More Korg Gadget for Mac Details
Thursday, February 09, 2017 by person dysamoria
I've only spent on Gadget during 50% sales. This price is prohibitive for impulse buying. The introductory price should be the maximum price ever. I agree that the plugin capability makes the price more understandable, though.

It's kinda like the worthless sampler in GarageBand, perhaps the most embarrassing sampler of all times...almost outdone by all samplers of the 1980's.

It's not worthless. It's designed for simple and quick sampling, not for competing against dedicated sampling software. It works well for what it is. Korg Gadget could seriously use a sampler like it.
Korg Gadget is Coming to macOS

I moved from Windows PC to Mac a few years back when Apple was doing things right. They've stopped that and are going downhill, but I'm not going back to PC or Windows for anything but gaming (and I don't have the money for a gaming setup anyway). I hate Windows and hate PC hardware voodoo. So, for what it's worth, that's my response to the "switching" comment above...
Excellent. This makes Korg's investment in the software look even more strong/committed. I'm absolutely interested in this, primarily for making porting of Gadget projects to my Mac easier. I'm especially pleased to hear the gadgets will support AU.

I suspect I won't be able to use this on Snow Leopard... :-/
Yeah it sounded stepped to me, as well.

Kenny G played soprano sax, this sounds like a sampled tenor. And the long history of this venerated instrument has not been even remotely relegated to 80s soundtracks, even though this app may emulate that particular style. Please take some time to listen to some authentic acoustic music, not film tropes. Sorry, I just had to say it.

The first time I took sax seriously was the Lost Highway soundtrack. Like I said, it can make some fantastic sounds.
Is there no simpler way to configure controllers to handle NRPN messages?

The instrument can make some fantastic sounds, yet it's been largely relegated to the realm of cheese by tv/film of the 80s... And apps with visual design like this.
Almost every app uses a single touch point to control on screen knobs. Reactable Rotor uses two touch points for knob movements. This is why you see two pads on the bottom of the knob objects themselves. This is also why these plastic bits will do almost nothing in any other app. Try them for other actions that require two touch points, like image rotation (though I'm pretty sure the touch points are too close together).

The knobs look way too lightweight for stable usage. They should be weighted, though they already cost a stupid amount of money.

Overall, the app, with or without the fiddly knobs, looks very fiddly to use. I'm glad I didn't spend any money trying it out. Thanks for saving me some hobby money, of which I have pretty much zero.
