A brand new version of Korg Module is out. The highlight of v4 is probably the AUv3 support (finally), so you can use it in any app now, not just Gadget. There is more of course, here is the press release:

https://www.korg.com/uk/news/2020/1013/

Also all purchases are 50% off there (till end of Oktober), so there is your chance to get Ivory II American or Mobile D for 20€. Those are a kind of a “light” version compared to desktop, still for 20 bucks you can’t really go wrong.

The American D is excellent. Not so much the Ivory piano,IMO. If you are only interested in piano sound get the free version of a Module and buy the in app.i recommend the KApro Orchestra and Choir inapps as well. All inapps and a Module Pro are on sale 50% off.

Here are two demos I made. The first features the American D, the second KApro orchestra cello and choir.

The “downside” was previously the missing AUv3 support. But now it’s probably the best “package” deal you can get.

You can also now demo the instruments for a week, to see if they are to your liking. I think that’s a great addition.

I purchased the Module Pro some time ago but never used it. I even deleted it... Downloading it again. On a side note, re-pedaling was not available for the mobile Ivory pianos which is a complete no-go for me and so I didn’t add it. If they fixed that, I may buy it.

I doubt that they did, at least I didn’t read about it in the release notes. But it worth checking out.

Seems like the modules now support 7-day trials and so I started American D trial, connected it to the N1X for testing. Well, what can I say: re-pedaling and half-pedaling are not supported which makes it difficult for me to play classical music the way I'm used to, connecting legato notes, etc. Besides, the sound is a bit hollow... not sure how to describe it. I guess for a 1GB mobile piano that's used for live situation or on the go it's more than OK. But it can't replace a proper digital piano or VST-s.

Yea especially considering the price. I’m honestly not expecting wonders from a 20€ iOS VST, but considering it he circumstances I would say you get a good bang for your buck.

Also with the new trial function you don’t have to buy the cat in the bag anymore. The only thing that annoys me is that they seriously want 20€ for layering. That definitely something the base all should have.

FloRi89, agreed that iOS is not the equal of desktop vsts. This is due, as I’m sure you know, to the max RAM on an iPad at the moment being 6gb. But, IMO, it is incorrect to think of $20 or so as being an equator of not getting much because the price is so little. For several reasons, not worth going into here, musical apps are very inexpensive on the iOS platform. You can purchase the latest version of Cubase on iOS for $50 (You can do as much in Cubasis as you could have in a top shelf studio from 2000) and Ravenscroft on sale for $18! So rather than saying “what do you expect for $20?” I see it more as incredible value, open to a lot more users pocketbooks.

iOS is a rapid work in progress, and often offers cutting edge concept, GUI and FX. This is why devs like Eventide, Toneboosters and FabFilter now offer studio quality effects on iOS. I’m actually surprised Module is even being discussed on the digital forum as mostly the conversations are about key action and the latest piano VST. Which makes sense because this is a piano forum.

Well Module offers the “light” version of one of the best VSTs on the market for 20$ right now, so roughly 10% of the original price laugh. Especially if you are more in the beginner realm (like myself) and don’t really need advanced pedaling options that’s a steal.

Module itself is a great playground of course. If you spend 50$ there right now you will get a ton of really great sounding voices.

Only thing I wouldn’t buy is the Performance extension. That’s a ripoff, since it’s now AUv3, just get AUM.
