Korg microKxR AudioUnit & VSTi Librarian Editor Plug-in

Korg microKxR AudioUnit & VSTi Librarian Editor Plug-in is plug-in to control your Korg microKorg right from your DAW. With microKxR, you can work with your Korg microKorg by the same way you use your VSTi and AudioUnit plug-ins. microKxR will recall your patch settings when you open your project and the data will be sent to your Korg microKorg automatically once you open your project. Our plug-in supports import of the official Korg microKorg Editor Programs and it will load banks made with the MS2KxR Editor & banks created with Korg MS2000 Presets. The only thing you need to worry, is that you power-up your Korg microKorg synth.

Faster Workflow

Since there are a lot of great software synthesizers in the markets today and because they are so fast to use, we wanted to bring this functionality to every producer out there with Korg microKxR plugin and 1st generation microKorg series model. It is now much faster to scroll thru patches & make edits within your DAW. 

The best part is, when you reopen your project, you don’t have to worry about the patch data you had on your synth while producing: Our plugin stores all the data within the project and when you reopen the project, all of the used data gets sent to your hardware, automatically! No more external applications for saving, loading or transferring patch data. Welcome total recall.

  • Control 1st generation Korg microKorg series synthesizer directly from your DAW.
  • Automate almost every parameter directly from your DAW.
  • No need to remember CC’s for each knobs / per synthesizer. Goodbye sticky notes!
  • Load, Edit and Store patches into hardware memory or in your HDD personal library.
  • Store any MS2000 / MicroKorg compatible soundset in your HDD library folder and browse it from our plugin.
  • Send banks or individual patches from librarian to hardware.
  • Request banks or individual patches from hardware to librarian.
  • Total Recall: When you reopen your project, all of the data used in it, will be sent to the hardware, automatically!

Check Specifications tab for more info about the plug-in capabilities.

Setting Up the Connection

It is very easy to setup our plugin and to start using in your productions. Just follow the steps below and you can’t go wrong. Check our Articles for more guidance and troubleshooting.

DAW Settings:

  • Fire up your DAW and head to settings.
  • Make sure MIDI input from the terminal used with your synth is disabled or adjust a filter in settings to disable CC and SysEx messages passing through.
  • Load our microKxR Plugin and select appropriate MIDI terminals from the upper right corner where your microKorg is connected. Only MIDI in and out, MIDI Thru is not supported.
  • Plugin is now ready to receive and send data to your microKorg.

Synthesizer Settings:

Fire up your microKorg and enter settings. This is a little bit tricky, so we wrote a guide how to set everything properly for microKorg. You can read it by clicking the link below.

Korg microKorg Configuration for Korg microKxR plug-in

DAW MIDI Filtering:

It is important to filter hardware MIDI messages coming from the microKorg to avoid double processing the messages. Double processing happens when message is first received via the plug-in MIDI interface and then again from DAW MIDI interface.

MIDI in Windows environment does not support recourse sharing (in most cases), so you would have to disable the MIDI ports from DAW anyway.

More info in our Setting MIDI Devices User Guide.

Check Downloads / Socials tab for detailed synthesizer settings.

What you CAN do with our Korg microKxR plug-in:

  • Control your Korg microKorg hardware synthesizer from your DAW over MIDI.
  • Edit almost every parameter of your synthesizer from our plug-in.
  • We added almost 500 parameters to the plugin (2 timbres) so the sound editing should be painless and quick task.
  • Automate almost every parameter in your DAW.
  • Easier to handle automations than trying to remember hundreds of #CC’s.
  • Changing timbre from plugin changes timbre in hardware and vice versa.
  • Layer multiple patches to create massive leads or such.
  • Parameters that are available for automation will be listed on your DAW. (Ableton Live can’t see our parameters, until you touch a knob / button).
  • Total Recall of the sounds used up on project reload.
  • All of the current parameters from the plugin will be sent to the hardwares temp memory up on project reload!
  • Time saver when thinking about storing, naming and loading data from multiple hardwares per project.
  • Plugin reacts to hardware knob movements and displays knob, menu and button values within the plugin display.
  • Store banks to your microKorg from the librarian.
  • Store patches to your microKorg from the librarian.
  • Request banks from your microKorg to the librarian.
  • Request patches from your microKorg to the librarian.
  • Store requested or modified bank data to your own library (on your HDD).
  • View & edit patch name in plug-in interface & librarian.
  • Librarian supports MIDI and SysEx soundset formats from MS2000 / microKorg models.
  • Librarian supports import of official Korg microKorg editor programs.
  • Select next or previous librarian patch from hardware.
  • Select next or previous hardware patch from librarian.
  • Move patches from one bank to another and save as you like.
  • You can send patches from the plug-in to your synthesizers Temp memory buffer OR you can write user memory slots through our plug-in.
  • Download and import all of the MS2000 / microKorg soundsets in one folder for quick access through the plugin.
  • Each timbre can have its own patch.
  • Each timbre has its own parameters which you can automate from your DAW.

