Great little sampler for a bargain price!!!

  • Summary: Besides DJing I do music production (commercial ala "Guetta" and "Swedish House Mafia"), now with Reason 6! Honestly, I did not really "need" it a sampler, but for this price point I just wanted to give it a try to "play around"... and it turned out to be - EASY I hate reading manuals, but 1) this device is very easy structured 2) it has a very thin yet descriptive manual 3) there are plenty of Youtube videos for getting up to speed... - POWERFUL 1.

Works as advertised...

  • Summary: This is my first hardware sampler and so I am still learning the ropes. Right now I just cut up samples on my laptop and load them on this thing via the software. I just wanted something to trigger samples live - this works perfect for that. I was hoping there would be a usable workstation element to it as well, but it falls short there (at least for how I put together tracks). For what I paid for this unit, though, I have no complaints.

" Small, but effective, pocket sampler "

  • Excerpt: It's pretty weird of Korg to create such a device in these times when everything is done with a computer. In the end, this is what anyone may be wondering with this Microsampler ─ the umpteenth version of the very lucrative Micro series of the Japanese brand.

" Love the knobs! "

  • Excerpt: This is a piece of hardware i am glad to add to my studio setup. There are many reviews out there that don't explain this instrument with much detail or knowledge, i was scared to purchase this. After i did purchase it and played around with it i will never regret getting this. To me it feels like a instrument that will be a legendary one. The reason i think this is so great is it really is like a swiss army knife of samplers.

  • Excerpt: See manufacturer's website Connections are all right: 2 Jack outputs, 2 audio Inputs, USB, MIDI The memory is indeed short, but you learn to make short loops over time and it's not bad.

" Not a bad concept "

  • Excerpt: ok ok UTILIZATION SOUNDS OVERALL OPINION ok I find the concept interesting, we regret the internal memory a bit short, besides that here is a very small sample pleasant to use, very simple and intuitive enough to call or put an idea into a flat time at all, nice portability with batteries that last about 3hrs 30 in heavy use, a nice face and a lightness hallucinatory effects are good quality.

This curate's egg - on the whole - makes a decent omelette

  • Summary: This is truly is the Swiss army knife of sampling. Firstly it does sound VERY good in use - so full marks are awarded for that. It has plenty of on-board functions that are generally well executed - but these sometimes prove limited in their functionality. Given the price point and its place in their range I am sure KORG expect you to augment this with their other hardware. As an example - effects are derived from the Kaoss pad and sound great.

" Petit sampleur de poche mais efficace. "

revega, Audiofanzine
23 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Bien étrange les idées chez Korg en ces temps du 'tout à l'ordi' de concevoir un engin pareil. Car au final c'est ce que chacun peut légitimement se demander avec ce Microsampler, énième rejeton de la fratrie des lucratifs Micro des Nippons KORG.

  • Excerpt: Voir le site du constructeur Connectique correcte: 2 sorties Jack, 2 audio In, USB, MIDI Mémoire effectivement un peu short mais avec le temps on s'eduque à ne faire que des boucles courtes et c'est pas plus mal

" pas mal comme concept "

Menestrel de malheur, Audiofanzine
18 February 2011
  • Excerpt: ok UTILISATION ok SONORITÉS ok AVIS GLOBAL Je trouve le concept interessant, cependant on regrettera la memoire interne un peu short, a part ça voila un petit sampler fort agréable a utiliser, trés simple et intuitif, de quoi composer ou mettre a plat une idée en deux temps trois mouvements, portabilité sympa avec les piles qui durent environ 3h 30 en utilisation intensive, une bonne bouille et une légereté hallucinante, les effets sont de qualité variable.
