What's New in Version 2.9.2
Bug fixes and improvements.
Edit: I think it would be awesome to see folders for all KORG apps, because the lack of organization gets really disorienting once projects and presets start piling up.
Massive thanks to the devs for the quick, continuous updates. Gadget is still as much of a joy to use as the first day I bought it and only continues to impress me.
I would still like to see a sampler gadget (like the Simpler in Ableton) implemented. Cubase just finally got a sampler, so I hope it doesn't take Gadget as long :)
Bluetooth headphones work! Just set audio latency to fast when you want to jam and it syncs fairly well, with acceptable, surprisingly low latency. Really impressive. I'm using the JBL Reflect Minis.
Gladstone+Madrid Review: It took a long time for me to buy these two because I really didn't understand what they were, mainly Madrid. Gladstone is essentially a drum rompler and Madrid is a bass rompler (sort-of). Gladstone comes loaded with 20 kits and 120 completely usable sounds, including percussion. I LOVE the ambient control! Makes spacing drums beyond easy. Madrid is a bit different and is more like a Module. It comes with 10(+?) basses— about 6 electric and 4 acoustic—spread out over 31 presets. Each preset contains a bass with a different play style, which is important to remember, because you cannot set the sound source/play style without selecting a preset. The sampled basses vary, but most sound great, with tight, clear transients. The 5 amps sound really good and so do the effects! All in all, I'd recommend Gladstone easily but am a bit more hesitant about Madrid, unless you really need that feel of live playing on the go.
Original Review: I used to dream of this type of ease, simplicity, and power for making music on the go.
Major thanks to Korg and the devs for this, because it is truly a phenomenal experience using Gadget.
Gadget coming to Mac OS!!
I've owned a number of Korg hardware music products. From the microkorg to the new volca range. The sound of Korg is industry leading. To be able to have this same quality sound on my IOS devices is unreal. And might I add a superb sequencer with unlimited midi tracks and studio grade effects and AUTOMATION LANES.!Bluetooth midi support with ableton link. Oh and the devices themselves are so intuitive and easy to use. You will make music from any genre you desire with a collection of synthesizers, drum machines and acoustic sampled instruments. Gadget is the BEST mobile songwriting toolbox hands down. No app compares to it. #1 app named in China for a clear reason. And just announced at namm 2017 that gadget is coming to the Mac OS, this is a dream come true. I finally have a reason to carry around my iPad and do serious work. Thank you Korg, you've rekindled my spark in music making in an otherwise overly saturated world of music apps. Give me audio tracking and a better mixing console and this will be the DAW of any mobile producers dream.
Bug fixes and unspecified improvements
What'd you guys improve? Can I select and scroll on the piano roll at the same time now? These things would be nice to know. Love gadget though.
