Koushion iPad MIDI Controller

Kudzu Creative Group has released Koushion, a MIDI controller for the iPad, that they say is ‘more versatile than the Tenori On’.

  • 8 selectable scenes/banks that can be played individually, simultaneously, or in automatic succession.
  • Each scene is assignable to any MIDI channel so you can control up to 8 MIDI instruments at once.
  • Improvising or playing along with a band? Dial a key and the notes will change to match the new key!
  • Syncs to any MIDI clock source available to your computer.
  • Works with all major (and not-so-major) MIDI-capable production software on your Mac or PC.
  • Perfect for adding some spice to a live set when paired with Ableton Live.
