Korg Gadget, an all-in-one iOS production studio, was first introduced in 2014 and now the the mobile suite is heading to the desktop. The company announced that Gadget will soon make the leap to Mac, but it hasn't revealed exactly when that will happen just yet. What we do know is that Korg promises seamless integration between the mobile and desktop versions. This means that you'll be able to start a project during your commute and pick it back up when you get to your studio back home and vice versa.

Gadget provides access to a collection of instruments that range from synths and drum machines to effects and more. Think of it like GarageBand and you will have an idea of what's going on here. All of the instruments and tools, what Korg calls "gadgets," from the iOS version will be available on Mac. What's more, the desktop software will include two new gadgets that enable full recording abilities as well as a new 16-pad drum machine.

This new Mac version of Gadget also includes the "Gadget Plug-in Collection" that plays nice with AU, VST, AAX and NKS. The app works with Allihoopa, Ableton Link and Bluetooth MIDI, too. Korg isn't discussing price either, but we should know more about how much the software will cost and exactly when you will be able to use it when NAMM kicks off next week.
