Korg microARRANGER Portable Arranger at a Glance:
Compact and portable arranger
Weighing in at just over 10 lbs., the Korg microARRANGER is extremely portable while being very powerful. This 61-key keyboard is a full-blown arranger that measures only 34" across, so you can easily throw it in the car or haul it on the subway. Don't let the small size fool you, the Korg microARRANGER gives you 62-note polyphony, over 650 sounds, 89 effects, 304 styles, and a 16-track sequencer.
Effortlessly create accompaniments and songs
You can easily and quickly create back-up accompaniments and songs on the Korg microARRANGER thanks to its 304 styles. Enter the chords to your composition and tell the microARRANGER to add a style to it. You can choose styles such as jazz, ballad, Latin, rock, pop, and many more. The microARRANGER analyzes your chords and generates parts following your chords. There are four variations to each style to choose from, and you can edit the style to be exactly what you want and save it to use later. There are even more styles available online to download and add to your collection. Styles go further than drums and bass. You can add horn sections, guitar, and more. You can enter your chords and melody in realtime or in step mode.
Switch sounds with a single button
Need to switch sounds fast? Four STS (Single Touch Settings) buttons allow you to have up to four sounds split and layered across the keyboard and switch them all instantly with a single button press. The STS assignments can be saved independently for each Style.
Create rich backing tracks for live performances
Taking the Korg microARRANGER to gigs is like taking a back-up band, except you can haul this band in a gig bag. With the Jukebox function you can set up your playlist and let it roll all night long without having to touch the keyboard again. The life-like drums, bass, keyboards, horns, and more give your gig a professional touch that regular MIDI accompaniment doesn't. Via the SD card you can transport tons of songs and load them into your microARRANGER at the gig to make sure you have appropriate songs no matter what the situation. With Korg's XDS Dual Sequencer, one can load as the other plays, and a DJ-style cross fader can blend between them, providing a seamless, continuous musical performance.

Even though I have a lot of pro-level boards, the mini-keys were no problem...and actually respond quite well to velocity. Indeed, this is not a toy !! The sounds are great...the arranger functions are well thought out...the build quality, although plastic, is quite good...and the price is a real NO-BRAINER .

I was looking to buy the Korg PA3x...but this was a great way to find out if an arranger was for me without investing a lot of money. Because of this, I will be saving for the PA3X...but I'm keeping this little jewel. close [-]

I like the micro concept and this keyboard fits nicely by my computer, always ready to jam or record. Sounds are way better then I'm used to and the styles are superb. Yes, you can get even better at much higher prices, but this fits my budget and is more than I even expected and completely outperforms anything in the same price range. I am truly delighted with the microARRANGER! close [-]

Very Powerful but Takes Time to Learn
by Mike from MIEven if you don't want an arranger, this board has so many incredible sounds that alone makes it worth the price.

Likewise, the tenor sax program (program appears to be Korg's word for the sound itself - in Roland World I think they call it timbre) and Sweet Harmonic are worth the price itself. Oh, and the syth sounds are just as fat and analog sounding as those in the MicrKorg, which itself is an amazing instrument. And all sounds are editable.

In terms of its styles, which make up the heart of the arranger, they are fun and some are quite amazing -- "Jazz Brush" is one of my favorites. Once you learn to use the Single Touch Settings you can modify the programs in the styles more easily.
The Backing Sequencer is pretty inutitive and after a while I learned how to work the real time sequencer and the event editor in Song mode - to at least make some simple songs. But there is so much power in style editing and effects and you really, really need to use the manual to figure those things out. In fact, you need to read the manual for a lot of things. I have seen both the Microstation manual and this one, and I believe, in my opinion, the Microstation is a bit easier to follow, but that may simply be the result of there is so much stuff here!
Still, once you catch on to some of the concepts it becomes easier and the quality of the styles, the ability to add more programs, performances and styles from the Korg PA series, and just the quality of the sounds themselves make this well worth the money.
Mini-keys? As a non-keyboard player, I love them! They let me play better than I ever had. The action is more synth than weighted action, but each sound is so good you learn to adapt to that. All in all, I love this keyboard and am having a lot of fun with it and would not hesitate to recommned it. close [-]
