  • Fun way to generate musical ideas! Jul 25, 2016

    By Justin.Raymund
    I love this app. I treat it like an instrument. I love that I can export the loops as audio for use in my DAW. I take them and treat them as samples in maschine, or loops in ableton live, and play with them and mangle them more. I've definitely come up with the beginnings of some killer tracks (in my opinion) with this app. It's fun, intuitive, and the sounds are pretty great! I would love to see more sound packs in the future. I also think it would be AWESOME if it could export to midi, midi control other sounds (like plug ins from my DAW). Perhaps a full blown plug-in for my DAW eventually? It would be great to have some further tweak-ability options for the sounds, or use the generated midi to apply to other instruments.

    Fun, easy to use, easy to make good music quickly. Still some bugs, will stop working midoperation but all i need to do is close and reopen app. Major con is no overdubs ( you only get 5 tracks ) , and no master volume control or individual track volume controls which is a serious design flaw that I can not believe Korg left out. Why?! Despite all that, still fun to play, just not worth $20 , maybe $10
  • Fun, but... Jul 23, 2016

    By Nick Namis Taken
    This app has great sounds and a fairly intuitive, user friendly interface. I'd like to use it for live performances but can't seem to be able to consistently hit on a specific pitch when I'd like to. Maybe if this app had the ability to overlay some type of visible grid, it would be easier to consistently hit on a specific note or pitch. I can't use this app in live performance in it's current incarnation because it is just to random for me when trying to nail down a consistent, repeatable rhythm line and then overlay a melody. If that were possible, this app would be a TEN STAR app. If you are just into random sounds, this app is great. Another neat addition would be the ability to record live samples and manipulate those with the screen interface. I realize that would likely be a higher cost app, but the world is ready for it and NOBODY ELSE has an interface like this. Keep going, you're nearly there.

  • Big time fun. Little Surprises. Small improvements. Mar 31, 2020

    I absolutely love this app. It’s fun, easy and intuitively simple. Sure it’s limited in the amount of sounds but that limitation is also a creativity spark. Many may not know or care to bother but you can export your songs via Audio Share/Copy for work in your favourite DAW application. So the notion of this being limited to only your phone is malarkey. One limitation that can easily be rectified however would be the inclusion of a “mixer” to obviously mix the levels more efficiently.
  • Gate arp please Nov 2, 2020

    By Eve Severe
    I own three versions of the hardware Kaossilator. They all have an arp. I have owned this app since the day it was released and in every review and correspondence I have begged for a gate arp. Why can’t they implement one? I would pay an in app purchase for one. It makes this app useless and I never use it. I own all of Korg’s apps and this one is the most crippled out of all of them. Don’t get me wrong- Kaossilators are all touch screen so it isn’t a huge leap for a touch device and they pulled it off well except for the arp. They even allowed the option of turning of the flashing lights as requested by many users they never listened when users asked for an arp. Gate arp! The 9th year in a row I have requested.... please!!

    I've been playing with it for about a day now so this is an early review. It's fun to make loops with and I think with practice it would be good for live performances. That said the interface is a little confusing with little to no instructions. I still don't fully understand the file saving. Not sure if you can save a project, looks like exporting a wav is the only option. I'd love to save it so I can try something else and then come back to the current project later. Ideally I'd like a timeline to mix the loops I make or at least an easy way to save out the loop as separate instruments so I can mix them in another program.

    I got this because I was looking for some deep bass sounds to insert into my live show. The bass sounds ended up being okayish, but there are enough sounds in here that there's a strong chance everyone will find some that they like. I like several of the Leads, the Acoustics --while not sounding especially acoustic-- do sound interesting, and there are a bunch of the sound effects ones that I really like. Would be great if future versions were more customizable and had MIDI, but I still have to say it was well worth the price.

    It does what it does and fairly well. Given the state of audio latency on Android, it's no surprise that Kaossilator is the only app Korg has released, but I'm still surprised at how fluidly it runs on Android devices- it really is amazing I'm not giving it 5 stars because precision playing with notes is too difficult, due to how close the semitones are. If Korg added midi keyboard support, I'd say this is a "must have" for Android users and easily worthy of the money
  • WARNING: THIS APP WILL SPOIL YOU! Dec 21, 2016

    By Leom187
    This is the best music sequencer of all time. Period. The included sounds may not be everyone's cup of tea but you will not find a better sequencing workflow anywhere else. You will have so much fun making songs, you will wonder why people think music is difficult. You will try (and fail) to replicate this fun in other music making apps and then come right back to this. There is nothing, NOTHING, more intuitive, more fluid, and more fun for jamming out and putting songs together via software. You've been warned!

