Making music takes plenty of passion and skill - and when your music is electronic, it also takes the right technologies to get each composition off the ground. The Korg MicroKORG is the perfect example of that, with all the built-in tools you need to create world-class compositions and put your musical talents to the test. It's a compact synthesizer and vocoder that you can take anywhere - use it in your at-home studio, or pick it up and go on the road: the choice is yours. Each Microkorg model features DSP analog modeling for great versatility, and an 8-band vocoder so you can easily add vocals into the mix when you make your next masterpiece.
For the original MicroKORG experience, check out the Korg MicroKORG Synthesizer/Vocoder. This familiar model is decked out with 37 keys and 128 customizable programs, offering up a nice balance of performance and affordability. You get the same dual-oscillator DSP synthesis engine that's in the larger MS2000, not to mention a selection of waveforms that goes above and beyond the average for a modeled synth. On top of that, there's the vocoder as well as two audio inputs, allowing you to process voice and instrument input to your heart's content.
If you like the original model but you want to turn things up another notch, then the Korg MicroKORG XL+ Synthesizer/Vocoder is the way to go. The foundation for this synth is the same feature set that makes the traditional MicroKORG so sought-after, but it takes things a step further with even more vintage sounds, such as the Korg SGproX piano, M1 and VOX organs. The MicroKORG XL+ also works on battery power, so you can play it just about anywhere. If you want to leave limits behind, this synth is your new best friend.
In a nutshell, the Korg MicroKORG is a nicely-bundled package of powerful synthesis, classic vocoding, plenty of effects and a versatile arpeggiator, all underpinned by great sounds and expression. When you need a synth and vocoder that can do it all without taking up an entire desktop in your studio or mobile setup, the MicroKORG is a top-tier candidate.
