Billed as a performance synthesizer, KingKORG is designed to be used both in the studio and on stage. It uses a new XMT (Xpanded Modeling Technology) engine to provide sound sources across a wide range of tones, from accurate sample-based models to rich, analogue hybrids.
What's most pleasing is how carefully the KingKORG's design has been considered. You can reach for most of the functions you'd want, with 'critical' settings for each section of the synth clearly labelled and readily available. Its synthesizer roots draw influence from a long line of Korg classics (including the MS-20 and MS2000), and its physical modelling echoes pioneering products such as the Z1 and Prophecy.
If you're looking for a synth with a well-designed interface, cracking sounds and scope to create your own, get in front of this instrument and give it a try.4 Stars
