  • It would seem...

    By Applesnoranges99
    That korg is confused. They have made the iOS update free, but are charging $100 for the desktop update... and have made the two versions incompatible with each other. Hmmm Why don’t they just make the update for both platforms free and charge for the gadgets? I don’t know... greed?... covert hostility?... too much weed? I mean $100 for an update on a $300 app?!!! This app is now twice as expensive as Apple’s Logic Pro... It’s straight up ridiculous! The gadgets themselves are the best part of the gadget game and on the desktop version you can use them as plugins in your daw, which is the way to go because the gadget software is a very dark nightmare of limitations and bad decisions. If you’re serious about music creation and like the gadget game, just buy the plugins pack and don’t bother with the software.
  • Please Update 5 Year Old Manual!

    By northerntao
    Amazing update. Not only can we use Gadget with the MS-20 and Polysix apps (iPad only, iPhone versions please!) but the MIDI Gadget allows control of pretty much anything with MIDI with the sequencer. But besides the new gadgets and visual adjustments, we could really use a manual update. The in app links just go to the almost 5 year old guides. Please update the documentation - then I’ll give it a full 5 stars

    I love this company, their creativity and engineering is top in the EDM industry in my opinion. This app is no exception, I love this program. I own Nanostudio 2, Cubasis, Fruity Loops is still awful for ipad (even after the update) and i constantly find myself coming back to this program to easily lay down my ideas and most of all to enjoy the experience. The quality of the tools and instruments are outstanding. This is the most intuitive program to me, don’t hesitate with this one. Korg, I’d love to see a Kaoss pad feature or addon, thank you.
  • Version 4.0.2

    By Naughtorious
    Amazing music making app, reminiscent of Reason, latest version just crashes after restoring gadgets, the app doesn't work anymore, I think one of the gadgets is having an issue, also support is pretty useless, I had a different issue where my recorded wave files inside Rosario disappeared, I provided description and screenshots and support's answer was basically asking me to describe the problem, again.

    Needs a new update it would seem, never seem to fully address te issue of random shutdowns/general cruddiness. Don’t waste any money on this.
  • Great app! But please Change app size for iPhone users...

    By Musikman4Christ
    I really like this app! All aspects of the app are great! But download size is a killer for iPhone users not on a near WiFi Connection. Not the apps fault but please make it where the content gets downloaded in stages at least! Apple forces iPhone users to be on WiFi if all download is higher than 150 megs.
  • The grand Gadget 2 Review

    By Ahhz u were
    🖖🏻Well done Korg, Gadget 2 is looking up so don’t stop. The initial offering price was a stroke of genius, couldn’t have resisted given this special price. Have owned and still love all the Korg keyboards I played such as the Polysix, DSS-1, Triton and others. The reason 4 stars was offered for this new release instead of 5, was certainly not due to any lack of effort by the Korg programmers (the Korg sonic quality is thankfully still intact), but...If...only Korg could envision the wisdom of reducing the prices of the many other gadgets and instruments that were -not- included with G2, during this same introductory period, with ‘special’ discounts of their own, well then laddies, could you imagine how many of us would immediately attempt to dig as deeply as possible to add not merely one, but -several- of those additional gadgets/instruments sitting there alone in the iOS shoppe? Such a grand, generous gesture by Korg to so many loyal musicians would generate good will, and surely have the competition’s marketing departments hanging their heads shame. A bit of extra income would give Korg more time and incentive to remain hard at work on the next batch of improvements we need! 🎹🎼🎶😎

    I love you guys and this absolutely wonderful and powerful app. Just please consider changing the dark background you put in after the update.
  • KorgGadget 2 brings IOS Troubles.

    By Whatsjob
    Hello I just updated to korg gadget 2 from gadget 1 and I would’ve loved to leave a positive review but your update is causing migraines here’s my frustration with what you guys call a update the midi portion right I use BeatMaker 3 and gadget together or used to because now for whatever reason I’m not sure if this was on purpose or system malfunction but gadget no longer allows me to use it coupled with beat maker 3 with my midi control I wished Korg Gadget would listen to its consumer base about having auv3 abilities but it doesn’t even have iaa abilities anymore this disheartening what ever you guys broke in this version 2 I hope you fix it soon. Signed a unhappy customer.
  • Korg is great but Dissapointed in update

    By Pangoat
    Still no audiobus in. Korg is really not part of the rest of the ios music making ecosystem. They refuse to drop this weird cash grab business model and actually make something more useful. Have you seen the developer responses? It's like talking to a chatbot Look I really like aspects of gadget and the new bass Note editor is still a mess. Just get nanostudio 2. Its a thousand times better and I regret spending so much money on something with significantly worse sound quality. Nanostudio 2 is amazing and the UI is 👌
