The official Korg site now has a price and release date for the upcoming Mac version of Korg Gadget! Available this month on the 28th, you'll be able to buy the new app at an introductory price of $199 (retail $299).
That is a whole bunch of money, and there is no mention of discounting that price for customers who have already invested heavily into the iOS version. For comparison, you could buy Logic Pro X for $199.
On iOS the price breaks down as follows:
- $40 - Korg Gadget
- $10 - Bilbao
- $10 - Abu Dhabi
- $15 - Kamata
- $15 - Gladstone
- $15 - Madrid
- $30 - Module
- $30 - Lexington (ODDYSEi)
- $35 - Milpitas (Wavestation)
All of that comes out to exactly $200. So the sale price on this is fair, but damn... That is a lot more money to shell out, if you've already spent the same $200 on iOS.
The website notes that the iOS version will be getting the new audio recorder gadget on the 28th as well.
In addition, KORG Gadget for iOS version 3 will also be available February 28 and features the long-awaited Audio Track recording and playback. These gadgets elevate KORG Gadget into the realm of a true all-in-one production studio.
