Product Description

Style: microKORG

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!

I have another video review for the Korg M50 61 Key Synthesizer Workstation which is similar to this video review so feel free to check it out if you get chance.

I purchased the microkorg more for the vocoder than the soft-synth but I have to say that both elements are equally stunning. Now this video review of the MicroKorg only covers the very basics - think of it as an overview from someone who has had enough time to play with the keyboard, but has yet to fully get into the deep side of the programming. I haven't even skimmed the surface of what this keyboard can do in terms of sound and versatility.

The synth sounds themselves are amazing as you will hear from the video, and that's despite me using the camera's onboard mic to record. And the vocoder is every ELO fan's dream!

Really for the price there's nothing on the market and it should be in every keyboard musician's toolkit, whether you're a studio performer or a live player. I feel that even the 'sequel' to the MicroKorg, the MicroKorg XL,is less useful as it relies more on connection with a computer than hands-on in the field programming that the MicroKorg can do.

Anyway - have a look at the video and see what you think. Personally I love it!

The MicroKorg is probably the finest synth you'll ever get at that price. It's very small (same size as many of those toy keyboards you grew up as a kid, but this is no toy), and has 37 keys, although the big criticisms here is Korg opted for toy keyboard-sized keys, rather than full-sized keys (the similar sized and similarly priced Alesis Micron, also 37 keys, used full-sized keys). It's a four note polyphonic virtual analog synth capable of fantastic analog sounds, with all the great sounds of the '70s, '80s, and '90s! It's essentially a Korg MS-2000 in a small package, but with an 8-band vocoder (instead of 16-band), and a superior arpeggiator, great for all you electronica and techno buffs out there, or those who want to create Tangerine Dream-like rhythms without the bulky gear that group had to use back in the glory days of the mid '70s. I've been aware of vocoders for ages, and of course, was a huge trademark in Kraftwerk's sound (they started using vocoders starting with 1973's Ralf & Florian, which is one album prior to their famous breakthrough, Autobahn), I am so happy to now personally own a vocoder, that is, one included in a synth. It has a condensor microphone for use of a vocoder, although you can hook up any standard microphone too. Like most any synth made in the last 20-25 years, it's MIDI, so you can have it interact with other MIDI synths, drum machines, your computer, or any other MIDI device.

Although it comes with an AC adapter for home and studio use, you'll be happy that you can use 6 AA batteries, so you can bring it with you on your next camping adventure (plus it has a headphone jack too, since hooking it up to speakers might be a bit difficult in the Great Outdoors).

Style Name: microKORG Verified Purchase
I purchased the microKorg in conjuction with "Welsh's Synthesizer Cookbook" with the desire to have a good dual-oscillator synthesizer to apply the theory I would learn. I won't comment on Welsh's excellent book here, but what I can say about the microKorg is that it is very powerful and versatile, and well-constructed.

The presets are not that great taken by themselves, but they are good templates for experimentation. When I did a youtube search for microKorg demonstrations, what mostly came up were low-grade recreations of Daft Punk vocoder lines, or standard metallic synth lead sounds. The thing is, the vocoder is a great tool, and it's great at leads, but this synth is capable of so much more.

The real power of this synth is the amount of control one has over the sound, especially at this price. One can get everything from lush pads to sharp stabs, all very well-rendered, the quality of which you might find on tracks made by your favorite producers, any genre, be it hip hop, trance, deep house, drum and bass. I've unintentionally gotten lost for hours at a time shaping sounds and playing with jazz chords. It does much much more than the basic leads you see people using this for, that is, if you invest time in reading the manual and learning synthesizer architecture, either through books like Welsh's, or using the "Sound on Sound Synth Secrets" articles that are freely available online.

What's more, this keyboard is also a good midi controller that you can use to play sounds through your digital audio workstation, like Logic, Reason, etc... With the quantity of buttons and knobs, plus the quality of the construction and layout, this is easily worth $100.00 just for that ability. Plus, it has midi lines in and thru.

Style Name: microKORG
bucks but, this product is frekin awesome, i bought it and i am glad i did, the synths are full programmable, the best thing about this synth is that it is SO versatile, has many banks to make and save sounds on, comes with a manual thats clearly laid out. it has a headphones out (1/4") stereo out L & R (2 1/4") dynamic 1/4" and included condenser mic (with mic in) line in and a midi in, out and thru. i am glad because i can use some other midi device to control its tiny keyboard. one of the coolest things i didnt know about the keyboard when i bought it, was it has a 6 AA battery panel to power it, so u dont need wall outlet, the sound quality is fantastic, i had it hooked up mono so im sure stereo is phatty. the synths have a wide range of dynamic controls, and sound like big bucks, for the money you pay for it. it only has truly 3 downsides
1. small cheap feel keyboard (can be a plus because the unit is quite portable)
2. few knobs to get the job done, so you have to go through each set of sound variables to really program the sound, which makes it difficult to do it live.
but once u programmed your sound to where u want to play with only few variables you have got it down
3. ive noticed that almost always i have to turn the knob to its full range, both up and down for it to activate its function as if it re-calibrates everytime on its range of motion (in order to edit a variable, such as arpegiator gate time)

i do recomend you try the unit at a store before buying amazon, so you can see if this unit is for you,
overall with its limitations, and functionality and quality, i must say this unit IS for me! thank you KORG!
