Korg Gadget-VR takes music producing from the studio to the headset

Electronic music production will be possible in VR with an upcoming app from Korg.

Over the years, Korg’s Gadget app has allowed for software-based music production on platforms ranging from iOS to Switch, and now it’s making the jump to virtual reality. We don’t know much about Gadget-VR, like how much it will cost or what platforms it’s going to be available on (a brief trailer starts off with what appears to be a $299 Oculus Quest 2 headset), but the idea is intriguing.

According to Korg, the Unreal Engine-powered tool will allow tech-forward music producers to surround themselves with virtual sequencing equipment of all types and create with gadgets from the virtual table. Whether or not its a replacement for synthesizers that exist in the real world, maybe it provides more options than would feasibly fit in a real studio, complete with a layout that’s more friendly than most software-based apps.
