A MINI KORG ARP 2600?


Update: I'm hearing this version was just a render and never pursued by KORG. Currently they have no plan other than the Full Sized (FS) version. The question of course is how did these renders end up at GC?

This was spotted on the Guitar Center website. Note the right side of the keyboard is flush with the case. The price is the same $3,899.99 and there is no mention of it being mini. My guess is it's just the perspective of the shots, but who knows?! Maybe they used the wrong pics and a Mini will be the reveal at NAMM, Musikmesse, or Superbooth. :) I heard the full size is a limited run. A Mini would make sense for mass market.

You can find the KORG ARP 2600 announcement post here.

Update via victor in the comments: "3 octaves/ That is indeed probably 3/4 or half the size of the other one. Maybe a cheaper option. It also looks like a rendering so it could be a previous sketch of the other one"

Update2: word is the full size 2600 will be limited to 400 units, not 800 as I originally heard/thought. No mention of a limit for the Mini.
