Korg is recognised as one of the most innovative manufacturers of electronic musical instruments and accessories in the world. With its headquarters based in Tokyo, Japan, Korg maintains a network of distributors operating in countries around the world.
From producing the first synthesiser in Japan, to defining the Music Workstation category, to inventing the world’s first handheld electronic tuner and more, Korg has been at the forefront of technology, and strives to bring to market products that are not only cutting edge, but also extremely user-friendly, inspirational, and of the highest quality.
During the 1960s and 1970s, the organ was a dominant product in the keyboard market, so in 1967 when Katoh was approached by Fumio Mieda, an engineer who wanted to develop keyboard products, he provided the backing for Mieda to try his hand at developing a new type of organ. In 1968, Mieda created the Korg “Prototype I,” which was an organ with programmable voice capabilities similar to a synthesiser.
In 2000, Korg introduced the MS2000 Analogue Modelling Synthesiser, as well as a rack version dubbed the MS2000R. Featuring the latest DSP-powered analogue modelling system, these products pay homage to the meaty analogue sounds of the original Korg MS series synthesisers. A mini-key version based on the same sound engine appeared in 2003. Dubbed the microKORG, this fun performer rapidly became one of the bestselling synthesisers in the world, and stayed at the top for years.
Exhaustive research and development led to the MMT (Multi Modelling Technology) synth engine, giving rise to the knob-laden RADIAS in 2006; followed by the streamlined R3 in 2007, and the ultra-portable microKORG XL in 2009. In 2010, Korg celebrated its analogue heritage with the release of monotron – the pocket sized, ribbon controlled analogue synth featuring a VCO, LFO and the classic analogue filter found in the legendary MS-10 and MS-20.
