Hide thumbs


1. When using headphones, plug them into the
headphones jack located on the front panel.
Use the [VOLUME] knob to adjust the volume
of the headphones. The microX's headphone
jack carries the same signal as the (MAIN
OUTPUT) L/MONO and R output jacks.
Note: If you want to monitor the (INDIVIDUAL
OUTPUT) 1 and 2 jacks in addition to the main
outputs, an external mixer may be required.

Connecting a damper pedal,
foot switch, or foot pedal
By connecting an optional damper pedal, foot
switch, or foot pedal, you can control even more
functions and effects.
Connecting a damper pedal
This pedal can provide a damper effect as you
play. This instrument also supports half-damping.
Here's how to connect an optional Korg DS-1H
damper pedal to the DAMPER jack and use it to
control the half-damper effect.
1. Connect an separately sold DS-1H damper
pedal to the DAMPER jack.
You'll be able to control the half-damper effect
if you've connected the DS-1H. If you've
connected a different switch-type pedal, it will
function as a damper switch.
2. After you turn on the power, set the switch
polarity and adjust the half-damper response to
ensure that the half-damper pedal works
correctly. (☞PG p.77, 80)
Connecting a foot switch
If you connect an on/off-type foot switch such as
the Korg PS-1 pedal switch to the ASSIGNABLE
SWITCH jack, you can use it to turn the sostenuto
or soft pedal effect on/off, to turn the arpeggiator
on/off, to switch programs or combinations, to
control tap tempo, or to apply modulation to a
sounds or an effect.
This switch will always function in the same way
regardless of the program, combination, or multi
set you've selected. You can assign the function in
the Global mode 0: System, Foot page.
1. Connect a foot switch such as the separately
sold PS-1 to the ASSIGNABLE SWITCH jack.
2. After turning the power on, use GLOBAL 0:
System, Foot page "Foot SW Assign" and "Foot
SW Polarity" to assign the function controlled
by the foot switch and to specify the polarity.
