Loaded with classic synth and keyboard sounds
With its unmistakably unique exterior and its inimitable sound, the microKORG set the standard for analog modeling synthesizers. The year 2008 saw the introduction of the microKORG XL, which inherited the microKORG's fat and powerful sounds, while adding keyboard staples such as electric piano and CX-3 organ. And now, in the next evolutionary step, the microKORG XL+ delivers a fresh update to the sounds and look of the microKORG XL, making it an ideal compact keyboard.
The microKORG XL+ can function as a powerful Vocoder that lets you connect a mic and use its audio input to shape the tonal character of the oscillator's sound to create "talking" effects.
The Vocoder consists of a 16-band filter bank that can simulate the Vocoder sounds of the past and also shift the filter frequencies (Format Shift function) or adjust the level and pan of each band to dramatically change the overall sonic character. Using the Vocoder is an easy way to add sounds that can be found in today’s popular electronic music.
Since a gooseneck microphone is included, you can immediately start using the Vocoder in your songs.
The microKORG XL+ can take advantage of the included AC adaptor or it can run on six AA alkaline batteries. Checking in at a mere 22 inches long and 4.4 lbs. in weight (main unit only; not including batteries or mic), the microKORG XL+ is a convenient size to take with you, opening up new performance possibilities on the go.
By using a USB cable to connect the microKORG XL+ to your computer and using the sound editor software, you can edit all of the parameters easily from your computer. In addition to this software*, you can also download preset program data from the microKORG and the MS2000/MS2000B, and special bonus programs that were made by Korg USA / Korg UK free of charge to gain access to an even larger number of programs.
