  • Any good alternatives to the MicroKorg?

    I play bass in my current band, and we are looking to add a synth for some simple basslines on a few of our songs. The MicroKorg caught my eye because of the price, the look, and the sound. 

    I am just curious as to if there are any alternatives out there before I decide to buy.

    Anyone have any recommendations?


    Please take a moment to check out my podcast, Two Average Dicks. Thank you.

    Microkorg XL obvious.  Since you aren't adverse to mini keys the new Arturia MIcrobrute might be worth a look.

      The MicroBrute looks pretty awesome, however, it doesn't seem to save presets? I'd need a couple different sounds on the fly. Fat bass, pad, etc.

    It includes cutout sheets that lay over the controls so you can mark the settings for different sounds. Better than drawing a bunch of little knobs lol.. It's a good synth but you might want more sounds from your main synth. But if you don't need too much variety, like pads and stuff, virtual type synths, etc then it will be fine. It's basic but you can get a wide range of sounds out of it.
