Korg MMT micro XL+ Owner's Manual: Using The Knobs To Modify The Sound

Using the knobs to modify the sound

When the [KNOB FUNCTION SELECT] dial is set to "ASSIGN," "FILTER,"
"AMP EG," "EFFECT," or "ARP," you can use knobs [1]–[3] to control the
performance edit functions. Try turning each knob, and hear the sound
change in realtime.
Using performance editing
1. Select a program.
2. Use the [KNOB FUNCTION SELECT] dial to choose the
section that you want to edit.
Consider how the original program differs from the sound you have in mind,
and then choose the appropriate parameters to edit.
Use the [TIMBRE SELECT] lever or the [VOCODER] button to select the
NOTE
part to edit.
3. While playing the keyboard, use knobs [1], [2], and [3] to
modify the sound.
For example if you're editing a synth program and you choose "FILTER" in
step 2, the three knobs will control the filter's TYPE, CUTOFF, and RESO-
NANCE parameters as printed on the front panel.
Knob [1] will select the filter type of filter 1.
Knob [2] will change the cutoff frequency of filter 1.
Knob [3] will change the resonance of filter 1, adding a distinctive character
to the sound.
You can save the sound you've modified using performance edit.

Performance edit parameters
Some of the main parameters you can control using performance edit are
described below.
CUTOFF
This adjusts the cutoff frequency of filter 1, varying the brightness of the
sound. Normally, turning the knob toward the left will darken the sound, and
turning the knob toward the right will brighten the sound.
RESONANCE
This adjusts the amount of resonance for filter 1, adding a distinctive char-
acter to the sound.
For an LPF (Low Pass Filter)
Cutoff
Cutoff
Low resonance value
ATTACK
This adjusts the attack time of EG2 (the amp EG). It specifies the time from
note-on (pressing a key) until the attack level is reached. This will vary the
speed at which the EG2 sound begins. Normally, turning the knob toward
the left will shorten the attack time, and turning it toward the right will
lengthen the attack time.
RELEASE
This adjusts the release time of EG2 (the amp EG). It specifies the time
from note-off (releasing a key) until the sound decays to silence. This will
vary the EG2 release time. Normally, turning the knob toward the left will
shorten the release time, and turning it toward the right will lengthen the
release time.
Cutoff
