Last week, as a preamble to the opening of the NAMM show 2024, KORG inc. announced the upcoming release of the successor to the microKORG.
This new version of this iconic synth is now equipped with a 2.8 inch color LCD display, and all the design & GUI of the synth is the result of a collaboration between KORG and BLINKSONIC°.
Since KORG hired me in 2022 for this challenge, after weeks of production, reflection and discussions, no less than 40 menu pages and around 300 animated icons have been created, in order to illustrate all the available parameters.
We tried to ensure that the user experience was fun, modern and practical. We also did our best to make the live performance and the edition with this new microKORG as playful and beautiful as possible.
And it is with great honor and pride that I share with you these few images taken from the prototype that is currently sitting in my studio.
A big thought to my colleagues Kyosuke, Masaki and Yuki, for their trust and support throughout the whole production process. It was an unforgettable experience !!
We put our heart into this project, and I hope that this new microKORG will bring joy and creativity to all its future owners.
