This video was taken by Engadget from the recent Google IO developers conference, where various apps that run under Google's Android OS were showcased. The Miselu Neiro a dedicated music app hardware platform (still in prototype) runs Android and Korg have developed a port of their Polysix soft synth to run on that.
Yet another step towards a competing platform to Apple’s iOS is welcome and with recent developments in the Android 4.1 OS, which tackle the audio latency that has been an issue previously, we hope to see more of this kind of thing.
With Korg being keen to adopt a new platform - think the iMS20 and iElectribe amongst the first decent instruments availble in iOS, we hope that this is the start of great things.
But Korg do say:
*Polysix for neiro was developed by Korg to offer an example of what is possible on the Miselu neiro. There are no plans to make it available commercially at this time.
