A 5 STAR APP FOR WHAT IT DOES BUT.....
Thanks for giving us the high quality music production workstation that we as mobile musicians have desperately been waiting for!!!! You all are the best.
Update....... I bought gadget the first day it came out and with this new gadget 2 update I both love it and hate it.... Don’t get me wrong it’s still a 5 star app for what it does but to be considered the part 2 version is far fetched and more like a marketing scheme. The term DAW should not be applied to this music workstation because that’s what it is a workstation. Great for creation but that’s as far as it goes. Korg’s unwillingness to add AUv3 just for the effects alone make the mixer worthless to me. Zurich is crap as far as for serious vocal recording goes and I do mean serious so these demo guys should hush saying it can be done no it cannot serious audio engineering CAN NOT be done is this app. I create in Gadget then export the stems... Korg add AUv3 support for effects so we can at least complete our mix in here and while your at it make it look like a traditional DAW at least and make it horizontal so it would be easier to sequence our tracks. Your robbing our pockets we’ve paid the same amount or more than those that purchased the desktop version yet they get more options!?!?! AU support???? Gadget originated in iOS but we get no AU support!!!! That’s my rant great workstation but no DAW!!!!
I love Korg. 😎
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.
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.
