Excellent Korg Classic
30.06.2016
Took me a long time to decide on the Microkorg but eventually decided to get one. I loved the retro design of this synth compared to the micro xl which looked a bit bland.

However a synth is about more than just good looks. Sound wise it did not disappoint, it's filled with blistering leads, atmospheric pads and cutting basses. These can all be adjusted in real time using the mod and pitchbend wheels along with the knobs positioned at the top of the keyboard.

It's a solid machine, the casing seems to be a tough plastic, the knobs have a retro styling and the keyboard although mini keys feels a bit spongy but solid to play. Some maybe put off by the 4 note polyphony compared to the XL 8 note, however the sound quality and look of this machine is addictive and inspiring.

I'm looking forward to playing this synth a lot over the coming months. A true modern classic that won't disappoint.

I spend my first 4 hrs with the micro connected to a volca beats, Arp Odyessy and an MS - 20 mini and it was heaven.

Pros, great set of sounds and effects, easy to navigate and play and it looks great in the flesh.

Cons, Mini keys for some, no USB

Decent entry level synth
JohnR, 06.07.2015
I purchased a Microkorg while my mininova was being repaired. It's a decent synthesizer, there are tons of options for making your own sounds; pretty much every parameter you could need is available to you.

There are approximately 64 pre-loaded patches and the sounds are awesome. The true power of the Microkorg is in building your own sounds. There is definitely a learning curve here and you'll have to read the manual / search online.

It's main competitor is the Novation Mininova, which is more user-friendly but has less customisation options.

If you're new to synths, the Mininova may be a better option. If you're looking to build your own patches, the Microkorg is the right synth for you.
