Korg Mini Pops
Mini Pops was the name given to a number of early drum machines from the Japanese musical equipment company Korg during the late 1960s and the 1970s. The machines were based around a number of preset rhythm patterns, such as waltz, samba and rhumba.
One notable use of a Mini Pops drum machine was by French musician Jean-Michel Jarre, in the final part of his breakthrough album, Oxygene. This rhythm was achieved by overlaying two of the presets in a manner not intended by the machine's original design. Aphex Twin used the Mini Pops drum machine on his album Syro, and named its single "minipops 67 [120.2]" after it.
