                     TOP-SELLER iELECTRIBE APP FOR iPAD®

                        — $9.99 USD price extends to July 31, 2010 —

MELVILLE, NY, June 30, 2010 — Korg announces that it has extended the special $9.99
introductory price for its iElectribe virtual analog beatbox iPad® app, available from Apple’s App
Store (inside the iTunes store). The $9.99 USD price is now in place until July 31, 2010, after
which the regular price of $19.99 USD will take effect.

Since its debut in April, Korg's iELECTRIBE has been a huge hit with users, resulting in a
series of five-star reviews and a firm spot in the top-ten music apps, having hit #1 multiple
times. In May, Korg responded to user feedback, updating the iELECTRIBE app with Version
1.1.0, adding the ability to export audio, improved knob response and some sonic

Since its debut in 1999, the aggressive sound, unique functionality and intuitive beat-building
style of Korg’s ELECTRIBE-R rhythm synthesizer became a mainstay for creative artists
worldwide. Korg ELECTRIBE products have been popular due in part to their interactive, easy-
to-use front panel controls. Today, this instrument has been reborn as iELECTRIBE for iPad.
Taking full advantage of the iPad's intuitive 9.7-inch multi-touch display, iELECTRIBE allows
users to interact with an incredible sound engine to expand their musical and creative
horizons. Just as on the original ELECTRIBE, users simply choose one of the eight parts (or
sounds) and touch the 16-step sequencer to quickly build patterns and grooves.

The iELECTRIBE faithfully recreates the historic ELECTRIBE-R’s entire sound engine –
including analog synthesis modeling and PCM synthesis, along with virtual Valve Force tube
modeling. The sequencer can record instrument parts as well as advanced Motion Sequencing
– the recording of knob movements as part of a pattern.

The Master effect processor provides eight enhanced effect types. The iELECTRIBE comes
preprogrammed with 64 new preset patterns that allow the user to instantly create music in a
wide variety of dance and electronic music styles; the user can also create up to 64 patterns of
their own.

                                                                              Word count: 315 words
