New Korg Hardware Analog Coming to Musikmesse?

Update: pics posted here
via Ryan:
"So I just got an iPad and one of the first apps I bought was the korg ims20 app. This morning I started it up and there was a teaser message from Korg. I took a pic, it's attached."

I just checked iElectribe and it has the teaser screen as well. I wonder if this is the first product teaser ever announced in the synth world exclusively on the iPad.

KORG iMS-20 - KORG INC.
KORG iELECTRIBE - KORG INC.
iPads on eBay


Update:

New Korg MONOTRIBE! "Multi-track rhythm and drum machine" Real Analog? or April Fools?

YouTube Uploaded by VJFranzK on Apr 1, 2011

"Mystery! There's a new teaser screen when you start up KORG iElectribe or iMS20 - "Ready to tweak some real analog hardware?" yes, always! "Check out KORG.com and KORG.co.jp on April 6!" Meanwhile, the name "MONOTRIBE" has been trademarked by KORG in NY for a "multi-track rhythm and drum machine"! It seems likely that these are related - that this is the machine that we see in the photo! The controls resemble those on the recent Monotron and Kaossilator pro. Based on all of this, I would guess (or hope!) that this is an Electribe style drum machine, with a sequencer, MIDI and 1 or more mono analog voices to control! More info TBA. We've been waiting for a completely new Electribe for YEARS! let's hope."

  1. I heard it was going to be an analog electribe called the 'monotribe'.

  2. As much as I love Moog, Korg truly has provided me with A LOT of very useful kit over the last ten years.
