Rarely consumed with a desperate rush to issue any new music of their own, electropop pioneers Kraftwerk
have come up with a better idea: get the fans to do the work for them.
So the Kraftwerk app
lets you inside the Kling Klang Studio, in a manner of speaking, giving you access to some cheerfully bleep-tastic musical buttons in exchange for nine of your fine American dollars.
Given that the App Store is awash with sequencers, loopers, samplers and other electronic music apps, many of which offer quite a lot more in terms of functionality, this one might be left to the fans only. But for those who value the looking-cool as much as the making-sounds, perhaps it’ll be nine bucks well spent.
