Fran Blanche of Frantone posted this fascinating film by Bernard Wilets, which looks at early electronic music, to her YouTube channel, and I just had to share it.

Korgs I’ve Owned Part 6 — Kronos 2

What’s really impressive is that Kronos family has been the top of Korg’s heap since 2011. Again, rightly so. There’s not really much it can’t do. It is quite literally, a complete music workstation and recording studio in a single box.

Many of the sounds were derived from Korg’s T3 and O1/W synths.
