The instances of groundbreaking innovation in Korg's history are too many to list. They have literally changed the industry of electronic musical equipment dozens of times, and right alongside these innovations, they have been a catalyst for changing the face of music itself. It is hard to overstate the impact that Korg products have made since the company's inception in 1962. From the invention of attributes that would become standard features of every electronic keyboard such as key transposition and combining synthesized sounds with effects, to groundbreaking designs such as the MS-20, the M1, the Triton, and the Kronos, Korg has been a critical part of the advancement of electronically generated sound. In addition to synthesizers, Korg's current focus now includes guitar and vocal effects, tuners, digital pianos, amplification, recording equipment, hand percussion, and software instruments.
