Victoria Wasylak • Supplier Scene • July 12, 2019

Sweetwater’s annual Gearfest event took place on the first weekend of summer, upholding their annual tradition of top tier musical demonstrations, seminar trainings, giveaways and more. KORG USA, Inc. joined the celebration, providing musicians a first-look at the new B2 digital piano series, their popular analog synthesizers including the minilogue xd, and the EK-50, KORG’s best serving educational keyboard. Waldorf Music also attended, bringing the sought-after Kyra; the revamped Valkyrie virtual analog synth.

KORG artist Lynette Williams, who has toured with musical icon Childish Gambino since he first hit the scene, spoke during a live seminar about “Getting the Most from your Keys,” an in-depth look on how keyboardists can achieve their optimal sound. Williams, who tours with the KORG KRONOS, also brought a KingKorg and her a vintage KORG M50, utilizing all three during her demo and performance portion of the seminar.

“Between Lynette’s killer seminar, to the hundreds of attendees who visited our booth, this was one of the best Gearfest’s to date. We were excited to show off the new B2, plus talk up fan favorites such as the minilogue series. Sweetwater has done an amazing job building up this festival and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for next year,” says Nick Kwas, lead product Specialist at KORG USA, Inc.

Producers and performers hosted workshops across five different stages, including some of the industry’s most influential artists. Steve Vai, Dennis Chambers and Eric Johnson were just a few musical icons who joined the monumental weekend.
