KORG Got Something Cooking

And 4th Sept is when we'll find out.      03/09/12
KORG Got Something Cooking

After Roland's big reveal at the start of September, looks like Korg are up to something too - tomorrow at 2.30pm EST, they will be streaming a "Major Announcement". Checking their Livestream account, its going to be amongst their first live broadcasts, so its gonna be a whole lot of new all around.

What do you think its going to be? PolyTron, Mono/Poly reissue? Or some new guitar tuners...

I hope its finally the MS-20 or full analog instruments instead of the monotribe - testing the water type products.

I'm hoping there's some more ports to Reason's rack extensions in that announcement ..

The GedankenMuse. It reads your thoughts and turns them into music automatically. Oh, too early for that? Then, yah, probably a new line of analogs. Or maybe a new ana/digi like the PolyEvolver, only more poly. Or, they shrunk the Jupiter 80. How about a smaller, cheaper Kronos? They could call it the Poseidon, in keeping with that Greek sea gods thing they still keep going. Or maybe a keyboard that uses a neural network AI that invents its own sounds. Where have I heard that before? :)

What ever it is, it will break little new ground.

Whatever it is, I'm just about to buy a Roland Gaia - should I hold off for the possibility of a poly analog (despite the inevitable key-size?)

probably the YABW, yet another boring workstation.

Who cares! KORGs products are of such poor quality with cheap parts/keys/knobs etc and their support is pathetic. I would never buy another Korg product even if it WAS a new MS 20. Never again

I was hoping they might release a new Radius-type synth using multiple monotron voices, or the Kronos "AL-1" engine.

They appear to be announcing a new rompler workstation and a Microkorg updated to feature dubstep presets.

Where's all your fun stuff, Korg?

Still loving my Kronoses buuut... it would've been nice to see an analog synth a la MS-20.

For those that need great analog, I highly suggest checking out the Mopho X4. Poly chained to a Tetra, it's nearly perfect!!
