      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

MicroKorg vs. Korg R3

13 posts in this topic

Anybody know about synths? I've been eyeing the MicroKorg for a while. Thought it'd be a nice companion to my SP-404. Then I saw Korg had released the R3 with a rebate that puts it around the same price as a new Micro. But the Micro also goes for less on Ebay...

Any advice? Should I go for the improved R3? Should I not get a Korg at all? Where's the best place to buy?

Should I rob a bank and buy a Moog Little Phatty? ;)

You can definitely go for a Microkorg, that is some good piece of equipment.

But try it first so you know what you'll buy and if it is what you really want...

And, of course, if you can afford a Little Phatty, don't hesitate. It's some serious gear.

Probably the next one I'll get.

I don't know abou the R3, but if you can get a cheap Microkorg, go for it...

Sorry for the place to buy, i would give advices concerning Europe, but the prices (including the change $/€) and the shippings won't make it interesting for you I guess...

I just picked up a microKorg yesterday. Has anyone ever connected it to the MPC 2000XL (midi)? And how did you record it?
