    Great Value on a Fantastic Synth


    I've owned this for years, and believe it's the finest synth available in this price range. Unfortunately, the presets are lame, so you may not be aware of its real power just by testing it. It has the same sound engine as the larger/more expensive Korg MS2000, so you can download ALL MS2000 sounds to play on the MicroKorg. Visit Korg's German website and download the software editor. That's where the real power is. You can also use this as a MIDI controller, and it has MIDI IN/OUT/THRU ports, so you can control it from a larger keyboard if you prefer. I personally think the style is gorgeous, and I prefer the mini-keys (many people don't). Keep in mind, the mini-keys don't feel like piano keys. They feel "spongy", instead. But it's a synthesizer, not a piano. It gets decent enough time from a set of batteries, so I often take it and a laptop out into the sunshine to compose music. I'd recommend buying a case to protect the beautiful retro-styled body. The only "bad" thing about it is the silly microphone, which permanently gets twisted like a pipe-cleaner the first time you use it. It's best to use a better microphone anyway. The vocoder isn't great, but it's adequate. Consider the vocoder a bonus rather than a selling point, because the real value here is the marvelous SOUND this thing generates and the ability to edit sounds to get just what you're looking for. It sounds nothing like the Alesis Micron (another great mini-synth). I can't recommend the MicroKorg highly enough!

    Very Fun and Interesting Toy Around With


    I've yet to own this product yet but I have used it in store and it caught my attention well. An employee showed me a few tricks and then I was off, on my way enjoying about 30 minutes just wandering through different sounds and experimenting. Looking forward to owning one soon. I give it 5 stars very interesting, fun, and different experience from other synths.
