The microKORG provides four Virtual Patch routes that let you create more sophisticated sounds. Each patch lets you select a modulation
"SOURCE" (knob 1) and modulation destination "DEST" (knob 2), and specify the intensity of modulation "MOD INT" (knob 3). By using
various patchings you can create a wide variety of changes in the sound.
For example if you set the modulation source "SOURCE" (knob 1) to LFO2 (
CutOff (
), and use "MOD INT" (knob 3) to adjust the depth of the effect, LFO2 will create a cyclic change in tone (a "wah" effect).

For example if you select Pitch

to the overall pitch of the timbre.

Virtual Patch
[-63...63]
On modular analog synthesizers, the input or output of each module
(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.
The microKORG lets you perform this patching "virtually" (i.e., without
using physical patch cords), so you can assign sources such as EG or LFO
to the most important parameters (destinations).

The Filter EG or Amp EG will vary the pitch of the entire timbre over time.
The Filter EG or Amp EG will vary the pan over time. By setting two patches to "MOD

Velocity (keyboard playing strength) will affect the volume.

    I couldn't get separate keys for my miro korg.

    I had to buy the whole key assemble

    ​I needed one ocatave of white keys
