Powerful synthesis The microKORG is a serious yet compact synthesizer with a strong personality, giving you the true enjoyment of creating sounds. 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. The microKORG’s multi-mode filter offers two types of low-pass filter (-12 dB/-24 dB), a band-pass, or a high-pass filter. The amp section allows you to shape the volume of the sound over time. You can also switch a powerful distortion on/off. Two classic ADSR envelope generators and two MIDI-syncable LFOs provide the power to shape your sounds. Add a Virtual Patch matrix to 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. You have performance that is unheard of from a synthesizer vocoder in this price range.
Classic vocoder and up to 128 programs The microKORG includes an eight-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 filter frequencies to make your voice sound male, female, like a child, or just plain wacky! The microKORG also comes with its own microphone so you can start having fun right away. In addition, the microKORG contains 128 programs covering a wide range of current and classic synth and vocoder sounds. Thanks to the clear genre categories, you can easily access the sounds you need. Just select the music style/sound category you want and pick a sound! Once you select a sound, the five knobs will control the most important functions you would want in performance for immediate results.
A full range of effects The microKORG provides three types of modulation effects (chorus/flanger, phaser, ensemble), three types of delay effects (stereo, cross, L/R), and a two-band equalizer to add the finishing touch to your sound. The delay effect can be synchronized with the arpeggiator or an external MIDI clock, a great feature for live performances and groove-oriented music. All effects can be edited simply by turning knobs to create your own unique sounds.
Flexible arpeggiator and Audio in Six types of arpeggio patterns (UP, DOWN, ALT1/2, Random, Trigger) are built in. You can adjust the length and resolution of the arpeggiated notes, and switch steps on and off, to produce cool patterns easily. In addition, the microKORG provides two external audio input jacks. You can apply filtering or effects to an external sound, such as a sampler or other audio source, to create truly original sounds.
A compact MIDI controller The microKORG is perfect for use in a computer-based music production setup. The five knobs on the panel can transmit MIDI messages (control changes), so they can be used as controllers for software synthesizers. You can use the 37-note velocity-sensitive mini-keyboard for recording into your sequencer. And thanks to the battery-powered operation, the compact microKORG is the ultimate portable controller when used with a laptop computer!
Classic Looks, Clear Control With its beige-gold body color, wooden side panels, and a retro-feeling design, the microKORG has a look that's both vintage and funky. A large dial and LED illuminated buttons provide easy program selection, even on a dark stage. There's no complex menu structure: all parameters are listed and accessible from the panel for easy access to any function.
