  • I love Korg. 😎

    By Nomad Scorpio
    So... this is an amazing daw. However, it could be better. What it does well: excellent sound quality. Signature classic synths, easy to use interface. Lots of options you literally don't need any other daw, has audio input for guitar, vocals, etc... it's a beautiful feature rich daw by a brand that has a legacy that is 2nd to none. Where it needs to improve: while the interface is unique... it is also counter intuitive to all other daws, the scroll down feature instead of left to right does not feel natural. While they try to separate themselves and stand out It's not an improvement and it feels like a struggle to visualize where things go. If this is your first daw it won't matter but when you try one in landscape you will say... " oh wow...this makes more sense." It really disrupts the flow. There is no counter, at least not one I could find that tells me song length, so I have to use a stop watch on my phone to see how long my song is? That seems like a basic feature.
  • Gadget is 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

    By Cheeba Charlie!
    If your thinking about getting this, get it. By itself Gadget is a beast. If you want to sample into it, you’ll have to purchase another add on, but this is and can be your studio. If 4you use it just for the synths, you can use it as a multitimbral sound module. I’m telling you bro (or sis) you need this app!!! It’s rock solid does not crash and has more sounds and synths in it than you can imagine. Don’t let the price scare you. You’re getting way more than the asking price.
  • My favorite composition software

    By The king of canada
    With all the new gadget adds, it always feels fresh. Much needed features keep coming along. Korg should it up to other synth app and drum machine vendors. I'm Norhythmic on soundcloud and I use it exclusively in most of my tracks. I feel like I'm pretty adept with the feature set so it could give you a good idea what it can sound like.
  • Sounds great, looks great

    By Dvsmxwl
    One of the best music making apps out here. I have a bunch and the sounds and graphics in korg gadget surpass just about everything in its style. I have used the camera kit with a usb midi keyboard. I have used an irig keys pro with it. I have used a class compliant usb audio midi interface (akai EIE/IO) with multiple midi controllers simultaneously. If you want it get it its cool

    This is a very fun and powerful iOS app. Just wish I had known about the VST version when it was released for $199.00. I want it but it is $299.00 right now. Waiting for a price drop. In the meantime this iOS version used with an Alexis Dock IO is pretty effective. The sounds and Gadgets are quite impressive.
  • Six stars

    I absolutely love this app!!! I wish I could say the same with regards to my iPad. It tends to get a little glitchy after adding a few effects and automations. Time for an upgrade.
  • Good for Urban Music Production - needs a bit more

    By john10:10_music
    I have been using v3.3.2 for a few weeks now and I really like it. My first degree is in Recording Arts (now I work in electrical engineering) and I have owned quite a bit of music gear. Now that I am making room for children and making music less of a priority, I really needed a more compact solution for music production - Gadget (paired with a Korg NanoKey Studio controller) has been a great compromise. My only complaints are in how irritating it can be to work with pre-recorded loops. Even with Bilbao and Abu Dhabi (an MPC-style sampler and a loop "mangler") loops aren't as straight forward as one would expect. When I work with loops, features like auto-chop and time-stretch can be really helpful. I would also love a way to record audio tracks - but this can be done in other software. For the price, Gadget is totally worth it - but, if Korg wants to help me out with the loops thing, that'd be great;)
  • Korg, ipad, MUSIC!

    The Best keeps getting better...
  • Ultimate Solution for Traveling

    By Breakzilla
    I travel almost every week for work, and for months I've been sweating over not being able to bring my Moog or Prophet on the road. Bringing a second laptop and Ableton live just isn't as portable as one would wish (especially for airplanes). I took a gamble and bought Kori Gadget... GLAD I DID! This tool is the PERFECT sketch pad for the road, and when you come home you can rebuild with your real instruments. Korg hit the ball out of the park with this!
  • I love what I know so far

    By el em en o pees
    I'm enjoying playing with Gadget. I have not yet made a whole track yet. I wish there were more audio features.
