The origins of KORG synthesizers are reborn in software: the miniKORG 700S. In the early 1970s, many compact monophonic synthesizers entered the market. However, most of them were used mainly by famous musicians who could afford rare instruments, or as research devices in the academic world.
KORG wanted to give the average musician the opportunity to experience this new type of musical instrument. After much trial and error, the company’s first production synthesizer was announced in 1973: the miniKORG 700. The simple appearance, which contradicted its ability to reproduce a variety of sounds beyond imagination, fascinated many musicians who loved its unique and rich sound.
The following year, the miniKORG 700S was announced, an improved version with an additional VCO, and has now been recreated as a software tool. The MiniKORG 700S is an exact replica of the original analog equipment with powerful new features only available in software. Now the unique sounds and capabilities of this historic KORG synthesizer can be enjoyed on your computer.
