So, what is it with Korg then?
I’ve been wondering this for a few days. What is going on with Korg? First there’s the Kaoss Pad series. Nice devices, lots of fun. Then a really little one, the mini KP, that’s fair enough, and I expect it will have done well enough as they then made the Kaossilator, which is a far stranger device entirely. I bought one, and I really like it, but I’m not sure I entirely understand the rationale behind it.
Now, we have the Korg DS-10 on the way. I think it is a great idea, and I will definitely buy one, or more likely two, but I don’t get it even more than the Kaossilator. What is the reasoning behind these developments, and more importantly where will it go next?
How about a Korg music based handheld? Something like a clamshell with a screen on one side a keyboard on the other? Maybe that’s too much to ask as yet, but who knows what they’ll come up with next?
