Restoring the factory settings
Here's how to restore the microKORG XL+'s programs and global data
settings to their factory-set condition.
The factory settings are called the "preload data."
When you execute the Preload operation, the microKORG XL+'s
data will be rewritten to the factory-set condition. Before you con-
tinue, make sure that it's OK to rewrite the data.
Do not touch the microKORG XL+'s knobs or keyboard while the
Preload operation is in progress. Never turn off the power during this
You can't execute the Preload operation if Write Protect is turned on. You
must turn off Write Protect before you execute this.
