X Marks The Spot Contest: Clue 4
Once there was a workstation, produced (of course) by Korg.
It sparked a revolution in the studio and on tour.
Sequencing and pro effects enhanced the sampled sounds.
It was the first of many, and the best by leaps and bounds.
Now it's 24 years old, with 4MB of ROM.
