The MicroMoorg




All right, my Moog-mod for the Microkorg is done...

Heavier and bulkier, but soooo retro.

For a nice vintage tune done within the Microkorg, check out this post.

I'm in the midst of trying to do a similar mod to my own microkorg. I may have figured out a way to keep the hinge portion active, but I'm curious as to what made it not work for you.

It was more of a convenient thing. It felt like too much work at the time to make the panel movable and I felt comfortable with a Phatty-style design, but it's definitely possible, no doubt about that.

By any means keep me informed of your progress, I'd sure love to see a movable version of that mod!

Hello Khoral. I'm interested to modify my microkorg and to have a solution like your one. Do you have some instructions on how-to please ?
i found quite hard to take away the knobs (I was not able, to tell the true, to get them away.)

Thank you very much

Some very basic instructions : http://khoral.blogspot.com/2010/10/micromoorg-quick-mod-tutorial.html

I didn't start mine, the previous owner already had separated the two parts, but I believe he hadn't taken the knobs away. I think he cut the two parts separate with a saw, and removed the top panel with the knobs still in place.

I've finally finished my own MicroMoorg project! The hinge is fully functional and it works great. Ran into quite a few challenges throughout the process and had to learn a whole pile of new skills to pull it off, but it's done and I'm very happy without how it turned out. Thanks for the inspiration!
