Synthesist Todd Smith has dropped a free collection of sounds for the classic KORG microKORG synthesizer.
The microKORG has been on the market for 17 years – and it’s still a hugely popular synth, due to its price, versatility, unique sound and size. Disclosure, The Gorillaz, Joji and endless list of other artists, have all been known to use this little powerhouse synth.
From lush pads to sharp leads, this new microKORG sound library is a must-have. Todd Smith brings us the first bank of his “Best microKORG Sounds” pack.
The initial offering came a couple of days ago, with the release of 16 sounds for Bank A. Bank B (the pads) was just announced today with a sound demo posted to Smith’s youtube channel. The Bank A sound library is available now as a free download (Sysex format) and does a good job of showcasing the range of the microKORG, including pads, percussive plucks, leads and more.
Smith is also working on a Bank C currently and plans to “fill an entire microKORG with 100% free sounds“. Regardless, we’re in for a saucy collection of patches if the banks to come are anything like the first offering.
