Aw, how… uh… Korg!
Yes, in case they hadn’t given us enough reason for adoration lately, the folks at Korg are now giving away cute little USB stick versions of the microKORG if you purchase a microKORG or microKORG XL+. And if that’s not quite your budget, they also are doing those lovely vintage tees, now in a buy-five, skip-laundry-this-week value pack.
Of course, we’ve seen something like this before, and it appears this is from the same designer:
808, SP1200, MPC, NS-10 Reborn in Miniature as Beautifully-Detailed, Tiny USB Drives [Gallery]
But it’s nice to see Korg added to that collection.
Now you just have to make a to-scale, realistic action figure depiction of yourself, and you can freak out your friends. We want pics. I just want to see a mini MS-20 mini, myself.
For some more KORG fun, Synthtopia today points to a nice video of the Korg Rhythm 55 (KR-55).
I had the fortune to play one of these recently – one was hanging out in the basement of a venue in Wedding, Berlin I was playing in January. They’re not the most versatile drum machines by any stretch, but great fun, and probably a good used buy as they’re less known.
