Armada Sonora has posted a very funky little demo of iMS-20 and a Monotribe playing together with Korg SyncKontrol and WIST.
Video Description (Google & Me Translation):
Korg iMS-20 is an iPad app that aims to emulate the sound of classic Korg MS20 and add extra functionality such as Kaosspad, a sequencer, a drum machine and a song composer based on patterns. Korg Monotribe analog synthesizer is a ribbon controller. At least for me, this little guy has proven to be a surprise as it is a powerful synthesizer with character, that does justice to those legendary analog synthesizers that, several decades ago, Korg stopped producing.
The aim of the video is to show how, through SyncKontrol application, used on an iPhone, you can sync the digital world (iMS-20) with analog realm (Monotribe).
The video setup:
SYNC iMS20 (iPad) is slaved to SyncKontrol (iPhone) through WIST. This way we can, from the iPhone, give play / stop commands and manipulate tempo. Monotribe is slaved to SyncKontrol (iPhone) connecting Monotribe Sync-IN to the output of the iPhone, using mini-plug cable. Thus, hitting play in SyncKontrol from the iPhone, we can establish perfect synchrony between iMS-20 and Monotribe, without MIDI.
AUDIOiPad: output stereo audio, without intermediate processing.
Monotribe: Aux mono output to a Monotron Delay.
Monotron Delay: output monaural audio.
Using Monotron Delay enables us to expand the possibilities of sound experimentation with the Monotribe, but was not used for any further processing. This is a very easy to use in combination SYNC sync tools and WIST (Wireless Sync-Start Technology) to live analog and digital tools. There are other applications that support WIST sync as ReBirth, NLog and Tabletop, among many others.
