  • Greatest Music Production App for iPad

    By Jesse002
    Hands down the best. Rich revitalized digital instruments revived from some of the greatest eras of music. Powerful sounds. Great modular interface that’s quick and intuitive, perfect for live performance and song creation.
  • Gadget is on another level!

    By Support the bus
    I’ve been using Gadget for a long time now. I’ve been making the best music I’ve ever made, it lets me focus more on the music. My biggest gripe at the moment is simply that I can’t get the new gadgets on my phone, ie- the iMS20 Gadget, I have it on my ipad, why can’t I get it on the iPhone? All I mostly make music on, is my phone. It’s the reason I fell in love with Gadget, because I can make music anywhere, but I don’t bring my iPad everywhere, I ALWAYS have my iPhone on me. Other than that, I even love the update, now I can use AU synths in AUM with Gadget controlling it, I love it. Just please don’t ever change the workflow too much, it’s close to perfection the way it is. Great App. Highly recommended.
  • Auv3 please

    By Dj Ed Nine
    My 2nd favorite tool to make music. Can you please make an auv3 module so we can use 3rd party synths as plugins/modules? Thanks.
  • 4.1 Unstable on iPad Air 2?

    By MusicDude70
    First install looked great for literally 3 minutes before an unrecoverable crash...trying a reinstall because relaunch and reboot/relaunch didn’t work. Will update my review if the situation changes. -=-=-=- Reinstall seems to have helped, but there is some small lag. While technically compatible, perhaps not glitch free without the latest/greatest Apple toy. Will get deeper into this and post more updates...
  • Some bugs

    By BallFindlers
    Bilbao stops accepting samples after the first sample is selected from audioshare
  • Add more drums and synths

    By Huybgtrfvnjug
    Plz do
  • Great app, developer is responsive

    By intrawl
    This app is a fun and unique way to make music. The most recent update addressed some concerns I had with the interface color scheme. As a user of Korg Gadget 1 for Mac, I’m very happy to see that project files are compatible with that version again.
  • V2 Korg you’re the best!

    By AR nord
    Love the new midi device tool!!! Thank you developers!!! And korg design team for improving the visibility and listening to your users. Don’t stop building new synths and tools. please add more exotic scales we need more control for writing trance and old goa style tracks. Maybe you can let the user pick what song mode vertical or horizontal layout that will definitely help to streamline production as traditional DAW some of us tend to start putting ideas but then moving into computer for additional processing.
  • Please improve copy/paste tracks between scenes. Please!

    By Tmidiman
    Importing a midi file into Gadget has become so much better. Because of that I’ll add another star! Thanks to the Gadget team! Another improvement that I love, being able to transpose selected notes in the piano view. This is a big improvement and adds to a great workflow. The next major improvement is the copy/paste of bars. Moving a bar from one scene to another deletes the previous bars in that scene. Gadget needs to be better at nondestructively moving around bars to different scenes. I should be able to either prepare a place to copy the information or Gadget should ask where to place it (what bar and beat) and built out the existing bar as needed. It doesn’t have to be fine tuned. Just let me copy over one or two bars nondestructively to another scene and I’ll be able to edit the rest as needed. Freedom with editing is what takes a DAW from being a toy to being a useful creative tool. Another improvement, please update the manuals. There are features people need to know about that make Korg Gadget 2 one of the best iOS DAWs. Lastly, Gadget is such a great tool. The sounds, flexibility, and features make it the top DAW for feeding your creativity. My only other request for future expansion would be more acoustic drum and bass Gadgets along with another guitar amp modeling Gadget. Add that with IR importing would be even better!
