Overview

The 61-key Korg M50 Workstation weighs in at just 15 lbs and delivers incredible sounds. This fiery music workstation brings fat and juicy combinations, splits and layers, a plethora of ace effects, dynamic drum tracks, enhanced poly-arpeggiators, classic sequencing tools, a solid and confident keybed, up-to-date SD (secure digital) storage, companion editing software, and Korg's TouchView interactive display to the show. It all adds up to an invigorating and sexy keyboard instrument that could only come from Korg.

This Korg's for everyone
Over twenty years of category-defining workstation expertise beats in the heart of the Korg M50 music workstation. Just as Korg's M3 borrowed elements from the legendary OASYS, the M50 captures all the sonic firepower of the M3, distilled into a real performance instrument. The Korg M50 may just be the keyboard you've been waiting for. This 61-note version sports a semi-weighted Natural Touch keyboard that is fast and responsive in facilitating expressive and dynamic synthesizer performing.

A natural performer
Made to be played, the Korg M50 is inviting and comfortable. The TouchView screen is intuitive and interactive, so the uniquely angled front panel remains refined and uncluttered. The buttons themselves are rock solid, backlit, and rounded for visibility and ease-of-use under any playing conditions. In addition to Korg's 4-way joystick and multi-function knobs, the M50 offers 4 Chord Triggers that provide a flexible and fun way to play chords and to trigger arpeggio patterns. A 10-key numeric keypad gives instant on-demand access to sounds, combinations, and other parameters and values.

Also instantly available in the Korg M50 61-Key Workstation are hundreds of drum track patterns, and over a thousand arpeggiator patterns, including chord grooves, picking-patterns, and more that add punch and pizzazz to your performance, providing hours of inspiration.

Comments about Korg M50 61-Key Workstation - Limited Edition Red:

Bought one of these (yellow)as a second keyboard. This is a great pro synth. Many great built in sounds and combinations, but if you want to tweak them to your liking the possibilities are practically endless! The only drawback I found is the piano choices, not as authentic as I thought I'd get from a new Korg, but then again you can modify them as well.
