61-Key Portable Music Synthesizer with USB MIDI
Based on the proven TRITON engine, the X50 adds 16-part multi setups for use with computer sequencing, as well as a dedicated USB computer port.
The Software editing package can be run Stand-alone, or as a Plug-in from your favorite DAW system. Korg has taken the proven Hyper Integrated (HI) sound engine that powered their world-famous TRITON series and placed it in a compact body to create the portable, affordable X50 Music Synthesizer. Using Korg's ClickPoint controller along with Category Search and Audition Riffs, finding the right sound is a snap.
Dual polyphonic arpeggiators and four effects (1 Insert, 2 Master, 1 Master EQ) keep the sound jumping. Individual outputs and a dedicated USB port provide solid connections wherever you play - and at less than a yard long and under ten pounds, that can be anywhere!
