that's a pretty big schedule slip.
I suppose they must be wanting to focus on the holidays then get it out in time for all the industry shows next year.
If you are going to release a product in November it is almost too late to fully take advantage of the holiday spending glut.

Well, it's most likely going to be super awesome. So, I don't mind waiting. Also, I think it might not be a "mini". They haven't attached that suffix to the name once, and I feel like they would if that is what it was.

Just bumping this up to differentiate it from the Behringer thread...


I'm thinking this will be the star of Namm.

With the maintenance issues of the original and practical additions on this it's looking to be a pretty damn nice alternative. :)

and apparently your choice of white, black and gold or black and orange.
This is already turning into a wallet flattening year, and it's just the 2nd week.

For all of us wondering if it has mini keys? They just seem to be a bit shorter. I wouldn't say they are minikeys.

Yeah, that photo is kind of baffling to me because it conflicts with what is apparently the only Korg ARP Odyssey out in the wild - http://instagram.com/p/xAJojhHVmV/?modal=true

Maybe it's the camera angle or?

Could be a computer render in the namm pic or weird angle...our maybe they eliminated that "buck tooth" over hang the original keys had. They look like they are normal width

Aren't the MS-20 mini's like 3/4 size?

I was expecting they'd just recycle that keyboard, would make sense.

85%, actually. The Microkorg is 75% size, I believe.

They are not "mini" keys like kids keyboards, they are just slightly smaller than fullsize keys. We don't have a term for this - macro keys? Semifull-size? Lees-than-full-but-more-than-mini-size?

Maybe they went with an odd sized key to deliberately slow down any Emerson style solos.
Kind of a qwerty layout for musical keyboards.

It would make more sense to have, in brute fashion:

Keys
mini keys
micro keys

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