Electronics and musical instruments manufacturer KORG announced that it will launch its music production studio KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch next week.
With this new music creation studio, one can create and perform music by actively twisting and turning the Joy-Con.
There is also a multi-player mode in which up to four people can collaborate in making music. Connect via an HDMI cable to enjoy playing on the TV in your living room, or use it with a projector for big live performances. Everyone can enjoy this new game-like DAW experience.
Here’s more on its key features:
Employs the intuitive KORG Gadget user interface
The KORG Gadget’s most amazing feature is the intuitive music creation workflow, enabled by the KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch user interface. Sound, Phrase, Sequence, and Mix are contained in an intuitive layout, and allow for seamless music creation. Also, it can also be set to “scale mode” to match the song. Even those who are unaccustomed to synthesizers are able to enjoy creating songs.
16 unique synthesizer and drum machine gadgets
The KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch includes 16 gadget instruments required for music creation. In addition to numerous unique synthesizers, ready-to-use drum machines and Kamata jointly developed with BANDAI NAMCO STUDIO are all included. All gadgets have sophisticated adjustable parameters for rapidly producing all manner of sounds. You will find inspiring sounds quickly and easily.
Actively create and perform by operating the Joy-Con
Joy-Con sensors allow for enjoyable creation and performance of HD effects. For example , turn the Joy-Con to turn the knob on a gadget, or twist to enter or play the notes of a scale that matches the song. In both cases, HD vibration matching the movement is transmitted to the hand, so you can experience sensory feedback that has never been available in software before. In addition, it is also possible to perform and input using the Joy-Con buttons and sticks. Try challenging yourself in various ways.
Multi-player mode allows for collaboration by up to 4 people
We’ve added a multi-player mode that allows up to 4 people to collaborate on a song. This new style allows four people to play simultaneously on a screen divided into four parts. Each player can be responsible for his or her own part, or you can make it a DAW competition – perhaps erase or add the notes of another player, and turn music creation into a game!
The Living room, mobile: Play wherever you’d like
Using the Nintendo Switch dock’s HDMI cable, the KORG Gadget can be played on your TV. You can create a song on the big screen, or enjoy collaborating with up to four people. Also, by outputting to a screen, you can even using the Joy-Con for a live performance. Create music with this studio anytime, anywhere by choosing between TV Mode, Table Mode, Mobile Mode, etc.
