP1 is without a doubt one of our favorite synthesizers. So when we heard that they will be offering yet another update to this wonderful instrument, we were delighted. Check out a new sequencer called Sketch, the new DSynth instrument, and a global tuning feature in the video below:

Over the years we have regularly been putting out OS updates for the OP-1, adding new features and functionality, as well as improving things as much as possible. In the past this has been a very secretive process and nothing has been disclosed beforehand. Today we’re happy to let you all in on three brand new upcoming features for the OP-1. These features are all in alpha stage at the moment and we’re very happy to already include you in the development process. Everything is subject to change and a we’re looking forward to final release eventually. – Teenage Engineering

Dubspot will be back at NAMM 2014 throughout the weekend. Stay tuned to our blog for more updates on music technology from the floor!
