The microKorg-S is the refreshed MicroKorg from 2002 with a new look, more presets space, a favorites function, and built in speakers. Just like the microKORG it gloats the same double oscillator DSP combination motor found in Korg's widely praised MS2000 and offers a more extensive determination of waveforms than some other displayed synth. Also, 64 elite DWGS waveforms from Korg's great DW-8000 empowers you to repeat an expansive gathering of imitative sounds that are customarily troublesome to duplicate on a simple synthesizer with the microKorg.

The MicroKorg-S is built for the musician who is always on the go, the mini-keyboard boasts 37 velocity sensitive keys, MIDI in/out and thru and can run from it's power supply or 6 AA batteries. Everything is upfront with the MicroKorg which is what you want if you are throwing down a live PA.

Built tough to withstand most travelling arts the MicroKorg weighs in just under 2.5 KG which makes its lightweight and easy to drag out on any night. Just to ramble off some of its offerings its a 4 voices synth with 2 Oscillator + Noise Generator, the Multi Mode Filter (-24dB/oct LPF, -12dB/oct LPF/BPF/HPF), EG x2, LFO x2, o Virtual Patch x4. You guessed it a builtin Vocoder to get things really grooving. Over 120 programs with great modulation effects (3 types), Delay (3 types), and a 2-band Equalizer.

Looking for a fun synth that pretty much does the lot? It's new functions offer things that were missed on the 2002 MicroKorg so its definitely worth checking the MicroKorg-S out.