What our plug-in can NOT do:

  • Transmit any audio. You have to plug your Synthesizers audio jacks into your mixer in order to hear the sound.
  • You can not remotely start and / or shut down your Synthesizer.

Operating system specified settings / limits:

Windows limitations

Since Windows platform CAN NOT share resources between applications, it is important that you disable the MIDI input and output from your DAWs settings which you are intending to use with our plugin. If you leave the port open, our plugin will see it and once you click to use it, it WILL crash your DAW and you will lose your data. Check our tutorials for videos and documents to get everything working properly!

macOS limitations

macOS works “out from the box” with resource sharing, you are good to go once you insert the plugin into your DAW. However, our plugin can cause you a MIDI loop if you leave the port open / unfiltered from your hardware to your DAW. You can set various filters in your DAW. (please refer to your DAW manual how to do it).


  • Korg microKorg Synthesizer (1st generation).

General Q&A

Do you accept Refunds?

Since we deliver digital download product with lifetime license, refunds are only given at the discretion of the management. You should download the DEMO first to give it a go and read our guides through properly.

Does your prices include taxes / vat?

No. Our payment processor, FastSpring is handling all of the tax / vat calculations during the checkout process. You can view the final price in your own currency at checkout and any taxes / vat applied to the products.

What payment methods do you accept?

Our payments are handled via FastSpring which is one of the biggest Ecommerce payment gateways used. They have several different options from PayPal to Credit Cards and even Online Banking options for some countries.

Add some products to cart and see what options you have!

If I place preorder for upcoming plug-in product, will I have access to beta version?

Yes. We will provide beta version of your product as soon as possible.

Is the preorder charged upfront or at release date?

Pre-orders are charged immediately. This is a great opportunity for you to save some cash before the product is released and you will get early access to the plug-in.

What is the best way to contact you?

If you have pre-sale questions, please use the chat option OR use contact form in the contact us page. In store purchase cases, use support tickets to file in your support request.

Does this plug-in generate sound?

Not at the moment. You can only control the real synthesizer with our plug-in.
In future, there will be PRO upgrades available, which will eliminate the need of the hardware completely and our plug-in works as a regular VSTi / AudioUnit / AAX instrument plug-in.

What are the plug-in requirements?

You need the real hardware synthesizer which the editor is made for. If PRO upgrade is available, hardware is not required. List for requirements:

  • You need the real hardware synth, which the editor is made for.
  • Version 3 requires 64-bit AAX, AudioUnit, VST2 or VST3 host for Mac & PC.
  • 32/64-bit AudioUnit / VST host for Mac or PC.
  • MIDI interface. A good one which supports SysEx messages. Don’t buy anything which is less than 50€.
  • Direct MIDI in / out connection between your synth and the MIDI interface. No MIDI Thru connections or MIDI in only / MIDI out only connections.
  • Audio cables from the synth to soundcard or mixer in order to hear the sound.
  • At least 1600×1024 pixels resolution.

Why my DAW crashes when I set MIDI in / out from the plug-in?

It appears that your MIDI device might be in use by your DAW or other application. Be sure to follow our User Guides to setup your DAW environment properly before using our plug-ins.

Which functions are not available in the DEMO version?

