Korg microSAMPLER

Korg microSAMPLER

I’ve owned a few hardware Samplers. When I was in high school my father bought me a Roland S-50. Later, I had an Akai S950 and further down the road a S3000XL. I’ve always thought sampled sounds cut through a mix in a strong interesting way. The best part of a sampler is that if you actually use it to Sample sounds you have audio that’s unique all to you. Make a song out of your kitchen pots and pans rattling? No problem.

I’m thrilled to see Korg is going to release a new hardware Sampler keyboard. The microSampler is the right size, has some effects, mic input, software control and it can apparently attach to an iPhone. I have no idea if all this will add up to yum but milk, sugar, eggs and chocolate usually equals awesome.
