Korg return with the Keytar!
First appearing from Korg in 1984, the Keytar freed keyboard players from behind the keyboard stand and created many memorable and lively performances.

The new RK-100S has a built-in analog modeling sound generator and a more compact body than the original RK-100, it features the same sized 37-note keyboard as that of the MS20-mini.

The body is lightweight and shaped from wood, crafted to the ideal shape for performance.

Other new features include two ribbon controllers, an arpeggiator, a vocoder, and one-touch selection using the favourites button.

The monoaural mini-input jack also works with a mic input.

The RK-100S Keytar is available in red, black and white.

Steve from Korg gives us a look at the RK-100s at Namm 2014:
