In the summer of 2002, the microKORG Synthesizer / Vocoder opened a new avenue for music-making. Combining mini-keys, battery power, a simple-to-use interface, and phenomenal sound, all at an attractive price, microKORG made the synthesizer available to every musician. The built-in vocoder and selectable-step arpeggiator add a new dimension to performing and recording without the need to master new technologies; and any external sound can be processed by the microKORG’s filter. With dedicated knobs and a complete legend to the editable parameters right on the front panel, microKORG allows each player to easily explore the joys of electronic sound creation!

One of the top-selling synthesizers in the world every year since its release, microKORG remains the champion of Korg’s successful microSERIES: the microKORG XL, microSAMPLER, microPIANO, microSTATION, microKEY, & microARRANGER.

With its compact design, the microKORG is easy to carry and set up. There’s no complex menu structure — all parameters are right there on the panel for easy access to any function.

Six types of arpeggio patterns (UP, DOWN, ALT1/2, Random, Trigger) are built in. You can adjust the length and resolution of the arpeggiated notes, and switch steps on and off to produce cool patterns easily.

You can connect a mic to the AUDIO IN1 jack of the microKORG, and use it for a powerful vocoder that applies the tonal character of a vocal input to the sound of an oscillator, producing the impression that it is speaking or singing.

With its beige-gold body color and wooden side panels, and a retro-feeling design that reflects a pop sensibility, the microKORG projects a powerful visual presence.
