The 2008 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim just wrapped up. I was happy to find that NAMM created a YouTube channel for those of us who didn’t get the opportunity to attend.

Here is a video highlighting some KORG products. They’ve released a cool little product called the Kaosillator.

Here is the blurb from the official product page:

"The KAOSSILATOR is a new pocket sized instrument that packs Korg’s world renowned synth sound along with innovative performance features into an ultra-compact unit. Anyone can instantly play musical phrases by simply tapping or sliding their finger across the KAOSSILATOR’s touch pad – no previous skills required! The KAOSSILATOR is a portable, travel friendly device that runs on batteries, so you can have fun creating music anywhere your life takes you, with seemingly endless possibilities. Whether you’re an established “tweaker”, an aspiring electronic artist or somewhere in between, KAOSSILATOR is one musical sketch pad that you should not be without!"

Info and Video on the Korg M3 Music Workstation/Sampler

M3

Korg announced a new keyboard, the Korg M3 Music Workstation/Sampler. 

The Korg blurb on this says:

"The M3 features a number of innovations distilled from the flagship OASYS including the new EDS (Enhanced Definition Synthesis) sound generator derived from the HD-1 engine design, the advanced second-generation KARMA functionality, and the multi-purpose control surface. Adding innovations such as the new concept of "virtualized hardware" that allows an even closer integration with DAW systems, Drum Tracks which provide a instant groove to play along with, and the new "Korg Komponent System" concept that facilitates more flexible system construction, the M3 music workstation/sampler opens a new and exciting page in music making, and is the workstation that rightfully deserves to wear the "M" that started it all."

M3_video Stephen Kay, the inventor of the Karma technology,  has put together a great video which highlights new features.
