The EMX (blue) focused on Korg’s MMT (multiple modelling technology) synthesis approach, whereas the ESX (red) is the sample specialist. Both units offered a single box solution for Dance music production, with drum and synth features, arpeggiator, a good selection of real-time effects and the all-important ‘Valve Force’ tube gain.
