Vintage design with a modern twist – limited red and black
The microKORG sets the standard for analogue modeling
synthesizers with its discrete look and unique sound. At the end of 2008, the
microKORG XL took over the powerful sounds of the microKORG and expanded upon
its range of features with an electric piano and CX-3 organ. Today, in another
step forward in development, the microKORG XL+ offers even more audio
potential. Its great sounds and latest, professional black design make the
microKORG XL+ the ideal compact synthesizer.
KORG’s MMT engine offers a variety of sound creations
developed by the company and makes use their huge resources in analogue modelling
technology. This way, you get an extensive spectrum of sounds – including great
sounding analogue recreations.
With a microphone and the microKORG XL+ vocoder, sounds can
be extensively processed. From talk box effects, pseudo-chorus, sci-fi robot
voices to 'talking' instruments, everything is possible. There is also the
option of connecting external instruments, such as drum machines, for adding a
more rhythmic feel to synth tracks. With the unique formant hold function, you
can freeze your own voice’s formants in order to process with with vocoder
effects. The microKORG XL+ offers much more than the simulation of classic
vocoder sounds though: With the formant shift function, it’s possible to move
formants and make use of each of the 16 filter bands’ level and panorama
settings to completely alter the tonal character of a voice. This makes it
possible to crate fascinating sound structures far beyond those of traditional
vocoder effects. A swan neck microphone is also included in delivery so you can
get started straight away!
The microKORG XL+ can be connected to a computer via a USB
cable to organise sounds with the sound editor software (free download) or to
edit any parameter. In addition, converted sound program presets from the
microKORG and MS2000/MS2000B in the microKORG XL+ format come free with the
microKORG XL Editor download.
