0

At long last, it’s arrived. In some respects it feels like it’s been forever that I’ve been waiting, having pre-ordered my electribe back in September when it was first announced.  On the other hand, in some ways it’s been almost ten years for this moment, when Korg would finally release a successor to the EMX.  Not that I didn’t like …
