Powerful, Versatile, Compact - The Korg microKORG 37 Key Synthesizer / Vocoder


State-of-the-art analog modeling and multi-band vocoding are available in a compact, portable instrument. The Korg microKORG Synthesizer/Vocoder is perfect for the performer, producer, computer musician, or beginner looking for an affordable synthesizer. The Korg microKORG delivers the quality sounds and features you expect from Korg at a price that will astound you.


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 a 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 realtime, 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. 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 a 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.
