The Microstation is a miniature synthesizer from the Korg company that offers an alternative to the other models in the company's Micro product line. Featuring 61 half-sized keys that implement Korg's "Natural Touch" technology, this model emphasizes portability while incorporating many of the company's best known synthesis types. 480 sounds are included that span drums, basses, leads and keyboards - all fully customizable through the Microstation's integrated editing software. Over 250 sound design combinations are available, offering multiple layering and placement options for specific production needs. External MIDI controlling is also fully supported, with the Level 2 sound set enabling playback of all MIDI filetypes within the keyboard itself. Users can generate and control loops, work within a grid-style sequencer, and access the unit's dual arpeggiators for further synthesis options. Arrangers will benefit from a host of template songs, with an additional "Auto Song Setup" feature that takes the user through each step of the songwriting process. SD card support simplistic importing and exporting of audio content, while USB 2.0 connectivity removes the need for an external MIDI interface.
