Modulator18's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Sounds good"

Korg micro X
Small ultraportable Korg synth. For features: everything is explained in previous posts.
The sound engine is very powerful, the Korg sound quality is there. No discounts on the sounds and effects. Many samples (maybe too much?) As a patch set, you must have time to be, no prog on the fly as some other bikes!
on the other hand, sample banks level everyone is benefiting.
The effects are stunning: good reverb, chorus nice .... All this allows you to enjoy your sound and gives the atmosphere Wanted (cold, hot, aggressive .... everything is possible).
The soft, never used, I program while hard, then no opinion, I would say a co ... laugh!

UTILIZATION

I use the keyboard to program 2 octaves, or to relax. The keyboard is very honorable, on the other hand for the serious game, I midi driver with a master keyboard 5 octaves.
Configuration, as with any synth, an adjustment period is necessary. The manual is well done, and for those familiar with korg, it makes her.
The edition is highly developed, the arpeggio is programmable and this leaves anything to get what you want.
Some find the small screen and messy, me, this did not bother me in the condition or you are sitting comfortably in front. If it sticks in bright light, it is difficult to read.
Many parameter page, but with a logical navigation, so nothing major.

SOUNDS

For sounds, I was not disappointed. it's korg!
For acoustic sounds, pianos are usable, but it's still a synth, so do not expect to hear the hammers strike the strings ....
otherwise, very good bass, beautiful tablecloths, string synth, sfx .... You can find everything in the origins banks but on returning to the engine to make your own sounds, then you fall on your ass!
It all together in combi mode, and then you end up with a synthetic orchestration that will take the scale thanks to the bank effects.
Only downside, I think for filters, korg did much better in the past, they are not up to the machine, but this is only my opinion. It is clear that this does not have a MS20 either ..!

OVERALL OPINION

This machine is very good, I kept it a year and then sold.
I loved this synth, the problem is to have a personal sound, navigating without ending up in the sample bank (several hundred, same for sounds perceived ...). We must quickly learn how to manage its banks, if you get lost in a forest of sounds (683 if I recall correctly).
If one day I have the opportunity, I buy it back one, because the sound is excellent, it is Korg What!

hades le dik-sa's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" not too bad"

Korg micro X
we will not repeat the description in each notice ....
but this synth is not vrément a wonder, though!!
I like the choice of sonoritées synth, very good bass.
but here, on this synth, the biggest flaw is the dynamic!
Brief sonoritées nice but flat! that even the best compressor or change anything ...

UTILIZATION

simple and Downloadable manual on their site.

SOUNDS

everything is flat except for the sounds, it's going!

OVERALL OPINION

for 2 years and frankly I do not do this choice because for the same price, there are better from now on.

Spektah's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Nice but too small so frustrating"

Korg micro X
2 octaves
Many sounds
Editable

UTILIZATION

Simple enough, but there are too many parameters to manage things and through this small screen
Sequenceque multi timbral 16 tracks without too much trouble

SOUNDS

There are all some many other means,
Personal Note I
BASS - bass phat etsquelchy good, you can change filters etc.
Organs - Not terrible, not much choice
Piano - ditto
Lead and FX, is a choice anyway, but i not found much that I like
Ethnic - this is not a category, but I think there are some good sounds in this keyboard interesting
Battery and perceived as quite correct

OVERALL OPINION

Some good sounds, ca still has its uses
but for me the keyboard is just too small,
2 octaves leaves me frustrated, I thought that this was going to interfere at this point before buying (replacement pattern 6 hs)
But I orient myself back to a normal keyboard, at least 61 keys
Compared to the Yamaha Motif, electro sounds are more and more present
But sounds more "acoustic" as flute, vibraphone, piano are much less present, or worse
Orange box is nice!

covax's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg micro X
KORG see site
This is a numeric keypad. You do not buy it if you search the feel poly evolver KB to 2500 €. It sounds logical but in view of certain comments the development is a must!

The keyboard has a good hit, equivalent to an Xboard.
The hull is made of plastic that seems relatively weak. However, the carrying case allows to carry it safely.
The 4 encoders do not look terrible like that but yet the crushing sound is nice. This is not a reference but that's okay.

