Korg microKORG Limited Edition Black sees in the 10th anniversary of this legendary analog modeling synth, which has brought affordable state-of-the-art analog modeling and multi-band vocoding to so many. Korg microKORG Limited Edition Black boasts the same compact, portable chassis loaded with 37 keys and 128 user-rewritable programs as the original, but in a new livery. microKORG Limited Edition Full Black is perfect for the performer, producer, computer musician or beginner looking for an affordable synthesizer, delivering an array of quality sounds and features.
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. Korg 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.
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.
microKORG compact size makes it 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.
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, making Korg microKORG Limited Edition Full Black a breeze to drive.
