Whilst this is a surprise it’s also very welcome. In many ways it’s the next step for Gadget, and an obvious step. We’ll know a bit more next week as things become clearer, but there are a few points to note already that I think are important.

Firstly, Gadget on the desktop is still going to have Ableton Link, which is excellent news of course. Next and more interesting, is an integration with Allihoopa. Which I think is a first. I think it will be very intriguing to see how that’s done and also if the integration comes to Gadget on iOS as well. Finally I’m keen to see how the iOS to Mac OS connection works as well, and what ‘seamless’ really means.

For now, here’s what’s on the Korg page

The award winning KORG Gadget music production iOS app is soon to be released for the Mac. Building on the smooth operability and intuitive user interface of the iOS version, “KORG Gadget for Mac” provides a new dimension of inspiration for every creative artist.

  1. I hope that the new audio recording and guitar fx multiprocessor gadgets will find their way into the ios version, too. The seemless connection between iOS and Mac gadget makes me hope. The new announced drum gadget would be nice, too.

    The possibility to use audio tracks in gadget would be a game changer, which makes my favourite iOS music production app even more powerful!

    I hope that my interpretation of the announced features and the screenshots is not too far away from what becomes reality 🙂
