Just ordered a new ipad. 128gb model. The 2017 model. Should be here tomorow. Should be a lot faster then the mini 1 model

I am typing this from the new ipad. It is a lot bigger. I also got a tablet case which also can be used to put the ipad up straight on the table. When you open the cover the ipad is activated straight away.

Installation went allright. All apps and data was synced from the cloud. I do have to retype the passwords a number of times. It did take a number of minutes before all apps were downloaded but this all went automatically.

One thing with sprite something. It had all the data from the other ipad but you need to reconfigure each sprite set. The names and cell settings are lost. The original names are named as before in the list but you need to retype it. Not so nice!

I can switch tabs now and the ipad does not have to reload. The overal feel is that it is a lot faster.

Gadget works and can now play the bigger songs that can not play on the mini 1.

installing a new apple ipad is a lot faster and easier than with windows.

Yeah SpriteSomething's "cloud, HONEST!" is a little disappointing.
I've tried not to switch between phone and tablet for that reason. Let the iPad be my Sprite tool, and leave everything there.

But otherwise all is lovely on the iPad. Look forward to hearing some KORG treats from you, soon!

I checked SpiteSomething and it later did add the settings to the files. Luckely I did not edit each file before that since that ones got doubled.

With Gadget there is a problem. The GadgetCloud is not working. It does work on the old ipad.
I do not know if it can upload yet. I have not tested this yet but nothing can play from there and keeps loading forever.
Also, all the songs I made before are now listed twice in the load box.

There have been more problems with the internet connection. I had to disable/enable the wifi a couple of times.

On further gadget note. That gadget odyssei is still on sale until the 20th. So I might get that one soon, maybe in a few hours.

The tablet cover is big dissapointement. I tried to put the loader in and the cover blocks the plug. I checked google and I saw one post about the Air 1 having a problem with that one also. The cover was advertised to work with the ipad 2017. I am thinking of cutting a little bit of the rubber out of the cover to make it fit now.

Yeah, I disabled Cloud storage for Gadget. The damn thing's bloody huge, and with all those ALChoons, it sure does mount up.

You can use the Dropbox export to export lovely .wav files, then grab and compress on the PC, instead.
I also had that "won't log in" issue in Gadgetcloud for ages, but unfortunately can't remember how it was resolved..

I went and bought the lexington gadget. I really like the sound it makes. Now to learn how to select the right instruments and setting for that proffesional sound.

I submitted a bug report for the non responsive gadgetcloud. Maybe they wil do something with it. The manuals do not load either and Gadget crashed once when returning from gadgetcloud.

I could not get the velocity working for individual notes on lexington and could not find anything in the manual or google. I posted a question on the support forum. There really is not much posts there at all.
I did figure out how to change the volume for each note later. This involves setting the mixer parameters.

I am working on old and new songs now.

In case you didn't know..

Yeah I already knew how to flip that screen The problem was/is with certain gadgets the velocity(volume) does not work if you modify the sliders.

Does the velocity with notes on lexington work with you? How do you set the individual volume per note?
Posted : Sunday, 16 April 2017, 09:58
Oh, yeah, I see what you mean..
Hmm.. I wonder if they broke that in an update, or whether it's always been like that and I'd just not noticed..
Pretty sure I used it before.

I checked a number of the demo songs and with those I could not find any songs where the velocity did not work. But I was not able to find demo songs using other then the retro chip gadget and non payed ones.

I do think now that the gadget world is not that big at all and that problems therefore seem to be able to excist. Not that many people reporting problems so they can fix it.

Btw, you wrote you were using flstudio for midi music creation? Can you make and export midi files with that using the standard midi instruments library? I might need flstudio then.

The Midi tests were simply that... A test.. In all honesty, none of the tests resulted in a worthwhile midi file, so I wouldn't bother.

If Win10 would run it, I'd still be using my Free copy of Cakewalk Express from a PCPlus coverdisk, around 2002..
But it no longer runs..

Not really sure what's the best tool for Midi, but FLStudio is a crazy expensive way to test midi output!
I'm fairly sure there's a decent free Midi tool out there, somewhere.
It's just a case of finding it.

FWIW : Gadget will output .midi, but only an instrument at a time (or a bulk of x-many midi files, one for each instrument)
Again, I've yet to find a good midi editor, though, to start fiddling with those files.
