DJDeals.net is a KORG Authorized DealerMeet The Micro!
For years, the microKORG has been the world's top-selling music synthesizer. Now, the Korg microKORG XL Analog Modeling Synthesizer 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 Korg microKORG XL Analog Modeling Synthesizer is ready to expand your musical vocabulary. The fun factor is huge, too. A gooseneck microphone is included for instant synthesizer vocoder excitement, right out of the box!

Neo-Vintage Music Synth Power
The Korg microKORG XL Analog Modeling Synthesizer music synthesizer 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 Korg microKORG XL Analog Modeling Synthesizer also offers remarkable playability. For example, the black key/white key proportions have been adjusted for easier chording and 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, Korg microKORG XL Analog Modeling Synthesizer packs a powerful sonic punch.

The eight-voice MMT synth engine in the Korg microKORG XL Analog Modeling Synthesizer music synthesizer 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 to generate. Sync and ring modulation also 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, all 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 all the way to grain shifting. In addition, delay effects can be synchronized to a 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. You can also 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 of the microKorg XL music synthesizer allows for quick selection of any of the 128 on-board, editable programs. For the diehard synthesists and sound designers, the three performance edit knobs provide for fast and effective editing.. You're also free to select and assign your favorite parameters!

Korg, expands its micro line of portable synthesizers with the Korg microKORG XL Analog Modeling Synthesizer synth with vocoder (MKXL), offering a variety of tools for performers, producers, computer musicians and beginners alike. Joining the ranks of the top-selling originals microKORG and R3, the 37-note velocity-sensitive Korg microKORG XL Analog Modeling Synthesizer offers Korg's legendary analog modeling, along with an ergonomic interface, in a lightweight and portable keyboard. MKXL employs full eight-voice, multi modeling technology, a 16-band vocoder, on-the-fly parameter editing and USB MIDI connectivity, all packaged with the all-new, great-feeling Natural Touch keyboard action.

The Korg microKORG XL Analog Modeling Synthesizer utilizes Korg's powerful RADIAS engine to offer a rich analog sound with 128 stunning sounds right out of the box. Everything from thick basses and crisp leads to sumptuous pads and fantastic arpeggios are never far out of reach with the unit's intuitive genre and sound categorization system. In addition, external audio inputs let players use any audio source as the waveform, which can then be processed using MKXL's synth engine. Also on board are 17 effects derived from Korg's KAOSS series of dynamic effects processors. Included are reverbs, choruses, decimation, distortion, grain shift, several types of delay, flanger and much more. Users can apply two effects at a time to any program or performance. A virtual patch mode lets users further sculpt their sound by setting synthesis parameters to be modulated by other parameters. Up to six virtual patches are available per program.

microKORG XL's interface provides clean, uncluttered control. Three large knobs let players instantly modify the current sound to their liking. The knobs can also be used to explore the full edit mode with the large backlit LCD screen as their guide. The full edit mode allows users to choose filters, adjust AMP, EG and LFO settings, add effects and EQ the sound, then save it all on the spot.

The built-in vocoder features 16 bands with formant shift. An included heavy-duty gooseneck microphone provides immediate access to the vocoder. In addition, any sound source can be run through the vocoder via the stereo audio inputs. A fully sync-able step arpeggiator lets users choose from six preset patterns (Up, Down, Alt1, Alt2, Random and Trigger) or create their own with the on-board step arpeggio editor.

microKORG XL offers direct USB connectivity with users' computers, allowing it to act as a MIDI controller for their favorite software. The three real-time knobs on the front panel can transmit MIDI messages (control change), so they can be used as controllers for software synthesizers. USB also provides instant access to the dedicated Editor/Librarian, without the need for additional interfacing hardware.

The microKORG XL's compact size is perfect for musicians or DJs looking to add a synth to their setup, especially when space is an issue. It is also a great choice for use in a computer-based music setup. With its battery power option, it can be easily transported from studio to stage to living room.
