    Mini keyboard, not very pleasant and somewhat accurate but hey it's not a Steinway ...
    for the rest it is well supplied, full of modifiable parameters (a little boring but it goes)
    2 output jack, a microphone jack or minijack between between midi output ...
    not enormment presets but unfortunately seen their quality AC simply because I replace them with my little sounds a little !!
    there is a software for PC, I do not really serve for now I remain on the beast ...

    USE

    The edition a bit boring but it's still understandable, the parameters are written in small and me who do not have very good eyes I galere a bit to read on the machine ...
    manual and very good, clear and concise…

    USE

    The edition a bit boring but it's still understandable, the parameters are written in small and me who do not have very good eyes I galere a bit to read on the machine ...
    manual and very good, clear and concise (and it's been fun saw that MUST READ THE MANUAL OF YOUR MACHINE if you want to use the maximum)

    SONORITS

    The presets are very average for my taste but the bass that are just incredible !! (attention your HP !!) after having used hundreds vsti I can tell you it's been nothing, but really nothing to do! !dropoff window
    the rest is cool without being phenomenal, the vocoder is nice (if not using the original microphone which is a micro computer has 1 euro!), the arpegiatteur is not bad at all, I ' still uses a bottom but I'm on it ...
    practices and the effects are not too bad (the equalo does his job, hence the big bass among others ...)
    if you take the time to get its presets I think it can really sound terrible

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I've had 6 months ... I was looking for a true analog becaufe lass "small sound" vsti ... but I wanted anyway MIDI ... I test this little monster into a store and I immediately craqu especially for the price !!

    the edition is not very pleasant but it is essential if we really want to get something out of the beast becaufe presets are particularly bad for my taste (techno sounds of the 90's ...) except some bass presets that are fantastic.
    hey it is surely not sound as well as a moog, arp or other, but frankly the Low is stunning! (Attention to speakers, they may take a hit if they are tired !!)

    if you are looking for a synth that sounds cheap and it's worth it provided you have the patience to program his own sounds (or you could use 4 sounds !!)

    Emulation of analog synthesis. That is to say almost as analog, but that's not it at all watching and listening more closely.
    I'm pretty disappointed I expected better from Korg.
    There just arpeggiator which is good for techno improvisation.

    USE

    The menus and multi-parameter knobs are a bit daunting to use. It's still better when everything is in front. Everything here is under the eyes away from it. It lacks clarity.
    The keyboard is too small and not very good

    SOUNDS

    In practice we perceive faster than the AC analog emulation does not. It just wrong ear but not for long. There is always something missing. I find the sound too light but not in the good way. This is the low…

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    Despite the fact that they are trying at all costs seem vintage. It is pure illusion. It is better to put a little more in machines that have a better sound.
    Good lice can be fun c is not bad but not great

    Note 8; not so provided in the abstract, but very well equipped for the price.

    UTILIZATION

    Note 7; the matrix is ​​a bit dicey, and should be handled with white button settings (there are two) for the μK returns to edit mode in the right line matrix (indicated by an LED). But all settings are accessible from the front panel.

    SOUNDS

    Note 8; it does not sound "toy".

    OVERALL OPINION

    We agree, the keyboard laying there like a bad joke, and I grant you, the keys have such a spring, that sound bounces are common (much like a drum roll); its velocity response, although real, is anecdotal, because it is difficult to be determined (it is almost always fully). Some agreements are infeasible. However, this mini keyboard gives this unit a very attractive space which predisposes to nomadic applications. It will do nicely to control a DAW or hardware sequencer as part of a programming step or real time "post-corrected", especially as the essential parameters of the master keyboard were not forgotten.

    Its low polyphony also contributes to ridicule again, and relegated to simple plug-in applications, like the supplied microphone, too sensitive to "pops", but its aspects "toy" end there ... In fact, the Sound quality is waiting for you, both in terms of lack of breath and precision audio, as timbral character interesting and triturable. Not very experienced in programming sounds, I will not go into this area, but some presets you confirm that this is a real synth, with inspiring sounds.

    Question vocoder, it is certain that 2x8 strips (stereo) will miss intelligibility, but this function is particularly flexible in use. Indeed, it is not limited to modulate the internal sounds with your captured by the supplied microphone voice. The microKorg has a (compatible dynamic microphone mono jack, and line level via switch) modulating input AND a carrier input (Jack mono line-level only). So, more polyphony limitation, since you can map agreements crazy on another synth that generate the carrier, which can modulate anything (of course your voice but also drum machine wave radio, etc ...). But in this case, by treating only external signals, the output level of μK is a little low, but nothing that really undermine the report signed / noise.
    These inputs for external signals can also be used to process said signals with the filter and the internal effects (delay + phaser or flanger or chorus). The latter, incidentally, fishing by the lack of precision of temporal settings (delay time and LFO rate to encode from 0 to 127 bananas, not ms or Hz), but they are synchronized by midi note.

