How To Turn A Korg MicroKorg Into A Compact Synth Module

Reader Stéphane Caviglioli let us know about this modified Korg microKorg synthesizer.

“Mine had two dead keys after 15 years of loyal service, I decided to cut it!” notes Caviglioli.

Caviglioli documents the conversion at the Cavisynth site, noting that it’s not a complicated mod:

  • Disassemble the synthesizer
  • Unplug and remove the keyboard, pitch and modulation
  • Cut to the cutter at the edge of the front edge of both sides
  • Cut the bottom cover to raz the screw holes
  • Reassemble everything
  • Cut a plate for the front and fix it with small recovery screws
  • The most complicated step is to replace the mod and pitch wheels with fixed resistors

  1. I love this. I looked into doing this with a Korg Karma but instead found an M3 module. But it looked pretty doable.
