If you connect the microX's USB connector to your
computer, you'll be able to send and receive note
data and other performance information and
sound settings between your computer and the
microX as MIDI messages.
Note: The USB connector of the microX is only able
to transmit and receive MIDI data.
Note: Use the KORG USB-MIDI Driver if you're
connecting the microX via USB to a computer that
meets the requirements described in "KORG USB-

Local Control On settings
Turn on the Echo Back function of the external
MIDI/USB sequencer or computer (so that data
received at MIDI IN will be re-transmitted from
MIDI OUT/USB), and turn off the microX's Local
Control setting (so that microX's keyboard and
tone generator will be internally disconnected).
When you play the keyboard of the microX, the
musical data will be transmitted to the external
MIDI sequencer or computer, and then echoed
back to play the microX tone generator. In other
words, by turning Local Control OFF, you can pre-
vent notes from being sounded in duplicate, as
would otherwise occur if a note were sounded by
the microX's own keyboard and again by the data
that was echoed-back.
If the arpeggiator function is on, playing the
microX's keyboard will not cause the arpeggiator
to operate, and only the musical data produced by
playing the keyboard will be transmitted. The
arpeggiator will operate only in response to the
notes that are echoed-back and received at MIDI
IN. In this way, turning off Local Control prevents
the arpeggiator from operating in duplicate.
Use this setting when you wish to record on the
external MIDI sequencer or computer only the
notes that trigger the arpeggiator, and to use the
