  • Korg USA's "X Marks the Spot" contest

    Hi all,

    I thought some of you might like to know that Korg USA has just started a contest called "X Marks the Spot," and the winner will get a free Kronos Music Workstation. It's at www.korg.com/xmarksthespot (open to USA residents only).

    This is a little different than contests we've had before. Each Thursday for the next seven weeks, we're going to reveal a riddle that will send you off on a scavenger hunt-like search. If you can solve all the riddles and collect all the clues, you're entered for a chance to win.

    Hope you enjoy it... We had a lot of fun putting it together. Best of luck!

    Thanks,
    -Rich

              Have (all the)fun(as usual)! Regards from Finland.
              I am wanting, I am thinking
              To arise and go forth singing,
              Sing my songs and say my sayings,
              Hymns ancestral harmonizing,
              Lore of kindred lyricking.
              In my mouth the words are melting;
              Utterances overflowing
              To my tongue are hurrying,
              Even against my teeth they burst.

                    We've got the next clue posted at http://www.korg.com/xmarksthespot... I think this one should be no problem for you guys. The next one is a little tougher, and the last one is definitely the hardest.

                    Thanks so much for all the great feedback we've received. This has been a lot of fun for us too. Best of luck!
