Korg microKORG Patches

Korg microKORG presets

Virtual analog synthesizer/vocoder. Two oscillators per voice (4 when layered with timbres). Configurable filter type with its own envelope. Two LFOs, two envelopes, onboard effects, arpeggiator, modular-style virtual patch points. Enjoy these microKORG patches.

Quasi-realistic solo harpsichord sound. Very simplistic setup. May want to slightly adjust Amp EG release depending on speed of music being played.

Cello solo sound, roughly based on Welsh’s synthesizer cookbook recipe, altered to sound a little more real. The sample is Bach’s Cello Suite No 1 BMV 1007. It’s a bit thin when combined with other audio, best for solos.

Bagpipes by EldritchRenaissanceCake on Feb 06, 2020

Hold a 5th in LH, play some celtic melody in the right. There’s a subtle pitch wavering… emphasize with additional pitch bends, e.g. starting up.

Pomp by synthlib on Sep 30, 2016

A sort of classic synth tone with analog waves and filter cutoff controlled by the envelope with plenty of resonance. Chorus and delay round it out.

Slopit! by synthlib on Sep 29, 2016

Using slow LFO pitch modulation to create unstable-sounding oscillators like you might find in old, analog gear. This is similar to the “slop” setting on newer DSI prophets.

Moldy Bread by synthlib on Nov 07, 2015

Gentle and melodic. This simple patch shows off the microkorg’s analog modeling.

microKORG Patch Usage

Select any preset on the microKORG, then send the sysex data from the patches here using a MIDI system exclusive utility for your computer. The patch should load in “audition” mode on the microKORG. Play and tweak as needed, then save the new sound using the “Write” button.

If nothing happens when transmitting the sysex data, try setting the microKORG to receive on a different MIDI channel.