    Existing very long catalog (always as successfully) and offered at a reasonable price, the μK lets have fun and discover the joys of vocoding in its main forms. But also, with the use of some serious devices (micro HPF + pro + compressor, or samplée voice), can be used for well established compelling applications.

    Beware if you are interested in microKorg XL: news I bring you now is to verify (call to users of XL), but ask you to avoid any unpleasant surprises. Indeed, it would have only one external input. Following the switch to activate either the control panel XLR (MIC) or Jack on the rear panel (LINE). You can only use the internal sounds μK XL carrier, which is a lack compared to basic μK! Yet enjoying double polyphony (except vocoder fashion: 4 ditto μK, so eventually agreements crazy ...), double filter strips, sampled sounds and a seemingly keyboard better, the XL n therefore is not so far improved in every way ... μK

    - The sound delivered by the vocoder, they are injected via a quality mic or via the supplied microphone is pretty average
    - The polyphony is very limited if you play the pads, do not ask him too and play such agreements to 8 fingers! ouliez .. Ok for Leads but not for Pads (although it sounds so nice ..)

    UTILIZATION

    The general configuration is simple, yes and no. Let me explain: if we limit ourselves to load presets, and edit basic settings for editing (cutoff, resonance, attack, release) pots, fine.

    After it's in the editing matrix that I am a bit put off, not that the issue is complicated in itself, but must look at the category where you want to go, stalling the knob on the right location, I do not find it intuitive .. I mean compared to analog that all controls are in the hands bah hush hush! That said, it still manages to good results quickly, the experience becomes more intuitive with use! This also justifies its price. it makes me want to try the MS2000 to compare.

    I bought OCCAZ and without the manual, I have downloaded, but I've always hated to read instructions on pdf! I find it very off-putting! Finally, anyway if you know the basic subtractive synthesis, it comes out very quickly!

    In addition, the software publisher provides overcomes possibly burnished the editing matrix.

    SOUNDS

    While there, bravo! Pleasantly surprised! They are suitable for any style accepting synth sounds. Unlike some reviews I read, I found the presets very good bill (especially vintage / hip-hop / retro), the organ sound VOX to The Doors, or moog bass (eg the bass level I find it downright fatter and warmer than the microbrute (though that is a true analog)
    ) And lead hip-hop! Very successful! Its also very beautiful fleurtant with certain tones of ARP2600, the beautiful strings! frankly it is downright vst I've tested as good as it is.


    I find that that the closest level sound quality, or timbre is the Polysix Korg Legacy Collection, but the sounds anyway mK hotter!



    Although some say that mix bah everything is mixed, I think that's still a difference!

    After this is a synth, so actually, if you want piano sounds, or rhodes, bah you will be disappointed!

    The overall expression seems correct, at least I did not complain to me m

    OVERALL OPINION

    About 7 months that I have. I flashed over there a long time, but wanted to be on my purchase (I noticed that the shopping whim often regret). I would only advise those who are eyeing on to go even videos youtub. There was also a series that is easily where almost all the presets are played by category. The best is after the test either by yourself!

    No, I have not tried other models except vst, and frankly nothing to do! There's a grain, one would think there!

    Feature I like least: editing, just laborieurse
    Feature I like most: sOOOOOOOOOOONNNNS!!

    Bought about 260 €, price excellent quality! I would do this choice live! In addition it is beautiful ^ ^

    UTILIZATION

    The challenge here was clear: having a maximum patch of modification possibilities for a minimum of space.
    When you see the number of opportunities on the same sound, it's really surprising and pleasant.
    Surprising because when I bought it, I really do not expect to be able to make as many changes. Nice because even though at first it may seem a little strange (These buttons turn need to go through the different options) you get used to very quickly.
    The manual is very clear and well organized.

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are excellent!
    For electronica in any case, I find it really good. The soft sounds are perfect. I have more against evil to produce fat sound, but we'll say it's because it's not really what I want, I have to put the bad will, I'm sure it is possible.
    The big plus is the arpeggiator, which is truly exceptional: it is simple, you can do everything, everything is adjustable and configurable.
    The effects are good, but I lack of benchmarks, however, they still seem a bit light.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I received earlier this year, and I waited a little excitement as the reception drops to give the most objective advice possible.
    This synth has allowed me to get closer to the sound of analog, for a very low cost and with sounds that I had not imagined possible at the reception.
    If one day I got tired (I highly doubt) I could always convert it into MIDI keyboard.

    PS: As the level of effects, I can not really give my opinion on the "hit" on the keyboard.
    Before, I had to have the rotten pad MC 307, while next door, this keyboard is velvet.

