  • Page 16: Vocoder Programs, Playing A Vocoder Program, Modifying The Sound

    Vocoder programs 1. Playing a vocoder program Here's how to connect the included mic and play a vocoder program. A vocoder applies the spectral character of an externally-input voice (the "modula- tor") to an oscillator or other sound (the "carrier"), and outputs the result. In the most popular use of a vocoder, you can speak or sing into a mic and play chords on the keyboard, to create the impression that an instrument is speaking or singing.

  • Page 17: Arpeggiator, Using The Arpeggiator

    Arpeggiator Using the arpeggiator The arpeggiator is a function that automatically arpeggiates the notes of a chord you play; i.e., sounds the notes one after the other. The microKORG's arpeggiator provides six types of arpeggio pattern, and lets you adjust the duration (gate time) of the notes that are sounded.

  • Page 18: Editing, Basic Editing, Basic Editing Procedure

    Editing Basic editing procedure All of the editable parameters are organized into "sections". Each section contains up to five parameters, which are controlled using the edit control knobs 1 – 5. The two knobs labelled EDIT SELECT 1 and EDIT SELECT 2 are used to select a section.

  • Page 19

    Basic editing If you select another program or turn the power off before you write, your edits will be lost. If the parameter value does not change when you turn knobs 1–5 When you use EDIT SELECT 1 or EDIT SELECT 2 to select a section and turn knobs 1–5 to edit the parameter values, the value in the display will sometimes continue blinking, and the parameter value will not change.

  • Page 20: Editing Each Timbre

    Basic editing Editing each timbre Synth programs can have up to two timbres. A timbre consists of the parameters of EDIT SELECT 1 VOICE (except for "SYNTH/VOCODER" and "SINGLE/LAYER") through LFO2 sections, and the parameters of EDIT SELECT 2 PATCH 1–4 sections. The VOICE section parameters "SYNTH/VOCODER"...

  • Page 21: Editing A Synth Program, The Structure Of A Synth Program, Overview

    Editing a synth program Overview The three attributes of sound: pitch, tone, and volume Sound has three basic attributes; pitch, tone, and volume. To control these attributes, the microKORG analog modeling synthesizer provides "oscillator," "filter," and "amp (amplifier)" sections, just as on the analog synthesiz- ers of the past.

  • Page 22: Voice — Synth/vocoder

    1. VOICE These settings determine the basic character of the program, and how it will sound. "SYNTH/VOCODER" (knob 1) specifies whether the program will be a synth program or a vocoder program. If you want this to be a synth program, select Synthesizer ( program.

  • Page 23: Pitch — Synth/vocoder

    2. PITCH These settings specify the pitch of the oscillator. Use "TRANSPOSE" (knob 1) and "TUNE" (knob 2) to set the desired pitch. These settings are shared by oscillators 1 and 2. In this section you can also set the portamento time, and specify how the PITCH and MOD wheels will affect the pitch. TRANSPOSE [-24...24] TUNE...

  • Page 24

    3. OSC1 The oscillator generates the waveform that is the basis of the sound. The timbre has two oscillators. The settings in this section are for oscillator 1. "WAVE" (knob 1) selects the basic waveform for oscillator 1, and "CONTROL 1" (knob 2) and "CONTROL 2" (knob 3) modify the waveform. For example if you set "WAVE" to Saw ( "CONTROL 1"...

  • Page 28

    4. OSC2 Here you can make settings for oscillator 2. You can create a variety of sounds by using two oscillators together. For example you can adjust "SEMITONE" (knob 3) and "TUNE (knob 4) so that one oscillator acts as though it were part of the overtone structure of the other oscillator, set the pitches of the two oscillators to an interval of harmony, or set both oscillators to the same pitch but slightly detune one of them to create a detuning effect.

  • Page 29

    5. MIXER These parameters adjust the volume balance of the oscillator 1 and 2, and the noise generator. "OSC 1 LEVEL" (knob 1) sets the output level of oscillator 1, "OSC 2 LEVEL" (knob 2) sets the output level of oscillator 2, and "NOISE LEVEL"...

