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.

Ice chittering, kind of a shivering shaking xylophone knees kind of thing. Adjust the Arp A tempo and delay time/depth to suit the tempo and openness of your music. Created by modifying Thor’s Toy Piano (Thoracius Appotite).

Echo Chords by synthlib on Oct 14, 2015

While making this patch, it reminded me of the beginning chords from Animal by Miike Snow. But after listening to the original, it doesn’t sound much like it. Still, it could be useful as prominent rhythmic chords.

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.
