The Korg microSampler provides a fast and easy way to integrate creative audio sampling into any musical scenario. The customised backlit LCD makes the microSampler ease of use for both music beginners and professional musicians. The mini size full fledge keyboard instrument’s five sampling modes have re-sampling in every mode. The Auto Next sampling automatically creates ready-to-use time-sliced samples during recording. While the Key Gate sampling enables users to grab multiple samples of varying lengths from incoming audio by a simple touch on the desired key, all in real-time. The entire output can be routed through the effect, played by the pattern sequencer and re-sampled as a single sound. The time stretch feature enable users to change the tempo without affecting the pitch. All editing tools are included like, Normalize, Truncate, Start and End trim, with selectable sample rates that range from beyond CD clarity down through a Lo-Fi vintage vibe.
The Korg microSampler also provides tons of preset sounds for instant music-making. The twenty-one effects borrowed from Korg’s KAOSS PAD series, can be applied to any sound while re-sampling, allowing the effects to be used over and over again for more sonic expression. The front panel provides a cradle for holding MP3 or audio player. The portable keyboard can runs on batteries (6 AAA Alkaline batteries for approximately 4 hours) and weight merely 4.19 lbs. The entire sampling keyboard has been designed for comfort, speed and playability.
