Since its launch in 2002, the microKorg has been one of Korg’s biggest success stories. The new microKorg XL+ is a facelift of the XL, released in 2008. The MicroKorg XL+ has an updated soundset that features Korg’s SGProX piano, M1 and VOX organs, and classic Mellotron sounds. 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. This compact package also includes sounds from the M1 and the VOX organ, vintage tape-type string and flute machines, as well as other sounds from keyboard history.
