UTILIZATION

Use not super intuitive. A reading of the manual is essential in order to manipulate the minipandora. After that, its use is simple, it is virtually plug and play!

SOUND QUALITY

It sounds really digital! It's REMS what! Now for mobile use, why not.
Conversely, rhythm patterns sounds really good. It replaces a good drummer in his absence during a rehearsals!

OVERALL OPINION

Too low volume output. Its very very digital.

Like many people, I had the error code: MEMORY ERROR. Following discussions with the Hotline and manipulation that did not help, just to say we took into account your problem and did what we could !!! KORG advised me to go to an authorized repairer. As the cost of the repair will be more than the purchase price, this response is not satisfactory and frankly shameful for a large group such as KORG. This is not a design problem of misuse.

In summary, I highly recommend buying this product! This was my first purchase KORG, the VAS was not satisfactory it will last!

Like many of my minipandora user failure "MEMORY ERR". After searching the net, I am far from being an isolated case. Breakdown

After several reminders of KORD support, no answer on this fault and error code?!?

Note that I have very little use. A dozen times and still in normal conditions. He never fell. Aesthetically it like new.

In consequence, for reasons obvious, reliability and a nonexistent KORG support, I do not recommend purchasing this highly minipandora.

characteristics of the previous opinions ...

UTILIZATION

good few submenus to find editions, the wheel is practical manual on the net without doubt, I do not know, not read ...
1 battery which must be 5 or 7 hours of use with the volume just covering the strings ... not bad.

SOUND QUALITY

Do not expect a crazy thing, but we can bosser maquetter and carefree; ... used with bass and guitars, we do what we want with this stuff, from the moment we know that it will not sound like a rack quaffed to 30,000 euros ... it would be rather silly to believe it ...

OVERALL OPINION

used deuis 1 and wheelbarrows, he fell a shitload of times, I lug around in the cover of the stilted, + + + for entry to, which allows bosser his cushy gigs on a recording repet, or better to stick another cascade with his beloved bassist plugger parts batteries recorded by repeating on the phone, an adapter 2 headphones on the end pandora chain and GAS ...

such ---- Pandora1 ------ pandora2 ----- 2casques

I will buy another one for the guys who go by history to play in an apartment like being outdoors ..

I would say it is crap when he falls down, for now, this is not the case ...

juju83_1's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Perfect for playing in the garden?"

Korg Pandora Mini
The world of effects in a small box? yes it is possible ...
Everything is available in this case. Since the flanger overdrive until through the reverb and chorus ... Moreover, it allows to simulate HP Amp and simple manner.

Everything is editable directly on the case, but we can not say that it is very ergonomic. Normal when one is accustomed to sophisticated GUIs today. Nevertheless, a PC interface and Mac is available for download on the manufacturer's website and it is against many ergonomic without touching the current latest standards. In short, it is an interface austere but free ...

The sound is modeled by a processor (rems I think) 100% digital technology ...

The connector is the standard jack 1/4 "mono headphone jack and auxiliary audio standard.

UTILIZATION

Regarding the issue is quite simple but you have already mastered all the effects and the different characteristics of amplifier and speakers modeled to achieve the results we seek.

The manual is clear and sufficient to get by without being guitar tech.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are effective with headphones, everything was on hand to switch to another style two button presses. line output allows you to save or spend on a power amp and at that time you must disable the amp models! (In two clicks ...)
The sound still remain quite cold and synthetic compared to "true sound". Some feedback and whistling as microphones and cables used.
I've used two guitar ibanez stratabound and samick ... no worries.

OVERALL OPINION

it's been almost one year since I have this little magic box. I have not tried any other cons for different brand models (line 6 pod etc ...).

The strong point is that you can play with headphones (no noise) and no electricity ... (In the forest or in the garden?) With a box as big as a player K7 (not even ...)!

In short, a good value for this magic box that can save your neighbors' ears (a fault of yours ...).

I will return the same if I had need again.

Korg Pandora Mini
There are a lot of distos which are stored in patches. As often happens in this type of device, the patches are stuffed with reverb, delay ... You should know lighten everything.
An interesting point is that the Pandora can be powered by USB port, it avoids using batteries, because it eats the pig. In comparison, I have a Zoom G3 much more powerful and versatile that takes hours on batteries.
Please note that the USB port is not used to register. This is not a sound card.

UTILIZATION

Well, you have to read the instructions because there are only a few buttons that manage several parameters. But once read this manual, it is simple to set up. It is a bit long to edit sounds because you have to stuff all the parameters one after the other. You can change the presets and save them, and quickly recall by four dedicated buttons. I do not use a headset with the beast. I have not tested in an amp, but in my opinion, it should not be terrible. Most people forget too quickly that the simulations pedals are made primarily to be plugged directly into a PC or a console. I've never tested with simulations in realistic sounding amp. Or, disable the speaker simulation, which is possible on the Pandora.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound ... Well, it all depends on the intended use. I just wanted to work with on vacation. For that, the Pandora is perfect. Especially since the integrated drum is varied and rhythms are used, not as the BAR Boss I had before with convoluted rhythms to perfection and too rich. We managed to find drinking sounds, but it's much faster and breath sounds are digital, not bad but it is far from the dynamics of the amp, even a transistor. As I said above, I also have a G3 pedal Zomm, which costs not even double. Unrelated in terms of sound, with the G3 was the feeling of playing a real amp is very dynamic and the G3 is a real audio interface it. And it also has drum beats that sound better (ie PCM, not MIDI).

