Powerful Synthesis

The microKORG boasts the same dual-oscillator DSP synthesis engine found in Korg’s critically acclaimed MS2000 and offers a wider selection of waveforms than any other modeled synth. Oscillator 1 features a total of 71 waveforms . These include traditional analog waves like saw, pulse, sine and noise, plus more unique choices like Vox wave and cross wave. Together they provide a cool selection that can be modulated to produce an extensive range of timbres. In addition, 64 exclusive DWGS waveforms from Korg’s classic DW-8000 enable the microKORG to reproduce a broad collection of imitative sounds. Sounds like bells, electric pianos, guitars, basses and more that would be difficult reproduce on an analog synthesizer. You can also apply Ring and Sync modulation from Oscillator 2 to create the kind of complex timbres that are the true sign of an advanced synthesizer.

Four filter modes are available, offering -12 dB (2-pole) low pass, high pass and band pass configurations plus an extra steep -24 dB (4-pole) low pass setting. All include resonance. Two classic ADSR envelope generators and two MIDI-syncable LFOs provide the power to shape your sounds. Add a Virtual Patch matrix that lets you create advanced modulation settings – routing the Mod Wheel to control filter cutoff or pulse width, using an LFO to control panning or amp level, etc. – and you have performance that is unheard of from a synthesizer in this price range!

Classic Vocoding

The microKORG includes an 8-band vocoder with many advanced features. You can capture and “freeze” the formants of your voice, and then play it across the keyboard, or shift the formant frequency to make your voice sound male, female, like a child or just plain wacky! Best of all, the microKORG comes with its own microphone so you can start having fun right away.

A Full Range of Effects

Three types of modulation effects (chorus/flanger, phaser, ensemble), three types of delay effects (stereo, cross, L/R), and a two-band equalizer add the finishing touch to the microKORG. The delays can be synchronized with the arpeggiator or to an external MIDI clock – a great feature for live performances or for laying down tracks. All effects can be edited to create your own, unique sounds.

Great Sound and Expression

Korg has used all of the microKorg’s synthesis power in the creation of 128 great-sounding presets. They cover a wide range of the latest musical styles plus many vintage favorites. Sixteen vocoder Programs are also included. The Pitch Bend wheel, Modulation wheel and five other knobs provide flexible realtime control over filter cutoff, attack, release and other important parameters. The Edit Mode allows you to fully edit the existing sounds, or to create your own new ones.

Flexible Arpeggiator

Six types of arpeggio patterns (UP, DOWN, ALT1/2, Random, Trigger) are built in, with control over tempo, gate time, swing, and up to a 4-octave range. You can turn individual steps on or off within a pattern, providing the feel and functionality of a step sequencer.

Audio In

Two external audio input jacks are provided, so you can run other instruments, CDs and more through the microKORG’s filter and effects, allowing you to process sounds in truly creative ways.

A Compact MIDI Controller

The microKORG’s compact size is perfect for the musician or DJ looking to add a synth to his or her setup when space is tight. It’s also a great choice for use in a computer-based music setup. The five realtime knobs on the front panel can transmit MIDI messages (control changes), so they can be used as controllers for software synthesizers. Use the 37-note velocity-sensitive mini-keyboard for controlling other gear or for recording and editing with your sequencer. And thanks to battery-power, the microKORG is the ultimate portable controller when used with a laptop computer!

Clear Control and Classic Looks

There’s no complex menu structure – all parameters are located on the panel for easy access to any function. A large dial and LED illuminated buttons provide easy program selection even on a dark stage. With its beige-gold body, wooden side panels and retro-influenced design, the microKORG has a look that’s both vintage and funky.

Korg microKORG Reviews

Korg microKORG

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.

Microkorg XL

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.

Size Matters Not

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 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!
