Modelling is not just for guitars

Pete-plays-guitar, 12.04.2017
I was waiting in anticipation for the black version of the KingKorg. After hearing the sound banks on many videos on the internet I was sold on the keyboard.

If you are looking for the fat gorgeous pads of the 80s then this is the keyboard for you. Many waveforms to choose from and these can be infinitely edited to produce and unbelievable range of sounds. It models perfect the controls of the analogue synths and combined together with the broad range of effects there are very few analogue sounds which this synth cannot produce.

Sound wise I cannot fault it. At first I was wanting the NordA1 but after trying the two out in the shop on an A/B test, in my opinion the Korg comes out far ahead for it's range and quality of sounds available.

When Korg first released this synth in gold it was just too 'bling' for me (and obviously for many people), but in black it slots into my synth rack without shouting 'look at me'.

Also weighing next to nothing, it is easily transportable. For geekiness alone, I would have bought it for the startup sequence of lights sweeping across the the whole keyboard.

My only gripe, but not enough to lose and stars (as I have it plugged into the computer) is only 200 memory locations for storing patches, which is a little on the pokey side.

I cannot recommend this keyboard more to anyone looking for that elusive analogue keyboard sound from their teens (if they are going through a mid-life crisis like me).

Highly recommended

Top Synthesizer for Live Performance and Producing

Korg Liebhaber, 05.08.2017
The Korg King Korg is a very clear and easy-to-use synthesizer. With the various effect sections and the sound category buttons (such as synth, lead, bass, strings, etc.) it makes the synth very easy to use. There are 200 presets, from which you can quickly find a desired sound and let off steam.
The synth and pad sounds are excellent and made me very impressed. It is also practical that pitch and modulation can be controlled in one with the joystick and this makes the play really fun. In addition, there is the vacuum tube and the unison effect to produce an even fatter sound. Not to forget the XLR microphone connection to use the Vocoder. The King Korg has so a lot to offer and there is little what it lacks in my opinion.
What excites me not so much, are the piano sounds. These are also more likely to combine with strings / pad to produce a certain sound. The King Korg is not just a stage piano but a synthesizer. As a second keyboard for a live performance, the King Korg is so wonderful.

On the whole, I can highly recommend the synthesizer, especially for producing, but also as a performance synthesizer. He also looks great with his black color and the red lights!