OVERALL OPINION

Most of the time, I use the Pandora as rhythm. For this purpose, even if the sounds are of the afternoon with a bit of reverb, the Pandora is perfect. But for about 100 €, emulations are no longer up to date. Competition is better in terms of versatility and realism. Frankly, if the size is not a decisive criterion, it is better to put a little more money and buy something else (eg G3 :) ) on the other hand, used for fifty euros, well worth stroke, be it for the BAR.

brunod83's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good product but not reliable"

Korg Pandora Mini
It is a true "digital Swiss Army knife." Rendering effects and simulations is bleffant. Connectable via USB to a computer, it can be programmed, ie create your own sounds, but the software is far from intuitive when saving.
Also has an entrance to and a drum machine.
Practice by its size and power: either one AA battery or via USB.

UTILIZATION

Configuration and editing are fairly simple despite its size.
The manual is well written but the breakdown section and lacks a "memory err" which in this case your pandora mini from the trash.

SOUND QUALITY

Used with a Musicman Luke and Gibson Les Paul, the pandora mini has an excellent report on mixer and headphones but much less on spring tube amp where the digital side cold.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it used because I did not know this product. I kept 2 months or 4 hours of use but it was loose. You should know, for information on Anglo-Saxon sites and confirmed by the technical service Korg black box, there is a lot of bad series product. This translates to a display memory err on the screen and there is nothing more to do. If you're lucky enough to have the invoice, it is guaranteed for 2 years, but if like me you're not that valuable evidence, you spent nothing because even if the distributors in France is aware of this problem, is no commercial gesture.
You should also know that this product is already stopped and for good reason!

Anyway good product not to buy used.

brunod83's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Great sound, but does not last - At your own risk"

Korg Pandora Mini
Not bad for a small effect studied guitar, something that can not be said for the programming software via PC

UTILIZATION

Manuel fairly simple but incomplete. Missing in the section down "memory err"

SOUND QUALITY

Made good with a musicman luke and a gibson but it is always digital.

OVERALL OPINION

Two months and a half and it just fell down "memory err". Bought used as I do not guarantee it must go through an approved warehouse "black box" which requires more expensive than the camera. Very expensive for the short little use 6 times avce guitar and a drum machine in ten only). With hindsight and nothing beats the digital Line6.
So to avoid product or your peril

fanfouet66's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Multi-effects nomad"

Korg Pandora Mini
This is a small mutli-effects portable with a headphone jack and a USB port.
Effects are 100% digital, but realistic enough: you can spend an accoustic a big fuzz of a turn of the dial ...
In addition to the effects of 100 factory, we can program 200, either directly from the Korg mini, either from the USB interface to PC / Mac.
There is a built-in tuner and a drum machine.
As sorites there a headphone jack and an output for connecting an MP3 player.
All the details here https://www.thomann.de/fr/korg_pandora_mini_wh.htm

UTILIZATION

Like any multi-effects that respects the child's use but requires some customization neurons and the manual is clear enough to get by.
the first 200 presets are those that we can change. I highly recommend editing via PC / Mac because we have a overview of settings. I met a problem: it is always the same effect but I change the "copy / paste" has saved me! Personally I use a Mac.

The use and setup of the "rhythm" is very simple.

SOUND QUALITY

I use the Korg Mini is directly connected to my ROCKLINE LAG (model 1984) and a headset or via an Orange Crush 15R amp. In both cases the record is very good, I find the sound of my old Korg AX3000G.
Many settings of each effect can get the kind of sound you want. You can have almost all the sounds within your guitar!

OVERALL OPINION

It is a Swiss Army Knife for guitar: multi-effects + tuner + drum. Its only flaw: it does not offer alternate tuning.
I use it for 18 months, in addition to its qualities render effects, its small size is very significant and headphone jack for use "nomadic".

If you want to discover the multi-effects pedals, choose the model that you will not ruin you, having a simplified approach to these gas plants that are multi-effects.
It is ideal for use in apartments.

It's a choice I would definitely do it again.

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

Korg Pandora Mini
All full of effects (see manufacturer site) + specs

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, the drum machine is activated by clicking on the rhythm (just turn the knob to change a single other support to change the parameters of the rhythm (tempo and c)

editions effects ditto a button to the effects, one for the tuner and a knob of buttons + presets

SOUND QUALITY

Cool effects, which take account of the guitar, I play with most often on a traveler guitar but my Gibson les paul does not sound the same (which means adequate rendering), the clean sound are rather faithful to the pickups.
Tearing effects, and funny effects (very original) for the price of less than 100 euros

OVERALL OPINION

Very happy with this small animal, allows a multitude of things, model, range boss during MIDI break holidays and other ..

we even used the beat box during a jam without a drummer! (I add that the drum machine is not overly complicated, it doesn't take two hours to make a basic rhythm). What's more there is a built-in tuner practice.

I compared it to a pocket pod and it does well ! (Since there is the drum machine and more and it is smaller, uses only a battery and a greater impact than a pocket pod ...

Cons: Battery life not huge (a few hours with a 1.5v battery) and the wheel might reveal itself a little smallish over time. some effects sound a little digital ..

Very happy with this purchase!
