Korg has teamed up with SoundCloud to offer a global remix contest in celebration of Korg's new iPad app, iPolysix. The contest, which runs from December 19, 2012 through January 31, 2013, invites musicians to create a remixed track on iPolysix from a selection provided on the contest page, then upload the remix track directly from iPolysix via "Polyshare powered by SoundCloud."
A grand prize winner and five runners up will be selected. A list of remixable tracks and complete prize and contest information can be found here.
The new, intuitive iPolysix app evokes Korg's legendary analog polyphonic synthesizer while taking full advantage of the iPad® interface. Up to eight instances of the synth can be used in conjunction with new features that include a sequencer, drum machine, multiple effects, Korg's acclaimed Kaoss touch functionality and a complete automated mixer.
