DSD DAW From Korg - Dazzling Demo

November 6, 2010

Just saw an amazing demo in a hotel suite near the AES convention: A laptop (PC) running a DSD DAW natively, via a USB 2.0 interface, playing back through a 5.1 surround setup.

As you'll read in the official press release I'm reprinting in the NEWS section of our website, this is not a final version by any means, nor is the (currently) 8-channel interface necessarily going to be looking like it does in my photo

but the GUI is very elegant and functional and looks ready for prime time:

We saw and heard seamlessly integrated eq and effects pop-ups working perfectly (like the grand piano spinning around the 5.1 speaker array - very funny just after breakfast...), while listening to stunningly realistic jazz tracks recorded in Japan just a few days ago.

The above are just quickie pix I took in the hotel suite - look for more details and pictures from Korg in the future and jump to our NEWS section for the official press release.

I would not say it will be unmatched. There are already DSD and DXD DAWs with high-end proprietary and third party converters. Pyramix was out long ago. Now, I AM excited about this. This will bring DSD closer to the MI market.

If it sounds like my Korg MR 1000 2 channel DSD/PCM recorder but with DAW flexibility, it will be a huge boon to the world of recorded music. That device is by far the best sounding digital device I've ever encountered.

Oh, has anyone heard anything more about this? Is anyone beta-testing? Love our MR-1000s, but could really use this!
