Korg microKORG S features a built-in 2+1 speaker system with power that far exceeds its size. Its body sports an elegant white motif and features additional presets that represent the sounds of a new generation. Beneath microKORG S's sophisticated exterior hides a sound engine both brutal in strength and universal in application.
Built-in 2+1 speaker system ensures a rich and full sound at any volume
Inside the compact body of microKORG Korg has included a carefully constructed speaker system consisting of stereo speakers with clear imaging, plus a woofer that emanates a startling amount of low frequency. The chassis uses a new box structure, and the combination of ample box volume and a bass reflex port takes full advantage of the speakers, thereby delivering a rich sense of volume that exceeds the size of the speakers with a clear sense of positioning and a rich low-frequency range. In addition to optional battery-powered operation, the inclusion of built-in speakers allows an easy yet full-fledged performance experience even in an environment where there is no power supply or PA.
Since the speaker box is contained within the chassis of the instrument, the vibrations from the speaker can be felt through your fingertips. This tactile feedback allows you to experience the same subtle and dynamic response as when playing an acoustic instrument or electric piano.
Increased memory, new programs and additional user programs
Memory capacity has been increased from the original microKORG. Mainly centered on simple and present sounds that shine on stage, Korg added 64 powerful preset programs that meet the needs of the changing music scene, including clearly defined and punchy leads, electric pianos that sound great in an ensemble, and powerful and solid basses. In addition, Korg has also provided 64 additional slots for user programs so you can save your own original sounds without overwriting the presets. This encourages a sound design process that's ideal for this instrument: select a sound that you like, and edit it.
Elegant design retains the spirit of the original
microKORG's distinctive form has been beloved worldwide for more than ten years. microKORG S adds speakers, yet carries on the looks and compact size of the original. In addition, the front panel features an elegant white reboot, updated with maple wood for the side panels.
Favorite Select function
Korg added a Favorite Select function that lets you assign up to eight of your favorite programs. Since this lets you instantly recall the sound you need, it makes live performance even more convenient.
All of the functionality of the original microKORG, plus so much more
This instrument carries on all of the original microKORG's functionality, including the ease of selecting a program of a desired musical genre and then editing the selected sound, a vocoder with an included miniature microphone, and battery operation that allows you to perform anywhere. As a beginner's first synthesizer that's easy to use, as a supplementary live synth for the stage, or as a sound module for production, microKORG S will continue to play a role in every music scene around for many years to come.
