Korg’s Gadget music production app is coming to Nintendo Switch – Engadget

Thursday, November 02, 2017

Exporting sounds a bit tricky though. Rather than saving a beat to an SD card, as of now the plan is for users to run an aux cable from the Switch’s headphone jack into a 3.5mm input on a PC and record using something like Audacity.
