The latest Korg RK-100 Keytar is equipped with two ribbon controllers, an arpeggiator, and a vocoder, together with “favourite” buttons that allow you to keep your favourite sounds handy for use via a one-touch selection feature. Watch the video after the jump to see the new Korg RK-100S in action.
The new The RK-100S is also now equipped with a new built-in sound engine that was not found on the original KorgRK-100, allowing users to easily perform by just connecting an audio cable.

What had been a somewhat large and heavy body has been made more compact and lightweight thanks to modern components such as a slim keyboard.
