Korg MicroKorg Description

Fun, low cost, retro-styled Analog Modeling synthesizer & competent midi controller, appeared in mid-2002, based on the capable though more complicated & expensive Korg MS2000B (replaced by the MicroKorg XL and Korg R3 (based on the newer Korg RADIAS). Great analogue sounds for dance tracks. Good DJ tool. Can work on batteries. A classic.
