With 37 keys and 128 user-rewritable programs, this MicroKORG gives a wide range of preset options for the experienced or novice musicians. These sounds are broken out into 8 basic groups: trance, techno/house, electronica, d’n’b/breaks, hip hop/vintage, retro, special effects/hit and vocoder, allowing you to play just about every genre you could ever want. You can even capture your voice and play across the keyboard or shift the frequency to completely change your tone.
The smaller size is ideal for DJ’s who need to rock the house in cramped quarters or for users with a computer based music setup. Realtime knobs on the front panel transmit MIDI messages to be used as controllers for software synthesizers. It also works perfectly as a portable controller with a laptop thanks to full battery powered option. A full range of DJ effects are also included, like modulation, delay and a two-band equalizer giving you endless options and entertainment possibilities. These delays can all be edited and manipulated to your own unique sound.
The MicroKORG is surprisingly user-friendly for such a high-tech instrument. A front panel provides easy access and the large dial and LED illuminated buttons are simple to use. The Korg MicroKORG Vintage Gold Synthesizer/Vocoder has an attractive retro look as well, sure to look great in your studio or up on stage.
