Near a railway line in Japan, Keio Laboratories Inc. developed and introduced a mechanical rhythm machine in 1963. The company changed its name, combining the words, “Keio” and “Organ” to form Korg. Since then, Korg has become synonymous with leading-edge technology and musician-friendly products and prices. A pioneering force in the pro-audio and electronic musical instrument industry, Korg’s long and distinguished list of musical innovations stretches from the Electribe and Kaoss series of production tools to its line of Nano controllers.
DJs worldwide have been relying on Korg to provide cutting edge equipment for over fifty years. Kaoss Pad Series products—from the flagship Kaoss Pad KP3 and groundbreaking Kaoss Pad Quad to the Mini Koass Pad 2—have become staples in countless DJ rigs. Electribe’s family of music production workstations is indispensible to artists in the dance and electronic genres, while Korg’s Nano controllers are specified to meet the needs and demands of the computer-based musician.
