Korg’s Gadget 2 Software

Korg has bolstered its software offering with the Gadget 2 and the iZotope Ozone Elements bundle. The Gadget 2 is now available as a plug-in for Windows users and comes with six new gadget presets, while the tie-in with iZotope brings a powerful mastering plug-in to selected Korg products.

Korg Gadget 2

The Gadget 2 is a production software that comes with more than 30 different synth options and drum machines, collectively known as “gadgets”. And after a long wait for Windows compatibility, fans will finally be able to access the software on their PCs.

There will also be six new gadgets added to the software’s library. Two of them are unconfirmed as yet, but here are the others:

Memphis: A semi-modular analogue synthesizer
Pompei: A 6voices analogue synthesizer
Taipei: A MIDI-out control module
Durban: A bass effect processor

Other updates include a redesigned main screen view – that helps you to keep tabs on all your tracks – as well as a new tempo-change option, and a fade-in/out function.

You’ll now be able to master your tracks with the suite of options from the Ozone Elements, including the Master Assistant tool and Ozone Maximizer. The former studies your audio’s sonic profile and offers useful suggestions, while the latter functions as a powerful mastering limiter.

The Korg Gadget 2 is available from February, while the iZotope bundle can be accessed from 23 January. More information at
