I wonder, that many people love this piece of junk.wake up people ! Microkorg is the worst korg-synth. Only 4 voice-poly,small keys,horrible programming,alliasing and clicks on Osc and weak overdrive. I gave it only 1 point.buy a Nord 2x or the new Korg R3 in April. Peace

I've owned this thing for several years and have put it down/got bored with it occasionally. The thing that is remarkable is how after collecting dust for months this pup can be turned on and take you right back into its grip. It's eminently reusable and instantly gratifying. The sound editor is actually really easy and intuitive to use, and the guests I have over always LOVE to mess with this beast for hours.

Then you consider the more than capable on-board vocoder and its ease of use, and this thing has a definite edge over the competitors, even the larger ones.

There are some cons to this too: I don't mind the smaller keys but the console could use more than 4 note polyphony - however when used as MIDI there is no limit. Also, the way the voices are organized into arbitrary genres is primitive. And also, the screen doesn't give you much info, but thanks to all the info you need being laid out right on the MicroKORG, this is suddenly not such an issue.

Still, this thing is endlessly usable, and something is to be said for the sounds that come out of it - the most important part. It is true that the small size may fool you -- the sounds that come out of this box are every bit as crisp, warm and powerful as any professional would want theirs to be.

That's why it is no surprise to see this baby in use by successful artists.. constantly. Acts ranging from Annie to Beck to the Neptunes to the Killers to the Prodigy to J Dilla to Duran Duran have been known to use and abuse this machine, sometimes pulling out multiple units for a single live performance.

So it has to be doing SOMETHING right, right?

I heard that the team behind this stuff are some genius audio technicians from Japan. Props to them, they've pulled it off alright.

This really is a great little synth. The presets are bad, but I've already cleared out half of them and replaced them with my own sounds. What I've found out is that some of the people who say that "the sounds are bad" are just using the mK for some kind of preset machine...I love it. The only problems I have with this amazing little device are the somewhat cryptic 3-digit display and the mini keys...but I usually hook it up to a master keyboard anyways. It's very portable, even runs on batteries. I've never used a real analog synth, so I don't know how "analog" the mK actually sounds, but I don't care. I can get some great noises out of it, and that's all I care about.
