Version 2.1.0

iKaossilator Version 2.1 Highlights
● Audio Loop Import
● Seamless operation in tandem with the Kaossilator 2
● Support for "AudioPaste"

☐ New Audio Loop Import function
Audio loop files can now be imported into each part of the sequencer. iKaossilator v2.1 has evolved into an app that provides not just MIDI loop sequencing, but also audio loop sequencing! To import, simply send your audio loop* via iTunes to iKaossilator and load it via the import menu in the sound list (the sound selection screen).

In addition to simply playing an imported audio loop, you can use a filter effect assigned to the touch pad to vary the character of the song just as you would on the Kaoss Pad. This represents a nearly infinite expansion of iKaossilator's track-making and performance potential.

* Supported file formats: WAV, AIFF, MP3, AAC

☐ Seamless Integration with Kaossilator 2
The Audio loop import feature also enables closely coupled operation with iKaossilator's sibling --- the "Kaossilator 2". Loop recorder data created with a Kaossilator 2 can be imported into iKaossilator, or an audio loop created in iKaossilator can be loaded into a loop recording bank of the Kaossilator 2. When you do this, data such as the loop length and the BPM of the loop that you created is also loaded; resulting in a seamless transfer between the software and hardware.

☐ Support for "AudioPaste"
iKaossilator now supports the "AudioPaste" function that was developed by Sonoma Wire Works, which allows audio data to be copied and pasted between iOS apps. You can export audio data from the Korg iELECTRIBE or iMS-20, or from any "AudioCopy" compatible app, and then import it into iKaossilator with ease.
