What makes KORG keyboard piano so unique is the fact that it has none of the cheap metallic sound.
For high knowledgeable musicians, i.e. composers and arrangers, the brand of the keyboard they use is vital. How can one produce a good composition, improvisation and music arrangement if the sound coming out of the keyboard is akin to the plaintive “meow' of a cat with its tail stepped on? That's just one of the reasons why musicians choose to play on KORG keyboards.
How KORG piano sounds like?
The sound produced on a KORG is rounded, warm and lush. The string section is delicate yet precise. The flutes sound light and sweet.
The KORG electric piano has a very smooth sound with a good timbre. However older models do not possess a great KORG piano sound. The basses and brass are deep and resonant including the chorus. The sound of a KORG is brilliant and crisp.
KORG has retired a great number of products since its inception in 1963 by Tadashi Osama and Tsutomu Kato. Osanai was a university graduate student who played the accordion at Kato's club.
Osanai found the rhythm machine he used inadequate so he enjoined Kato to invest on a rhythm machine that he will design and produce. The product was called DA-20 or Donca machine. Released on 1963, the initial product was successful.
Eventually the duo established KORG (K for Kato, O for Osana and RG from oRGan) and proceeded to produce KORG electronic keyboard and synthesizers.
