The EP-133 KO II is more than a toy but less than a professional tool — and its creators hope it might get even more people making music.
Counterpoint Research reports that the 27-month dip might be at an end, after October saw the first YoY growth in sell-through volumes since June 2021 thanks to MEA, China, and India.
