In 2012, the microKORG celebrated its 10th birthday. Now in 2013, to commemorate Korg's 50th anniversary, the microKORG is now available in a new, limited edition, Gold! The microKORG-GD (gold) boasts the most gorgeous exterior in the history of the microKORG. Quantity is limited to 2,000 units world-wide.
A true synthesizer with an analog modeling tone generator
The microKORG is a serious yet compact synthesizer with a strong personality, designed to give you the true enjoyment of creating sounds. The tone generator features the same DSP analog modeling system as the MS-2000 - which has been acclaimed by musicians for its warmth and broad range of sounds. Offering a wide selection of waveforms, the microKORG offers powerful filters, envelopes, LFOs, effects and modulation possibilities to help you shape the sounds you want.
You can edit the sound easily and intuitively, simply by selecting parameters and turning knobs. Since it's easy to modify the sound in real-time, the microKORG can play a role in a wide variety of situations ranging from live performance, to recording, to computer control.
Powerful-sounding oscillator section
Each voice of the microKORG consists of two oscillators (OSC1 and OSC2). OSC1 provides basic analog waveforms such as sawtooth wave, square wave and sine wave, as well as VOX Wave (human voice formats) and 64 DWGS waveforms from Korg's classic DW-8000 digital synthesizer. This is a total of 71 possible selections, more than any other modeling synthesizer!
Many of these waves can be further shaped to produce classic effects like pulse width modulation, FM and other forms of waveshaping. By applying ring- or sync-modulation from OSC2 with its three basic analog waveforms, you can easily create extremely complex sounds that would be impossible using just a single oscillator. An external audio input can be used to route audio into the microKorg and process it with the filter and effects sections. Eight oscillator types: Sawtooth wave, square wave, triangle wave, sine wave, Vox wave, DWGS x 64, Noise, Audio In
Knife-sharp filter section
The multi-mode filter of the microKORG lets you choose from two types of low-pass filter (-12 dB/-24 dB), a band-pass or a high-pass filter. Filter resonance can be adjusted to emphasize a frequency peak and will self-oscillate if desired. These extremely sharp filters give you the versatility to create any tone from traditional fat sounds to cutting dance sounds.
An amp section with great presence and distortion
The amp section allows you to shape the volume of the sound over time. In addition to adjustable volume and pan, you can switch a powerful distortion on/off. This can be used to add a distinctive "edge" to any sound, letting you produce extremely intense tones.
EG and LFO add subtle tonal movement
The EG (Envelope Generator), which applies time-variant change to the sound parameters, is a classic ADSR design (Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release) and can also be used as a modulation source. Two types of LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) are provided, letting you apply cyclic modulation to the sound parameters. High-speed DSP processing ensures that vibrato, wah and tremolo effects are produced very smoothly.
Virtual patches for even more sophisticated sound-editing
The microKORG provides a virtual patch function which simulates the patching functionality of classic Korg synthesizers of the past such as the PS series and MS series, letting you specify four modulation routings. Each patch consists of a modulation source "SOURCE" [1], a modulation destination "DEST" [2] and a modulation intensity adjustment "MOD INT" [3]. A modulation source or controller such as Filter EG, AMP EG, LFO 1/2, keyboard tracking or wheel can be freely connected to a parameter such as pitch, cutoff or amp to create more flexible and sophisticated sounds.
microKORG Sound Editor
By using a USB cable to connect the microKORG to your computer and using the sound editor software, you can edit all of the parameters easily from your computer.
Versatile and distinctive vocoder
You can connect a mic to the AUDIO IN1 jack of the microKORG and use it for a powerful vocoder that applies the tonal character of a vocal input to the sound of an oscillator, producing the impression that it is speaking or singing.
This is an eight-band vocoder (the sixteen filters are used in pairs) that can not only simulate the classic vocoder sounds of the past, but also shift the filter frequencies (Formant Shift function) or even adjust the level and panning of each frequency band to dramatically transform the tonal character and create highly original sounds. In addition, the Formant Hold key freezes the formants of the input vocal signal, allowing you to capture your voice and play it on the keyboard. Since the microKORG ships with a microphone, you can start using the powerful vocoder function immediately.
While vocalizing into the mic and using the keyboard to play vocoder sounds, you can "freeze" the current tone of the vocoder by pressing the Formant Hold key. This allows you to continue to play the current vocoder sound, even when you are not vocalizing. This tone will be remembered when you write the vocoder program to memory. Several of the vocoder bank programs will sound even if you simply play the keyboard. These programs were written with Formant Hold turned on.
128 programs for immediate use
The microKORG contains 128 programs covering a wide range of current and classic synth and vocoder sounds. From the warm and rounded tones characteristic of analog modeling, to sharp and extreme sounds, you can easily access the sounds you need, thanks to the clear genre categories that the sounds are organized by.
Just select the music style/sound category you want and pick a sound! Once you select a sound the five knobs will control the most important functions you would want in performance for immediate results.
A full range of effects
The microKORG provides three types of modulation effects (chorus/flanger, phaser, ensemble), three types of delay effects (stereo, cross, L/R) and a two-band equalizer to add the finishing touch to your sound. The delay effect can be synchronized with the arpeggiator or an external MIDI clock, a great feature for live performances and groove- oriented music. All effects can be edited simply by turning knobs to create your own unique sounds.
Freely settable arpeggiator
Six types of arpeggio patterns (UP, DOWN, ALT1/2, Random, Trigger) are built in. You can adjust the length and resolution of the arpeggiated notes and switch steps on and off to produce cool patterns easily.
Process an external audio source via the audio inputs
The microKORG provides two external audio input jacks. You can apply filtering or effects to an external sound such as a sampler or other audio source to create truly original sounds.
MIDI controller functionality
The microKORG is perfect for use in a computer-based music production setup. Since the five knobs on the panel can transmit MIDI messages (control changes), they can be used as controllers for software synthesizers.
You can use its 37-note velocity-sensitive mini-keyboard for recording into your sequencer. And of course the microKORG can be used as an external sound module with powerful synthesizer and vocoder functionality. Thanks to its small size and battery-powered operation it's the ideal match for use with portable notebook computer systems.
Controls designed for easy access
With its compact design, the microKORG is easy to carry and set up. There's no complex menu structure all parameters are right there on the panel for easy access to any function. Designed for live performance, all the important controls are large and easy- to-read, even on dimly lit stages. And by taking advantage of its real-time capabilities, you can make your stage sound even more powerful.
Pop and distinctive looks and an included mini-mic
With its beige-gold body color and wooden side panels and a retro-feeling design that reflects a pop sensibility, the microKORG projects a powerful visual presence. Included with the microKORG is a miniature condenser mic for use with the vocoder that can be adjusted to the desired angle.
