The microKORG Synthesizer/Vocoder has been winning hearts since its 2002 debut, becoming the darling of musicians globally and holding the title of the most beloved hardware synth in music history. The legacy continued with variations like the microKORG XL in 2009 and the microKORG S, featuring 2+1 speakers, not to mention a spectrum of color options. Korg’s mission was simple: bring the allure and joy of synthesizers to both beginners and seasoned musicians, track makers, and creators worldwide. And boy, did they succeed. The microKORG isn’t just compact and user-friendly; it sounds downright amazing.

Dive into the heart of tone creation with the oscillator section. Two oscillators per voice provide a canvas for sonic exploration. Oscillator 1 flaunts 8 built-in waveforms, including sawtooth, square, and audio input. DWGS waveform, offering 64 variations, adds a unique flavor. [CONTROL 1/2] knobs lend hands-on versatility, and a real-time oscilloscope for Oscillator 1 displays waveform changes. Oscillator 2 supports basic waveforms and enables modulation tricks like ring modulation, cross modulation, and hard sync.

The sonic journey continues through the mixer, entering the filter section. Four filter types, including a sharp 24dB mode for the low-pass filter, allow personalized sound sculpting. Post-filter, the sound enters the amplifier section. Here, tweak overall volume, panning, key tracking, and embrace extreme distortion with the dedicated switch.

Recognizing the impact of temporal changes on sound character, the microKORG offers envelope generators. For Mac/Win users, there’s one envelope each for the filter and amplifier. The ADSR 4-stage type is easy to grasp, and a display on the envelope slider visually guides you through shape and progression.

Two built-in low-frequency oscillators (LFO) add periodic flair with options for vibrato, wah, tremolo, and more. LFO 1 boasts sawtooth, square 1, triangle, and sample & hold waveforms, while LFO 2 offers sawtooth, square 2, sine, and sample & hold. The KEY SYNC switch and tempo synchronization add further creative control.

Unleash your creativity with virtual patching, connecting sections of the synthesizer to alter behavior. “microKORG for Mac/Win” supports four modulation routings, each accommodating 8 sources and destinations. Dive deep into sound creation by connecting various modulation sources and destinations. The microKORG saga continues, offering a world of sonic possibilities. Dive in, explore, and let the microKORG redefine your sound.
