  1. I lost consciousness when I saw that glowing R-hole.

    Seriously, though. I expect this will make our analog brethren and sistren happy.

      1. It’s pretty clear that Korg didn’t design this for people that would dismiss a keyboard without listening to it.

        Having played it though, the King Korg seems like a great keyboard for synth freaks, because it does the full range of old-school ‘synth freak’ sounds, from subtractive synth stuff to Mellotron.

  2. This looks pretty sweet, but I definitely had a chuckle at the “majestic champagne finish” line. Brings me back to the old Numark decks, and I’m not sure that’s a connection Korg wants to make :p. Did Korg use ‘good’ valves for the glowing hole of ‘R’ this time around, or will we be swapping them as with the electribes?
    Looks like a nice board all around though, glad to see more CV connectivity!