  1. User can not save requested data from synthesizer to HDD.
  2. User can not store patches from librarian to synthesizer.
  3. Total Recall is disabled. This means, your last used plug-in settings will not be sent to your synthesizer up on loading the project.
  4. Plug-in parameters are not visible for DAW to automate.
  5. Demo version can not be registered.

Where is the plug-in User Manual located?

UPDATE 2021-October-26

All user manuals will be available in online format only. You can find the published user manuals from Knowledge Base.

You can also find our YouTube playlist for Access Virus Editor plug-in, which covers most of the DAWs in Mac and PC environment. (outdated since v3).

Why plug-in displays DEMO version after purchasing the license?

You need to download and install FULL version of the plug-in in order to register it. Check next question for instructions.

Do I need to remove the DEMO before installing FULL version?

No. FULL installer will overwrite the DEMO version from your harddrive.

Can I transfer my license to someone else or include it when I sell the synth?

No. Once you purchase the license for the plug-in, you are solely entitled to lifetime support for the plug-in. It does not make sense to us, that once you sell the license, we would have to start supporting a new “client”.

Can I use my license on multiple computers?

Yes, as long as the computer is yours. If we get support requests made with your license, by someone else than you, your license will be deleted.

Do I need a internet connection to activate the plug-in?

No, you can purchase the plug-in license from our store and download the license.key and full installers and bring them to your offline computer for setup.

I just purchased the plug-in, where can I download the license?

Click Downloads – Plug-ins link. Once you are there, you can download the license.key and plug-in full installers from there.

How do I add the license.key for the plug-in to register?

UPDATE 2021-October-26

license.key needs to be located in:

[ WINDOWS ] \”login username”\Documents\Mystery Islands Music\”plug-in name”\
[ macOS ] /Library/Audio/Presets/Mystery Islands Music/”plug-in name”/

…in order to register. Reload your project or plug-in instance in order to validate.

[ macOS version 3 ]
Since version 3, license.key must be placed in: /Library/Application Support/Mystery Islands Music/Resources/”plug-in name”/

Can I support your development in any way?

Yes sure! We have two options:

  1. Get subscription for one of our plug-in bundles, or
  2. Support us via Patreon. When you become a Patron, you are entitled to get deeper insights of our developments and you have a chance to make a big difference in our future development.

Do you have a roadmap for future projects?

Yes we do. You can follow up on our future project on the roadmap page.

Patrons have a special opportunity to change the direction of our development!

Why plug-in says reload license after copying license to right folder?

There are usually two reasons for that:

  1. Plug-in has failed to read the license file. Make sure the license is called “license.key” in the plug-in folder and not “license.key.txt”. If you see .txt appended, rename the file to “license.key” and try to validate again.
  2. Plug-in has failed to locate the license.key. Make sure the license is in the plug-in folder, ie: Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Presets/Mystery Islands Music/(plugin name)/license.key

note that Version 3 has a new location for license.key in macOS platforms. License should be placed in /Library/Application Support/Mystery Islands Music/Resources/(“plug-in name”)/ folder.

Realistic Bi-directional Graphical User Interface

Our graphical user interface design has been made to make everything from sound design to patch editing as smooth as possible. When you move a slider, push a button or twist a knob in your hardware, software will respond at appropriate layer/part.

All the edits are stored within the project, so once the project is opened up again, Total Recall will send the data to hardware automatically.

Korg microKxR Main User Interface

Patch and Performance mode management

Korg microKxR comes with ability to control Timbre 1 and/or Timbre 2 from the plug-in. This means, you can have Lead sound on Timbre 1 and Bass sound on Timbre 2 if you wish.

You can send patches from Librarian Browser to your chosen Timbre, we made it possible. More info about this function can be seen in our tutorials tab, where we are demonstrating this function in a tutorial video!

Korg microKxR Patch Librarian

Korg microKxR and Automation


With FULL version of Korg microKxR plug-in, you can automate almost every parameter right from your DAW without having to remember all of the MIDI CC’s.

This can be done easily by setting your DAW automation to Write or Latch mode and then turning the knob from the hardware or the plug-in.

Some of the SysEx parameters are not available due to a lot bandwidth taken from the MIDI cable.
