Parallels between propellerhead Reason and Korg Gadget.
I've used Reason off and on since version 1 and the same with Korg Gadget.
Yesterday it hit me how the development of Gadget resembles that of Reason:
1. Reason 1 started out as a very closed system with just some sythesizers and drum machines.
Korg Gadget very much the same.
2. In version 2 midi was added to control external gear.
Enter the Tapei midi gadget in Gadget 2.
3. I believe Reason 2.5 introduced Record, a seperate application which allowed for audio recording.
In a later version Record was incorporated in Reason and so audiotracks where introduced in Reason.
Korg added Zurich in an update.
4. For years people have asked Reason to open up and allow the use of VST's.
It resembles the current requests of Gadget users for allowing the use of AUv3's.
I think it's interesting to see both products (from different era's and platforms) travelling a similar path.
Soo...some speculation... a while back we've got the Stockholm gadget which introduced a piece of Reason in Gadget.
What if Korg Gadget will be the platform for propellerhead to enter the ios game?
Propellerhead is a small company, certainly in comparison to Korg, so suppose Korg buys Propellerhead or at
least strengthens the ties between the 2 companies?
what do you think?
