The Korg KAOSS pad (http://www.korg.co.uk/products/dance_dj/kp3/dj_kp3.asp) is an audio and MIDI controller with a unique touch based control pad.
To date there has been no iPad emulation of this device although a some aspects may be found in the recent Korg Ims-20 app (http://www.korg.com/ims20).
This project would seek to emulate some KAOSS pad features (or similar devices - see below) to any real-time audio effect control and MIDI control on an iPAD.

Within the project you could implement some of the following: * Onboard iPad real-time controllable audio effects * Output MIDI and other controller events to control outboard hardware/software * Onboard iPad beat/drum machine generation * Onboard iPad Sampler.
Prerequisites: Student must have own iPad (possibly doable on an iPhone). Access to iPad developer kit will be provided. Good programming skills. Knowledge of (or willingness to lear) Objective C/iPad programming.
