KORG microKORG S
The MicroKORG S from Korg is a synthesizer/vocoder housed in a compact but rugged enclosure and features thirty-seven velocity-sensitive “Natural Touch” mini keys and an integrated high-quality 2+1 sound system. Combining analog modeling with a vocoder provides the user with a wide range of styles and sounds. The microKORG S features an updated sound set with 256 presets and 64 user sets for saving your own creations. What’s more, eight favorites can be saved to the quick program selection for quick performance sets.
The vocoder consists of an 8-band filter bank that simulates the sounds of the past, while also allowing for filter-frequency shifting (Format Shift), or adjusting the level and pan of each band to dramatically change the overall character of a sound. A gooseneck microphone is included. Two master effects utilize the effect engine from the company’s Kaoss Pad series, with a total of seventeen types including delay and echo, a ring modulator and grain shifter. Time-based effects can be synchronized to MIDI clock.
