Maxikorg duophony

July 31, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

“Analog sound. Impossible to recreate with today’s synths.”

A popular duophonic/monophonic classic from Korg. It’s got 2 analog oscillators that can be used for one fat monophonic sound or 2 VCO’s per voice for a fat duophonic sound. Flexible design with 2 voltage controlled filters and even a ring modulator. The Maxi-Korg is a great source of early Korg sound that rivals competitors like the OSCar and Roland SH-synths. No MIDI, no memory, but good bass and screechin’ leads! It has no CV input either, though it can be modified to accept externnal control from the less standard Hz/V protocol (also used by Yamaha).

Most people usually understand it best as two separate MiniKorgs inside one keyboard with all the controls to both. Most people will stack both voices as the triggering can be tricky as duophonic. It has the very effective ability to delay one voice before it triggers when played mono.
