I'm interested in their new KR Mini, too. That looks like a fun stocking stuffer.

EDIT: Just heard it. Not so sure I like the drum sounds. I was hoping for "real" KR-type sounds, but nope.
Muhahahahahahahahaha!

I'm glad someone finally got these goddamend things and can now do a review and/or video. So stupid that they keep pushing the ship dates back. Yeah, not going to pay more than $150, sorry. As said before, that's the alure of the beast. I already have an Electribe ES-1. I just thought the Voka keys looked neat. Will wait a little more.

This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

I'm trying!

The only thing I can tell you is that when I DO post them... they will likely come every other day for a NUMBER of days.

Also, thanks Kenneth. :)

Nice intro to the sounds Marc. Looking forward to the rest.

BTW 'Hat' gave me a fit of the giggles for some unknown reason. Probably reminds me of Beavis & Butthead :D

I keep wondering if it won't be 2014 before we get our hands on them in the USA.

I'm optimistic for this 10-4 release on musician's friend. It was 10-11 a couple days ago but it got pushed up. I have faitht his time-- usually you don't skip back months and months to delay AGAIN.

If the delays continue we should send Korg a message with an American boycott. Treating their biggest consumer market like second class citizens should not be tolerated. We can make Korg and we can break Korg. Check yourself before you wreck yourself Korg. :twisted:

Man there's a lot of negativity aimed at Korg for the delays...

Did you really think those release dates were set in stone? It's not going to sound any worse a month or two from now. What's the rush? It's like trying to predict the weather. Plus, I would rather have quality than something rushed through production that's not really ready. (like E.T. the videogame, for example...)
