Since it was founded in 1963, Korg's goal has been to create new experiences in music and performance. That was what drove the creation of Japan's first disc-based rhythm machine, the Doncamatic, and then led to the development of Japan’s first synthesizer and the world's first needle-type tuner, followed by numerous unique instruments that have brought the enjoyment of musical performance to many people all around the world.
Korg is resolved to continue to create innovative and uncompromising instruments which maintain the high quality that inspires professional artists and creators, and yet are approachable enough for anyone to play. The musical instruments Korg will deliver are reflections of the ideas and values of the many artists and users who continue to love Korg products - now and into the future.

BJOOKS is the boutique publishing company started by author, designer, and musician Kim Bjørn after the success of his first international book, PUSH TURN MOVE from 2017. This October BJOOKS releases PEDAL CRUSH - Stompbox Effects For Creative Music Making, funded on Kickstarter in just 12 minutes.
From the very beginning, Kim teamed up with marketer, producer, and DJ Lars Juhl. The Danish duo with their solid backgrounds in design, publishing, and music creation follow their passion for making beautiful, highly usable, and tangible products in a digital world.
Both Kim and Lars are to be found at music tech events around the world, ranging from NAMM, Superbooth, Synthplex, Moogfest, Synthfest, Loop, and Listen Festival, to modular festivals in Japan, and everything in-between.
Following his passion for design, music, technology, and people, Kim created PATCH & TWEAK in 2018 with Chris Meyer, and this book soon got the label "bible of modular synthesis."
The mission of BJOOKS is to create even more exciting titles about music technology, artists, and makers in the years to come.

More than a brand or a company, we are truly a collection of artists. Each and every one of us make art or music in one way or another. We strive to make products that we would actually use in our everyday musical lives. In order to do this we run an extensive beta testing program in which potential products get put into rigs of our employees and well known artists we have grown close to over the years. They go on tour, get recorded and gigged before they hit the market ensuring a powerful, intuitive feature set and top notch build.
