Recife - new MPC style drum machine. Though it looks cool and has handy sample controls like length, start (good for chopping breaks), speed and pitch, I have not found a way to add my own samples there. Also one effect seems to be too limited in 2017... (there could be more on the mixing bus but I would expect having effects on individual pads - several types of distortions, delays etc).

Other improvements of a new update include Audioshare support, Duplicate scene in arranger, 

Korg Gadget for MacOS

Korg Gadget for MacOS is available from Korg Shop (right now it says: Currently, the KORG Shop is experiencing heavy access. Please wait for a while until the sale of KORG Gadget for Mac resumes. Thank you for your patience.)

With Regular Price: $299 and Introductory Special Price: $199 I need to say it is crazy expensive for what it does. For $199 you can get LogicPro for MacOS which way more powerful DAW and has much more advanced synths and effects on board. Comparing to sale price of $19 (plus IAPs of course) for iOS - $199 (and $299 as a regular price) feels way overpriced.
