Korg Intros ST1K Tune For Analog & Modular Synthesizers

Ahead of Superbooth 2024, being held in Berlin May 16-18, Korg has introduced the ST1K, a tuner designed specifically for use with analog and modular synths.

What they have to say about it:

“Designed with the unique needs of analog and modular synth players in mind, the ST1K is compact, precise, and offers high visibility, ensuring your synth is accurately tuned the way you want every time.

Analog synthesizers can be tricky to tune, with their pitch often fluctuating as the circuit adjusts to temperature changes. You may also want to microtune different oscillators within the one synth. These requirements make reliable tuning essential, whether you’re recording in the studio or performing live.

The ST1K delivers this with its capability for ultra-precise tuning to ±0.1 cent, and features a large CMD LCD display that provides a clear, visually appealing readout of your tuning status, aligning with the aesthetics of modular and analog synths. It also includes a built-in high-sensitivity microphone, expanding its use to a broader range of instruments.?


  • “Optimized circuitry” for stable tuning of analog and modular synths.
  • 3D visual meter.
  • Tuning down to ±0.1 cents.
  • Three meter display modes, in addition to note name display.
  • Compact, flat design that is easy to carry anywhere.

Details on pricing and availability for the Korg ST1K tuner are still to come at the Korg website.