  • Page 30: Filter — Synth

    6. FILTER The filter controls the tonal character of the sound produced by the oscillator. It determines the tone by allowing only the desired portion of the sound to pass. "TYPE" (knob 1) selects the type of filter (i.e., the way in which it will cut the frequency). "CUTOFF" (knob 2) sets the frequency at which the cut will occur.

  • Page 31

    6. FILTER TYPE -12dB BPF ( -12dB/oct BPF (Band Pass Filter) allows a frequency band in the re- gion of the cutoff frequency to pass, and cuts the remaining frequencies.

  • Page 32: Filter Eg — Synth

    7. FILTER EG Here you can make settings for the filter EG, which applies time-variant change to the tone ( Figure 7-1). Make these settings to specify the "shape" of the EG, and use the FILTER parameter "FILTER EG INT" to specify the amount of effect that the EG will have ( p.24). By making FILTER EG settings, you can make the tone change as time passes.

  • Page 33

    8. AMP (Amplifier) These parameters specify the volume. The sound that is created by passing through the oscillator and filter is amplified by the amp. "LEVEL" (knob 1) adjusts the volume. "KBD TRACK" (knob 4) adjusts how keyboard tracking will affect the volume, and "DISTORTION" (knob 3) specifies whether the sound will be distorted.

  • Page 34: Amp Eg — Synth/vocoder

    9. AMP EG Here you can make settings for the AMP EG, which applies time-variant change to the volume ( Figure 9-1). By making AMP EG settings, you can make the volume change as time passes. Create the desired volume curve by adjusting the ADSR parameters; ATTACK (knob 1), DECAY (knob 2), SUSTAIN (knob 3), RELEASE (knob 4).

  • Page 35

    10. LFO 1, 11. LFO 2 The timbre has two LFOs (Low Frequency Oscillator). The cyclic change produced by an LFO can modulate various aspects of the sound such as the pitch, tone, or volume. Use "WAVE" (knob 1) to select the LFO waveform, knob 2 to select the key sync method, "TEMPO SYNC" (knob 3) to synchronize the LFO cycle to the tempo, and "FREQUENCY"/"SYNC NOTE"...

    (oscillator, filter, amp, EG, LFO, and other controllers) was connected ("patched") by a patch cord as desired, allowing you a great deal of freedom in creating the sound. The Korg MS-20 (which went on sale in 1978) also allowed a limited degree of this type of patching.

  • Page 37: Editing A Vocoder Program, The Structure Of A Vocoder Program, Overview

    Editing a vocoder program Overview A vocoder is a device that analyzes the character (the frequency response of each band) of a "modulator" signal (typically a human voice from a mic), and applies a filter with the analyzed characteristics to the "carrier" signal (typically a waveform produced by an oscillator), imposing a vocal character on that waveform, and making it seem as though the instrument is talking.

  • Page 38: Osc1 — Synth/vocoder, Voice — Synth/vocoder, Pitch — Synth/vocoder

    1. VOICE The "1. VOICE" parameters are the same as for a synth program with a "SINGLE/LAYER" setting of Single ( p.16). To use the program as a vocoder program, set "SYNTH/VOCODER" (knob 1) to Vocoder ( 2. PITCH The "2. PITCH" parameters are the same as for a synth program ( p.17). They specify the pitch of the carrier. 3.

  • Page 39

    4. AUDIO IN 1 These parameters adjust the input from AUDIO IN 1 (the modulator). Adjust "THRESHOLD" (knob 2) so that noise is not heard when you are not speaking, and adjust "GATE SENSE" (knob 1) so that the vocoder sound is not cut off unnaturally. Use "HPF LEVEL" (knob 3) to emphasize the consonants (such as "s" sounds) of the input voice. GATE SENSE [0...127] THRESHOLD...

  • Page 40: Mixer — Vocoder

  • Page 41

    6. FILTER By using "FORMANT SHIFT" (knob 1) and "CUTOFF" (knob 2) to shift the cutoff frequency of each band pass filter of the carrier (the "synthesis filter"), you can raise or lower the frequency response while maintaining the character of the modulator, thus varying the character of the vocoder output.

