Company History

Founded in 1962 in Japan by Tsutomu Kato and Tadashi Osanai, Korg was originally known as Keio Electronic Laboratories (?) Because their seat is now near the Keio train line Tokyo and Keio can be formed by combining the first letters of Kato and Osanai. Before founding the company, Kato published a nightclub. Osanai, graduate University of Tokyo and noted accordionist, regularly performed at Kato club beat accompanied by a companion Wurlitzer machine. Dissatisfied drum machine, Osanai Kato persuade finance their efforts to build a better one.

The first product of society, published in 1963, was a device called rhythmic electro-mechanical rotary disk electrical machine automatic rhythm Donca matic DA-20. Encouraged by the success of the DA-20, Keio released a machine in solid pace, Donca matic-20 in 1966.

In 1967, Fumio Kato Mieda approached, an engineer who wanted to build keyboards. Impressed by the enthusiasm Fear, Kato asked him to build a prototype and fear has returned 18 months later with a programmable organ. Keio sold the organ under the name Korg, because of the combination Keio body.

Keio products have succeeded in the organs during the 1960s and early 1970s, but worried competition from other manufacturers organ, Kato decided to use technology to build an organ keyboard synthesizer for the niche there. Keio's first synthesizer MiniKorg, then was released in 1973.

After the success of the Mini-Korg, Keio released a number synthesizers budget conscious throughout the 1970 and 1980 under the name Korg.

Korg later ventured into music recording and marketing Electric guitar effects, with some success.

Yamaha Corporation has always been a major partner of Korg, providing mechanical parts and circuits. In 1987, shortly before the release of M1 Music Workstation, Yamaha acquired a controlling interest in Korg's action. The acquisition of was amicable, with Kato development terms, and both companies continued to independently develop their product lines and market competition. After the next 5 successful years, Kato had enough money to buy most from Yamaha in 1993.
