On its original launch, back in 2002, the MicroKorg was an instant hit and has now gone on to be one of the best selling synths ever. Now with this latest iteration, the Korg MicroKORG S, the world's favourite mini synth is ready for more!
As with the original MicroKORG, the MicroKORG S carries all that much loved, intuative functionality. Simply select your program (sound) from a selection of musical genres (i.e Hip Hop, House, DnB etc), edit the sound should you wish with the 5 assignable controller knobs and start playing! There are 256 programs (4 banks of 64) with the final bank left free for you to save you own sound creations.
Thanks to its ease of use, array of great sounds (with both the original MicroKORG sounds and a selection of new cutting edge tones) the MicroKORG S is the perfect synth for live, studio and home use...and is still, importantly, an affordable instrument, making it great for the beginner too!
With the selection of onboard effects - modulations, delays and EQ you can hone and tweak your sounds, whilst the easy to use arppegiator is great for those instantly satisfying, room (or track) filling runs!
New for this latest incarnation is the addition of a 2+1 speaker system. Built within the chassis, the MicroKORG S hosts system that consists of stereo speakers and a woofer - a system that is able to produce ample volume, clarity and low end which far exceeds expectations.
Like a sound? Want easy access to it? Well, thanks to the Favourite Select function, you can assign 8 of your favourite programs to the 8 instant access buttons...great for gigs!
Another new, and rather obvious update is the new look! The MicroKORG S has been treated to a classy new white finish with elegant maple wood sides.
Just like the original, the MicroKORG S comes complete with a miniature mic for access to those classic vocoder sounds.
Thanks to its size the MicroKorg S is super portable and with the option to be battery powered you really can play this synth anywhere!
The original MicroKorg was a sure fire hit, affordable, great sounding, compact and cool...the MicroKorg S improves on this, ensuring this classic micro synth lives on!
