Learn to play iconic 80s game themes with Korg for iPhone

Korg has updated its Gadget app for iOS to enable synth fanciers to mimic the classic video game sounds of the 80s.

v2.5 of the app features a Kanata synth as an in-app purchase, which is an 80s-inspired synth capable of reproducing the sounds you may have heard in arcade games like Pac-Man and Galaga.

It works (via Factmag) by recreating the Waveform Memory Sound Generator found in the old Namco tables.

The Korg app doesn’t come cheap and is currently available for £14.99/$19.99.

However, if you want the Kamata IAP, which has been made in collaboration with Bandai Namco Studios, you’re going to have to fork out £7.99/$9.99.
