What is MIDI really about ?
MUSIC. It's that simple. And that hard to engineer into a new instrument.
Technology should open up the creative process for more musicians.
If it be-comes an end in itself, it's only a barrier.
Korg technology works the way you do. It brings you closer to your music.
Isn't that the reason for any new instrument ?
