I've seen these pix, too. I have no idea if they're real or not or if they're what Korg has promised to announce later this week. I'm guessing we'll find out one way or another in less than 48 hours.

Awesome! Lets hope it's true. Looks very 303 esque :)

Shaping up to be an interesting year

This is totally subjective but DAMN those look sexy.

From the pics, looks like the same small plastic knobbage from the 'trons. If this is the new incarnation of the electribe series, then Korg has basically sealed the deal. There's a lot of control packed into that box...things might get rough for the Rocket...

Also, that would be "Polytribe" I think.

Foaming at the mouth...

It really is cool to see a major manufacturer staying true to its roots and its smaller-niche artists. What's the odds that the Korg35 filter chip will be found in this one too?

EDIT: If these are real, my money says the black one is a Drum Machine, the Middle one is a 303 inspired bassline/seq synth (hence the 303 knobs), and the bottom one is the Poly pictured above. What's the name, though? Can't make it out--"voice/voica keys"?

This is illuminating as well. Most pics I've seen so far. This is happening. Volca Bass, Volca Beats, Volca Keys.

Three VCOs on that bass synth.

Who expected a new MicroPreset? Those things sound pretty good, used one for a while and using the "traveller" with the synth presets you can get some really tasty filter action.

The way the things are obviously styled after the 808 and 303 is funny since it's a Korg :lol:

Korg knows as well as anyone that Roland isn't going to pursue an opportunity when it presents itself, so they did it themselves.

The "stutter" effect seems to be a big deal on the Beats box. One of the knobs looks like it says "PCM Speed" but I would expect it to be analogue so maybe that's something else.

I am scratching my head here.

Anyone going to MESSE?
