Korg: Tatsuya Takahashi stopper som fuldtids synth designer

Indlæg Skrevet: 16. feb 2017, 17:36

Kopieret fra hans facebook opslag:

"THANK YOU!!!
It's been a good ten years at Korg!

A few years after starting at the office, Tada and I, over a cigarette break, started shooting ideas around for a battery powered pocket analog synth. The monotron was the humble beginnings of what became a mission to make synthesizers fun, exciting and accessible again. To give synthesizers back to the people. To make synthesizers less snobby. To open up creative opportunities. To get people interested in electronic sound and see some kind of light in creating their own sound using technology amidst a world that is inundated with it.

monotrons, monotribe, volcas, minilogue, monologue, some reissues, SQ-1, littleBits synth kit - we put out a lot of gear.

After a blur of 21 products we released over seven years, I look at the world of synthesizers and it's a pretty cool place. I see kids getting their first taste of synths with the volcas. I meet people who have their dormant synth passion rekindled by the minilogue. And it's not just Korg. The whole industry has set out to achieve this common goal.

The name volca comes from the German word Volk: "the people" or "crowd". Like Volkswagen "the people's car", the volcas are "the people's synth". I have fond memories of meeting Mike Banks and being told how the volcas reached poverty-stricken youths in Detroit. That manufacturers have to take responsibility for the social implications of putting out gear.

On the 17th of February I will be leaving my full time position at Korg and will sidestep to advisor. I will also be moving out of Tokyo to Cologne to explore new areas where sound and technology can have positive social implications. I won't be going to any of the competition, but rather will be shifting direction of my main line of work while at the same time guiding the now super team at Korg venture into the future.

I am hugely indebted to everyone in engineering (my super duper team will keep designing the best of the best), production (love you all in Vietnam we did this together!), sales (job well done), marketing (fun times making those movies), distribution / dealers (essential work the world over), media (you guys got the word out) and most of all the musicians out there who are creating music with our synths - without you our work is meaningless.

THANK YOU

it's been a ton of fun. more to come.
Tats"

Og Peter Kirn fra Create Digital Music/CDM har skrevet om hvad Tatsuyas og Korgs indsats indtil nu har betydet:

Nok optaget inden han annoncerede sit stop. Er man interesseret i eksempelvis det han snakker om omkring 10 minutter, med hvordan en waveform skabes, så kan man se denne tråd:

Godt interview. F.eks. er det interessant at han nævner hvordan en simpel savtak waveform lyder forskelligt (selv uden filter på), alene ud fra hvordan man har designet kredsløbet. Og jeg har skam lagt mærke til det. Macbeth M5 lyder ret anderledes end min Korg MS-20 (mere "svulstig") og Oberheim SEM lyder mere stramt. Korg Arp Odyssey er anderledes igen. Korg MS-20's savtak minder til gengæld ret meget om Roland SH-02 hvis man ikke bruger filteret.

Så en savtak er ikke bare en savtak. Der er nuancer. :)

Så er mit føromtalte link nok interessant for dig. :)
