Powerful Oscillators
The KingKorg’s 3-oscillator x 2-timbre design allows you to generate thick and rich sounds. The XMT (Xpanded Modeling Technology) sound engine was created by Korg to produce a broad range of sonic variations while keeping operation simple. Unlike conventional synths, the Korg KingKORG provides pre-set algorithms that contain combinations of various types and numbers of oscillators, letting you easily and quickly sculpt stage-ready sounds.

The wide range of oscillator algorithms includes the choices you’d expect from an analog synthesizer–sawtooth wave, square wave, and noise–in addition to numerous PCM/DWGS algorithms, giving you plenty of scope choices for creating highly personal sounds.

Modeling Filters
Korg paid extreme attention to the filter section when designing KingKorg. A diverse variety of filters is a unique advantage of analog modeling, and KingKORG’s filters add unparalleled flexibility. In addition to a variety of essential analog modeling filter types, you get faithful models of filters that reproduce the analog monophonic synths used for lead and bass in the '70s, the polyphonic synths used in new wave music of the '80s, and the filters of Korg's classic MS-20. These filters can also be made to self-oscillate by raising the resonance setting– a unique capability of analog synths.

Three Master Effects
The KingKorg synth keyboard provides three master effect sections, each giving you a choice of 6 effect types: PRE FX, with types such as distortion and amp simulator; MOD FX, with classic effects like phaser, chorus, and tremolo; and REV/DELAY, with ambience effects such as hall reverb and modulation delay. Each effect processor has a dedicated front panel dial that selects the effect type. To choose the ideal effect type, simply turn the dial to hear the result, and use the FX control knobs to adjust the effect.

Vacuum tube driver circuit adds rich overtones and powerful distortion
The Korg KingKORG also provides a full-analog vacuum tube driver circuit as a mastering effect. You can use it to add warm fullness, a powerful overdrive, or anything in between.

Vocoder function
The built-in vocoder uses audio from the onboard mic input to modify the sound, creating an effect as though the synthesizer were talking. The vocoder features Formant Shift to dramatically modify the tonal character, as well as Formant Hold, which allows you to freeze a vowel sound and play it back using the keys. Thanks to the KingKorg’s dual-timbre architecture, you can even combine the vocoder with another timbre, either as a complementing sound or a modulation source.

Virtual patch function
On many classic synthesizers, the signal flow could be reconfigured using patch cables to physically connect one element to another. Korg KingKorg reproduces this function with an intuitive Virtual Patch system. With six Virtual Patch assignments per timbre, control signals such as EG, LFO, or joystick movement can be virtually connected to sound parameters such as pitch or cutoff, allowing you to modulate a parameter for even greater sound-shaping possibilities.

Step arpeggiator function
The step arpeggiator automatically generates an arpeggiated phrase (broken chord) according to the chord you hold on the keyboard. You can choose from six arpeggio types, and specify the duration, interval, and on/off status of each step to enjoy a wide variety of performance possibilities.

Panel layout allows intuitive operation
The panel is organized into blocks that let you focus on the controls you need while editing. While reflecting the concept of an analog synthesizer's signal flow, KingKORG's front panel takes full advantage of today's technology. For example, the oscillator section has its own dedicated display that shows the name of the currently selected algorithm. You can turn the dial located beside this display to see descriptive names, and push the dial to jump to the beginning of categories such as ANALOG or DWGS.

The control knobs are assigned to the most effective and important parameters for each oscillator, letting you enjoy the unique feature of an analog synthesizer, turning the knobs to transform the sound. There are also dedicated dials for each of the three master effects, making it easy to try out different effects and hear how they modify the sound. Since a self-luminous organic EL display is used, visibility is excellent even on a dimly lit stage.

61 dynamic, full-size keys, plus Korg’s X/Y Joystick
KingKorg synth features five octaves of velocity-sensitive keys, whose response can even be adjusted (Normal, Shallow, or Deep) to mimic that of classic instruments. Below the dedicated octave shift buttons, you’ll find a backlit X/Y joystick, ready to control your most important live performance tweaks. Play through some of the preset sounds, and you’ll notice that the joystick is already set up for useful and inspiring modulation.

Favorites function for convenience in live performance
The Favorites function lets you recall frequently-used programs at a single touch. You can assign a total of 40 programs to the eight category favorite buttons for easy recall.

200 built-in preset programs
KingKorg provides a diverse selection of 200 stage-ready preset programs organized into eight categories such as Synth, Lead, and Bass. There's a great selection of the staple sounds you need for live performance, including numerous PCM sounds for piano, electric piano, organ, and clavinet. Thanks to KingKorg’s ability to emulate filters from classic synths, you’ll find familiar and authentic sounds that are perfect for playing your favorite classic and modern songs, along with new and inspiring sounds to broaden your horizons. There's also a user area for you to store 100 of your own sounds.

The CV/GATE OUT jack lets you use an analog signal to control a Korg monotribe or MS-20. A dedicated cable for the monotribe is included, allowing you to use the keyboard of KingKORG to play the monotribe.

Support for librarian software that lets you manage programs
You can manage programs on your computer simply by connecting KingKorg to your computer via a USB cable and using the librarian software. The librarian software can be downloaded at no charge from the Korg website or from the website of your local Korg distributor.

What is your opinion of this product?
This synth is becoming the workhorse of my production setup and I can’t wait to see where it can take me. I love its vacuum tube/valve’s light distortion and the intuitive layout makes it easy to start making a new patch despite the menu diving to make more complex changes.

King Korg...10 times as big as a man...
What is your opinion of this product?
I orginally had a Korg Krome.. Was like dealing with a computer..Way too difficult to use for live shows. Had nowhere to link your favorites for quick recall. I then bought the Korg Kross. Was a little cheesey but worked quite well... I then bought the Korg Kingkorg thinking it would be a step above the Korg Kross. Yet the Kingkorg is mostly just for synth. It lacks SD card input, sequencing and drum beats.. it actually is a little shy on available patches from the factory.. 200. It is not for a novice. A bit complex in knowing how to use different filters to make certain sounds.. But in combination with the Korg Kross it might be a bit of help.. yet there is a redundancy in having both. It actually has a good sound though. Make sure you have a reg keyboard with some synth on it also... Don't just rely on the kingkorg for a full night out alone.

Unique product with great tones for the old school musician
What is your opinion of this product?
I have wanted a Korg synthesizer for a really long time. I am an older musician that doesn't get into the latest tech equipment. I just want great classic tones to work with. I am impressed with the way the tube drive really adds some mojo to your performance.This keyboard is great in the studio or out performing. Korg put a lot of thought into this product. I gave it four stars because I believe in a while you will need to replace the tube but it is still a good board IMO.Thanks to AMS payment plans it is a good buy. I love it !

Great Layout
What is your opinion of this product?
I play guitar. I purchased my KingKORG for tracking after watching several YouTube videos. It's very HI-FI and easy to adjust. Someone put alot of thought into this. The tube overdrive has a nice growl. The bass and treble controls mean business. Great programs, chorus, echo, reverb. I get comments on the gold panel.
