    The Korg Micro Preset is a small simple 32 key single oscillator monphonic synthesizer manufactured by Korg from 1977-1980. It features 6 presets that can be modified with limited on board controls such as a simple Attack/Decay envelope, an assortment of knobs for real time editing, an LFO and sliders for filter cutoff and resonance. It is said to sound very much like it's elder siblings in the MS product line It is also a circuit bender's dream as well as a mod maker's. The Micro Preset was offered in two version that are exactly the same except one came with a built in speaker identidied by the SP on the end of the model number.
