You just gotta love the Microkorg, small, lightweight but incredible
powerfull. Playerhaters that hate on this thing are just dumb and
probably never programmed a synthesizer in their lives and just play
the stupid presets, which are by all means really awfull. The sound is
somewhere between the old Korg Poly 800 and a Jupiter 8 (yeah a Jupiter
8 yes basicly because you can arpeggiate the *$#*% out of everything in
all directions). I have a bunch of these lying around they are all
battered and f*cked up from playing live gigs with them over the years,
but somehow they still work.
Its a pretty advanced V.A (virtual analog) synthesizer with the basic
analog waveforms and a dozen or so more exotic waves from the old KORG
DW8000 synthesizer (see the DW6000 article
here), multimode filter, the usual LFO's and envelopes, some cool FX
and a pretty decent vocoder.
