"It's time for Korg themselves to step up..."
Without being rude, if you look at the pace KORg usually applies to their products, KORG is a few generations of KAOSS products before this kind of functionality arrives. They would have to meet this and surpass it
to shine OR slap some of this goodness in a hardware unit. Honestly, right at the moment, I don't know what BEATS THIS, but the same thing in hardware
would be attractive.
I dunno, maybe it'd have to have it's own SOUNDS and be able to be controlled/played from an external MIDI controller.
I think that would be a trump card and people have been requesting that from KORG for years now
