The black KingKORG 61-Key Analogue Modelling Synthesiser from Korg is a synthesiser designed for live performance that covers all synth sounds with an array of parameter knobs. It can be used by musicians or sound designers to reproduce the sound of classic instruments, and more. Featuring powerful oscillators that are understandable to the beginner, yet satisfying for the expert, the KingKORG has three master effect sections (each with six effects types), and a vacuum tube driver circuit that adds rich overtones and powerful distortion.

Also, the panel layout is designed for intuitive operation. A microphone input provides the audio source for the built-in vocoder. The vocoder features Formant Shift, which dramatically modifies the tonal character of the modulated sound, as well as Formant Hold, which allows for "freezing" a vowel sound and playing it back from the keyboard.

Finally, a step arpeggiator provides a choice of six arpeggio types, with the ability to specify the duration, interval, and on/off status of each step. A virtual patch function continues the classic synthesiser mould, allowing for connecting various functions using the six Virtual Patch assignments per timbre.


Powerful Oscillators
KingKORG features a 3-oscillator x 2-timbre design that allows you to generate thick and rich sounds, plus a newly developed XMT modelling sound engine. The XMT (Xpanded Modelling Technology) was created specifically to offer a wide variety of sounds while keeping operation simple. In a conventional synthesiser, the sound-creation process requires you to adjust the oscillator settings one by one, making it difficult to see the overall picture. In contrast, 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 analogue synthesiser—sawtooth wave, square wave, and noise—in addition to numerous PCM/DWGS algorithms, giving you plenty of choices for creating highly personal sounds.

Modelling Filters That Reproduce the Sound of Classic Instruments
In addition to a variety of essential analogue modelling filter types, you get faithful models of filters that reproduce the analogue 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 analogue synth. These filters can also be made to self-oscillate by raising the resonance setting—a unique capability of analogue synthesisers.

Three Master Effects Add the Finishing Touch to Your Sound
KingKORG provides three master effect slots, each giving you a choice of six 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 located below these dials to adjust the effect as desired.

Vacuum Tube Driver Circuit Adds Rich Overtones and Distortion
KingKORG provides a full-analogue 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 synthesiser were talking. KingKORG's 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. The KingKORG's dual-timbre architecture can combine the vocoder with another timbre, either as a complementing sound or a modulation source.

Virtual Patch Function
On many classic synthesisers (such as the MS-20), the signal flow could be reconfigured using patch cables to physically connect one element to another. 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 arpeggio 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.

Australian Shipping Via DHL
DHL offers a great express shipping service to Australia from New Zealand. We are proud to be able to offer express shipping to main cities on the east coast of Australia, within the same timeframe ( If not quicker ) than local Australian courier companies. Prior to the Covid-19 outbreak, service standards for these main centers was overnight. However these services have been impacted greatly, and as such the overnight service has been suspended. Overnight shipping will likely resume once things have returned to normal.

Qualifying main centers include:

  • Brisbane
  • Sydney
  • Adelaide

Whilst this service is extremely efficient and will likely be delivered within 1-2 days 99.9% of the time, it cannot be guaranteed. In the case where something were to go wrong with your delivery and it doesn’t arrive within the specified time frame, in most cases it will be delivered by the next day.

While not all major cities are eligible for overnight delivery, they still benefit from this great service. Other centers throughout Australia will have a typical delivery ETA of 2-4 days. (Excluding rural delivery address where this ETA can be extended to an additional three or more days).

If you require urgent shipping and you don’t reside in one of the cities stated above, please contact us and we can find a solution that works best for you.

Please Note: Shipping via DHL is not available to PO boxes and/ or parcel boxes etc.
