FREQ (Frequency) ...........................................................[0.01...100.0Hz]
Specifies the frequency of the LFO. Increasing this value will result in a
faster frequency.
This parameter will be displayed and can be set only if "BPM SYNC" is
NOTE
OFF.
SYNC.NOTE........................................................................... [8/1...1/64]
This specifies the ratio of the LFO frequency relative to the tempo specified
by the [TEMPO] knob. The specified value (note value) corresponds to one
cycle. For example if this is set to 1/4, one cycle of the LFO will occupy one
beat. If this is set to 3/4, one cycle of the LFO will occupy three beats.
This parameter will be displayed and can be set only if "BPM SYNC" is
NOTE
ON.
PATCH 1, PATCH 2, PATCH 3, PATCH 4, PATCH 5,
PATCH 6
To let you create even more sophisticated sounds, the microKORG XL+
provides six virtual patches. Each patch consists of three parameters: the
source of the modulation ("SOURCE"), the destination to which that modu-
lation will apply ("DEST"), and the intensity of that modulation effect
("INTENSITY"). You can produce a variety of changes in the sound by com-
bining these parameters. For example by setting "SOURCE" to LFO2,
"DEST" to CUTOFF1, and specifying the amount of effect using "INTEN-
SITY," you can produce a cyclic change in tone (wah effect) produced by
LFO2.
Virtual Patch
On modular analog synthesizers, the input or output of each module (oscil-
lator, filter, amp, EG, LFO, and other controllers) could be connected
("patched") by a patch cord to any other module as desired, allowing you a
great deal of freedom in creating the sound. The Korg MS Series (MS-20,
MS-50, MS-10, etc.) went on sale in 1978 and featured this type of patch-
ing. The microKORG XL+ lets you perform this patching "virtually" (i.e.,
without using physical patch cords), so you can assign sources such as EG
or LFO to the most important parameters (destinations).
SOURCE............................................................................ [EG1...MIDI3]
Selects a modulation source.
EG1, EG2, EG3
EG1, EG2, or EG3.
LFO1, LFO2
LFO1 or LFO2.
VELOCITY
Keyboard velocity (playing dynamics).
P.BEND
Pitch bend.
MOD.WHEEL
Modulation wheel.
Keyboard tracking (position).
NOTE
KEY TRK
The function specified for the MIDI.CTRL
MIDI1, MIDI2, MIDI3
page parameters "MIDI1," "MIDI2," or "MIDI3."
DEST (Destination).........................................................[PITCH...P.INT6]
Selects the parameter (destination) that will be controlled by the modula-
tion. For example if you select Tune, modulation will be applied to the over-
all pitch of the timbre.

Parameter Guide
Keyboard tracking works according to
the pitch as controlled by pitch bend,
transpose, and modulation sequencer.
It does not reflect pitch changes pro-
duced by vibrato or virtual patching.
