KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch, a music creation studio that feels like a game, will go on sale on April 26th, 2018. The Award-winning Gadget music creation software combines a simple and intuitive graphical interface with lots of instrumental gadgets to enable speedy music creation. You can create and perform music simply by actively twisting and turning the Joy-Con™.
KORG’s unique Nintendo Switch edition of the versatile Gadget Digital Audio Workstation comes with 16 bundled synthesisers and drum machines (all emulations based on vintage KORG hardware) and will allow you to cover pretty much any electronic genre you can think of (yes, even old chiptunes).
Some of the unique features of this version include real-time pitch control and even piano roll editing using Joy-Con motions and the immensely fun (despite mixed end results) four player composition mode. You can check out the latest video of Sano-san showcasing that mode at a Tokyo club.
In addition, as special content, look out for the serialisation of an original manga “Super Composition Boy Gadgeta”! Just check out the special KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch site which will be updated weekly.
European pricing is unconfirmed at this stage, but in the States KORG Gadget will set you back $48. It will be quite interesting to see not only what people will come up with using the software, but also how artists will begin to incorporate the Nintendo Switch into their live acts.
