KORG microKORG XL+ MIDI Synthesizer/Vocoder Limited Edition

Space-saving MIDI synthesizer and vocoder with 16-band vocoder, touch-sensitive mini keyboard and multi-modelling technology. Features the option of battery-powered operation for portable use, swan neck microphone and power supply.

Vintage design with a modern twist – limited red and black edition.

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.
