With coronavirus forcing many to work from home, large events cancelled, and health organisations around the world encouraging social distancing and self-isolation, electronic instrument manufacturers Moog and Korg have offered their synthesizer apps for iOS and Android devices for free for a limited time in order to keep busy while you’re stuck at home.
Korg have shared their iKaossilator app for iOS and Android, available to download free of charge until March 31st for the iOS version, March 20th for the Android version, in order to “help you with a musical way to occupy your mind.”
The iKaossilator apps are “tools that let you create music by using, moving and swiping a single finger – and you don’t need any musical knowledge to get started,” say Korg.
Schools, offices, & concerts 🌎wide have been requested to close & with many people self-quarantining & working from 🏡, we wanted to help you occupy your time a little. Now until March 20th, get the iKaossilator App FREE for iOS & Android. Have some fun: https://t.co/s4sU1kZAR1 pic.twitter.com/kF2C5tMbdy
