Today Korg announced that their self-contained DAW Gadget is heading over to macOS! This includes "all of the more than 30 gadgets" which will be available for use inside of Gadget for macOS; as well as a collection of VST/AU/AXX plug-ins with the purchase of Gadget. So you can use Gadgets in other DAWs too!
The official site also mentions two new gadgets are coming with the macOS version. First up is a long-awaited audio recorder, and the second is a 16 pad drum gadget. Although the website doesn't explicitly state that these gadgets will come out for iOS, I am hearing some credible rumors that they both will. The rumors also mention new effects are coming to iOS.
