  • Do not buy! Broken voice stealing, no resonance, no fixes

    So it has been more than a year and the voice stealing algorithm is still broken: held bass notes cut out when you repeatedly hit the same treble note with the sustain pedal held down. This is such an obvious bug! This is simply unacceptable for playing piano. Sympathetic resonance is also still missing. :( Please KORG, do you not understand how a sampled piano instrument is supposed to work?
  • Awesome

    This is a great app , allows for a lot of creativity. I don't know if this is already installed , but I would like if there were a midi learn function so that I am able to control the parameters on my midi controller

    The app has nice sounds, however the ivory piano is rather thin. No updates have been provided in a while
  • 2 years later plus 3 months- split update w Gadget

    Continuing my quest to have iPad replace hardware sound module (Roland XV-2020): bought Gadget which pulls all the Module sounds in to 5 Gadgets (Salzburg- pianos, Montreal- EPs, Glasgow- synths, Alexandria- organs, Firenze- synths). Unlike Module, Gadget lets you set midi channel for each Gadget. If your midi controller lets you split keyboard and assign midi channel to zone, you can do splits and layers with Module sounds. Not as good as doing it within Module (no set list function) but definitely usable. You can also run Module on one midi channel and Gadgets on others simultaneously so you have split while using Module, just have to manually turn Gadget on and off. If Korg wants to serve live keyboard players, they’d include splits in Module. We don’t need the patterns and looping of Gadget, we need sounds in configuration that allows splits. Playability- how keyboard players use app at gigs (and practices) should drive features. Goal is one keyboard and one app, keep gig rig simple but comprehensive. I have Module, Garageband, Sampletank, and bs-16i. I play in band, usually using 73 key midi controller. I like Module the best as set list feature is handy at gigs. I also like the sounds. Some suggestions- 1) Set list feature does not remember the assigned sounds, i.e., if you go out of set list and play a different sound then when you go back to set list, the last sound played is one assigned to song, not the one you originally picked. 2) Transpose of incoming midi data would be great, ideally set list feature would remember this too. 3) Pedal and sustain are great, how about aftertouch? 4) Replace all rotary controllers with sliders, much easier at gig and more visual. 5) Have volume setting not switch by instrument, i.e., once set be same no matter what instrument selected. 6) Make variation buttons larger, there is room. 7) Add some basic EQ, this is pretty important. There is also the splits and layers features others have mentioned, have a look at bs-16i and Sampletank, both do this and transpose. Original review: Sounds are fine, worth the $ for me to have such useable acoustic piano, Rhodes, & Organ sounds. Thought I'd be able to do splits by assigning zones in keyboard to different midi channels but Module cannot load 2 instruments at same time. Can accomplish splits by using Module & Sampletank on different channels but I much prefer Module sounds & functionality. Please add split functionality, I'll pay extra.
  • Great app!

    Lot of great sounds in this app. I use it on stage every night,
  • Great sounds and easy to use

    I love this app. Great deal when it was on sale. Like all the sounds. Really good ivory synthology grand piano sound. Good Rhodes and Organ. Not many bass sounds - a little lacking in bass and drums. But this works great as plugin to Korg Gadget. Needs an update to support Apple AU format - then it would be truly great.
  • Great sounds and more

    There's a bunch of good sounds in this one, and there's also lots of organs, which I highly recommend if you don't have an iPad. There's all these pianos and some extra sounds, but you should get the regular version instead of "Standard for iPhone" since you'll probably have native iPad support and the ability to get more sounds. However, I have some concerns. I purchased this app during a sale and it was supposed to be less but it must've paid full price for it. I also had this happen with ARP ODYSSEi as well, which was supposed to be $15. And where is the free Tape pack? The only thing close is the Tape Keyboard, but I think it's pianos and keyed instruments. Is it an iPad exclusive in app purchase? Anyway, go and try it, get some organ sounds, and don't be scared of the huge size; you can just install the gadgets and uninstall Module afterwards, if you have Gadget. I'd like some answers too. Lots of great organ sounds!
  • A great well rounded sound module, some voices are stunning

    KORG's iOS apps are no joke. I own several, Gadget as well, and there's never been a point where I've heard a patch or edited a new variable and said "This doesn't sound as good as hardware", it is incredible how KORG has brought so many iconic sounds to iOS for pennies on the dollars that hardware commands. My only issue with Module is I got it during a sale and really wanted it more for the 5 Gadgets it unlocks within Gadget. At over 1GB I knew Module was stout but accepted it...I didn't know that another 1GB+ is needed to install the five Module based Gadgets into the Gadget app on top of the 1GB taken for the stand alone app. I wish the App Store descriptions included this fact. Other than that...highly recommended.
  • No good for piano players

    Do not buy this app for piano. It has a major flaw that makes it no good. It is called "Voice Stealing." If you hit the sustain pedal, and hold down a bass note while arpeggiating with your right hand, the bass note drops out quickly. You DO NOT get the full polyphony promised. I have emailed tech support at Korg, and they told me to change my polyphony settings to 112. I did that. They have not "helped" me since. It just does not work. They have basically botched their voice stealing algorithm causing the bass cutout. Voice stealing should always come from the tail end of repeated notes. You should never rob the primary sound of a non-repeated note that is being held down, or sustained with the pedal. And Korg refuses to address this issue. CMP Piano is a better app for piano because of this.
