Korg has announced a number of new products for Autumn 2014.
Flexibly shifting in style to match the trends of today, the electribe series continues to lead the world’s dance music scene.
Approximately ten years after the Electribe MX first went on sale in 2003, we now introduce a long-awaited new model that’s designed to be simple and easy for the beginner to understand, and even more enjoyable than ever for existing users. The electribe perfectly fulfills two tasks that both demand speed: live performance and music production.
The electribe sampler has been reborn with cutting-edge technology inherited from popular KORG products such as the KingKORG, kaossilator, kaoss pad, and taktile.
The internal memory lets you save 250 patterns, including preset patterns which are perfect for today’s dance music scene. There’s also support for the polyphonic playback that’s indispensable for styles that include complex chord progressions, such as House music.
mini kaoss pad 2S
A powered-up mini kaoss pad 2, the mini kaoss pad 2S (“S” for sampler) is a powerful DJ effect unit that fits in the palm of your hand.
It includes the familiar KORG touchpad, which allows you to intuitively control 100 different effects, and a sampler function that makes it easy to load and trigger a variety of sounds. Whether you are playing or performing, you’ll have more fun than ever with the powerful mini kaoss pad 2S.
Announcing a new compact tuner for the brass band and orchestral performer. The Slimpitch features a high-brightness, high-contrast color LCD for superb visibility. The body is more compact than ever, making the unit small enough to fit in your hand.
A dedicated contact mic is included, and a newly-developed magnet mechanism lets you attach the unit to your music stand without obstructing the sheet music. With enhanced visibility and improved ease-of-use, this tuner sets a new standard that is exemplary of KORG’s attention to detail.
Rimpitch-C expands upon KORG’s innovative Rimpitch tuner by adding chromatic functionality. By attaching the tuner inside the sound hole of your acoustic guitar, you can casually observe the tuning meter at an incredibly convenient viewing angle.
With a broad detection range and a calibration function, this model allows accurate and discrete tuning in a wide variety of performance environments. The Rimpitch-C is the ideal choice for acoustic guitarists who require a more flexible tuning option.
Sing with your guitar! A world-wide first! MIKU STOMP, the new Vocaloid effect unit.
The volca sample is a sample sequencer that lets you edit and sequence up to 100 sample sounds in real time for powerful live performances.
It’s a powerful addition to any existing volca setup, or simply on its own. The new volca lets you recapture the excitement of the first generation of samplers, in which any sound — vocals, spoken words, ambient sound, or glitches — becomes material for your creations!
The Pa3X Le has a huge collection of onboard sounds, and provides a generous 192MB of space for either your own samples, or widely available add-ons. With over 410 built-in Styles (and room for 1,200 in total), you can cover almost any musical style imaginable.
The Pa3X Le’s impressive feature set includes a TC Helicon Vocal Harmonizer, a dual MP3 player & recorder, a powerful Dual Crossfade Sequencer, and much more. Use the video output to display lyrics or score on an external monitor, making it perfect for karaoke or band leading. On stage, the Pa3X Le provides a professional look with a sturdy black aluminium case with wooden side panels.
The CLIPHIT is a new electric drum kit that’s ideal for drum practice at home or for casual playing. Attach the clips with their internal sensor to a magazine, desk, or almost any surface, transforming it into a snare, hi-hat, or cymbal.
You can also attach these clips to practice pads, using them to play drums or any of the programmed EFX sounds that include dog sounds, cat sounds, hand clapping. CLIPHIT will breathe new life into your drum practice, and is a great way to enhance your experience and creativity.
Pricing and availability of these products is to be announced.
