I had the exact same issue and it was very frustrating. My MicroKorg just stopped making sounds all of a sudden while I was editing patches, the lights on the buttons worked perfectly, but sound-wise it was dead. Hope arised when I tried the demo and it did work. Before that I had tried performing a reset to all the banks, several times, but nothing seemed to work. After I tried the demo I realized there are THREE types of reset, the one that resets a single patch, the one that resets the whole bank of patches and the one YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO RESET, which is the factory reset. I thought the second one was the factory reset, but no, there is (and it is in the same box that the other two, I don't remember where exactly but you can find that easily on the manual). You even have to unblock a function to be able to perform a factory reset, but after that it will work just as new, at least mine did.

Look into all the settings, some of these has a setting to turn internal speaker jacks on and off. I have a casio that can turn them off when playing into the computer.

It seems as though it may just be a sample issue.I have had this similar problem before,because each drum hit corresponds to a key on the piano.It could also be the program you are using to open it.

Why does my lowrey organ not make a sound after I have switched it on?


This is a generic answer for this kind of question.
When there is no sound
Check the obvious.
Is there a light on the organ indicating it is on?
  • Plug it in to a known working wall socket, switch on at the wall
  • Switch on at the organ, check light
  • Very old keyboards need a voice to be selected!!
  • Turn master volume up
  • Turn any other volumes up
  • i.e. lower manual volume
  • upper manual volume
  • swell pedals down
Sometimes a sustain pedal plugged into a volume pedal socket will mute the output, check this.
Headphones out, most headphones will turn speakers off, sometimes the headphone switch can be dodgy, work the headphone plug in an out a few times
There maybe a switch that turns off the speakers, look near the output sockets
Software volumes up, check display, if any.
MIDI instruments, check local control is ON
Still no sound?
Can you hear anything from the speakers?
Hiss or hum usually means the speaker is ok
Total silence may indicate speaker failure, but only if there is one speaker, as in older home organs, or smaller keyboards
Try headphones next, TURN Down master volume first just in case!
If there is some sound, very quiet and gross distortion then possible power amplifier failure.
If your instrument has any kind of line out as well as a headphone jack, try these.
The line output will likely be a pair of phono sockets,like you have on HiFi equipment, 1/4 inch, 6.35mm jacks, like the bigger headphone connector, a 3.5mm socket like the smaller headphone connector, or even a DIN connector on older equipment.
Connect these to the aux (or Line or CD) input on your HiFi, guitar amp or similar. (some times these outputs will drive headphones, usually you will only hear anything in the left side). If this works then it is very likely the power amplifier.
Further tests on MIDI equipped keyboards would be to see if the MIDI does anything.
If MIDI out works and there is no sound, and MIDI in makes a sound this points to local being off, buried somewhere in the menu will be local on or off, make sure it is on.
If MIDI out doesn't work then the failure is likely to be internal power supply or something else critical (not nnecessarily major).
Power amplifier failures in newer, low power, keyboards are often the power amplifier chips (i.c,s), older amplifiers may have just blown their fuses but one or more output transistors may have failed.
Cost of repair will be down to the time it takes to get to the fault, taking these to bits and putting them back can take a lot longer than the repair.!
Hope this helps, Chris the Fader

Why is there no sound output?


Hi, I am answering this generically, because there are a few things that can cause this on a lot of keyboards.
  1. Make sure there are no headphones connected. I have removed headphones and the 3.5mm plug comes out leaving the adaptor, this still cuts the speakers.
  2. Sometimes the switch on the headphone socket does not make properly, work the headphone jack in and out a few times.
  3. Local MIDI should be set to ON, if you cannot find this, as it is often buried in some deep menu, link MIDI out to MIDI in with a cable.
  4. Do a reset, be careful as some restore factory defaults and you will lose user presets, so back up, MIDI dump first, others allow resets that do not affect the voices.
  5. connect to your usual software (sequencer, patch librarian, etc) and see if the keyboard has been muted, volume set to zero etc.
  6. Is the volume knob turned up?
All the best, Chris the fader.

Korg Microkorg XL Vocoder Not Working (No Sound)


Check the mic and connections all through its input into the unit. I would check the cartridge of the mic for continuity for the reason that (I think but not 100% sure) on this model, I think there has to be sound at the mic or it does go silent in vocode mode. This is how it digitizes the mic and keys together. The played keys cannot put onto pitch the sound it is NOT picking up at the mic. I think there is a problem with the mic.

While using korg m50 editor using usb data cable there is no sound from my lap.the sound is only from my head phone connected to my keyboard directly?


Are you connecting to the laptop and using it as a midi controller? You can record midi notes from the keyboard and send them to your laptop via USB using any midi sequencer program (reason, logic, etc). Create a midi track, select the input of that track as your keyboard, then hit record to play some midi notes. To hear what you record, you have to set the output of the midi track to whatever midi sounds or instrunents you have installed on your laptop.

If you are trying to record the actual audio sound the keyboard makes, use an audio program such as cubase, sonar, audacity, pro-tools, and either mic the keyboard, or connect one of the other audio outputs (1/4" TRS) to an audio input on your DAW, and record an audio track that way (as opposed to a midi track).

I have a Korg Microkorg XL. The volume control is not fully functioning. It won't get really quiet or really loud.


The volume control must be have dirt in it. When you move it do you hear rustling noise. A quick spray of WD40 spray into the control will solve the problem.

Microkorg not turning on


I can tell you what it is from first-hand experience. The audio in LED's coming on and going out means that a power supply putting out more than 9 volts DC was used...or the wrong polarity. Korg sells a repair manual for about $12 but they ultimately need a whole new circuit board. If the wrong polarity supply was used, then maybe only a diode was damaged. This would be a cheap fix. But more than likely it knocked out one of the large surface mount IC's that us techs don't even dare to replace. Korg charges around $280 for a new circuit board. A used working microKorg sells for this much.

Honestly, I would stay away from Korg products and many others. Many companies are now using surface mount components which are cheaper and harder to fix. Moog synths are expensive but they are completely fixable(and are built to last). If Korg would install a $0.25 voltage regulator on the input of the DC jacks, the unit would be saved. I think this pretty much sums up the build quality. This is probably not what you wanted to hear but is how it is unfortunately.

Reason as a sound module with the 8800


I have a boss 1600 and ive used it in the way that sounds similar to you situation.It sounds like you have overdubbed track 1 to next track.If you dont want to hear track 1 while rec. track 2 turn fader down, unless you have already recorded or overdubbed 1 to 2.You should be able to hear track 1 unless you turn fader down or cancel tracksound for the time being.track 1 swhould be heard but it wont be re-recorded youll only hear it unless you turn fader down.Thats how mine works anyway.It lets you hear it if you want but wont record until you song save or during bounce nd mixdown.Then you select the tracks and or the virtual track you want to use.Id try to undo or stat again and read about the overdubb in manual.Im sure youll figure it out.I cant hardly imagine what all that 8800 has and is capable of doing.But ive seen one and i think the midi devices work alot alike.Hope you get it.Praisehim316.
