Kraftwerk Reveal "Kling Klang Machine" for the iPhone and iPad
German electronic innovators Kraftwerk never did deliver on their promise of a new studio album in 2010, although that doesn't mean they have been sitting around simply playing with their pocket calculators. Instead, the group have emerged with a new piece of interactive software created for the iPhone and iPad.

The app is called the Kling Klang Machine - No. 1 and a product description calls it an "interactive 24-hour music generator" that "creates music and sound based on realtime data depending on your location."

There's also a list of features for the product, although it's a little confusing to say the least:

1. WORLD TIME ZONE MAP

24 hours automated music

2. INTERACTIVE CONTROL

Bidirectional cross line: tempo and tune of sound

Zoom: room - sound - effect

Save: 2 memory locations for control settings

Reset: All settings back to default

3. MATRIX

Auto: Matrix sequence - variation after 16 steps

Loop: 16 step sequence in a loop

Clear: Clear matrix

Save: 2 memory locations for sequencer

4. MIXER

Direct access to all parameters through direct controls

Save: 2 memory locations for controller settings

Reset: All settings back to default


The Kling Klang Machine is available from iTunes now for $8.99. A demo video is available below.
