  • Midi

    By BallFindlers
    This would be perfect with midi out but still no midi out
  • Please Add Arpeggiators to All the Synths

    By john xxero
    while i appreciate that the lisbon has an arpeggiator, i wish all the synths had them, especially the analog modelled ones. the odyssey and mono/poly standalone versions have arpeggiators, if i'm not mistaken, but that functionality has been removed on the gadgetized versions of those synths. i know korg is pretty good at listening to their users, so please help a brother out. i need to make some bangin' techhouse. thank you.
  • Fun

    By Ray-Dee3000
    This app is tremendous fun.
  • Almost!

    By Dj Ed Nine
    Best work flow. Only issu i have is the chord notes sound very annoying. Hope this changes in gadget 2.
  • Cool app for sho... until you start to edit.

    By Applesnoranges99
    This is a decent app, but I rarely use it anymore. All the gadgets work well, are fun to use and sound great, but the freakin piano roll is a nightmare if you actually want to be productive with it. Suggestions: Piano roll to follow cursor. Right now you have to manually scroll to keep up with the cursor. Barf. Be able to place the cursor in piano roll and start from there, instead of always having to start from the beginning. No cursor placement makes this app tedious and time consuming to edit the piano roll. Gag. Tapping on a note in the piano roll to equal play the note instead of deleting it. Long press can be delete note. As it stands, it’s way too easy to delete notes in the piano roll. Too much time spent redoing notes I never meant to delete. Pain in the butt. The piano roll is where most of the song writing action takes place. The way it stands, it’s way too time consuming to be productive. I’m good for about 30 minutes before I just get frustrated, quit the app and watch porn or something. Have the transport controls visible when a gadget is in full screen mode. Right now you have to bounce in and out of the gadget full screen to access the play, stop and record buttons. This is an easy fix guys. To be able to slide the keyboard up and down note by note in the gadgets instead of octave by octave. When you sometimes need a few notes above the octave as well as the current octave. As it stands you have to make the keyboard smaller to get the notes you want instead of just being able to slide the keyboard a few notes up or down. I totally agree with another reviewer here in that if you own the desktop version, the iOS version plus gadgets should be free! Why for f*#ks sake should we have to buy this app twice!!! Thanks
  • Five Star Rating. Less in Functionality

    By JB5056
    I really love the sounds this makes and struggled with what to rate. For now I am speaking to the functionality. I use Auria Pro and also Cubasis and cannot use the app in either without workarounds. Why does it not show up in Inter-App or Audio-Units? It would make using the app so much easier.
  • Last update made unstable the app

    By Nick45689143
    The apps suddenly closed when a midi controller is employed as input due to last update. I reported the problem over 2 months ago and I have received no response from the developer. That is no acceptable especially if you invest in this app over $100
  • Gadget is awesome

    By Adam G Evan$
    The power it packs is phenomenal. My room was filled with hardware sequencers and samplers. It’s all in one Gadget now. Keep it up korg. Loyal fan and producer Adam G Evans
  • I love it

    By bmoreblocs
    I love this product very easy to use and the variety is superb!! I really wish there was a desktop version..
  • I love this app, BUT...

    By TxffyTxffy
    I bought the full version for Mac and I would like to be able to open projects that I started on my phone into Korg Gadget for Mac and finish them there. If this feature exists please let me know how I can do it. I also feel like if you own the full version on Mac you should get all the gadgets on the iOS app. I also want better bouncing to pro-tools and a dedicated undo button. Other than these things, I enjoy this app quite a bit. But please allow us to send projects from our phones to the desktop app. That would change my whole life! Thanks guys!
