At NAMM 2019, KORG introduced not only Gadget 2 for iOS but also for PC & Mac. As promised, it’s available today on the last day of February. An important point here: the PC & Mac versions are two different products. So Windows users get only the 40+ Gadget plugins and not the full Gadget experience with the standalone version. Good from KORG, if you are interested in the plugins so you can only buy the plugin bundle without purchasing the Gadget “DAW”.
Important: the Windows Bundle is not finished yet, so some “Gadget” instruments/effects, as well as support for AAX/NKS, are missing. But this will be updated soon For all Mac users: same as the iOS version, KORG Gadget v2 features a brand new design with a dark blue color scheme, new performance-oriented features as well as 4 new IFX effects (reverb, saturator…).
Further, it comes with several new gadgets (Memphis (MS-20 Synthesizer), Pompei (Polysix), Taipei (MIDI Out) & more. On the whole, the gadget plugin is finally nice to see on Windows.
KORG Gadget is the best all-in-one music production software and plugin collection; the intuitive user interface provides over 40 small synthesizers and drum machines called “Gadgets,” that you can freely combine for music production. Starting with the award-winning iOS edition, followed by Gadget for Mac with its powerful plugin collection, now the Gadget plug-ins are now Windows compatible.” With carefully selected parameters and at-the-ready sounds/presets, you can now use various powerful gadgets with your favorite DAW on your Mac/PC.
With improved sound and utility efficiency, the second generation KORG Gadget 2 has been further enhanced to include six new gadgets. In addition, the intuitive user interface has been polished to improve ease of use. With the new design, you can now check the status of each track at a glance, an additional four new IFX have been included and you can now smoothly change the tempo as well as fade in/fade out.
