It maintains the essence that has made its predecessor a mainstay in studios and on stages while introducing innovative, contemporary elements that resonate with today's musicians. The microKORG 2 is not just a new instrument; it's a new chapter in synth history.

We've equipped it with five dynamic knobs, each one a gateway to fine-tuning your sound across any musical genre with speed and precision. Whether you're crafting lush pads or searing leads, the expanded bank selection puts every era of music right at your fingertips.

The centrepiece of the microKORG 2 is its stunning 2.8-inch colour display. It's not just about looks; this display makes tweaking your sound a visually immersive experience.

Whether you're a synth veteran or just starting, you'll find its interface welcoming, straightforward, and comprehensive, letting you dive deep into sound creation without getting lost in the technicalities. It's all about keeping the joy in music making – and the microKORG 2 does just that.

Crafting Vocal Perfection: The New Vocal Processor


advanced vocal processing technologyThe original microKORG is renowned for making complex vocal synthesis accessible and fun. Known as the synthesiser with its own mic, it has been the choice for producing unique robotic voices for over two decades – a feat typically reserved for specialized equipment. The true magic of the microKORG has always been in its ability to simplify complex sound engineering.

Taking a leap forward, we've outfitted the microKORG 2 with a new vocal processor that goes well beyond the beloved classic vocoder effects. We're introducing advanced vocal processing technology at your fingertips, including hard-tune pitch correction for creating smooth and polished vocal tracks. Additionally, the new harmonizer feature allows you to layer and pitch-shift your vocals, enriching your music with depth and complexity.

As for effects, the microKORG 2 offers a rich array of options. Layer your vocals with immersive reverb, crisp delay, and a diverse range of sonic textures to fully realise your creative vision. The iconic gooseneck mic, now featuring a stylish metallic neck, is the perfect complement to this powerful vocal processor. Whether you're aiming for rich harmonies or contemporary auto-tuned effects, the microKORG 2’s vocal processor is a versatile tool for unleashing your vocal creativity.

Master Live Performances with Loop Recording and Arpeggiator


a powerful tool for modern musiciansDiscover a new level of musical creativity with microKORG 2’s loop recorder. This feature brings a familiar yet powerful tool for modern musicians into the microKORG world. Ideal for crafting layered backing tracks, the loop recorder allows you to loop segments of music and overlay your own performance, enhancing your creative expression in real-time. While loop recorders are well-known in the music world, their integration into the microKORG 2 opens up new avenues for experimentation and performance, perfectly complementing the synthesiser's robust capabilities.

The loop recorder is designed for simplicity and ease of use, featuring three simple buttons: record, play/stop, and undo/redo. The user interface is streamlined for immediate understanding and use - long-pressing the buttons reveals recording and playback settings, ensuring you're always in control and can focus on your performance.

The microKORG 2 also includes an arpeggiator, perfect for adding rhythmic complexity to your compositions. Activate it with a simple press of one of the eight program number buttons, and watch as it infuses your music with intricate patterns and textures. The combination of the loop recorder and arpeggiator opens up a world of possibilities, allowing you to craft a performance that is truly and uniquely yours.

Explore Sounds Across The Ages

every era's vibeDiscover microKORG 2's rich tapestry of sounds, where you get to play with a whole new range of tones. It's all about choice here – the new program selector is your gateway to genres far and wide. Fancy a bit of retro? Or maybe you want to craft the sound of the future? The microKORG 2 has got you covered with its unique bank selector that tunes into every era's vibe, including classic, modern, and future sounds. Each of these banks is packed with eight genre categories, offering eight preset programs for each, and there’s room for you to save up to 64 of your custom sounds.

The heart of the microKORG 2 beats with the spirit of a virtual analogue synth. This means you get all the richness of traditional analogue sound, without being boxed in by physical hardware. It's like having an infinite soundboard, where you can twist, turn, and tweak sounds across all eras.

And when it comes to patches, we’ve made it both familiar and innovative. The microKORG 2 packs in all the patching capabilities you know and love, but with a digital twist. With virtual patching you can shape your sound and see your patches come to life on the screen, blending the best of analogue feel with digital clarity.

Massive effects The microKORG 2 takes sound manipulation to new heights with an extensive range of effects. We’ve meticulously developed three distinct series of effects to enrich your sonic palette. Dive into nine types of modulation, including dynamic effects that breathe life into your sound, and explore six varieties of delay and reverb to add depth and texture to your music. Each series can be independently toggled on or off, giving you the flexibility to craft the exact sound you're after. Plus, with separate wet/dry ratio adjustments, you have precise control over how much effect is blended into your sound.

The microKORG 2 routes your signal through the effects and onto a sophisticated two-band parametric EQ. With adjustable low and high bands, you have the power to sculpt the final character of your sound with precision. This level of control means you can create and refine sounds entirely on the microKORG 2, without the need for an external mixer or effects pedals. It's an all-in-one powerhouse, ready to bring your musical visions to life.
