All the synths are real. Theres also 2 sample players that can be purchased separately. Bilbao is like an MPC and Abu Dhabi is a loop slicer. Load your own samples into those Gadgets and you'll have a lot of fun making beats with them. The thing I love about Gadget is that it's stable and reliable. I can't say the same for Cubasis and loading IAA or AU instruments. Too much **** goes wrong, settings aren't saved properly, crashes, etc. So Gadget don't have any of those issues. It's pretty solid.


Thanks for the info man.. yea, Cubasis was a bit to unstable for me.. just wanted to make sure the actual gadget synths were real synths first and not some synth lookalike playing dedicated samples, guess I'm just paranoid.. might have to **** with gadget though, Cubasis was a waste of Fukin money on my end.


No problem man. I'm a synth junky and an analog snob. So I'm picky with virtual analog. But it's come a long way. The synths that come with Gadget are pretty good. But they're fairly simple with their parameter set. But they're easy to work with and sound good, If you buy the ARP Odyssei, you get the Lexington gadget, which sounds 10x better than the stock synths. There's a lot you can do with Gadget.. With 6 insert effects per instrument (it's also got sidechaining) you'll get a bangin' sound out of your mix. There's no other all-in-one app that can come close to Gadget. It's the best $20 you'll ever spend. With every update, it gets even better.

That's another 20 quid you've cost me DT! :lol:

I think this one might be the best yet. I'm not sure why you can't save your sounds in Gadget though? :hmmm:

:lol: I knew you weren't gonna wait for a sale. I wasn't gonna wait either. That could be several months from now. I've been wanting this for a while now. Totally worth $20 to use on my iPad, iPhone, and in Gadget. I just got back from work, so I didn't get time to play around with it much. So I haven't caught up with the limitations you came across yet. But now that I'm kickin' back, I'm gonna take a look at that and try to import some random presets I saved on my phone while I was at work.

I bought the Moog Model 15, iSEM and iVCS3 in the sale, so I thought I'd grab this at full price. I'm totally inundated with synths now! :mrgreen:

Good choices. All 3 are very good emulations in my book. BTW we also ended up saving money on iWavestation, as I noticed it's 33% off until January 5th. :nod:

That's good to know. It's a great synth for the money. 8)

I noticed Gadget is now at version 2.9. I'm wondering what 3.0 will bring... :popcorn:

Yeah, I was just looking at the version number yesterday and that caught me by surprise as well. They went from 2.6 right up to 2.9, which leads me to believe they're ready to get on with working on 3.0. From looking at the dates of the updates, 3.0 could be here by February. :popcorn:

I just found out about an easter egg in iWavestation. They must have hired JJ because there's a Pong game built in. Go to the INFO button on the top left. Press where it says Version 1.0.2 and that'll take you into the game.

So I got a Korg Nanokey Studio for Christmas. This controller really changes things for me. I'm really enjoying Gadget even more with it's built-in mapping. This compact but powerful little setup makes me feel less interested in the new MPCs that were leaked. It's cool being able to sit on the couch and make some music without having cables get in the way. My Novation Launchkey 25 is cool. But it's a bit too large to sit down with comfortably. I was gonna sell it. But the Launchkey makes a good Reason controller with it's own built-in mapping as well. Plus it takes up less desktop space than my Axiom 49.

I had no idea that Virsyn app was an AU. I gotta have a look at that. I still gotta catch up on Beatmaker 3 specs. If it don't host AUs then I'll pass. Speaking of AUs, have you tried Troublemaker yet? Best TB-303 emulation on iOS so far, and it also runs standalone with Ableton Link.

I was hoping that it would have some sort of tempo track .. I'd then use this live as a stem backing track player...

The scene addition is awesome ..
