We don't know what the mystery new products will be, but it's safe to say that by teaming up with Greg Mackie and Peter Watts Korg have an eye set on some exciting items for musicians and producers.

It's possible we'll get a sneak peek of what Korg and M&W have been working on together at NAMM 2019 at the end of the month... whatever it turns out to be, we do know the new products probably won't be released until Q3 2019.

Here's the official press release from Korg:

Tokyo, Japan – December 18th, 2018 – KORG, manufacturer of synthesizers, digital pianos, signal processors, tuners and peripherals, has announced a strategic alliance with noted pro audio product designers, Greg Mackie and Peter Watts. Their company, M&W, has been instrumental in the behind-the-scenes development of products for numerous major manufacturers over the last 15 years.

“We are very excited to be working with Greg and Peter”, noted KORG President Seiki Kato, “I have personally known this team since the mid-90’s, and have always wanted to collaborate on new products that combine KORG’s engineering and manufacturing expertise with Greg and Peter’s innovative design talents.”

According to Greg Mackie, “We are looking forward to helping KORG expand their impressive and well-earned reputation into the pro audio domain. Peter and I have been ‘gestating’ some product concepts that are perfect for KORG, and which we think will be well received in the market. These guys have a powerhouse engineering department and they are a joy to work with.”

KORG VP of Worldwide Marketing, John McCubbery stated that the first KORG products designed by M&W are slated for third-quarter 2019 release.

    Great. Collaboration. Now if Korg would kindly listen to users on Korg User Forums and fix their longest standing bugs and request, that'd be great.
