Korg has introduced the microKORG S, a synthesizer/vocoder instrument that continues to build on the success of the original, featuring built-in-speakers, more memory, new sounds, and a new design.

Korg microKORG S vocoder

With a serious sound, ubiquitous design, and superior build quality, the microKORG analog modeling synthesizer became an instant world standard when it was released in 2002. Since then, the microKORG has found its way into the hands of musicians far and wide, and now, receives an update to ensure it will remain one of the world’s most beloved synthesizers for years to come.

The new microKORG S features a built-in 2+1 speaker system with power that far exceeds its size. Its body sports an elegant white motif, and features new presets that represent the sounds of a new generation. Beneath the microKORG S’s sophisticated exterior hides a sound engine both brutal in strength and universal in application.

The microKORG-S will be available in September 2016, priced at $499.99 USD.
