Designed to help players better express their individuality and style, Korg unveils special limited edition versions of its popular X50 and microKORG synths. Each new model has a distinct look that offers players a unique stage presence as well as built-in collector’s value.
With aesthetics that are both retro and contemporarily hip, each synth features a bold design: the body of the Limited Edition X50 (X50-CF) is covered in a camouflage finish, and the Limited Edition microKORG (microKORG-BK) features vintage-style, reverse-color keys (the black and white colors are reversed). Both keyboards provide the same functions and features as their regular line counterparts.
The lightweight, 61-key X50 synthesizer delivers high-quality sounds, a user friendly interface and convenient USB computer connectivity in a streamlined package designed for performing and computer-based musicians. It features Korg’s HI (Hyper Integrated) synthesis technology as found in the acclaimed TRITON series. Its modern, stylish body contains integrated handles for easy transport.
The microKORG is a portable, affordable synthesizer offering a variety of tools for performers, producers, computer musicians and beginners alike. It delivers modeling synthesis, vocoding, real-time control, onboard effects and external audio processing, plus Korg’s renowned quality and sound. The microKORG’s 37-mini-key compact chassis also makes it ideal for musicians or DJs working in a limited-space environment.
Both models will be in stores by February 2008 at select KORG dealers. The limited edition versions and the regular line offerings will be available concurrently. The microKORG-BK has an MSRP of $550.00.The X50-CF has an MSRP of $950.00.
