Korg Microkorg Vs Korg Microkorg S

Post by 80snostalgia » Fri Jan 22, 2021 2:25 pm

On YouTube vids there's been alot of demonstrations of what the original Korg microKORG can do, can the S version do the same?
Love the idea of the speakers, very powerful.
One thing I didn't like are the 'Dance sequence' sounds. Does the original have the same?
Also when it came to one of my favourite type of noise, square waves, the original sounded clean, the S sounded good until modulation wheel, where as Original microKORG modulation was nice as expected.
What is going on? I'm sure there are some changes.
What do you think?

The changes consist of the color of the plastic changing.

I can't believe they didn't add a USB interface to the S since it costs an extra $100.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
