Korg microSampler First Look

This is an unboxing and overview of the new Korg microSampler.

Sonic State’s Nick Batt does the dirty work of checking out Korg’s new sampling keyboard.

The Korg microSampler offers sixteen-voice polyphony, reverse playback, editing operations such as Normalize and Truncate, and a Time Stretch feature that lets you change the tempo without affecting the pitch. Selectable sample rates of 48 kHz, 24 kHz, 12 kHz, and down to 6 kHz let you sample at rates beyond CD clarity or add in that Lo-Fi vintage vibe.

  1. I have successfully mapped my microKorgXL to my novation SL via MIDI, I imagine this is no different. So I get the best of both worlds – a small battery powered travel synth, and a full 61 key studio synth. I'm just struggling with the question, "do I need this sort of sampler when I have Ableton Live on my laptop?"
