KingKORG NEO Review and Tutorial

KingKORG NEO Review: Retro character returns in a new compact form

KingKORG NEO is a 3-octave version of the original King Korg, in a more compact form factor. Other than a few differences which I discuss in the video, it has the same hands-on workflow, the same all-digital multi-oscillator engine with over 130 waveshapes and samples, the same 18 filter models, effects and modulation options, the same bi-timbral or dual-layer features, and a vocoder mode.

In this video, I briefly take a look at the differences between NEO and the original KingKORG, and then dive deep into its workflow and synth engine, including its very interesting oscillator section and multiple filter models:
