The MKSensation is a player’s live gigging module designed to give you the bread and butter sounds needed for a live session, gig, church service, or studio session. The layout, ease of use, sliders, and simple functionality is what has made our PC version so successful. There is no fancy splash page and it’s not rattled with hundreds of sounds. It’s designed to be loaded and played for instant layering and inspiration. You could could call this your instant rompler full of the sounds you would use all of the time and given our reputation of sampling, you know the sounds will be very warm, thick, and realistic. You won’t even believe that these sounds are coming from your iPad!

History:
Our roots stem from being gospel musicians. In the good ol’ days we would have our multi-tier stack of keyboards and modules all layered together with a very intricate MIDI routing setup with all of or presets ready for live worship. Our setup would consist of a warm acoustic piano; a CP80 type of semi-realistic piano; lush strings; warm pad with filter cutoff; a very expressive tine; phat synth brass; a nice buzz saw; and a good ol’ real brass sound. Between these few staple sounds, we were ready for any gig, service, studio session, or performance. Think about it….When you go to the music store to try out a new synth, what do you end up playing the most…? You play the pianos, keys, strings, horns, and synth sounds. That’s what this module is all about. You can layer as many sounds as CPU permits, for instant inspiration on your iPad.

Operation:
- Click on a sound butto to activate the sound (Red LCD On)
- Click the Green Light (Right Top Corner) to activate the global effects section.
- The left side of the module shows the effects to be activated, and their levels
- The exception is for the EP 1 and EP 2. The insert FX chorus will not be used. The sounds will be swiped out with the actual sample of the chorus from the MKS unit

1. Piano 1 – MKS Piano 1
2. Piano 2 – MKS Piano 2
3. EP 1 – MKS EP 1 with and without chorus (Sampled using the original chorus)

CPU and Processing:
CPU is contingent upon your iPad Model. As with anything, don’t go crazy! Don’t think you can activate 5-6 sounds and play full glissandos and you will not max out your CPU. Also, there is an inverse relationship between lower latency and CPU. For example if you want your latency (the time between you hitting the keys and you hearing the sound) to go down, then you probably won’t be able to play as many sounds at once. There is always a fine line between the two. From our testing using an iPad 4th generation, we were successfully able to stack up to 6-sounds at a buffer of 512. Obviously, the newer the iPad, the better (with the exception of the iPad 3).

Minimal iPad Requirement:
- iPad 4th Generation or Higher
- iPad 3 is Not recommended
