"The Korg MINIPOPS 7 is a very rare rhythmbox with fantastic analog sound! It came out in 1973. Jean-Michel Jarre has used the KORG MINIPOPS on his legendary album „OXYGENE“ and "EQUINOXE". You can mix together the desired rhythms by pressing down 2 or more keys simultaneously. The combinations sound interesting - a source for interesting, weird beats and inspiration, which are not available from other sources.

Some sounds are unique, as the classic Jarre - like 'Quijada' sound is not present on any other Korg Mini Pops device which makes the model 7 highly collectable. (Don't buy the other models looking for these Jarre sounds - they don't have them.)

220 V version from Germany. Rare rhythm machine from the seventies.

The Mini Pops 7 is properly working. It is in great condition with normal traces of use (see the original pictures). It comes as seen on the pictures.

In the videolink above I demonstrate the unit I am selling here."
