DetailsMEET THE NEW MICRO
For years, the microKORG has been the world’s top-selling synthesizer. Now the microKORG XL is ready to join the Korg line-up. Based on the same winning combination of a small footprint, mini-keys, battery-powered portability and huge Korg sound, the microKORG XL is ready to expand your musical vocabulary. The fun factor is huge, too. A gooseneck microphone is included for instant vocoding excitement, right out of the box!
NEO-VINTAGE SYNTH POWER
The microKORG XL carries a proud pedigree. The MMT (Multi Modeling Technology) sound engine is descended from the RADIAS/R3 synthesizers, while the dual effects processors come down from the famous KAOSS line. The microKORG XL offers remarkable playability. The black key/white key proportions have been adjusted for easier chording; the key response has been improved for rapid-fire soloing. And the old -school square front keys? Well, they look wicked cool. Together with a sound-bending vocoder and six-pattern arpeggiation, microKORG XL packs a powerful sonic punch.
The eight-voice MMT synth engine offers traditional analog waveforms plus a total of seven algorithms, including formant waveforms, noise, and PCM/DWGS waves for those vintage keyboards and strings. Cross-modulation, unison stacking, and VPM (Variable Phase Modulation) let you create sounds that would be impossible for a conventional PCM synthesizer. Sync and ring modulation make it easy to create complex and powerful sounds. Two multi-mode filters, a drive/waveshaping circuit for distinctively distorted sounds, and EG and LFO for creating time-varying tonal change, provide plenty of parameters for serious synthesis. Virtual Patching brings it all together.
Seventeen up-to-the-minute effects deliver everything from a traditional chorus to grain shifting. In The delay effects can be synchronized to MIDI clock for “beat-sensitive” situations. You can even process external sounds! The microKORG XL’s amazing vocoder adds vocal characteristics to any sound, creating everything from pseudo choirs and talking instruments to vintage Sci-Fi robots. Our unique Formant Hold allows you to freeze the vocal input for continuous vocoder effects. Use the Formant Shift function to adjust the level and pan of each of the sixteen bands, greatly altering the tonal character. The distinctive retro-styling allows for quick selection of any of the 128 on-board, editable programs. For the diehard synthesists and sound designers, you can use the three performance edit knobs for fast, effective editing in performance. You're also free to select and assign your favorite parameters. Download the free Editing software and manage sounds on your computer!

"Hey Chad- Just letting you know I received the Allen & Heath MPS12 power supply ordered from Musicians Buy. That's just about as quick and effortless as possible! Thank you very much for your expert handling of this order. The power supply works perfectly, is very compact, and WAY less noisy than the power supply inside the desk. Much relief to my ears in the studio! M.H."
