Composing Assistant
Select one of the 304 musical styles and play a few simple chords, the microARRANGER begins to generate high quality, full band accompaniment
Compact and Complete
Lightweight and portable, the microARRANGER weighs just 9.26 lb and is only 34.37" long. It features 61 Natural Touch mini-keys and a built-in stereo speaker system
Changes, Styles and Music
Simply set the tempo, play a few chords and the Style Play function will follow your chord changes, voice leading and selected tempo to create additional musical parts
Interactive Styles
Provides 304 Styles from musical genres such as jazz, piano ballads, Latin, pop and rock. Each Style includes intros, endings, fills and breaks that can be used to accent a section or create a cool change. There are four variations of each backing Style and each offers a different level of instrumentation allowing you to build and alternate between sections. Quickly change between styles by simply pressing a button on the easy access control panel. The microARRANGER has a sophisticated chord scanning function which not only detects standard chords such as major and minor, but also complex ones such as 9th or 11th chords, as well as inversions - ensuring that the musical parts created by the Style will correctly follow most any chord progression. You can also edit these styles and store up to 48 of them in the internal memory. New styles are also made available for free download at korgpa.com
Backing Sequencer
Real-time recording captures everything in one pass, as you play. Each part you and the microARRANGER's Style engine plays, is captured on a separate sequencer track allowing you to edit each individual part at any time. With step recording, the chords can be entered one at a time and you can tell the sequencer how long to play each chord, specified in beats and measures. Additional parts, fills, variations and other musical information can be entered this way as well. This method helps you create a song in a step-by-step fashion without the need for advanced keyboard skills
Song Sequencer
The built-in sequencer allows you to layer up to 16 tracks with a capacity of 56,000 notes. Sequence data created on the microARRANGER is also compatible as Standard MIDI Files, so you can import your song into most any DAW or software sequencer
Advanced Korg Sound Engine
The microARRANGER is loaded with 662 sounds, 33 drum kits and 89 effects. It's packed with sounds such as pianos, electric pianos, organs, thick basses, realistic woodwinds, strings and tight drums. Also included are various high-quality effects which can enhance your song ideas and bring the production to the next level
SD/SDHC Card Data Storage and Transfer
An SD card slot has been included allowing you to load and transfer additional style data directly to and from your PC

    Korg microARRANGER reviews

    microARRANGER 61-Key Professional Arranger is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from KMA making beautiful music! Best realistic/authentic sounds, Styles, at this price point. Takes some getting used to micro-small keys. I rated 5 stars, although I have to deduct half star for under-powered internal amp/speakers (just 5 watts). Quality external amp is needed, in order to match quality of keyboard sounds. I'm hoping to find quality wireless headphones (battery powered transmitter) but haven't yet decided on an ideal solution. Light-weight portability of this keyboard is a real assest! I love this keyboard!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realistic and Affordable We bought this for our studio, as we are currently recording an album/CD for a major label. The Micro Arranger has numerous sound patches that are as real as actual live playing. The variety of instruments are great for fill in overdubbing as well as for performing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Korg sound quality This keyboard is a small version of the best seller Korg PA50 however, portable with the same great sound collection from Korg. The keybed is small, yet comfortable and very responsive. The overall quality is fair (reason why I'm giving 4 stars) but it does the job. It's a product made in China...so do not expect top-quality Japanese musical instrument. Speakers are good and the sound is somehow impressive. If you connect external amps you will have an authentic synth sound quality at your fingers. The styles are fair compared to other Korg PA-series big brothers, but it does cover all musical genres. I ended up purchasing the keyboard with the travel bag and it's a perfect combination for great portability. Not sure how long Korg will keep this instrument still available, so hurry up before they decide to discontinue this great piece of equipment on that reasonable price range. BTW....I think BHPhoto is one of the best online stores and you will receive the item is a sealed box directly from Korg....never had problems with them. Other online stores will ship you open box or even return items tagged as new. Be careful!
