Full-featured keyboard synthesizer. KASPAR is a full-featured keyboard synthesizer, with an on-screen keyboard. It's also MIDI-compatible, so you can use it with an external keyboard or a virtual-MIDI app.
Plenty of synthesizer options. There's no shortage of synthesizer options in KASPAR, from orchestral to grunge and everything in between.
Record, playback, and load tracks. Of course, you can record your tracks in KASPAR. Then you can load them, play them back on a loop, or export them through email, iTunes file sharing, or simple copy and paste. Importing tracks is also supported, but not from Apple Music.
What is it about?
Kaspar is a fully-featured synthesizer with a built-in keyboard. You can also slave the app to other virtual MIDI apps, or play through your own Bluetooth-enabled keyboard.
Why we love it
Of course, a MIDI composition app wouldn't be complete without a way to record your tracks. Kaspar has that, and more. You can record, play back, and loop your own tracks easily on a vintage tape recorder interface. Kaspar also supports exporting your music, through iTunes File Sharing, email, or simple copy and paste. Even better, you can import music files from other sources. The only thing that won't work, unfortunately, is working with files that come from Apple Music, because the service's file format is protected.
