Another one! Like DJ Khaled, KORG has wowed us again with yet another fabulous release. We check out the new KORG MW 0804 and 1204 mixers.

In an unexpected but welcome turn of events, the synth manufacturer KORG is introducing a new series of mixers designed specifically for musicians and content creators.

At first glance, the new MW series mixers remind one of the Zero 4 and Zero 8 mixers released back in 2007. Back then, the Zero series mixers provided a DAW control, a firewire interface, and recording capabilities.

While the new MW series is similar, it takes a far more straightforward approach to the design and layout. Both the MW 0804 and 1204 provide onboard recording, but they aren’t audio interfaces, making them distinctly analogue compared to most current creator gadgets.

However, one exciting feature is that there are four bankable pads for triggering and looping samples during your stream, podcast, or music performance. The MW mixers will likely fall under the Soundlink series, a unique Greg Mackie and Peter Watts collaboration.

While the smaller 0804 has two mono XLR combo input channels, it also provides 3 stereo TRS input channels. Apart from the effects return track, there are two stereo subgroups. This makes for conveniently flexible routing options, especially for a mixer this size.

To keep it compact, the 0804 uses knobs instead of channel faders, while the larger 1204 is equipped with this feature. Also, both consoles have a range of onboard processing effects and a spectrum analyzer.

Although they have an analogue feel, these MW seem to be geared towards electronic musicians and digital content creators. What’s more, further features may be revealed in future firmware updates.

    I loved the Zero8 for livesets. The perfect complete mixer/controller/Interface with parametric mid-sweep on stereo tracks. I sably had to sell it discontinued FireWire support. never found a suitable replacement.
