Erik Zobler and George Duke Choose Korg MR Series MR-2000S DSD Recorder

Zobler & Duke — Keyboard great George Duke and long-time engineer Erik Zobler choose the Korg MR-2000S Studio Recorder for printing high-resolution digital masters —

MELVILLE, NY, August 18, 2009 — Grammy® winning engineer Erik Zobler first teamed up with musician George Duke thirty years ago for the latter’s Brazilian Love Affair album. Both men are known for their critical, demanding ears, so Korg was honored when Zobler recently added the MR-2000S DSD 1-bit Studio Recorder to the gear setup at Duke’s Studio. As Zobler notes, “I have always liked the DSD format. Even the early versions of DSD sounded more ‘analog-y,’ if you will. Since I normally work ‘outside the box,’ summing in the analog world, I am always on the lookout for the best device to capture the sound coming off the mixer. I must say that the Korg MR-2000S is the closest sound to the console that I have come across to date.â€? more
