Nice demo. I'm guessing they got the code from the Legacy collection? I especially like the saturated treatments on the drums.
I am no longer in pursuit of vintage synths. The generally absurd inflation from demand versus practical use and maintenance costs is no longer viable. The internet has suffocated and vanquished yet another wonderful hobby. Too bad.

Cute, but until there's mainstream support for MIDI for all these music apps, I can't really take them serious. NLog is a great app, this looks great, but without MIDI or at least some way to interface as a VST, there's not a huge benefit for me.
bonne chance

Korg is definitely going in the right direction with the iElectribe and now this, but I agree that without MIDI they're more like self-contained fun toys that you can't easily integrate in a "pro" workflow - though if they are hip enough to integrate the Intua Pasteboard so it can be used with other software like Beatmaker etc, it would be pretty attractive (I haven't checked if this is already there, but it doesn't seem like it)

Don't think I was complaining, just stating that it's a letdown that there's no midi.

The Line Six interface only officially supports backing up sysex and recording sequences within their own application as of right now, and even if it becomes open source, there's still no software implementation within the Korg app to support MIDI.

sure, but it is also supported by at least (that I know of) nlog and the s1 midi trigger (like touchosc but directly midi) at least. I think it's only a matter of time before some MIDI I/O is added to Korg's apps.

I mean, they made a wireless sync for the DS-10. Obviously they understand the importance of an interconnected studio here.

I hate it when people complain. It's so irritating to have to put up with complaints day in and day out. I wish the complainers would have not complained or complained differently.
Back in my day, our complaints were better.
