  • Gadget

    By thefivefingergiant

  • Just one thing ( and another thing )

    By Sokoum
    A song preview button, I’m waiting still . . . . 😫 Plus for the love of God can you add a search bar at the to fo the Open tab.
  • A sound gadget store

    By crosby2010
    It need a sound gadget store with new gadgets n new sounds
  • Most productive IOS sequencer

    By jld
    I have a number of IOS sequencers (Modstep, BeatMaker 3, Auria Pro, Medley, Thumb Jam, ...) and overall I find Gadget is my go to app. A big part of this is the behavior of the piano roll which has the best handling of the apps I own. For drum parts the step sequencer in Modstep is better but none of the other apps have the efficient piano roll editor that Gadget has. A drawback is you are limited to Korg gadgets and I imagine for any type of music you will need to purchase some IAP gadgets. For pop/rock/Jazz etc. you really need IAP drums, bass, piano. There are some interface quirks (e.g. to rename a scene you click on time signature in function mode, not intuitive at all) and midi import is a mess, breaking midi sequence into multiple 2 bar scenes. But overall Gadget is a very efficient music app. Sharing between devices works great, but again it’s not intuitive.
  • Absolutely love it !

    By Color my friends in
    Honestly the App Store just asked me to comment and rate gadget ....I rather be making music but felt obligated to say I love this app...I’m hardly a pro with it but it can do so many things....and is very powerful. I use it with a korg nanoKEY INTO a kc350 Roland amp. And it sounds like a really nice synth or keyboard. Best app I have ever bought honest.
  • The best thing in the whole world

    By spidako
    This is a real jewel for real music making the drums the sound the fast creative process is here buy it now enjoy life to the fullest its here
  • Fantastic DAW with Korg Plugins

    By Awesome synth
    I love Gadget! While it has some limitations (some of the plugins are worthless to me), it’s overall a wonderful app for sequencing, recording, editing and storing new sounds for use later, etc. Also, while recording, most of the apps allow for live parameter changes, which is a blast. For the $100 or so that I have invested in Gadget and accessory plugins, I have a stunning and highly capable tool.
  • No Save Warning or Auto-Save!

    By Simpson Design
    I really want to love this app. I've invested in every module and I find it creative, addictive, fun, artistic, and incredibly well engineered, EXCEPT for one absolutely critical and shocking flaw. There is absolutely no warning (ie "Do you want to save changes before proceeding?") when selecting "New" from the menu. There is also no auto-save available. This is a stunning ommission in a modern software application, and one that has led to me losing hours of work put into a composition. I've scoured support boards and forums where I've discovered that a great number of people have encountered this issue. I really fund it unfathomable that such an essential feature is missing in the iOS version. I mention the iOS version specifically because the desktop version of Korg Gadger DOES have this crucial functionality. Why would this be left out of the iOS version? I can't bring myself to use this software, for all that I've invested in it, because of the risk it creates in the destruction of hours of work. If this feature were implemented, I'd happily and easily give Gadget 5 stars. As it stands, I can't offer more than 2 for such a massive engineering oversight.
  • Best of the best

    By 4daSOUL
    Hands down the one of the best sounding apps available for iOS.
  • Buggy!

    By Tiki Man
    This program would be great if it worked properly. Quantize function is useless and after correcting the time by hand the app still plays everything off time. Plus many other serious issues that make this pretty much unusable. Looking forward to updates to correct many serious issues.
