Organizers have announced Ambicon 2013 – an ambient music conference to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Hearts Of Space radio program.

In 2013, Korg celebrates its 50th anniversary.
Founded by Tsutomu Katoh, Korg released their first product in 1963, the Disc Rotary Electric Auto Rhythm machine Doncamatic DA-20. In 1973, Korg introduced their first synth, the MiniKorg.
Since then, Korg has had an impressive run. They’ve released a steady stream of electronic music gear, including classics like the MS-20, the PolySix, the WaveStation and the VC-10 Vocoder. And they have had their share of modern hits, with the Electribe line, Kaoss pads, the microKorg, the Radias and others.
What do you think Korg’s best synth or piece of electronic music gear has been from their first 50 years?
