Sooo,... On the Right Track
The second time I’ve had to write about this program, I can’t resist praising it. They are so ON with the legendary Korg sounds, super awesome layout and superb functionality, I just hope they stay right where they are with the design concept. Please continue to moving forward, the future of music production is here, now and has never been better! Can’t wait to see what they’ll do next!
July 21, 2019: Still totally in love with Korg Gadget 2 progression. Thee most beautiful music app on iOS ever. Every time I get a new gadget it surprises me! The sounds in these modules are so inspiring. I need one more drum module that I can directly sample into with filters and such. Not that I don’t love the Recife and LONDON already! Audio recording needs only a few more editing functions, should be on the way I hope. 👍🏽
I’m so blown away by the design of the modules that I just had to say something about it one more time. The attention to detail are so accurately nice. For example, the shine of the piano’s ebony lacquer luster is awesome. Some modules even have finger printers on them entailing their use. The graphic artist here are awesome. Now I realize all of this would be irrelevant if the app didn’t sound great, but it does! So the graphics makes it just that more of a plus. You guys are fantastic!
Obsessed. My most used music app on iOS!
I can’t possibly review every in app purchase I’ve made. I love gadget, but ultimately I wish it had more full daw features. Cubasis and Auria pro are more for that work. This app isn’t really for tracking multiple instruments for more than 16 bars. I hate swapping apps though so I mostly stay in gadget... or don’t use it at all. The base package of sounds allows for loads of stuff to get you started, but you might want to pick some of the extra in app purchases to fill out your palate of styles. I recommend Bilbao, Kamata, and Gladstone to name a few. Everything goes on sale regularly for the summer so hold out money’s tight. The sounds that come out of here are so good your brain will EXPLODE! Now that I’ve lost my mind, I have a few ideas for features like add a lyric gadget that lets you do karaoke style lyrics. Custom Pads with an arp like beatmaker 3 would be nice. Using bm3 as midi into gadget is not great as the timing seems to suffer occasionally. Bm3 allows a for a hardware pad to be bound to the bm3 apps pad (focus actions). Allowing a hardware pad midi note to be bound this way allows for scales to be input easily via another menu, along with an arpeggiator. I bring my iPad everywhere because of this app!!!
MAC + IPad version pricing
Gadget is great for quickly developing song ideas, and even writing complete songs, especially, if you later export them to Ableton, and finalize with EQ, compression, etc.
The problem I have with Kong and Gadget has to do with pricing, and Korg’s understanding of the customer (I have both the Mac and iPad versions of Gadget, and I also own all the individual Korg instrument plugins on the Mac and IPad). On the Mac, you get all the plugins, and you can use them in any DAW. That is absolutely great - thank you! On the iPad, you don’t get all the plugins, and lots of them are priced as if they’re very special. Korg has a user ID which only knows about my ownership of the Mac version of Gadget, not the individual plugins, and not the iPad versions. The upgrade to Gadget2 on Mac has a special price for me of $100, which gives me nothing new, and I need to spend another $100 on the iPad, to get the plugins that I’m already using on the Mac. Korg can charge whatever they want, but as somebody who likes and owns a lot of Korg products, I find the business and customer side of Korg far behind the technical side. In my opinion, they should know what I own, and make it easy and meaningful for me to upgrade everything, so that I can use any platform, not nickel and dime me in different ways, and ultimately not get another penny from me.
