Korg Microsampler

Sound On Sound
21 December 2009
  • Summary: A portable, keyboard‑based sampler ideal for jotting down musical ideas or for generating home‑made loops and samples for further development. Simplicity is its strength but it also means the responsibility is on you to come up with the goods, which is healthy if a little scary.
  • Pros: Sampling (and resampling) made fun again!, A source of original loops, a musical sketch pad, a portable backing machine... You decide!, Can run on batteries., Microphone supplied., Onboard effects.
  • Cons: Available memory is split into banks rather than contiguous., Minor gripes: the Parameter and Value knobs aren't suited to all tasks and the metronome is rather loud., Sequencer supports only one keyboard part.
