KORG has announced the release of the latest update to Fairbanks for KORG Gadget 2 on Mac, and KORG Gadget 2 Plugins for Mac and PC. This adds about 132 sounds to the Fairbanks Gadget from the KORG Module series sound packs ‘90s IDM’, ‘mimoPop’, ‘Plucks and Mallets’, and ‘Manipulated Voices’. The update also introduces compatibility with Native Instruments’ NKS, allowing users to play and adjust pre-mapped parameters in KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE immediately after loading the plug-in.

The second edition KORG Gadget 2 has been dramatically updated; packed with new features and new gadgets. With a brand new design and colour scheme on the main screen, you can easily check each track at a glance. The highly requested feature to smoothly change the tempo can be set with each scene. With the touch of a button, you can fade in/fade out. Four new IFX are included — feedback reverb, enhancer, exciter, and saturator — extending the range of your music production.

The KORG Gadget 2 has more than 40 gadget instruments in its collection, including compact synthesizers, drum machines, samplers, audio, MIDI utilities, and more. In order for anyone to be able to easily find the sounds they want, we have provided sophisticated parameter configurations, so you can instantly realise your ideal sound. Powerful gadget groups such as electronic music, rock, pop, jazz, and even band sounds are available.

With KORG Gadget 2, it is possible to flexibly link with various hardware devices. Produce music with hardware synthesizers, rhythm machines, etc in ways that were not possible until now. By entering a phrase into the intuitively operated gadget sequencer, and using the newly added Taipei gadget for a seamless connection with various MIDI devices, you can connect without software. 

With KORG Gadget 2, you can freely select the MIDI controller best suited for your purposes. For example, nanoKEY Studio and nanoKONTROL Studio can step record and mix wirelessly. Because they support KORG native mode, the controllers are automatically optimised for KORG Gadget 2 just by connecting to it, and each gadget, transport, etc, can be set up and used without worrying about setting up hardware like knobs and sliders.

KORG Gadget 2 can be used with iOS, Mac, via plug-in (Mac/PC), and Nintendo Switch. On iOS and Mac, you can share your ideas by seamlessly using iCloud or an Ableton Live project, and using plugins in your favourite DAW; for Nintendo Switch, share seamlessly via QR code.
