Nicalis, Inc. today announced a physical edition of KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch, the music production studio from legendary musical equipment manufacturer KORG and co-developer DETUNE Ltd. of Japan. Preorders are now open at store.nicalis.com in advance of the December 4, 2020 release date.
KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch allows pro-quality music sequencing and mixing with 16 different virtual sound machines called “gadgets.” Each gadget has a different name, look and function: Chicago is a brushed-metal acid house bass machine, Kingston is an arcadelike chiptune cabinet, Kiev is an industrial “vector synthesizer” and so on.
The physical edition will include a 60-page instruction manual inside the package, one of the most thorough booklets that has ever been created to accompany a console game release. As KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch is a professional-grade music creation tool, working musicians and composers are sure to appreciate the permanence of having the entire software suite in a durable, portable form factor.
Also featured in KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch is a special mode that challenges players to create a song within a set time limit, plus multiplayer options (local or online) that allow up to eight people to collaborate on making music. It’s a digital audio workstation that plays like a game.
The physical edition of KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch will be available on December 4, 2020 for $49.99 MSRP.
