    The MicroKorg XL+ features more than ever before with the inclusion of additional rich and beautiful analogue modelled synthesizer sounds taken from the renowned M1 and Vox organ as well as Korg's legendary stage piano and electric piano sounds. In addition, the Korg MicroKorg features some old-school sounds reminiscent of the mighty Mellotrons including flutes and strings. All 128 preset sounds come ready to use and offer a vast choice to suit all genres and keyboardists.

    Following the grand tradition of the MicroKorg XL, Korg's MicroKorg XL+ offers two large knobs controlling the "music genre" and instrument category letting you choose the perfect sound more intuitively than ever before. In addition the MicroKorg XL+, just like its predecessor can be used as a vocoder function and comes with a gooseneck microphone. The vocoder is based around a 16-band filter bank and is capable of creating the "classic" vocoders sounds, but can also produce some impressive out of this world sounds by shifting filter frequencies or panning the sound.

    Underneath it's retro-looking new design, the Korg MicroKorg XL+ boasts Korg's renowned MMT (Multiple Modelling Technology) to produce a vast array of deep, rich and lush sounds akin to analogue synthesis. Centred on 2 powerful and flexible oscillators, MMT is capable of producing a vast array of fat and powerful sounds complemented by impressive modulation techniques such as Variable Phase Modulation (VPM), cross modulation or unison to expand the sonic palette MicroKorg XL+. In addition the MicroKorg XL+ features two powerful and independent effect engines inspired by the legendary Kaoss Pad series, offering 17 flexible and rich effects including delay, reverb, ring modulation and grain shifter. Adding to this impressive functional keyboard, effects can be synch'd to MIDI.

    The MicroKorg XL+'s new and improved keybed features 37 micro keys offering a better playing feel , making it easier to play chords and fast movements. Just like its predecessors, the MicroKorg XL+ compact and battery powered design are truly a gift for the gigging musician. What's more the Microkorg XL+ features a USB socket allowing for the connection to a computer, the deep editing of sounds through the editor software, and the download of many presets featured on Korg's legacy MS2000 and MS2000B as well as the original MicroKorg keyboard.
