KORG MINIKORG 700S Analog Synthesizer 1974 | HD DEMO |


"I played the Minikorg 700S along with a Lexicon MPX 500 (reverb) and a Korg SDD-3000 (delay effects).

The monophonic Mini-Korg 700S was an expanded version of Korg's first synthesizer, the Mini-Korg 700. It has that awesome "traveler" filter (12 dB highpass and lowpass), 2 VCOs (wavevorm of the VCO 2 is always sawtooth), 1 envelope generator and 1 LFO (sine wave only). It also has noise generator, ring modulator modes and the LFO can also be switched to the filters. It has REPEAT mode, which repeats a note to get a sequencer-like feeling.

The Korg 700s is a serious analog synthesizer with a lot of character. It has a fantastic sound, which can be only compared with the first generation Korgs (Korg 770, 800 DV). The parameters use unconventional terminology (singing level, expand, bright, and so on). The 700s has a very nice tone and it's easy to use. A pleasure to play and to hear.

The MiniKORG 700s was used by Vangelis, Kitaro, Human League, Daniel Miller and others."
