Korg USA is pleased to announce its two latest products, which are being unveiled at Winter NAMM 2013. Both creations from the line-up have been equipped to deliver top-notch music creation solutions for both professionals and novices. These can be viewed at Booth 6440.
Focused on live performance, the King Korg analog modeling synth features Korg’s new XMT (Xpanded Modeling Technology) engine, with many types of oscillators and filters that can accurately model sought-after vintage analog synths. With its controls laid out in easily identifiable sections, King Korg delivers the unique characteristics of a dedicated synthesizer, while remaining approachable to players who are new to synthesizers. It not only shines on stage with high quality sound, but also with a champagne gold finish befitting its royal name. For full press release, click HERE.
Korg’s MS-20 monophonic synthesizer, first introduced in 1978, is still coveted to this day for its thick, robust sound, powerful, iconic analog filter, and versatile patching options. It has now been reborn in hardware, as the new MS-20 mini. The same engineers who developed the original MS-20 have perfectly reproduced it in a body that’s been shrunk to 86% of the original size, yet retains the distinctive look of the original.
For 50 years, Korg has created innovative electronic music products, from simple-to-use tuners to the most advanced keyboard instruments on the planet. Designed by musicians for musicians, Korg products are intuitive and easy to use. Our instruments are used thousands of times a day, on stage and in the studio, by musicians and consumers around the globe.
