■ Rhythm Box
Many rhythm boxes and rhythm machines of recent years are digitized and have many multifunctional models, and detailed patterns can be created accordingly, but the operation tends to be more complicated.
I want to enjoy playing casually, and if I can easily play a full-scale rhythm pattern instead of a metronome in the back... The rhythm box KR mini, which has come out from Korg for a long time, responds to such requests. A simple design that uses analog-like controls for looks full of nostalgia and eliminates any complicated functions. Rhythm phrases can be played easily with the intuitive operation of pressing a pad, striking it, and turning a knob. Operation is simple, but there is no compromise on sound. It is possible to play with a total of 60 different rhythm phrases in the background.
Introducing the KR mini, which is easy, simple, and compact, so you can play anywhere, and the rhythm box that many musicians have been waiting for.

「KR mini」はスピーカー付きのリズムマシン。プリセットとして内蔵されている様々なジャンルのリズムを鳴らして、メトロノームの様に普段の練習に活用できます。ただしテンポ表示は無く、完全なメトロノームの代用品というわけではありません。音楽は音を楽しむもの。「KR mini」のサウンドはメトロノームの無機質なリズムとは違います。また、自分でリズムを作ることもできますよ。サッと使えるメトロノームの良さと、リズムマシンの良さが組み合わさった画期的な製品だと思います。小型なので、キーボードの上に置いて使うにも丁度良いですね。
