Korg | M500 Micro-Preset
The Korg Micro Preset M500 synthesizer is a curious late 1970s beast with a slightly bizarre matrix of pre-set sounds, including laughable woodwind and similar noises and a low-quality keyboard all housed in a wooden box! It's a 32-note monophonic preset synthesizer with 6 push-button presets including voice, synth1, synth2, brass, string, and wood. Its single-oscillator design has only rudimentary decay/release envelope controls and no access to the guts of the sound generation stuff. Perhaps it was aimed at the beginners market.
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 M500SP.
