Missing Link ( wireless control of Korg MicroKorg

YouTube Uploaded by MissingLinkMIDI on Jun 2, 2011


In this video, I demonstrate using an iPad with a TouchOSC ( template I created (available at: to control a Korg MicroKorg wirelessly via the Missing Link (

The Missing Link allows users to create completely custom software interfaces for controlling any of the MIDI parameters of their instruments. In this case, it exposes a lot of the controls and functions of the MicroKorg that are not easily accessible (or simultaneously configurable) directly. This is all done without a computer, ensuring the lowest possible latency and highest possible stability for critical performance applications."

iPad editor for the KORG MicroKORG

Update: I gave this editor a try and it is excellent. It really opens up the MicroKORG and allows you to approach it in a way that was not possible below. You'll discover new things that were once inhibited. Unfortunately the MicroKORG does not make all parameters available via MIDI though. For example you can't adjust the speed of the arpeggiator, and you can select the effect type for FX1 and FX2. Note that is a limitation of the MicroKORG and not the editor.
