Korg microPIANO Demo From Japan

What next? Micro Drum kit?      01/10/10

Korg's masterplan for world domination through miniaturization came a step close recently.

In this official release from Korg Inc (Japan) a tiny sorta grand piano type keyboard complete with elevated sound board thingy was demonstrated.


It looks like as well as piano, organ and other electro-mechanical keyboard sounds, theres some kind of arpegiator or sequencer playback features. 

I'm sure all will become clear quite soon.

What happens after "Micro", when Korg get bored of this fad? "Nano"? Will we have to have our hands surgically altered to use any Korg gear? Enough already of the tiny things!

200lb pianists jumping from concert hall roofs everywhere, frustrated from trying to play mini keyboards built for slender female Asian hands.

This is our future. Remember who called it first.

I love it - Korg seems to have a knack for doing quirky instruments. Even if I couldn't use it myself (tbh. I couldn't properly use a real piano) I'm sure it'll find some cool uses in some people's setups. What I would be interested though, is some kind of macro-keyboards, say about 1.5 size the normal ones, so I wouldn't hit two keys at one so often during a solo! :-)

I wish they'd focus on synths with normal keys.