    This app wouldn't be too bad if it didn't randomly overwrite loop save files. Comments in these reviews about this issue go back to 05/31/17. I've had this same issue myself--from the version I first downloaded, and in each of the three updates Korg has releases since, including the latest. I did email Korg more details earlier this year, but that didn't get anywhere. On the bright side my battery lasts days longer when I don't use this app.

    I was hoping the app's controls would be a bit more accessible since I'm blind and use the TalkBack screen reader. I would understand if the pad for the sounds needed TalkBack to be turned off in order for it to be used, but not one single button can be focused. This is very disheartening, as the app is fully usable on iOS with the VoiceOver screen reader. There are limitations to how well they can make it work on Android, but it can definitely be made so that blind folks can use it. Please look into this. Feel free to reach out, and I'd be glad to assist.
  • Overpriced and underdeveloped Jul 16, 2017

    I wanted to like this app.. of course for $20 I wanted to like this app .. But i can't. 1. It's an iPhone app only.. one of those annoying huge font minimal feature apps that opens sideways on the iPad... 2. The kaossilator has true audio loopers that can be overdubbed with different parts..so a kick/snare from one program can have percussion from a different program overdubbed..not so here.. in this app they are NOT audio loops...change a program and the audio changes.. this means you may use 5 programs only for your track.. huge disappointment and total absolute bummer This app clearly has been left to rot by korg without development for the iPad or features and is a total waste of money

    I really have no clue about music and audio. A dj friend of mine mentioned this in passing while we were at dinner. I saw it on sale the next day in the play store. It is amazing what you can do with this app. I love apps that increase my knowledge of stuff and being able to explore sound with this thing when bored is amazing.
  • Something different May 16, 2018

    By ChappyCorson
    It’s not a guitar, keyboard or drums. It’s a weird instrument that can keep my attention for quite a while. I’m fascinated and having fun with it still, though I’ve had the app for about 5 years. You don’t have to be a musician or know your scales. You can’t play out of key. Anyway, it’s a good way to spend a while being creative just for the fun of it.
  • More SoundPacks please! May 7, 2017

    By Artisinformation
    One of my all time favorite music making apps. It would really make my day to see the following: 1. New sound packs with a focus on better drums and bass 2. Individual control of each instrument's volume (faders) 3. Grid view option for the touchpad so note input is more accurate 4. How about some track/master filters and effects?
  • Updated! 5 Stars! May 14, 2019

    By Theogore
    Thank you for updating! Now I can access my unfinished work and continue my fondness for this great app... edit: uh oh, bugs. It won’t make a sound... Edit: After May 14 update, still not making sound and won’t pause. Thanks for trying to get this fixed, but it’s still not working.
  • BPM 20? Not Slow Enough Mar 17, 2020

    By JEROME BAEZ
    Is there a reason why the minimum BPM threshold is 20 BPM? I understand most people wouldn’t want a BPM slower than 20 but does that mean that I shouldn’t be able to if I want to? This is obviously something I feel is arbitrary and shouldn’t be limited. This should be an easy fix.

    Very fun app to mess around with. Good controls to quickly make interesting beats. I really don't like the way the app looks though. Looks very.. unfinished? Amateurish? Idk, I just hate the UI. Also wish there was a few more controls, effects, or customizable XY parameters. Those are small complaints though. It's a solid app all around and easy to use. I highly recommend it for anyone who is into making music.

    The "light show" you see during playback of the supplied loops is SO cool. And creating your own loops is straightforward. So why only 4 stars? (Even tho it was free) Note entry is just too frustrating. It DESPERATELY needs a horizontal grid to indicate the note. I realize that a violin, for example, has no "grid" to show the note. But I'm not gonna practice for months to create a two bar loop. I'm on the feature request slippery slope here. Note volume, octave, etc? For now I demand the grid.

    By Christopher D Rasbury
    I'm gonna give it to Korg for making this kaossilator. It's really brought out some musical inspiration in myself. My one and only complaint is that sometimes loops I make end up "Corrupted" When I select them they won't play and I lose that loop forever. It makes me sad. If that issues was resolved I would give this app a full rating.
  • Korg is Korg Oct 1, 2019

    By Reclusorap
    Good app! Specially for effects and ambience!! ...i just think that Korg should update everything a little bit more!!! Change the aesthetics and add more sounds to it!!!! More sound libraries on this app should be a priority!!!!! Please Korg... made this happen, there is so much potencial on this one. This is really fun for live performances on your iPhone and iPad.

    Been enjoying using Kaossilator in the past few days since it was announced for free. I made and saved a bunch of quality loops. That is, until it suddenly decided not to run anymore. Now it just crashes upon starting the app. Only option is to re-install. All my work gone.

    Nice of Korg to give this to us for free but I never would pay for it. Far too limiting. Couldn't find a single sound I didn't want to edit in some way, but unfortunately you can't edit parameters or apply effects to these on actual synths. Played with it for a half hour and uninstalled. Not for me.
