Sidekick Synth for your rig

By X50guy

from Montclair, CA

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

I spent about 2 hours in store playing this synth. I have read and review all the specs from Korg.com, so I went in and try this baby. In conclusion, I will definitely approve our church proposal to buy this synth. Here's why: We have several keyboards in our church, Motif ES, Trinity and A90EX. Tis will fit nicely as the fourth keyboards that soon will replace the ol'faithful Trinity. We just have to have the "Korg" sound in our rig. This keyboard is perfect for our traveling ministry, too, it is light and compact. And as a long-time Korg user (from SG1D era) Korg has proven their instrument to be "road-tested", rugged and reliable. I believe this X50 will stand the test of time. It has several "fresh" sound in them, that will definitely boost your creativity in the stage or in the recording studio. It also has easy connection and setup with computer and your DAW. For the price, it's worth the money. If you mainly work with the computer or don't need a recorder/sampler, than this is a perfect buy. You will have enough sound to play with, all of them great sounding.

One word.....AWESOME

By cubemaster27

from Arizona

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

The first thing I noticed was how considerably light this beast is! I love the techno capabilities this beast has, especially Chord Memory and Late Night Jam settings, the only bad thing I can think of about this, is the screen is extremely fragile being a LCD screen and all, but other than that this beast packs one hell of a punch!

Great add on

By JLean

from Bronx, NY

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

This keyboard was a great add-on. I'm just stepping full on with using hardware for production and this piece helped complete my change. The organs, guitars and basses are my favs but all the sounds are great!

Greatest sounds, and quality for a resonable price!

By JP

from Connecticut

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

I have owned the x-50 since nov. '07 and it is perfect for me. it is light wieght which means I can take it anywhere. But the main reason to buy this keyboard is the sounds. This thing has over 1000 tones on it that you can minipulte and chage to your likeing, and even make combos with. This keyboard is great if you are looking for killer synth and techno sounds. It has a good piano sound, but I wouldn't recomend it for a player that is looking for the top quality piano/grand piano sound. So stop looking for another keyoard! The x-50 is the one!

Great Keyboard

By Joey

from Avondale, AZ

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

I bought this keyboard about 3 months ago specifically for stage. I have always been skeptical of Korg for stage because they have never in the past been as stage friendly as other keyboards such as Roland. This keyboard changed my mind. Not only can it be just as flexible as a triton but with favorites settings the size and weight, you can't beat the combination. I have gotten compliments from our sound tech that this keyboard sounds great in out house. I added this keyboard to my existing Roland 300 sx to create a two tier setup. The combo is great.

Metal! Not just little old lady sounds.

By HomeStudioBuilder

from New England

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

Wow. I never thought I would hear metal guitars in a sound bank, that sound like guitars. We got lucky. We're building a budget studio, and I wasn't budgeted for a synth until next year. Totally on a whim, because of the price, we got a (very inexpensive) 78-key Yamaha with great action and nice but boring sounds-- then we found that it didn't have real MIDI, just song downloads!! So suddenly we were shopping for synth/workstations under about a grand. We got lucky that we heard the x50. This thing has no sequencing -- it's strictly a live player-- but wow, the sounds are incredible. It's not the same old "ultra-high quality"-but-boring sound bank. Yes, we thought it was cheap looking and ugly, yes, we were looking at Yamaha and Roland, yes, we will have to sequence on the computer, but man, oh man, this thing is mean, and we are totally in love with it. It rules. Enough synthesis to tailor a sound to your band, and enough twisted sounds preloaded to keep you up all night. Horns in the air!

80s New wave synth fan

By GaryNumanfan

from Wichita Falls, TX

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

This synthesizer is great. Combi/program banks sound great for all types of music. The only thing I was a bit disappointed with was the construction. I am not a big fan of plastic parts. I am glad I didn't buy a Roland. Korg is known for there diverse range of sounds, aspecially techno and house. The X50 is easy to operate. I wish it had a built in sequencer. Overall I am happy with it. Sincerely, Armand Lotman

1st korg kb, quite handy, full set of instrument voices

By luis

from pharr, texas

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

I bought this keyboard because it looked light and little but with a very complete set of instruments, capacity and features to plug various cables. The bars on its sides are very useful to me and the thickness of the instrument makes it to fit anywhere. Since I am not used to take my keyboard in a case, I just take the keyboard covered on a towel or sheet and carry it with a hand anywhere I want. It has been too long for me to learn all the features that this keyboard have, but I love it, it is my first korg, and I am very satisfied with it.

