  1. Looking forward to this. If it is priced anywhere near the iOS price, it will be a no-brainer.

    Would love to see AU support in iOS both in the Gadget app and for gadgets as AUs in other apps.

    1. Should run on any PC running macOS. Won’t run on a Mac running Windows though.

      More seriously, porting from iOS to macOS is pretty easy since the frameworks and OS are very similar.

      I expect we’ll see a Windows version soon (?) – who knows, maybe even Rack Extensions…

      In the mean time though, it will be nice to be able to use the gadgets in Logic… 😀

  2. I love KORG’s Gadget on iOS – and it’s so intuitive to use and so easy to tweak all the controls on-screen in real-time. But I’m now really going to hanker after a Mac with a giant touchscreen – like the new Windows machines – time Apple caught up with the times…
