About Korg Microkorg

The Korg MicroKorg is now approaching legendary status after being in production for over 15 years. An essential piece of equipment that most electronic musicians have owned at some point, the MicroKorg has become one of the best selling synthesizers of all time. The key behind the MicroKorg's success is the analogue modelling technology. Used to realistically recreate the sound of classic analog synthesizers, these sounds have been packed into a compact and fun synthesizer package which features mini keys. Users of the MicroKorg are then able to tweak, save and create their own sounds via an easy to understand interface.

The original MicroKorg is still in production while many variations including the MicroKorg S and XL+ are also available. These versions each bring their own unique features to the MicroKorg format. The MicroKorg's portability and simplicity make it the perfect first synth. That said, the Microkorg is also a serious piece of hardware and is much-loved by professional musicians. Some famous users of the MicroKorg include: The Prodigy, LCD Soundsystem, Devo, Jean-Michel Jarre, Duran Duran, The Pet Shop Boys, Calvin Harris, Enter Shikari, The Killers and Ariana Grande.
