My go to Daw.would love to give it 5 stars but.......

Probably the best Daw I’ve ever used.really quick workflow and songs pretty much mix themselves(not sure how but well done korg).i have a one massive issue with gadget and that it has no master fade out of my master song.i can fade individual tracks with real-time recording but that is very hit and miss and try fading individual tracks when you have 30 of them.even some sort of automatic track fade would be better than nothing.
Please korg you would have 5 stars for what should be a very basic real-time recording feature of any Daw but sadly it gets a 4 star from me as it slows my workflow to much on final mixdowns

Needs a few improvements for 5 stars

This great app needs a better Reverb. It’s impossible to finish songs with a reverb that rings, sounds awful. Apart from that it is great.
Edit : The Reverb ain’t that bad at certain settings. After months using it I know how to make the most out of it. It’s usable.

What an awesome tool!
I'm a bass player under normal circumstances. I downloaded gadget as a bit of an experiment - I wanted to put some wildly funky synth sounds on an album we're (Scratters and the Funky Disco Pig) making and figured the iPad would probably be a great way to do it. Gadget looked amazing so I paid up and got stuck in. It was three or four hours before my headphones came off on my first go, and to be honest, it's been the same every time since. It is so useable and so much fun. At one point I watched a youtube tutorial someone had made to check something I wasn't clear about but in general it's been really plain sailing. There's nothing about this tool that I can state as being a negative. Not even the price. The first hour was worth that money!
Well done Korg!!
(Ok I forgot post this review, but years later I still feel amazed by this fantastic piece of kit!!)
