KORG Gadget - Introduction Movie

A collection of more than thirty Gadgets

KORG Gadget comes with more than 30 gadgets that include our wide range of synthesizers, drum machines, and samplers. Each gadget delivers incredible range of sounds, and provides carefully selected parameters that let you easily achieve the sound you're looking for. This powerful group of gadgets provides complete support not only for electronic music but also for rock, pop, and jazz band sounds. Don't worry if you're not a skilled instrumentalist; Gadget’s intuitive sound and sequencing software we'll help you make great music regardless of the level of your musical knowledge. Simply get started with your favorites from the numerous gadgets that are provided to sound great quickly.

Long-awaited audio track support

Two new gadgets propel KORG Gadget to a new level as an audio-compatible all-in-one production environment. Newly added to the collection are the Zurich gadget for general-purpose recording and the Rosario gadget that's optimized for guitar recording. In addition to the audio gadgets, your sound-creating possibilities are further expanded by Recife, a new type of drum gadget with built-in high-quality samples.

Use as plug-ins

All gadgets will work in any DAW environment as the "Gadget Plug-in Collection," a gigantic collection of plug-ins. This collection is included with the Mac version, providing numerous distinctive and powerful sounds that you can shape by adjusting carefully selected parameters, and use with DAW software (*1) other than KORG Gadget.

*1 Please check the  here for Operability confirmed DAW software.

An intuitive music production workflow

The greatest feature of KORG Gadget is its user interface. It provides an easily understandable layout that divides the fundamentals of music production into four processes - sounds, phrases, sequences, and mix - and lets you perform these tasks intuitively and seamlessly. The iOS version provides two screens that could be switched vertically and horizontally, while the Mac version takes advantage of the large display to let you browse everything in a single screen. We've also been among the first to support the "Touch Bar" that's featured on the new MacBook Pro. You can use the gadget keyboard to perform with Touch Bar. With workflow that lets you move flexibly between different platforms such as Mac, iOS, and the plug-in collection, you'll be guided toward completing your songs without interrupting your musically creative flow.

Also ideal as a second DAW

KORG Gadget is an ideal second DAW for creative artists who are already taking advantage of their main DAW. With KORG Gadget, you can move rapidly through sound design and song production without being distracted by extraneous tasks, letting you access your creativity directly. Since projects can be synchronized in real time via iCloud, you can use the iOS version when you're mobile and the Mac version in your home studio. Demos created using KORG Gadget can be exported to your main DAW. Powerful interoperability with Ableton Live is also a feature. KORG Gadget is destined to become an important key to expressing your ideas within your music production workflow.

Collaborate with creators around the world

KORG Gadget is linked directly to numerous music sharing services around the world. It's among the first to support Allihoopa, which lets users arrange and remix each other's songs. Allihoopa is a service by which songs you've created using applications such as Allihoopa Corporation's Figure and Take, or Propellerhead's Reason, can be shared online. Songs can be sent between musicians anywhere in the world, helping you to improve your own creative skill and letting you enjoy communicating beyond barriers of language.

Make it come alive with new MIDI controllers

To customize your needs, you can freely choose a MIDI controller that complements the KORG Gadget. For example if you're using a nanoKEY Studio or nanoKONTROL Studio, you can record and mix wirelessly. Native support for these controllers means that setup happens automatically. By partnering with a MIDI controller that inspires you, you can improve the quality of your music production.

Experience KORG Gadget with a lite version

You can get a glimpse of the amazing power of KORG Gadget by downloading the free of charge KORG Gadget Le - a lite version of the Mac / iOS. Although there are limitations to the number of gadgets and tracks that you can use, you can experience the seamless and intuitive music production possibilities of KORG Gadget.


  • "A fresh take on iPad synthesis and sequencing from Korg. Simple enough to use but powerful and fun, with some excellent sounds."


  • "If you have an iPad buying Korg Gadget is a no-brainer. If you don't, maybe it's time to bite the bullet!"


  • "From the moment I fired it up, Gadget completely blew me away. It’s the single best iPad electronic music tool I’ve ever used, hands down. Its 15 synths are so specialized, but collectively cover so much ground, that even newcomers can quickly find exactly the sounds they’re seeking. The sequencing and arrangement functions are absolute best of breed for iOS."
