      1. Korg makes plenty of analogue synths already: if you changed the microkorg that much, it wouldn’t be a microkorg anymore (just like the XL version, which was basically a rompler though). Also, those are not the presets, but the editable parameters.

        Keep in mind that the micro is just an MS2000 packed tight, with a more limited arpeggiator. As it’s become a classic, you either love it or hate it. And the more features you add, the costlier it gets: the microkorg S, for a couple speakers and more memory locations, will cost you almost 100€ more than the standard version; if Korg were to add a screen and other stuff, its price would rise even more (something between 500 an 600) and people then would just keep buying the classic model.

  1. The rainbow panel is rockin’. I also want one that’s nearly-neon blue. I have a Kebu-sized rig of MicroKorgs, so I’ll take the lot.

  2. Not meaning to hate, but all of these look like they were made by someone without even a basic understanding of color, typography and graphic design. If you make an overlay, at least pick some matching colors and improve on the looks of the original design instead of downgrading it.
