Korg microKorg-S Synthesizer and Vocoder

With a serious sound, ubiquitous design, and superior build quality, the microKORG analog modeling synthesizer became an instant world standard when it was released in 2002. Since then, the microKORG has found its way into the hands of musicians far and wide, and now, receives an update to ensure it will remain one of the world's most beloved synthesizers for years to come.

The new 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 new presets that represent the sounds of a new generation. Beneath the 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 that compact body of the microKORG, we've 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, a clear sense of positioning, and a rich low-frequency range. In addition to the battery-powered operation of the existing model, the inclusion of the 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

The memory capacity has been increased from the original microKORG. Mainly centered on simple and present sounds that shine on stage, we've 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, we've also newly 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.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: So, I've been a guitar player mostly for years with a little bass, drums, and keys thrown in to balance things out. When it comes to synthesis, however, I'm a vestal virgin. I understood that midi was info and not tone but that was about the extent of my knowledge. Oscillators, filters, LFOs were a complete mystery to me along with how to get the various synths to handshake over midi. Buying this synth and a Beatstep pro have dramatically changed this. Simply reading the two manuals has revealed the nuts and bolts of synthesis clearly. I have learned so much in a couple days just taking the time to learn hands on. Sure, there are explanations all over the internet, but having hardware right beside you is the surest way to understand quickly. Now, as for the synth itself? Taking the above in to account, the synth sounds pretty good to me. I can't really judge the tone until I have spent more time with it to see the possibilities but what Ive heard is good. Korg certainly makes solid products with no visible corners cut, quality materials, sturdy construction, etc. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a synth but especially as a gateway synth for the uninitiated: it changed my GAS from all guitar to guitar and synth gear.
Style of Music: Blues Rock, Electronica (I just can't call it EDM), Folk
