Korg microKORG Reviews
I\'ll keep this short and sweet like the microKORG.
A professional level synth that is relatively affordable and looks cool.
This is my first synth (purchased six months ago). When I was trying to find a synth I didn\'t have a clue what I was looking for. I found the microKORG and got the feeling \'this is the one\'.
I can only liken my whole experience to that of fatherhood. At first it was overwhelming and exciting. I trusted my instincts and went with my feeling. Now every day I love it even more and get a little flutter of joy when I look at it.
I bought this keyboard for teaching complete beginners about synthesis. Needless to say this keyboard is so easy to use that you can\'t go wrong. The vocoder function is loads of fun, the kids love it! This is no toy however, the sounds are as high-end as any other synth I have played.
This Synth is simply amazing considering its amazing cheapness!!!!
It Gives you full Control over everything, the arpegiator is absolutely stunning and fully editable, the synth itself looks so vintage, it has a lovely wood effect finish on the sides!!
It has Midi In and out and the vocoder is high quality!
A superb production, worthy to be used by the likes of Gary Numan, Duran Duran, Japan etc
I would Reccomend this for begginers and Synth Wizards/Pro.
First of all I'd like to comment on the style of this synthesizer. It's a very modern and up-to-date synthesizer with a retro look, taking you back to the 80's where synths were worshipped like Gods.
This synth is very powerful, don't let the size put you off, it has 128 analogue sounds pre-programmed into it for you to have fun with.
Editing the sound is easy. You don't have to scroll through endless menus just to alter the portamento slightly, it's all done with the flick of a knob to choose the effect, then the flick of another to change it.
Then there's the vocoder. This is where I was really impressed. Not only does it have 16 preset sounds, but they are editable like the synth sounds, and you get a free mic too. This is value for money, how many other synth vocoders have you seen at this price? Not many.
Also, you can switch between vocoder and synth with the simple turn of a control knob, which also organises the synth sounds into categories for ease of searching for the ones you need.
All sounds can also be changed from synth to vocoder and vice versa, so if you had a really cool synth sound, and you want to use it with the vocoder, just switch it over with a swivel of the knob. Simple!
With the simple click of a button, you can capture the formants of your voice and play them with the keyboard.
This is a synthesizer with countless effects and a fantastic value vocoder that can be changed and manipulated like a ball of clay.
If you can, get the limited edition with reverse colour keys, apparently it will be worth a lot in the future.
I recommend this to beginners and experts alike, so even though it's affordable, it doesn't mean it can't be used by proffesionals.
After all, successful bands such as the Hoosiers and Hot Chip use this machine to great effect!
You can too!
It's simple, sweet and sexy, and you can be pumping out huge fat analogue sounds with the click of a "buy now" button!!!
this kit is amazing. It may look small and unpowerful but when released its a beast very bassy so bass headphones are needed. its everything you ever want. I have tryed out other synths which are higher priced but this came out top.
defenitly needed in techno , drum n bass, trance and so on...
worthy of pro's
I fully recomend it
This synth is in my opinion one of the best synths out there! Its SOOOOOOO powerful for such a small piece of equipment. Everytime you pick this little monster up its like a flurry of creativity just washes over you. You cant pick this thing up with out something cool comin out of it. It doesnt matter if your using it in a studio or a live situation, this keyboard will always sound great!