Great Synth/Wonderful Sounds

By Wade

from Charlotte, NC

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

I had been looking for a synthesizer for a long time. I wanted something with a great variety of high-quality sounds that didn't break my bank. I tried many different synths, even those which were over my budget and I still much preferred the sounds that this thing produced. I also thoroughly enjoy the dual arpeggiators which diversify the sounds/patterns even more. I'm also happy that Korg didn't throw in a cheap recording interface like a few other synth/workstations around this price range have. Overall I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I've been playing it for countless hours, and have yet to see the full potential of the instrument. I highly recommend the Korg X50.

man d*#n

By young swizz (not optimist anymore)

from Monroe,North Carolina

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

i was in the store for about 2 hours playin this. It is crazy hot, it don't even make any since and then it's only $699.99. They shouldn't have done that, they are selling like fast and it's worth it, trust me. The sounds are so perfect, personally crazy for dirty south, techno, r@b, and hip-hop. You could make some hot beats if you're a producer such as me, if you don't have it you just have no clue of what you're missing

Techno Pop music

By GARYNUMANFAN

from WICHITA FALLS, TX

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

Great Synthesizer for the money. I was going to buy a Roland but in my opinion KORG has better products and original patches. When it comes to a variety of music styles you can play with a synth, this is it. I love the 80s electronic music and some techno. The only complaint is I wish this had a built in sequencer so I could record music. The user manual is a bit confusing. It is a fun synth to play. Well worth the money. The hardware is a bit flimsy "to much plastic" overall it is worth the money.

Great Synth!

By JP

from Michigan

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

Just got my X-50 after mulling over the Roland Juno D. Love it so far. Great synth packed in a small, light package! I heard complaints about it feeling "cheap" and I understand where that comes from with the plastic frame, etc. but the sounds, etc. for the price is just amazing! I think it's a great deal!

Clean, realistic sounds

By Just snipped

from Olathe, KS

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

I'm an amatuer when it comes to synths but have been extremely pleased with the unit. One exception would be that too many of the electro robot sounding drums added to the presets. These can easily be tweaked down individually with the easy to use interface. (they have a fancy name for it but I can't remember) Another complaint would be the lack of a built in sequencer. Maybe it has one and I haven't found it yet but pretty sure it's not there. I give it 5 stars for design, features and price.

Amazing sound!

By Nicki Skipper

from Bennington, Vermont

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

This keyboard sounds amazing, and you can't beat it for portability. I was reluctant to let go of my 88 weighted keys, and the smaller keys take some getting used to, but the piano and organ sounds are so good that I leave my heavy keyboards in the rehearsal space and take this one instead. It is easy to navigate...learning how to write and save changes took a little time and the manual isn't perfectly clear, but it's better than most. The only "con" for me was that there is was no tone list included, and I couldn't find one anywhere on line. I took the time to create a tone list of my own, which made navigating things a lot easier.

Korg X50 review

By HolyCanoly

from Massachusettes

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

This is a fine synth, comming with 512 sounds generated by the HI (hyper integrated) synthesis system from the Korg Triton. 384 different Combis, all including 8 programs. Multi-effect section with 4 processors. There is a 4 channel audio output, with dual polyphonic arpeggiators. there is one USB socket for MIDI connection, and Standalone and plug-in sound-editing software in VST, AU and RTAS formats. This synth is perfect if you need to be mobile with it seeing as how it weighs only 4.3kg (appx. 9lbs). This synth is great for beginners and professionals alike. I strongly reccomend the X50.

Great Sounds

By Larry

from Tampa

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

This synth is exceptionally powerful for the price. The sounds are what you would expect from a Triton-derived product, exceptionally high quality. Remember that the X50 is based on the TR and Le lines, so it only has 1 insert effect instead of the 5 of it's big brothers, and of course it doesn't have a sequencer. Otherwise this IS a Triton. The case and keyboard has a bit of a cheap feel, but remember the price. If you want a Triton, but don't want to spend a ton of money, this is the synth for you. If you mostly record in a studio or through a computer, this synth will give you incredible sounds for an incredible price. You might even be able to gig with it, the unit is feather-light.

Tried em both and loved em

By Aria D

from Friant CA

Comments about Korg X50 61-Key Synthesizer:

Actually I first bought the MicroKorg which still I have to say I would favor, as it has a beautiful red easy to read LCD. I'm not sure why Korg Didn't use that same display on the X50. Also the MicroKorg has the nice joystick type pitch and mod (very nice) There were also many more creative sounds in the Micro. I loved the white color with the red LCD. It looked Hot in my studio. But All in all I ended up with the X50 as the Microkorg was a Demo model and had been pretty abused, so I took it back and got the X50. It too is an amazing synth. Such Rich, Fat, New sounds...Can't stop playing it!
