Korg MicroX Description

This diminuative but powerful synthesizer could be mistaken as a replacement for the very successful MicroKorg, but rather than a shrunken analogue synth, it is more a computer musicians mobile tool. It has 1100 sounds based on the H1 synthesis system from the Triton, including synths, dance, and what the Korg marketing blurb describes as 'unique ethnic timbres', powerful arpeggiators, USB connectivity, plugin editor for DAWs & standalone editor for PC & MAC. Usefully comes with a moulded case.

Size: 606 (W) x 226 (D) x 80 (H) mm; weight: 2.4 kg
