Korg microKORG
The MicroKorg is an analog synth with a built on microphone and 8 band vocoder. I have had the MicroKorg since 2007 and I still use it a lot. There are 128 programs with a total of 4 voices. It is very portable because it is light and small plus very durable. I have been taking this keyboard around in just a book bag for a while now and it never as even got a scratch on it, it looks brand new!

UTILIZATION

Using it is simple, but could require some reading in the manual if you have not worked with an analog vocoder before. Even if you have worked with a digital vocoder you will be in for a change with this MicroKorg.

SOUNDS

You can run this on 6 AA batteries or you can use the standard wall supply for power that comes with it (9 V). It weighs less than 5 pounds which is unreal to me that I was able to take this with me almost everywhere and do some really cool stuff. There are also 3 delays effects, 3 modulation effects and 6 arpeggiator effects.

OVERALL OPINION

There is no USB connectivity with this synth but it has 128 presets to work with. No on board sequencer and no audio playback so all of your sounds will have to be running out of the outputs to your speakers or your interface for tracking it into your computer. It does however have MIDI in, MIDI out and MIDI thru though. It comes with a condenser microphone that is attached to it. Also, I noticed that when I use to travel with it; it would eat through those double A batteries pretty fast and I always found myself having to go out and purchase more batteries all of the time. This was not a big issue just frustrating because they would die so fast.

Korg microKORG
Micro Korg, with 3 octaves. Has modulation and pitch control. Also resonance, cutoff, sustain, and tempo controls for synth settings. MIDI and 1/4" out connection. Vocoder accessible. 1/8" microphone input. I have played live with this synth and plugged directly into my Mac to record with excellent results. Largest variety of sounds of any synth you will find.

UTILIZATION

Easy setup, even has MIDI controls. 1/4'' or guitar cord input to easily play through any amp or pa system. Editing the effects is fairly simple. There are already thousands of preprogrammed synth settings. There is a genre selection knob which goes between dance, hip-hop, electronic, house, and 4 other selections to choose from. Once you pick a sound you like you can begin to edit the modulation and pitch from two large controls on the left side of the synth or edit the resonance, cutoff, or sustain with 5 small knobs running across the top right. There is a large manual which I encourage reading because this synth has so many editing effects.

SOUNDS

Perfectly. I use the vocoder and arrpegiator all the time. You can edit the setting on any programmed synth and customize the sound to fit your need. I love the wildcat sounds and airplane noises. There are seriously too many synths programmed on this synth to ever need.

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using this synth for 3 years now and I enjoy the simplicity of it. So many different synth modes you are sure to find any sound you will want. My only complaint is that it has small keys and with my hands I will often hit multiple keys at once. This is the only synth I have owned but have used others and the microkorg is the best. I bought mine used for 200. good price for this synth. They are easy to find used, not necessary to buy a new unit.

Korg microKORG
I. 8 band vocoder - nice!! ii. mini keys - which needs some getting used to iii. included (pc?!??)condenser mic - which i don't use - so i use my own mic instead iv. the usual pitch bend and mod wheels v. the sometimes useful octave shift buttons since it has only 37 keys vi. rather sturdy knobs - i've abused it quite well at gigs and jamming sessions. and trust me, i go crazy. vii. ac or battery powered - what a blippin excellent idea??! i've been to gigs where power connectivity issues come up only to be saved by the fact that it can run on batteries. a fresh set of alkaline batts can definitely go for a full hour and a half - havent tried going for longer. viii. the size - you either love it or loathe it. i play other instruments live as well, so setting up another 25kg gear isnt really preffered when you dont have a roadie-guy who carries and takes care of your stuff when you're drunk after (and before??!) gigs.

Price paid

AUD$899

UTILIZATION

No obvious issues here. once you get a hold of how everything works/tweaks from the manual or trial&error if you're that type, then you'll realise that this baby is a breeze to use.

i've had it for 6 months now, the usual avex thumpings and tweakings have been applied, been on and off many car boots and stage floors, loads of gig masking tapes have grazed on and off it and it still feels and look as new. everything you'd expect from a korg, pretty much.

SOUNDS

Sound quality is excellent considering it is the micro (no pun intended) version of the ms2000b. the sound presets are even 'categorised' in genres - ignore the korg marketing effort here, but nonetheless it has almost everything you could tweak from that 'korg' sound. if you're lucky you could even find presets from the ms2000b online somewhere, all pretty, nice and ready to be dumped into the microKorg.

OVERALL OPINION

Definitely love at first sight, this one. saw somebody demo'd it at the local, and had it ever since. to me, its the kinda gear that rarely gets useless in your studio or live - not so much a necessity but rather a rockin extension to your other gears and sounds.
