Korg has released Gadget for iPad, a mobile synthesizer studio that they say 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. Here's Korg's description of it...

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 Januray 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 here):

Brussels - Monophonic Anthem Synthesizer
This synthesizer gadget has a simple parameter structure with an intuitive user interface. Its thick unison tones provide the lead sounds needed for any type of electronic music.

Dublin - Monophonic Semi-Modular Synthesizer
This semi-modular synthesizer gadget with classic, vintage looks is especially good for deep bass sounds. In addition to being capable of straightforward yet deep subtractive synthesis with a plain waveform and filter, it also offers a wide range of varying tones via patching.

Miami - Monophonic Wobble Synthesizer
In addition to the bass sounds that are indispensable for today's electronic music, it features an "X-MOD" oscillator that generates complex overtones and modulation, and a "CRUSH" filter that adds distinctive noise. "WOBBLE" modulation can shift the character to produce a wobble sound evocative of an evil monster, often heard in Brostep and Dubstep.

Korg Gadget lets song ideas be captured anywhere, anytime. 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.

Pricing and Availability:

The Korg Gadget for iPad will be available January 2014. Special Introductory Price : $28.99 (25% OFF)
