As the coronavirus pandemic has forced the shutdown of workplaces, schools, and large public gatherings, social distancing and self-isolating is being encouraged. To help musicians who are staying home, Moog and Korg have released their synthesizer apps for free. Moog’s Minimoog Model D iOS app and Korg’s iKaossilator app for iOS and Android are available for free for a limited time.
Moog called the release “a gift to spread positivity, creativity and expressivity. A moment to slow down, appreciate our innate strength, and experience the uplifting power of sound” and Korg specifically called it something to help occupy the time of people who are currently “self-quarantining & working from home.