The big downside is the wheel to the left of the keyboard is really rotten. She tends to jump and if there is something that must first let go, it's her.

UTILIZATION

The handling is fast enough.
The screen is convenient and despite its small size it is pretty damn good and info are displayed.
For editing sounds in depth we prefer the "micro X editor" editor which is a very well done. The interface is good, everything is very well organized and very well thought out. The dump is automatically connecting to PC.

The publisher is truly a success, contrary to what one usually finds. (See Micron X)

SOUNDS

The sounds are great! It inspires and it has already been commented.
The large synthetic possibilities offer a sacred horizon.
A real success.

OVERALL OPINION

A real success!
I hope it will last over time because I'm having a hard time without it!

USE

Super simple to use: just plug and play !! ;-)dropoff Window

Otherwise, there is the "MicroX Editor", small software supplied with the synth, which installs itself (PC or Mac) and allows you to manage and edit sounds (including through Cubase or Logic, in which the software appears as a VST).

The software remade the inventory of the synth at each branch, so it takes into account both your characters sound. and reminds the sequencer sounds for your compo.

Although convenient, this!

It's good big sound Korg as we like, in a small keyboard (2 octaves, normal keys).
What more? </div>



NOTICE GLOBAL

The only downside for me is that two octaves, it is for transportation, but when the synth rest at home throughout the year, we would have liked microX make a few more inches in width, and we offers 3 octaves. Anyway, the "Octave" button is placed under the left hand, and held notes remain when octave changes, then we cope ...

So, personally, I love this little synth;-)

The engine sound is that of the triton, for against the overall sound is better than the latter, convertos sound better.

Korg micro X
Or other opinion, same characteristics.

UTILIZATION

I was attracted to this synth mainly for its sound bank for the 25 keys is not great even though it is very easy to control octave to octave, but when we always tastes the keys 61 25 cest shorts but hey it was designed for portable use so cest normal. The manual is very well but it has served me anything, I'm not a pro because I use hardware synths as VST plugins, but usually it is very intuitive to use.
It comes with the editor of sounds and combis that works as a vst plugin EST and also very practical. So be it software or hardware mode I did not meet with the Soucila korg micro x. The only gripe cest construction of the synth, cest below other Korg products, the AC is a little plastic like some other users are saying to plug the power supply does not seem very strong, but for me all this is not very serious because I used men as expander synt therefore does not move from my office so it will last for many years.
The Micro X is only used me as a sound module.

SOUNDS

If you are hip hop, rnb, ragga and electro this synth is for you.
I love this synth sounds that sound very hot and very rich. Leads, synths are great strengths, jaime also violins and voices, combined are not bad either. In short, in a word for jaime is synthe genres described earlier. I chose this synth because I wanted to have something like the triton but cheaper, jai bought my micro xa E 350 second hand but very good condition and I'm not disappointed, take up very little space and has the sounds and microKORG Triton. If you are more interested to own a sound bank in addition to what you have or to begin this synth is perfect. If you want to buy the triton only for sound quality but not for other more general use does not spend 1000 euros, instead buy this little monster is very affordable. If you are also a fan of software like Reason utlisation me after this synthe you will see that the quality of sound is far better than many bank or Reason refills.

OVERALL OPINION

The User for 2 days I've traveled and all the sounds for hours and hours.
Chaudeur seduced by the sounds.
OF USE very simple even for a beginner.
Save for you if you recherchier triton sounds without the need for all options newt.
For me I use it as xpandeur men. I pilot my keyboard with 61 keys masters.
My set up cest:
61 key master keyboard connected to my yamaha motif rack es, the korg micro x is linked to the rack by the MIDI Through port driver so I both at once.
If you have the same vision of electronic music as I say, mix the CSTA program Reason with Cubase with VSTS also use parallere expanders to use only sound banks (because all are on record and sequencer Cubase) then this synthe is for you.
The only slight negative point cest quil is a little less solid than the Korg synthesizers of dhabitude cest but not death at all if you are not sure Soucila and if you carry in the briefcase orange cest provided perfect.
Recommended for any beginner or advanced.
