Real-time collaboration and beat making with the KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch

Yes, the Nintendo Switch has a DAW — the KORG Gadget.

The KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch offers an intuitive user interface, 16 unique synth and drum machine gadgets, and most interestingly, the ability to collaborate on a session simultaneously with up to four people in the Multiplayer Mode. This is something that even the most professional DAWs don’t offer, so naturally we had to try it out for ourselves. Check out the video below to see how a few of our team members at Splice came together and created a beat:

More than anything, the experience was tons of fun; twisting joy-cons to alter parameters live and helping out (or accidentally getting in the way of) collaborators’ performances were some of the many enjoyable — and totally fresh — interactions that the KORG Gadget made possible. And although there were moments of chaos, there were also moments where we created some pretty cool sounds that surprised all of us.
