Tatsuya ‘Tats’ Takahashi – who made a name for himself working on some of Korg‘s most interesting recent products – is now working to launch a new subsidiary, Korg Germany.
In an earlier role as Chief Engineer of Analog Synthesizers at Korg, Takahashi helped create a wide range of popular synths and electronic music gear, including the Monotrons, Volcas, Korg’s ARP and MS-20 reissues, the Minilogue and more. In the last few years, he’s worked on a variety of projects, including installations and an effects unit for the Red Bull Music Academy.
Takahashi is the CEO of the new Berlin-based branch of Korg, and is building a team to create new products.
Korg Germany has also announced its COO, Maximilian Rest. Rest is the founder of Berlin-based E-RM, maker of the Multiclock sync device. Rest and Takahashi will be running what’s described as an ‘engineering playground for musical instruments and accessories’.
Korg Germany is now hiring, looking for electrical, mechanical and software engineers.
