The microkorg is great for either beginners or professionals.

It features 37 keys and 127 programs that are user-rewritable, giving you a lot of variation. These sounds range from electric pianso, basses , guitars, bells, synth pads etc.

The different sound sections include - Trance, Techno/House, Electronica, D'n'B/Breaks, HipHop/Vintage, Retro, S.E Hit, Vocoder.

All of these sounds are great to the beginne to play with, but when you start to actually use this with a band is when it becomes hard to get the sound you actually want. It is possible but takes a lot of tweaking.

The keys on this thing are quite small compared to other synths so if you have 'big' fingers it can be difficult to play at times!

For the price this synth is very cheap, especially as it has a built in vocoder. But like the most of the sounds this is something you are only going to use once or twice!

If you know your stuff you can get a lot from this synth, but it will take you a while to get the hang of it. Flicking through the manual kind of helps you to do this but it can still be tricky to ge the hang of it.

I would recommenr this synth as it is capable of a lot, I don't know why it has such low ratings form other users!

Like any instrument, NEVER base your buying decision on just a review. Make sure you always try the instrument at your local mucis store or if a friend has it then play it. Nothing worse than investing in something and a week later realising it doesn't do what you want, so do your research!
