What's New in Version 3.5.2
• Improved overall performance.
• Other enhancements to make Gadget easier to use.
I have only begun to explore the power of this DAW. The amount of drum machines and synth apps you get included in this app is mind boggling...and they are all Korg super machines! Each included Gadget has its own unique properties and sounds...it really is a pleasure to explore. The price is steep but well worth it! I got mine 50% off for Black Friday ☺️ In the iPhone the user interface is very difficult to see, so bring your reading glasses and the way the tracks are stacked was odd to figure out that they were not just loops, but tracks stacked on one another and gadgets side by side. Once you figure that out recording becomes easy, but I still haven't figured out how to advance the cursor to specific areas without hitting play and waiting for it to hit the mark you want. There is a learning curve, but it's not impossible to figure out.
All this power for so little 💰!
I have been a Korg product user for some time, I have owned a couple of tritons, a couple of ms-2000’s and I currently own three analog synths by Korg. needless to say I am a fan. Anyway, I never expected to find such powerful music production software available for my phone. I literally make beats everyday, everywhere. Granted there are other apps that also allow me to do this, but Gadget is just so easy to function. It only takes a few seconds to get a loop going and the inspiration just flows in after that. I definitely recommend this app to anyone who wants to make music.
Great sound, songwriting. Needs performance tools.
Excellent sounds and synth tools. Even easy enough to write songs in this environment.
I’d really like it to have some performance tools. Even GarageBand, a free app, has LiveLoops. I don’t even need this to be another clip launcher app, but that would be cool. The Scenes are fine for that, but if there were some better ways to use this in a performance setting that would be appreciated. Possibly shrink down the scenes into square buttons in live mode so it would be easier to fit more onto one screen for triggering.
Also, some live FX and mixing tools would be great. GarageBand now has this down. Kaosspad stuff, etc.
finally, midi out would be helpful from the sequenced tracks...I have a lot of Korg synths I’d like to use with it live.
Generally very happy here, it just needs a little more for the money this costs.
