  • 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.

    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.
  • Need to make improvements

    By Kevin Michael Miami 1
    Sadly still having trouble with gadget. Unable to record audio into Auria pro, who threw it back on Kong and unable to record into Cubasis as well. So it appears as though it is a problem with gadget. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  • Missed Opportunity

    By FlavorMagic
    Great sounds. A bit pricey for all instruments. There is no undo/redo button (whah). There is no auto save button. If your not very careful app will delete song you worked so hard on.
  • Very good music app, but still has flaws I wish were gone

    By Korg Fan
    Whether I draw notes or record it, I find Gadget to have the best workflow of most music apps. I wish I can divide parts of my songs to patterns in Cubasis. It’s also great that you can automate parameters of synths. My biggest problem with Gadget is that some of the Gadget synths don’t need to exist. I think Helsinki is the worst Gadget because it is literally just a tone generator with a sub-oscillator, filter, and bitcrusher. Lisbon and Kiev are what Helsinki should be. I am also disappointed by the lack of oscillator sync in Wolfsburg and Phoenix. Besides, when will MS-20 and Polysix finally have Gadget counterparts. I love Chiang Mai, Kiev, Phoenix, and Kamata. Korg Gadget is often a battery eater depending on the Gadgets. It turns the battery life of my iPad from 8 to 6 hours. Otherwise, I am happy with it.

  • Limitless creative power at your fingertips

    KORG Gadget is an incredibly powerful, feature rich, music production & mobile DAW for IOS. It only took me a few sessions until I became familiar with the workflow and interface of Gadget. After which, my tracks really started to really take off. If you own Korg Module, Korg iM1, or ODYSSEi you will have 7 additional instruments in Gadget to choose from. While these additional instruments are a huge plus, they certainly are not a requirement to make brilliant tracks. Recently they have added 3 new instruments comprising; a very realistic sounding acoustic drum module with loads of kits to choose from, An electric and acoustic bass module with a wealth of options and cabinets to choose from, and an 8bit video game music module by Konami. To summarize; Korg Gadget has a very intuitive user interface with dynamic control over every track. Creating high quality music on a mobile DAW has never been this addictive. This is unequivocally by far my favorite Music Production app on iOS period.