  • Page 42: Fc Mod — Vocoder

    7. FC MOD These parameters select the modulation source that will vary the cutoff frequency of the carrier band-pass filter (the synthesis filter), and specify the depth of the modulation. For example if you set the modulation source "SOURCE" (knob 1) to AMP EG (A.EG) and use "INTEN- SITY"...

  • Page 43

    8. AMP These parameters adjust the volume. "LEVEL" (knob 1) specifies the volume of the internal sound source (OSC 1, NOISE) for the carrier. "KBD TRACK" (knob 4) specifies how keyboard tracking will affect the volume, and "DISTORTION" (knob 3) specifies whether the sound will be distorted.

  • Page 44

    12. CH LEVEL A, 13. CH LEVEL B These parameters set the level for each of the eight band-pass filter channels (SYNTHESIS FILTER) of the carrier ( p.35). This lets you adjust the output level of the internal carrier sound source (OSC 1, NOISE). If desired, you can initialize (127) the level of all band-pass filter channels in a single step.

  • Page 45: Editing The Effects And Eq, The Microkorg's Effect Structure, Overview

    The microKORG's effect structure Editing the effects and EQ Overview The output from the amp section of a synth program or vocoder program is sent to the modulation effect (MOD FX) delay effect (DELAY FX) equalizer (EQ). ( p.15 Figure 0-1, ›p.31 Figure v0-1) You can edit the modulation type effect and the delay effect to create the desired sound in the same way as when editing the filter or amp parameters.

  • Page 46: Mod Fx — Synth/vocoder

    16. MOD FX The modulation effect applies various types of cyclic change to the original sound. You can use it to give the sound greater depth, or to produce the impression that multiple sound sources are being heard simultaneously. You can also use LFO modulation to simulate cyclic changes produced by a performer on an instrument, such as breathing on a wind instrument or the strings of a string instrument.

  • Page 47

    17. DELAY The delay effect simulates the delays that occur when sound travels through air. "TYPE" (knob 1 ) selects the type of delay effect. "DELAY DEPTH" (knob 4 ) sets the delay depth and the amount of feedback. "TEMPO SYNC" (knob 2 ) specifies whether the delay time will be synchronized to the tempo set by the arpeggiator or by an external MIDI clock.

  • Page 48: Eq — Synth/vocoder

    18. EQ This is a two-band equalizer. Use EQ FREQ (knobs 1 and 3 to specify the frequency that you want to adjust, and use knobs 2 and 4 to adjust the gain of each frequency band. Excessively raising the equalizer gain parameters may cause the output to be distorted. LOW EQ FREQ.

    The structure of arpeggiator Editing the arpeggiator Overview The microKORG's arpeggiator provides six arpeggio types. You can adjust the duration (gate time) and spacing of the notes played by the arpeggiator. The arpeggiator settings are adjusted by the ARPEG.A and ARPEG.B parameters. Each of the up to eight steps produced by the ARPEG.A and ARPEG.B settings can be switched on/off using the "step arpeggiator,"...

  • Page 50: Arpeg. A — Synth/vocoder

    19. ARPEG. A Here you can make various arpeggio-related settings. "TYPE" (knob 4 ) selects the arpeggio type. "TEMPO" sets the tempo of the arpeggiator, and "RESOLUTION" (knob 2 ) specifies the spacing of the notes relative to the tempo. "GATE (knob 3 ) sets the duration of the arpeggiated notes, and "RANGE"...

  • Page 51

    20. ARPEG. B Here you can make additional arpeggio-related settings. "LAST STEP" (knob 4 ) sets the number of steps in the arpeggio. "LATCH" (knob 1 ) specifies how the arpeggiator will operate when you release the keyboard, "SWING" (knob 2 ) adjusts the sense of swing, and "KEY SYNC" (knob 3 ) specifies how the arpeggiator will be synchronized to the keyboard.

  • Page 52: Overall Settings (global), Global Structure, Overview

    GLOBAL structure Overall settings (GLOBAL) Overview The GLOBAL section lets you can make overall settings for the microKORG. For example, although it is possible to individually adjust the pitch of each synth or vocoder program, you can use the GLOBAL pitch settings ("MASTER TUNE" and "MASTER TRANSPOSE") to adjust the pitch of all programs.
