Miselu to showcase Polysix application by Korg at Google I/O 2012
San Francisco, CA — June 27, 2012 — Miselu, a Silicon Valley startup designing innovative musical solutions, announced today that Japanese electronic musical instrument giant Korg is bringing a software implementation of their world-renowned synthesizer, the Polysix, to the Miselu platform and will show an early version of it at Google I/O 2012 in San Francisco.
Korg originally released the Polysix, a six voice polyphonic synthesizer, in 1981 to be one of the first synthesizers to reach a wider audience. Even after 30 years, many artists today still use the legendary Polysix. The Polysix software synthesizer for PC and Mac is also extremely popular due to its unique sound while collectors treasure the original hardware.
Miselu CEO Yoshinari Yoshikawa says, "We could not be more thrilled to be working with Korg as they have been building some of the most famous synthesizers in history and are now adding the Polysix to the Miselu platform.”
Hironori Fukuda from Korg says, “The Miselu platform has brought us a great opportunity to develop a synthesizer application with a totally new user experience. The reason we decided to create the Polysix is that the platform has already been perfectly customized for synthesizer use with low latency audio playback based on their great MusicSDK, a wide multi-touch display and a built-in musical keyboard. It was quite easy to port from our Polysix software. The Miselu platform is all set for music creation.”
Miselu and Korg will be showcasing the Polysix at the Developer Sandbox during Google I/O 2012. On June 27th and 28th the team can be met in the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The release date of the application is yet to be determined.
