I'm curious as to the handheld device that the keybord player is using here:

I know that Korg have produced various weird and wonderful mini synths over recent years, but I don't recognise this, if it is indeed a Korg.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Ed

Looks like an iPhone using a Kaossilator emulator app.

Thanks, Jack.

That makes sense. Not having a smartphone myself, I wasn't aware that such apps existed.

I think Jack C is right, although the new-style Kaossilators look a lot like mobile phones but they don't have this size of screen. It might be a K-app per se - I dare say there are any amount of Theremin-type emulators out there.... Or it could even be the Oramics App for maximum electronica creed!

Why can't I download one of those for my MacBook? Or maybe I can - must investigate. We had a lot of fun last summer with the Oramics Emulator at The Science Museum.

(Just noticed THIS which could bet fun! For those who don't know, look up Daphne Oram.)

I have the same model of Kaossilator as Sean does - they're much bigger than what that guy is using, and they have real knobs as controls (the more complex models have even more knobs).

Korg has an "iKaossilator" app for the iPhone/iPad and I'd bet that's it.
