Can I play using an external MIDI keyboard? KORG app September 23, 2020 21:06 Follow Of course! You can play Gadget using an external MIDI keyboard such as nanoKEY2 or microKEY, taktile etc. via iPad Camera Connection Kit / Lightning USB Camera Adapter. Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Comments Mike Beecher January 25, 2014 14:54 Using a Korg PA-600 through the camera kit usb connection, all synths in the Gadget app play perfectly except the Sustain pedal does not work (no filters set) and I have verified that Control Change 64 is being sent correctly. Is this an error? Mike Beecher Comment actions Permalink Ted Kusio February 22, 2014 19:54 I'm using an Akai MPKmini. How can I get the dials/keyboard controls to wortK with Gadget devices? Thanks! Comment actions Permalink Mike Beecher February 22, 2014 23:42 Connecting Akai MPK Mini midi controller to Korg Gadget app in iPad. There shouldn't be a problem. You will need to use the mini-USB cable supplied with the Akai and connect this to a powered USB hub to give power to the Akai. Then connect the output from the USB hub to the Apple Camera Connector (USB) to your iPad. You should now have midi control for any Midi controlled app including the Korg Gadget. I like to check the connection first using the Midi Monitor app to see exactly what Midi is being sent. Let me know how you get on! Comment actions Permalink Ted Kusio February 23, 2014 15:38 Thanks Mike. I can play the Akai keyboard no problem, but wanted to use the dials to edit the sounds. WIll try out the Midi Monitor app and see if that helps me see what does what. Midi mapping for Gadget controls would be a damn nice feature in a future version though... :) Thanks again!

Comment actions Permalink Frank Lockwood March 06, 2014 13:19 Yes, I was able to connect my iRig keys and it works fine, Comment actions Permalink Jeroen Kwak April 21, 2014 18:22 I would like to stop, play and switch between scenes with midi (whith the Roland td-9 or Roland Octapad spd-30). I know this is not possible at the moment, but is this a possibility for a next update? It would make the app even better and more useable for live performances!

Yet I cannot make it read it or play. Any suggestions or help please! Comment actions Permalink Vire Bertrand August 11, 2014 07:55 Download MidiBridge !!!

At the moment only the keys and pads work but not the sliders and dials. Thanks Comment actions Permalink KORG app November 05, 2014 23:55 @Compu Guy Each Gadget has different assignment for Control Change events. Dive into Gadget view which you want to control and then tap the Function button. You can see the CC# assign list on the right. Select a parameter you want to control then slide a slider. The slider will be linked with the parameter. Comment actions Permalink Gary Rodriguez December 17, 2014 00:56 Does each gadget or track have a separate MIDI channel? Can you layer more than one gadget to be played together with an external MIDI controller? Comment actions Permalink Stephen Hite January 21, 2015 14:54 Please let me know what keyboards are supported and how to configure. I could not get this to work with my 49 key M Audio WS Comment actions Permalink Gunars Gj May 25, 2015 11:46 Does each gadget or track have a separate MIDI channel? Can you layer more than one gadget to be played together with an external MIDI controller? I think not yet and not with 1.2 :/ but if Korg decides to allow full channelized midi i/o support - that would be a total gadget revolution Comment actions Permalink Nicolas May 26, 2015 16:12 Indeed, that would be a very usefull feature... Also make slave sync Gadget is fine, but it needs a way to send to Gadget loop/unloop tracks, and a midi control to change tracks. Please...

Cuz I want to buy one if it works. :D Comment actions Permalink Jake Kent June 30, 2016 12:51 Hi all. Can anyone help me? I've got a Korg Taktile and can play the midi instruments but controlling all the dials is a bit of a mystery and I can't get any reliable smooth control over anything. What is the best way/settings to use the Taktile with Gadget. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Jake Comment actions Permalink Hans Gustafsson July 18, 2016 15:42 Hi! I am a happy owner of NanoKontrol Studio and wonder how to control Gadget using different scenes from the controller? I would like to be able to have one scene for controlling the mixer (default native mode) and switch to other settings with the scene button and control different parameters in Gadget instruments. When I connect the NanoKontrol with Bluetooth the scene button is dimmed. Next question is how to play chords in Gagdet with one button using a Korg Microkey (or any other external midi keyboard). I know the NanoKey Studio is made for this but is this not possible with other keyboards? Best, Hans Comment actions Permalink Lucas Young December 01, 2016 17:18 Hi Guys I have an iPhone 7 with the full version of Korg Gadget, and a MicroKorg XL+. I'm trying to use a PlugKey to connect the two with no luck. Is there a trick to this, or has anyone had any experience getting this setup to work? Cheers Comment actions Permalink ASHRAF December 05, 2016 10:55 Hi All How can I use Gadgets as sequencer for Kronos, using Kronos sounds, KARMA, & every thing? I mean I dont want to use the gadgets instruments, I just want to hear the My KRONOS sounds, but with using the Gadgets sequencing system like any other DAW system. Regards Comment actions Permalink T Mance December 09, 2016 16:20 I don't think you can just use the sounds of the sounds of the Kronos or any other external workstation, if so please tell me how. I have my Yamaha Montage connected to a Focusrite ITrack dock which has a USB input so very easy to connect with and control audio. Comment actions Permalink ASHRAF December 09, 2016 20:52 Hi TMance, Thanks for reply ,I would tell you if I know, but I don't 😉 I am afraid that makes SOUNDCAMP (the free app from SAMSUNG ) more handy than my purchased KORG GADGETS ! UNLESS KORG PROVE OTHERWISE⏳ Regards Comment actions Permalink Berg Martins Provetti December 26, 2016 23:05 I have the iM1 and the iWavestation on my iPad Air; I have two Roland keyboards, XP50 and D50; how do I play the iPad synths using either one of these keyboards? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Comment actions Permalink Gunars Gj December 27, 2016 08:21 the easiest way is - Plug Key - http://www.korg.com/us/products/computergear/plugkey/ But, of course, there are cheaper and more complex/more capable and more expensive alternatives too Comment actions Permalink Berg Martins Provetti December 27, 2016 11:34 Thank you, Gunars Gj!! Comment actions Permalink Al Mur September 25, 2017 04:00 I am trying to use Xkey keyboard, however when I select chords in the Gadget, I can only play them on ipad screen. If I press a key on the keyboard it plays a single note. Does it mean that the chord function works only on ipad but not on external midi controller? Comment actions Permalink Bertus De Leeuw November 24, 2017 16:38 I have the same problem on my mac, when I use chords I cannot record them. It only plays a single note and when I click with my mouse it will not record.. Comment actions Permalink KORG app November 27, 2017 01:40 Thank you for your message. Current code mode does not work with MIDI input. We will consider the correspondence. Best regards, KORG app team Comment actions Permalink Neil Thomas December 21, 2017 10:51 Just got my Launchkey mk2 paired and working with Korg Gadget on Ipad (great app!) , and i too have discovered that the chord function doesnt translate from the iPad across to the midi keyboard. This would be a great thing to make possible. Comment actions Permalink Gerry McCarthy January 30, 2019 20:48 Hey there. Looks like last reply was more than a year ago. For 2019, what is a good keyboard to plug into an iPad and use with Gadget? I had a iRig 37-key MIDI controller but wasn't happy with it at all. Had some latency issues. Anyway, thanks in advance!
