Haha Snow camo!

I want to see it in that 20th century, digital-army, Digital-Urban camo!

It would go great with my Digital-Camo mousepad and Front-Row remote :shock:

But seriously.
In all seriousness.
What are Korg thinking?
They totally abandoned the "synthesizer" market and are focusing on the color-schemes instead of the insides..
What the h**l is that!?

Just saw this come over.

http://www.mellotron.com/digital-mellotron.html

Looks interesting. Will cost a lot though, when I think a dedicated rompler like that should be less than a $1000. There's probably tons of empty space inside there. It would be cool if they made a desktop Mellotron with the upper and lower LCD's and such on it with basic outputs for $500. I'd buy that.

Korg has launched some pretty innovative and surprising products over the past few years. Kaossilator, Microsampler, DS-10 come to mind. Those may not be your cup of tea but shouldn't Korg at least get credit for thinking outside the box? Yes, they changed color schemes on a few of their products. So what? ;) To the best of my knowledge they still make very decent synthesizers like Radias, Oasys and the Microkorgs, so I wouldn't agree that they've abandoned the market at all.

i <3 korg, but they deserve being teased for c**p like that.

also EHX has put out so many awesome new pedals in the past year, wondering if they'll be there w/ something... like a remake of the stereo polychorus, since they haven't done that one yet.

hey to each their own. I was listening more for the potential of what the new features could do rather than the sounds they were playing themselves

Sounds very digital from the demo, still interesting.

Noticed in the specs that under "Environmental requirements", that other than normal common sense cautions, it suggests the it's "Maximum altitude: 10,000 feet". Huh? Does that mean you can't take it say, to the Space station? Or fly to 11,000 feet?

Of course it is - I was hoping that it would sound more like an analogue synth.

how about just using one of the analogue synths you have if you want analog sounds?

these features are clearly not for analogue emulation.
