From Our Research Team:
Analog Modeled Synth and VocoderThe microKorg delivers the quality sounds and features you expect from Korg at a price that will astound you. Powerful synthesis is the nature of this beast! The microKORG boasts the same dual-oscillator DSP synthesis engine found in Korg's critically acclaimed MS2000 and offers a wider selection of waveforms than almost any other modeled synth. In addition, 64 exclusive DWGS waveforms from Korg's classic DW-8000 enables you to reproduce a broad collection of imitative sounds that are traditionally difficult reproduce on an analog synthesizer with the microKorg.
Korg microKorg at a Glance:
The microKORG also includes an 8-band vocoder with many advanced features. You can capture and "freeze" the formants of your voice, and then play it across the keyboard, or shift the formant frequency to make your voice sound male, female, like a child or just plain wacky! Best of all, the microKORG comes with its own microphone so you can start having fun right away. Combine all of this with four filter modes, three types of modulation effects (chorus/flanger, phaser, ensemble), three types of delay effects (stereo, cross, L/R) and a two band EQ and you have all the tools you need to make driving leads that cut through your mix or lush pads that takes your audience to synthesis heaven.
Flexible presets and audio inputs
To get you started, Korg has included 128 great sounding presets covering a wide range of the latest musical styles. Two external audio input jacks are provided so you can run other instruments, CDs and more through the microKORG's filter and effects allowing even more creative possibilities.
Compact and portable
For the musician on the go, this mini-keyboard sports 37 velocity sensitive keys, MIDI in/out and thru and can run from it's power supply or 6 AA batteries. All parameters are located on the panel for easy access to any function and a large dial and LED illuminated buttons provide easy program selection even on a dark stage.

Great keyboard, better midi controller
by kev from charlote, nc, usaFirst off, the synth sounds are amazing and really easy to program with the layout. I didn't like the wave limitations, so I started using this as a midi controller. It's PERFECT for easy use of plugi... read more [+]ns, because you can scroll through preset banks with ease using the program type knob and buttons on the left side of the control panel. This makes my digital synthesis a lot easier to get into, because I don't have to click on the mouse to get from preset 3 to 77, instead I'm there in a flash with this controller. Not to mention, the keys are great. I have really big fingers (can't use a blackberry) and this thing is great. The action is perfect, I can tap my pointer and middle finger on a key and it registers the different notes no matter what the speed. A great synth and midi controller. Vocoder is pretty awesome. For being almost all plastic it's pretty tough, I knocked it off my desk a few times loading gear onto different desks a few time, still goes 100%. close [-]

Simply put, for short cash you are instantly dropped right into the midst of the analogue synth game. This is hardly a 'beginners' piece- sure the keys are small... but stop crying. It's 400 dollars.
Buy it. close [-]
