What's New in Version 2.5.6
• Added MIDI import (SMF format) function.
Updates have been solid and haven't affected performance at all, as far as I can tell. The Decimator strip fx bit rate knob is still a bit fidgety (sorry, it's my favorite effect 😉), but the updates have made it a bit easier to work with. Still holding out on a sampler, too. Thanks again devs for your awesome work, can't wait to try Salzburg and Glasgow!
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.
Five stars once a dedicated sampler gadget with the ability to import a sample and easily use it as a sound source is added. Also, it'd be awesome if all synth fx could be used as strip fx.
Almost THE BEST APP
Definitely one of my most used apps being my recent endeavor in producing. A couple functions & capabilities are missing to make this app MY #1 APP!!!
MY MAIN CONPLAINT;
I really dislike the U.I, the main screen where you arrange your song is just FuNkY!?! I wish it were more like other DAW's.
Other than the complete dislike of the main screen, there's no IAA functionality??
STRICTLY KORG ONLY???
Also, no audio tracks capability??? Another, REALLY??!?? I don't understand why they made such an amazing app that's missing THE COUPLE other functions that would make this app easily 7 STARS!!!
...add Audio track and inter app audio capability.
Also, maybe a better arrangement view screen would be nice.
It is amazing but lacking
It's is amazing but it needs at least one audio track so if I use external gear I can capture in gadget and not have audiobus and cubasis open and eating cpu when you could work on a all in one daw and music production and sell it as an expansion for those who don't want the features .
