microKORG delivers the quality sounds and features you expect from Korg at a price that will astound you. Powerful synthesis is the nature of this beast! The microKORG boasts the same dual-oscillator DSP synthesis engine found in Korg's critically acclaimed MS2000 and offers a wider selection of waveforms than almost any other modeled synth. In addition, 64 exclusive DWGS waveforms from Korg's classic DW-8000 enables you to reproduce a broad collection of imitative sounds that are traditionally difficult to reproduce on an analog synthesizer.
microKORG also 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, microKORG comes with its own microphone so you can start having fun right away. Combine all of this with four filter modes, three types of modulation effects (chorus/flanger, phaser, ensemble), three types of delay effects (stereo, cross, L/R) and a two-band EQ and you have all the tools you need to make driving leads that cut through your mix or lush pads that takes your audience to synthesis heaven.
Flexible presets and audio inputs
To get you started, Korg has included 128 great sounding presets covering a wide range of the latest musical styles. Two external audio input jacks are provided so you can run other instruments more through microKORG's filter and effects, allowing even more creative possibilities.
Compact and portable
For the musician on the go, this mini-keyboard sports 37 velocity sensitive keys, MIDI in, out and thru and can run from its power supply or 6 AA batteries. All parameters are located on the panel for easy access to any function and a large dial and LED-illuminated buttons provide easy program selection even on a dark stage.
