WOW. Just wow guys, there are so many different programmable parameters and its so easy to learn. My first few hours with this synth i created some of my own instruments, programmed a rhythm with customized instruments, and made a short song. It was so easy, and lots of fun. I had been looking at getting the Microkorg for a long time, played around with it some at Guitar Center and i just wasnt feeling it, the keys are awkward, it didnt have any good sounds preprogrammed, and it was just confusing to attempt to learn. So i played around with this thing for 10 min and i was convinced i had to have it. If you are thinking about getting a synth and you want that real analog tone and feel, this is for you. Look at the manual online, and you will say "wow... thats really easy..." The only improvements i could ask for it; usb capability, and a vocoder out of the box. Other than that, its amazing.
I've had my Micron for about 1.5 years and still think it's a great synth for the money. It has nice fat sounds and 37 keys in a nice playable form-factor. I can't ask for more on the sound quality bang/$. A few qibbles on the design through: would nice nice if they could have fit the nod-wheel vertically on the left and really nice if it had a USB interface too. All in all, a great little board!
I had been looking for an easy to use synth for some time. Having played guitar for years and having no music reading ability I needed something intuitive to learn and play. The micron fits the bill admirably. Theres every kind of synth sound I've ever heard then some at the twiddle of the control knob. The two sliders and the tone wheel allow heaps of variation on any given patch and are programmable along with the three parameter adjustment knobs which hardly get touched in my world. I mainly use the micron 'rock organ' patch for straight ahead playing and flick through my personal faves for sound effects and washes. You want sound effects? You've got plenty on tap and they're all adjustable. I've hardly scratched the surface of the microns abilities and am learning new stuff every time I spark it up. The only problem I've had is keeping the rest of the band off it! Awesome value for money.....And thanks music123 for being so user friendly...
I love this thing...great sounds, the ability to edit if I want, and easy to work with. Plus, it's so tiny and cool! It also is built a lot better than other products in the price range, as it has nice metal sides that give it a nice, solid feel. Two thumbs up!
I am a guitarist and have been playing for 38 years. I'm too lazy to learn Reason (which I bought then sold) and I thought I would have a better chance at learning some rudimentary keyboard action. I bought the ION, but it seemed really complicated and so I exchanged it for the Micron - Music123 is tops for customer care - The sounds from the Alesis are awesome and the range of sounds is decent; the Korg of the same price sounds great too. (though the Micron seemed a little more versatile) It's a quality piece of equipment.
