History of Korg
Korg was founded in 1963 in Tokyo, Japan creating the onomatopoeic Doncamatic rhythm machine. Korg are credited with making a number of innovations in the synth world (including key transpose) however their major breakthrough came with the Korg M1 workstation.
Since then, some of their products have become highly appreciated classics like the Korg MS-20, the Korg Wavestation, the Korg M1.
Korg have now diversified into a wide range of products from synths and keyboard workstations, to tuners and metronomes.
The company has continued its dominance in Workstation keyboards with the Kronos and Krome series. If you’re looking for more of a stage instrument the all tube SV1 stage piano has real character that makes it stand out from the competition.
Korg have also kept their Analogue synth roots alive, creating a mini version of the classic MS-20, combining forces with Arp to create a modern version of the Arp Odyssey. The Volca series offer sweet tones in pocket size packages, and Korg have also created the perfect beginner’s synth with the Minilogue
