Slowwwwww on iPad Pro and iOS 11

I’ve been using this app for years and really do love it, but the most recent iteration is verrrrrrry laggy and slow. I’m using a brand new 10.5 inch iPad Pro too, so I’m not sure if this newest version is built for Mac OS and then ported to iPad or what, but the lag frequently makes the on-screen soft synths unplayable. If the app can’t run smoothly on the latest hardware, maybe we need to roll it back a version, Korg? It has run fine the past few years on my iPad Air 1...

Amazing for mobile production with room to grow

Most reviews have already mentioned what Id say about the app.

It does get costly investing in all the instruments and the OSX version, but in the grand scheme its just about the same cost as a traditional daw. The great part is that you can pick up where you left off when you leave the studio. You cant do that with ableton or reason or pro tools, etc.

I do hope they update the chords feature to play more relative chords based on the scale and key.

I d also like to see them either add the larger piano keys like Madrid to all instruments with a keyboard or add an option to double up like iMaschine.

Serious fun.

So much has been packed into Gadget, still easy to use and endless libraries of patches to spark the imagination. Surprisingly useful for EWI, Electronic Wind Instrument, live patch selection. Easy cc assignment.
The effects sound real nice as well, but I would like a bit more control on some. Gadget has brought a lot of fun back to writing.
