Korg releases Gadget for iPad - Mobile Synthesizer Studio
23rd January 2014
Korg has released Gadget for iPad, a mobile synthesizer studio that offers "the ultimate mobile synth collection" for iPad. It was designed for "anyone looking to explore software synthesis, musicians looking for a diverse palate of synths in one integrated app, or those looking to take their iPad music production to the next level".
Korg Gadget offers a collection of 15 different synthesizers and drum machines called "Gadgets", which can be freely combined to create powerful electronic music (on the latest iPad-as of January 2014-more than 20 Gadgets can be run simultaneously).
The parameters of each Gadget in the app are carefully constructed to provide immediate access to the most useful sounds, and are ideal for producing all forms of electronic music. No musical instrument experience is required- each synth offers a keyboard featuring a Scale function that makes it impossible to play wrong notes, combined with a sequencer that supports the function.
Examples of included synths (full list is available on www.korg.com):
Korg Gadget lets song ideas be captured anywhere, any time. By connecting an external MIDI keyboard via the Camera Connection Kit, the 15 synths can be played from a real keyboard. A range of iOS music technology is also supported, including AudioCopy, and WIST.
Song data can be exported as audio data or MIDI data for a variety of uses. Songs can also be shared to the GadgetCloud* for connecting to users around the world.
Korg Gadget is compatible with iOS 7 or later, running on iPad Air, iPad mini Retina, Fourth-generation iPad, Third-generation iPad, iPad 2, or iPad mini.
The Korg Gadget for iPad is available now in the iTunes App Store priced at $28.99 (Special introductory pricing until Feb 23, then $38.99).
