The current trend is known. Hardware Synthesizers with nice interface are still as popular as ever. Even if the hardware is booming because of Eurorack or cheap analog Synthesizers, you should not neglect the software area. Especially on the iOS side, there are exciting music apps that not only can do a lot but also sound very good. All the better if you can combine hardware & software and you can benefit from both worlds.
A new video by the Polish company Polyend shows how to use the Polyend SEQ sequencer with the KORG Gadget app on the iPad. Here are several instruments from the app directly recorded with the sequencer and shows that booth worlds can harmonize beautifully.
“Our Seq MIDI Sequencer can be a heart of your sophisticated hardware setup but can be easily used with software too. Not necessarily with advanced DAW only. It can give you a lot of fun while providing a great workflow with many other applications on your tablets and smartphones! Please take a look.”
