The Korg microArranger is a 61 key professional workstation synth. It is one of the more affordable keyboards that I can actually say that I enjoyed working with from start to finish because most synths in this range are pretty dull. The keys on this synth are touch sensitive and have a great feel to them. They made me feel very comfortable while playing melodies and chords.
Using this synth took a little more time than I expected because I had to learn the layout of it. But the manual covers everything so it was not hard it just took a little more time than I thought that it would. It is easy to transfer back and forth from my PC to the Keyboard too via the SD card slot.
This synth has some really good sounds, and for it to be less than 500 bucks you probably will not find a better synth on the market that is built this well while still being portable. The electric pianos and basses are really good. The basses are probably my favorite sounds because they are all full and thick, this is not what I would expect to get out of a “cheaper” board. There are also 33 drum kits and 89 total effects to choose from on this keyboard. The drum kits are ok, nothing that really stood out to me and some of them even sound very similar to the kits that are on my Fantom X6.
This board is great for gigging as well as creating music in a studio because it has a one track at a time sequencer that makes everything pretty simple to work with. This keyboard worked with my DAW so it was easy for me to create music on my PC with this keyboard. I do not think they keyboard is worth the purchase if you already own some “higher end” keyboards, but if you are looking for your first
the configuration is simple compared to the complexity of the other series
