If you like to make your own music and prefer to use synthesizers over analog musical instruments, you will probably be familiar with the name Korg. The company has announced that it has added a pair of the synthesizers to its Kaoss family.
Korg synthesizers were a mainstay for 80’s pop bands and are still widely used for all sorts of musical needs. Korg isn’t just about keyboard synthesizers though, it has a bunch of other gear too. One of the latest products to come from Korg this cool new Wavedrum Mini portable drum synthesizer.
While there are tons of DIY and homebrew analog synthesizers floating around the universe these days, this is the first time in a long while that I’ve seen an analog synth from a major electronic instrument manufacturer in quite some time.
Revealed at this week’s Musikmesse show in Frankfurt, the new KORG monotron is designed to crank out buttery-smooth analog retro sounds in a compact package.
These little USB controllers let you build out a full-fledged recording studio anywhere you go. The Korg nanoSeries of controllers are small enough to throw in a backpack or briefcase, but when connected to your computer let you set up a robust studio on the road.
