New Korg Synth Recreates Classic 80s Video Game Audio
In partnership with video game designer Bandai Namco, Korg has created a new chiptune synth for its app, Gadget.
Gadget, which launched back in 2014, features numerous virtual synths and drum machines based around the iconic Japanese company’s arsenal of products. It is also a sequence and mixer for those recording full tracks. With the apps latest update, it allows you to utilize the “Kamata” synth, recreating the sounds found in classic Namco games like Pac-Man and Galaga. Kamata will join the 8-bit “Kingston” synth, with a very 80s inspired interface to match.
Gadget retails for £14.99, while Kamata is available as a £7.99 in-app purchase. See the video below and hear samples of the synth at work.
