KORG Engineers and members of the Executive Leadership team will present the debut of the new KORG KRONOS and the unveiling of the legendary ARP ODYSSEY.

Participants will be treated to exclusive solo performances on the new KORG KRONOS from Keyboardist Jordan Rudess of the Grammy nominated progressive metal band Dream Theater, as well Jonah Nilsson, Lead Vocalist and Keyboardist of the viral pop-cover sensation Dirty Loops. These amazing artists will provide listeners with a glimpse into the range of sounds the KRONOS can bring to any keyboardist.

The ARP ODYSSEY debut will be highlighted by a presentation from the co-founder of ARP Instruments, David Friend, a technology entrepreneur who has been the Chief Advisor to KORG on the ARP ODYSSEY. The ARP ODYSSEY will then be played publicly for the first time by respected multi-instrumentalist and producer Cory Henry.

Here in Germany it says that this video isn't available in my country. So, if this happens to you too, get the Firefox add-on ProxTube ;) !

I want to wait and see what Behringer come up with! ;)
It'll be interesting, that's for sure.
Until then, GForce's Oddity2 is a feckin' mindblowing synth :thumbup:

A little less than 30 minutes.  Sounds like they will start by showcasing the Kronos...  Just wanted to give y'all a heads up!

They are on a 10 minute standby.  Only 200 people watching on youtube.  Quite shocking.

[edit] ok more people tuning in now...

LOL, thanks for the hint. I still had the countdown (for the nth time). After reloading it works now.

"One more song to play"

Blimey, the sigh from the audience nearly blew all the workstations over.

I just want to go there and help them with their grounding issue!

And their clipping.  

And their camera angles.

Lol

I enjoy reading your comments so much more than watching it! The youtube comments were already brutal before it started!

I'm lying in my comfy Ikea bed watching this on my laptop.

And my arse has still come out in sympathy sores for the poor bastards sitting there in that room listening to this.

I would have preferred micro keys (found on the MicroKey controllers and MicroKorg) and rather than the mini keys found on the MS-20 mini.  They just look weird and lanky and feel funny to play for me.  But maybe that's just me?
