The KingKORG is a fully-fledged analog modeling synthesizer which carries on the design philosophy of classic Korg analog synthesizers such as the MS-20 and the Mono/Poly.
Delivering the unique characteristics of a dedicated synthesizer, this exciting new instrument delivers all the fun of transforming the sound by tweaking an impressive array of knobs.
While technologically impressive, KingKORG is approachable even to players who are new to synthesizers.
A 3-oscillator x 2-timbre design allows you to generate thick and rich sounds. The newly-developed XMT (Xpanded Modeling Technology) modeling sound engine is Korg technology, created in order to produce a wide variety of sounds whilse keeping operation simple.
KingKORG provides pre-set algorithms that contain combinations of various types and number of oscillators, letting you easily and quickly sculpt stage-ready sounds. The wide range of oscillator algorithms includes the choices you'd expect from an analog synth - sawtooth wave, square wave and noise - in addition to numerous other algorithms, giving you plenty of choices for creating highly personal sounds.
The filter section is crucial to a synthesizer's character. A diverse variety of filters is a unique advantage of analog modeling, and KingKORG's filters add unparalleled flexibility. In addition to a variety of essential analog modeling filter types, you get faithful models of filters that reproduce the analog monophonic synths used for lead and bass in the '70s, the polyphonic synths used in new wave music of the '80s, and the filters of Korg's classic MS-20 analog synth.
KingKORG features three master effects sections, each giving you a choice of six effect types, PRE FX distortion and amp simulator, MOD FX with classics like phaser, chorus and tremolo and REV/DELAY, with ambience effects such as hall reverd and modulation delay.
Korg provides a full analog vacuum tube driver circuit as a mastering effect. Use it to add warm fullness, a powerful overdrive, or anything in between.
The built-in vocoder uses audio from the on-board mic input to modify the sound, creating an effect as though the synthesizer were talking. The Formant Shift function dramatically modifies the tonal character, as well as Formant Hold, which allows you to 'freeze' a vowel sound and play it back using the keys. Thanks to the KingKORGS's dual-timbre architecture, you can even combine the vocoder with another timbre, either as a complementing sound or a modulation source.
An intuitive Virtual Patch system allows you to modulate a parameter for even greater sound-shaping possibilities. Choose from six arpeggio types and specify the duration, interval and on/off status of each step.
Focus on the controls you need with the newly designed panel layout. Dedicated dials for each of the three master effects make it easy to try different combinations and hear how they modify the sound. Visibility is excellent even on a dimly-lit stage with the KingKORG's self-luminous EL display.
Five octaves of velocity-sensitive keys can be adjusted to mimic the depth of classic instruments. The backlit X/Y joystick is at the ready to control your most important live performance tweaks.
A Favourites Function, 200 built-in preset programs, CV/GATE OUT jack and support for librarian software also feature on the KingKORG, giving you the behind-the-scenes essentials for a great performance.
The KingKORG shines on stage, not only with its great sound, but also literally with a gorgeous champagne gold finish, befitting its royal name - KingKORG.
