Product Description

Korg X50

 61-key synthesizer is an easy-to-move, lightweight, and affordable instrument. Korg X50 delivers 512 professional-quality sound programs produced by the HI synthesis system from the acclaimed TRITON series. Korg X50 has 470 multisamples, 518 drum samples, 16-part multitimbral, dual polyphonic arpeggiators, and 384 combinations constructed of up to eight programs each. The powerful effect section of Korg X50 has four separate processors: one for insert effects, two for master effects, and one master EQ processor. Multi Mode allows the X50 to be played from an external sequencer as a sound module. Korg X50 also has 4-channel audio output, a USB port, and plug-in sound-editing software that allows you to tweak and program the X-50 even from within your DAW software.

Features

Korg-quality sounds in a compact size
The Korg X50 uses the same HI synthesis engine that has powered the best selling Triton Series. What's more, many of the sounds in the X50's 64MB of sample and waveform ROM have come directly from the Triton, so you know this is going to be a great-sounding instrument. Yet for all its sonic firepower, Korg X50 is compact and lightweight, so you can take it with you and make music when the inspiration hits you.

61-note keyboard with 62-note polyphony
The Korg X50 comes with a fast, velocity sensitive, synth action 61-note keyboard. An octave shift function allows for easy access to a full range of bass and treble notes. And while many of the very best (and most expensive) keyboards in the past limped along with 8, 16 or even 24-note polyphony, the X50 can play 62 notes at the same time. Meaning you can lean on the keyboard with both arms and still have one more note available. This is particularly handy when using the X50 in multi-timbral mode. Note stealing is now a non-issue!

512 programs and 384 combinations
You can have the best raw samples and waveforms, but Korg X50 takes a very talented programmer to make the most out of the raw data. Fortunately, Korg's team of sound designers and programmers are some of the very best in the industry. Which is why the X50 comes with a full 512 programs and 384 combinations that include some powerful splits and layers.

Powerful studio-quality effects section
Korg has always had some stunning effects. As far back as their analog PolySix, exceptional effects have been a Korg trademark. The effects selection on the X50 are as good as anything we've heard in a long time. What's really exciting is that you can use up to four effects at a time. From rich reverbs to lush chorus to spacey flanging and beyond, you won't find yourself wishing for an external processor. Yes, they're that good!

Dual polyphonic arpeggiators and more
Among our favorite features on the X50 are the dual polyphonic arpeggiators. These are light years ahead of the old up, down and up/down arpeggiators of the past. If you don't find some inspiration here, you probably shouldn check your pulse! Other great features of Korg X50 include editing software (standalone and plug-in), USB connectivity, a four-channel audio output and much, much more.
