Could be great but...

Sehr kosmik

sounds excellent. Most of the gadgets are excellent. All the fx need to be tempo synced. The song arranging is a real pain. Working from top to bottom when nearly all of us were brought up on cubase ie left to right is crazy. It’s really hard to work the arranging of The initial loops out. Also the app seems to be slipping into slight gimmick territory with the monopoly skin idea. Pointless stupid idea when the whole app needs overhauling. File management. Better fx. Fx gadgets. Ability to resample etc.. etc.. it’s a musical instrument ffs not a toy. So imho could be great but.... update.. I sat down last night and properly worked out the arranging of a song and I worked it out successfully.. it’s still a bit tricky but works well. I would like to see a fx gadget with a full synthesis engine 2 Lfos. multimode filter. reverse etc... to be able to mangle even further ones tracks. And the ms20 included..... It is a quality app and a stable app so it is churlish to complain just be nice to go that little bit further with ones sound designing.

It really is the best app to date I have purchased I saw it when first come out and thought it would be like the elctribe app they done years ago , but this is really different it’s like owning a few good bits of kit with out taking up space, n wires and wall plugs, dust, you know the deal that comes with real hardware plus they make it feel more like the real deal with the Nano control! With the waffling in a nut shell it’s small money for big sound fast work flow share n export so so on....... if could have one thing for now that would make it better is every so offten give us all a free gadget , and a select all in the edit notes parameters and some do stlyle fx on mixer view like stutter/dj filters/turntable style pitch/but to fare I do use audio bus long side with launch pad... KORG GADGET BUY ITTTTTTT!

Let’s Talk about Mac OS & IDAM...

Love Gadget... Just Love it.. My favourite DAW of all time.
In fact, I have it on all my iOS devices and even payed out the much larger sum and got it on my Mini Mac as well..
It’s definitely a 5 Star DAW for me, however for now I can only give 4 stars...

I have literally only 1 gripe... and to some it may only be a small problem. But to me it’s a massive biggie.

Due to lack of info when researching how IDAM works, I’ve literally only just found out that on Mac OS it’s the DAW of choice that utilises IDAM to then incorporate your iOS devices to send/receive midi data.
Without the DAW on a Mac, IDAM is pretty much useless for midi data.

The problem is Gadget doesn’t have a midi out function..?

So I can’t get my Midi Keyboards to send midi data to my iPads thru the Mac.. If I was to use GarageBand or Logic Pro X, then I can use the midi out function and get all keyboards and iOS devices working in perfect harmony thru Mama Mac.

Studiomux is the only way I can get around this..
But takes time to setup.. and IDAM is just sitting there grinning at me.. taunting me... laughing at me...
Because Gadget haven’t stepped up their game yet..

Please Mr Gadget.. Pretty pretty please with a big fat cherry on top.. Can I have a midi out function for Christmas?
