Description Korg's brilliant sounds in a handy size

The Korg X50 music synthesizer features the HI (Hyper Integrated) sound engine that's used on the world-famous TRITON series. It gives you pro-quality sounds in an ultra-compact body. This keyboard synthesizer delivers unbeatable convenience and enjoyment for live performance or song production.

A rich array of sounds and powerful effects

The 64 MB PCM memory contains a wide range of sounds, including piano, strings, guitar, and synth sounds. With 512 sound Programs, as well as 384 Combinations that let you use up to eight Programs together, you can start enjoying a diverse selection of great sounds right away. The effect section lets you simultaneously use four effects (one insert effect, two master effects, and one EQ), and provides a full selection of effect types such as reverb, chorus, and delay. Best of all, the X50 is compatible with Korgs TR line of music workstations so you can share sounds and songs with Korg users around the world.

Dual arpeggiator makes performance even more fun

An arpeggiator lets you play a variety of phrases using just one finger, and the X50 provides two polyphonic arpeggiators! For example, in Combination mode you can use the two arpeggiators to play drums and bass while you play chords and melody, giving you amazing power for live performances. In addition to five basic preset arpeggio patterns, the X50 also provides an additional 251 patterns containing various phrases. Of course you can also create your own original patterns and store them in internal memory.

Easy operation for immediate use

Finding the right sound quickly when you have so many to choose from can be a problem on some systems, but never Korg's! The X50 organizes its vast array of sounds into sixteen categories, and provides a Category Select function that makes it quick and easy to choose the sound you need from the category you specify. There's also an Audition Riff function that provides one-touch audition of each sound. Four knobs can be used to quickly adjust sounds, effects and arp settings, and the ClickPoint cursor makes the X50 a pleasure to use and play.

Light and compact design for easy portability

The X50 packs professional-quality sounds and a wide range of functions into an amazingly light and compact body. Even with a 61-note keyboard that gives you plenty of room to perform, the X50 boasts an ultra-light weight of only 4.5 kg --- about the same as an electric guitar. The compact design ensures that it can fit into the smallest home studio workspace, and thanks to its cool side handles the X50 is easy to take along wherever you go.

Cutting-edge connections

In a first for its class, the X50 features individual outputs, allowing professional setups in which the sounds of specific parts are sent to their own outputs. This can be very useful in situations such as recording when you may want to EQ and process each sound separately, and for surround-sound applications.

The X50 also provides a USB connector that lets you establish MIDI connections with your computer using a single cable no interface needed. A powerful Multi mode give you 16 parts to create music with, with the full complement of effects and other settings to make complete songs using only the X50 and your computer. 128 Multis can be saved and recalled, with 16 preloaded covering many common music styles and genres.

It also comes with an editor/librarian software that makes it easy to create and organize sounds using your computer. Two versions are provided: a traditional stand-alone application and an innovative plug-in version (VST, AU, and RTAS formats supported) that can run within your DAW and MIDI sequencing software. Both versions are colorful, graphic-rich, and provide a wonderful interface for working with the X50 in all its modes.

1. AUDIO OUTPUT Connect these outputs to the input jacks of your amp or mixer. In addition to the (MAIN OUTPUT) L/MONO and R main stereo audio outputs, the X50 provides two individual audio outputs. MAIN OUTPUT L/MONO, R jack INDIVIDUAL OUTPUT 1, 2 jack

2. PEDALS You can connect a damper pedal, foot switch, and foot pedal to these jacks. This gives you a broader range of functions and effects to control. ASSIGNABLE PEDAL jack ASSIGNABLE SWITCH jack DAMPER jack

3. MIDI lets you connect X50 to computers or other MIDI devices, for sending and receiving notes, controller gestures, sound settings, and so on. MIDI IN connector MIDI OUT connector

4. USB USB connector (for connecting to computer) You can connect your computer to this connector. Using a single USB cable, your X50 can send and receive MIDI information directly to and from a computer, without requiring a MIDI interface. What is USB? USB stands for Universal Serial Bus, and is an interface for transferring data between a computer, a keyboard and/or peripheral devices. Note: The USB connector of the X50 is only able to transmit and receive MIDI data.

5. Power supply Be sure to see Turning the power on/off and follow the correct procedure described there. Power switch This switch turns the power on/off. AC adapter connector Connect this to the included AC adapter. Connections must be made with the power turned off. Please be aware that careless operation may damage your speaker system or cause malfunctions. Cable hook Use this to secure the cable of the included AC adapter. After connecting the AC adapter, fasten the cable around the hook located on the X50's rear panel so that the cable will not be pulled out inadvertently. Leave enough slack on the plug end so that you can disconnect it if you want to.
