Since 2002 Korg's microKORG analog modeling synthesizer became an instant hit with synth enthusiasts all over the world. Now is the age of the superb Korg MicroKorg S Synthesizer and Vocoder that builds on the original with a powerful analog modeling synth engine, new on-board speaker system and more to deliver sounds that will add custom quality to your music production and performance.
Elegant, lightweight and strong
The new, white and wood elegant design of the MicroKorg S retains the spirit of the original synth, but adds a layer of practical beauty. The top white panel clearly presents all of the controls for easy access to all parameters whilst the maple wood sides give the MicroKorg S a touch of vintage class.
Despite retaining it's original size, the MicroKorg S comes with a 2.1 audio system consisting of 2 x 0.5 watt stereo speakers and a 3 watt mini-woofer to deliver some surprisingly strong audio when used as a standalone unit. Of course if you wish to connect the MicroKorg S to any other audio or MIDI sources, there's full connectivity to do so.
More memory, more fun
As soon as you start cycling through the 64 built in preset programs you'll be presented with powerful and up to date sounds including solid basses, punchy leads, rich electric pianos and more. From here, you can tweak and customise any of the voices to your hearts content. Adding effects, changing envelopes and warping sounds out of all recognition! Any of your creations can be stored in one of the 64 user memory banks for instant recall.
For expressive performance, the MicroKorg S not only contains a 37-note velocity sensitive keyboard, but also pitch and modulation wheels as well as 5 real-time control knobs to manipulate your sound as much as you want.
Instant music creation
The Korg MicroKorg S Synthesizer and Vocoder was deigned with instant music creation in mind. Included with the synth is an AC adapter and a gooseneck-design condenser microphone so that you can begin creating your new sound right out of the box. This is one little synth that's going to make a big impression.
