An Interview with KORG's Fumio Mieda & Hiroaki Nishijima

"my talk (german) with #Korg #Synthesizer-gurus Fumio Mieda & Hiroaki Nishijima … @matrixsynth"

Googlish translation here.

Can you briefly tell how you came to Korg?

Fumio Mieda:
At first I had to construct no interest in synthesizers, but desire a new organ and therefore met Mr Kato, that was so 1968/1969. He listened to my ideas and gave me the OK to build a prototype for him. Because there should be two manuals and I had thought different functions, it took around one and a half years until I had finished the organ. So, at least I thought it would be an organ, but the people I showed it said: 'This is no organ, which is a synthesizer!'.
