State-of-the-art analog modeling and multi-band vocoding are available in a compact, portable instrument. With 37 keys and 128 user-rewritable programs, the microKORG Synthesizer/Vocoder is perfect for the performer, producer, computer musician or beginner looking for an affordable synthesizer. The microKORG delivers the quality sounds and features you expect from Korg at a price that will astound you.

The microKORG boasts the same dual-oscillator DSP synthesis engine found in Korgs 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 Korgs 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!

Bought a Microkorg a few years ago and have gotten a lot out of it. Great for deep basses, chiptune sounds, noisey leads, and more. Built in FX are decent. I actually don't mind the smaller keys. I have created more sounds that I like and ended up using on this inexpensive synth than I have on my more expensive Moog and DSI synths.

The microKORG is a staple in any home musician's arsenal of instruments, and for a good reason. It has the image of being a cheap synthesizer for beginners, which is both an unfair and accurate summary of the product. Overall; you will not find something like this at a similar price point that combines incredible sound and ease of use. Pros: -Great way to learn about synthesizers, as the editing grid printed on the microKORG lets you know what you are editing. Some see this as annoying, but it isn't nearly as annoying as going through menus. -Customizable patches that can be saved, either made on the synth or on a PC. -The option for real time editing. -Good layout. Arpeggiator, octave buttons, and other knobs are placed in a way that makes sense. I never feel trapped by the interface. -Flexible for almost any type of music. -Tones are very good. From stabs, smooth pads, soaring leads and powerful bass, there's not much you can't do. -Portable and is able to be battery operated. -Vocoder is incredible and sounds as such. -Very good value. -An odd plus is that the manual is extremely helpful for beginners. Cons: -While it does not feel fragile, the build quality could definitely be better. -A pretty big one for me; four note polyphony. You're not going to be playing thick chords by any means. -Not the greatest feeling keys, and many don't like the size of them (I personally don't mind). -While experienced users may enjoy this synth, some may not feel like they're getting a lot of the options they are used to. Bottom line: A good and powerful synthesizer/vocoder for what it has to offer. Perfect for beginners and interesting to own and tweak for experts. The features are top-notch and the sound is incredible.

I am not very experienced with synths, so I decided to get one that was fairly affordable with little learning curve. The Microkorg has been perfect so far! The presets do sound kind of cheesy (which happens to be perfect for my uses), but if you don't like them you can easily edit the presets. The build quality doesn't feel entirely solid so I would be careful handling it. It looks as cheesy as it sounds which, again, I think is what makes it charming. While the keys are small, I'm not going to hold that against this product; I think it is to be expected for its compact size. Overall, the Microkorg may not be for everyone in that the sounds may not be what you want, but its applications spread fairly wide. 9/10 only because the build quality could be better.
