To promote the launch of KORG Gadget on Switch this week, a new trailer for the music creation software is now available. Have a look at the video from KORG below.

The music creation software KORG Gadget launched on the Switch eShop this week. Unfortunately, it has a major limitation. Currently there is no native way of exporting any music created.

What does that mean if you’re looking to take your song outside of KORG Gadget? The developer currently recommends recording the audio from either the headphone output in the body of the Switch, or from HDMI audio output. Obviously that isn’t ideal.

Yesterday, we reported that the music production software KORG Gadget would launch next week in Japan. The North American release date was confirmed today – it will also launch next week, on April 26. It’ll be digital-only and cost $48.

KORG Gadget will finally launch for Switch in Japan next week, a listing on the eShop reveals. Pricing is set at 5,000 yen.

KORG Gadget is music creation software. You can make music by twisting and turning the Joy-Con, collaborate with up to four others in making music, and more.

We have additional details about the release below.

KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch was revealed last year, but concrete info on the music production software has been pretty sparse. Today, the official website for KORG Gadget has finally been updated with some new details, which we’ve compiled below. Sadly, no update on its release date, which is still listed as “Spring 2018”.

Play Games. Make Music.  A Music Creation Studio That Feels Like a Game.

Award-winning music creation software KORG Gadget is now available for the Nintendo Switch. Plentiful instrumental gadgets combined with a simple and intuitive graphical interface enable speedy music creation. 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.

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.

KORG Gadget footage

Posted on 6 months ago by (@NE_Brian) in Switch eShop, Videos | 2 Comments | 0 Likes

Detune has published several new videos for KORG Gadget on Switch. Find the full roundup of footage below.

A few days ago, we learned that the music creation tool KORG Gadget is coming to the Switch in 2018. While KORG Gadget has found a niche on the DS and 3DS family as well as some Apple platforms, not much is known about the Switch release.

Maybe this will clear things up. A mini website has been released today specifically for Switch news updates. You can access that website here.

It is implied that the website will be updated as more news rolls out, but for now it’s pretty bare-bones. Either way, it is good to know that all Switch updates for this software will be collected in one place.


We don’t have a whole lot of information at present, but KORG Gadget is coming to Switch. It’s being advertised at the M3 event in Japan this weekend. Material at the show reveals the Switch title, along with a Spring 2018 launch window.

KORG has appeared on both 3DS and DS over the years. Basically, it’s music creation software.

KORG Gadget has previously appeared on Mac and iOS. It comes with 30 small synthesizers and “gadget” drum machines. You’re able to “freely combine these to produce anything from powerful electronic music to rock music.” The Switch version will seemingly allow four people to collaborate on music creation.