    The MicroKorg is an analog synth with a built on microphone and 8 band vocoder. I have had the MicroKorg since 2007 and I still use it a lot. There are 128 programs with a total of 4 voices. It is very portable because it is light and small plus very durable. I have been taking this keyboard around in just a book bag for a while now and it never as even got a scratch on it, it looks brand new!

    SOUNDS

    You can run this on 6 AA batteries or you can use the standard wall supply for power that comes with it (9 V). It weighs less than 5 pounds which is unreal to me that I was able to take this with me almost everywhere and do some really cool stuff. There are also 3 delays effects, 3 modulation effects and 6 arpeggiator effects.

    OVERALL OPINION

    There is no USB connectivity with this synth but it has 128 presets to work with. No on board sequencer and no audio playback so all of your sounds will have to be running out of the outputs to your speakers or your interface for tracking it into your computer. It does however have MIDI in, MIDI out and MIDI thru though. It comes with a condenser microphone that is attached to it. Also, I noticed that when I use to travel with it; it would eat through those double A batteries pretty fast and I always found myself having to go out and purchase more batteries all of the time. This was not a big issue just frustrating because they would die so fast.

    To summarize: two large knobs that select the parameter to modify (eg filter) and 5 potentiometers that alter the parameter (eg, cutoff, resonance, etc..) And all parameters are clearly written on the front of MK. Note the presence of a small lamp called "Original Value" that lights up when you turn the knob on the original value, very useful in case of bad manipulation. This is for the simple part. If you want to make things worse it is clear on the MK 3 sections patches very interesting. They can adjust the sound according to the LFO, the Filter EG, Amp EG, etc.. just like the big synths of yesteryear. Side effects of base: phaser (excellent), flange, delay, together.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds really suit all styles of electronic music with a very good emulation of vintage sounds.
    Velocity is not against not his strong point.
    Side effects phaser is really the best of all, the flanger should be reviewed on the other hand (too much bass, muffled sound).
    One thing is certain sounds are very hot, we start to laugh saying "a small creature that sends terribly"
    The best is yet to test it (as all keyboards) because after all it is a matter of taste.

    A few years ago I was challenged to take Oxygen 4 Jean Michel Jarre solely on the keyboard (except for the rhythm) and without external effects, here is the result: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ 8dynftbn2l1oyq7/Oxyg% C3% A8ne% 204.mp3
    Note that I have improved since some sounds but I have not had time to re-register.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 8 years and this is my little favorite with Nordlead 2.

    I immediately bought because there is also a vocoder (I never used ironically), it is really big, big sound, very hot (I sometimes reproach him for being too hot) and a price more than correct.

    With the experience I not only remake that choice and I intend to keep for years.

    Simulation of analog, the idea is the synthesis engine which allows you to recreate the sounds of my old 800 poly.
    The easy editing, everything is marked on the synth.
    It remains a synth, not looking for realistic piano sounds.
    The sound is not Nordlead, but it is not the same rate.
    The keys are minis, again a pianist will be more inspired to play on a piano.

    UTILIZATION

    I lost the instructions at the end of two days, but I have not bought a new one.
    Edition very simple, but it happened to tinker live.
    more small software is handy for storing your own sounds.

    SOUNDS

    I make my sound, so I'm happy.

    SOUNDS

    I make my sound, so I'm happy.
    Velocity is not necessarily the strong point.
    The sounds are not realistic, it is not a synth player PCM.
    Effects are primitive, no reverb, but a delay.

    OVERALL OPINION

    since I bought it.
    I made a hundred concerts, from -27 degrees á 40 ..
    carted into the hold of the aircraft, car boot etc ... he suffered, but still works like = reliable.

    Yes, I have other synths, but the ease of editing, sound and sound access aus live, that I can not imagine going on tour with another synth.

    More for the price, even if it gets stolen, it is not a great problem.

    The negative point is the mini keys, which I plant notes at least once or twice live.

    I remake that choice without hesitation

    for feature, I let you see on the internet. can be easily found.

    UTILIZATION

    The edition of sounds and effects and rather simple and intuitive and the manual is very clear and explicit. like all synth, it is dificult for someone like me who has never done solfege or taken courses on sound synthesis to make sense of all these parameters available but the manual side and with a little practice it comes quickly.
    I invite ailleur those like me who make music to Instint and oreil to read the tutorial on this site prénsent to understand the low sound synthesis because it allows better conprendre each parameter of the synth.

    SOUNDS

    the strong point of this synth! sounds very good view of the selling price and any easily transportable. Biensur keys can make a toy, but we quickly forget this detail for this focus on what sound comes out.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I did use a few months in a coupled electro set electribe emx and Kaossilator Pro.
    I buy one again when I pourait because it is a very good quality / price ratio.
