OVERVIEW

Stylish and stage-ready in cool camo!

The Korg X50CF 61-Key Synthesizer is a limited-edition camouflage version of the X50 synth and comes packed with the same distinctive and world-renowned TRITON-based sounds as its more understated brother. The X50CF synthesizer is designed for easy and intuitive operation, and has an ultra-light and compact design ideal for the active musicians, song-hunters, or rock music enthusiasts.

Korg's brilliant sounds in a handy size
The Korg X50CF 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 64MB 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 X50CF is compatible with Korg's 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 X50CF 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 X50CF 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 not with the X50CF. It organizes 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 X50CF a pleasure to use and play.

Light and compact design for easy portability
The X50CF 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 X50CF 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 X50CF is easy to take along wherever you go.

Cutting-edge connections
In a first for its class, the X50CF 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 X50CF 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 X50CF and your computer. 128 Multis can be saved and recalled, with 16 preloaded covering many common music styles and genres.

The X50CF also comes with 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 X50CF in all its modes.

Incredibly Creative...

By C-Hutch

from middle / south Georgia

If you are looking for a smaller, cheaper keyboard which will inspire you to play more and be creative, you can't go wrong with the Korg X50. I sold mine recently, and wish everyday that I hadn't! The combination patterns are incredibly inspiring, and the sounds are very good. Basically with this keyboard you've got the original Triton sound engine, plus more arpeggios and sounds! I am serious, as a regularly performing keyboardist and studio owner, I have yet to find a keyboard that was this much fun to simply plug in and play! Don't go by the appearance or size of this keyboard. The sounds are where it's at with this instrument. My only beef with this keyboard (and other Korg keyboards) is that the 'Y' has a tendency to go out. This has happened with two Korg keyboards I've owned, and I would highly recommend Korg getting that problem seen about, because other than that flaw, Korg keyboards are simply great for the money.

Awsome deal!!!

This thing is a great deal for the money. The number of things you can edit, and how many different ways there are to manipulate the tones...endless experimenting in this thing.

Green is the new black...

By SeaTunes

from Seattle

Ok, I got the CF to save $150 over the standard X50. The camo design is beginning to grow on me. It's darker and more subdued than the promo photos - it actually looks pretty good with my predominantly black equipment.I agree with most of the X50 comments. The soundsand capabilities of this board make it a great value. I think the key action is ok, certainly better than some of the reviewers have suggested. USB connectivity is great for new computers that don't have a game/midi port. I found the manual to be pretty comprehensive but written as a reference, not a user guide. I spent a couple hours with it and typed some notes on the quirks and features that are important to me and I'm set.One nice update in my firmware (that came with separate documentation) provides the ability to set up to 10 patches for quick-access - sort of a bookmarking capability.The one feature that I do miss from my previous (20 year old KC10) synth, and maybe it's buried somewhere in the manual, is the ability to easily write and play drum lead-ins, fills and endings. Otherwise I'm very happy with it.
