Korg's latest iteration of the popular MicroKorg analog synth, the new MicroKorg XL+, is now available in stores in the U.S. Korg tells us that it contains a reimagined palette of analog modeled sounds plus new dedicated PCM for Korg's SGProX piano, the M1 and VOX organs, as well as recognizable "Tape" instruments. They say that a vintage look that includes brushed black panel and knobs completes the package.
On top of the 128 onboard sounds, Korg has included another 640 sounds that can be loaded for free through the dedicated Editor Librarian software for Mac and PC.
A Korg spokesperson told Sonic State, "As with each keyboard in the Micro series, the MicroKorg XL+ is ready to play an active role in any situation–on stage, in the studio, or at home. It can run on optional battery power, for extreme portability, and with USB MIDI, it's also a super-portable controller, ideal for use with laptops. A gooseneck mic and 16-band vocoder are also included, for added fun and expression anywhere."
