Korg and Nintendo made a commercial... and it's so bad that it's good!

My favourite part is the look of joy on the guy's face when he draws the waveform on Kamata. Twisting those Switch remotes also looks immensely satisfying. The soundtrack could have been "improved" with a little more "Future Bass" IMO... Pan out to the wall at the end. Good times! :p

  • Uggghh. I just wish they’d focus on iOS and macOS for Gadget and give use MidiOUt and AUfx support already and stop being distracted with the Nintendo platform. I can’t imagine it selling that much.

    Hopefully it’s a different dev team doing the work for switch.

    But who knows. Hrmmm.

  • I'm pretty sure development for Switch is a done deal at this stage.

    It is a different team (Detune), the dudes behind iDS-10 and iMS-20.
    They have a bunch of other DS apps available too, wish their iYM2151 would make it to Gadget some point in time :)

  • For iOS & Desktop users this might look as uninteresting news.

    But for millions of kids, tomorrow’s beatmakers and makers of what the future will bring, this is quite a genius move : allowing pretty advanced music production access through a game console, congrats Korg & Nintendo.

    I can’t wait to hear what 5-15 year olds will create!

    Most Switch users are 20+

  • Awful vid. Love to have Gadget on a big screen like that though. iPads need external monitor connectivity.

  • Woah... I should make three friends.

    Ha!
    I have to start with one...

    My question is where’s the camera panning to at the end of the clip

  • I suppose Xbox One & Playstation will be next?........ Shame they didn't do one for Windows (maybe yah, or maybe Nay?).......... Hey Ho!....... Hey, they may make Gadget for Andriod?

    Doubt it. Detune mostly builds these things for Nintendo.

    I think 'they' in this case was not referring to Detune

  • wow. and here i am constantly trying to convince musician friends that gadget is not a toy.
