Korg Releases their Volca Sample SDK

Here’s what they say on the Korg site

“Developers can now build their own data input tool for the volca sample using the software development kit (SDK).

The volca sample is a powerful sample sequencer that includes a set of preloaded sound samples designed by KORG. Previously you needed our iOS app if you wanted to use your own samples but now, with the KORG SYRO library included in the SDK, you can create your own tools with the interface that you design for your platform. Not only will this library unleash the potential to load samples and sequences, it will empower you to combine this code with other features you have made.

Auto-slice a song to generate a sample set?
Turn photos of patterns into sequences?
Algorithmic music generator?
Generate random sequence from quantum effects?

The choice is yours. Your creativity and coding skills are the limit.

The best part is, it’s not just for developers. Any tool created by the community will be shared, so everyone benefits.”

It’ll be interesting to see what developers do make with this and how it further connects mobile to hardware.
