Main features
High-quality sound featuring the HI
synthesis system
The X50 Music Synthesizer features Korg's
acclaimed HI (Hyper Integrated) synthesis sys-
tem.
The HI (Hyper Integrated) synthesis system is a
PCM tone generator system with extensive modu-
lation and effect routing capabilities, as well as full
digital signal processing that guarantees a rich,
pristine sound.
Tone generator section:
• 64 MB of preset PCM ROM containing 470 mul-
tisamples and 518 drumsamples.
• The sampling frequency is 48 kHz, and the
maximum polyphony is 62 voices.
Filter/synthesis section:
• 24 dB/oct Low Pass Resonance type or 12 dB/
oct Low Pass & High Pass type filters can be
used. A wide variety of filter effects can be
achieved, from active sounds with aggressive
resonance to subtle tones using a high pass fil-
ter.
• A broad range of editing parameters gives you
control over every aspect of the sound.
Effect section:
• One insert effect (stereo-in/stereo-out), two
master effects (mono-in/stereo-out), and a
three-band master EQ (stereo-in/stereo-out)
can all be used simultaneously. You can select
from 89 types of effect algorithms, and edit
them.
• Highly flexible effect routing is possible. Effects
can also be routed freely to the individual out-
puts.
Alternate Modulation and Effect Dynamic
Modulation:
• The synthesis section (filter etc.) provides Alter-
nate Modulation functionality, and the effect
section provides Effect Dynamic Modulation
functionality. This allows you to freely apply
modulation to parameters that affect the pitch,
filter, amp, EG, LFO, effects etc.

Introduction

• LFO and delay time parameters can be syn-
chronized to MIDI clock/tempo. You can syn-
chronize sounds or effects to the tempo of the
sequencer or the arpeggiator.
A great selection of 512 programs
In the Program mode, the X50 provides 512 user
programs, plus 128 programs + 9 drum sets for
GM compatibility.
When shipped from the factory, it is loaded with
high-quality programs that cover a wide range of
musical needs.
Programs using multisamples that pro-
vide a broad range of sounds
Based on 470 different multisamples that deliver a
broad range of sounds ranging from acoustic
instruments such as piano, guitar, and trumpet, to
synthesizer sounds or sound effects (oscillator),
the preset programs provide a rich variety of edit-
able parameters (filter and amp), effects, and
arpeggiators.
Drum programs that support any style
of rhythm part
Based on 40 user drum kits and nine GM2-com-
patible ROM drum kits, and taking full advantage
of numerous editable parameters, effects, and
arpeggiators, the X50 provides a great selection of
preset programs for any style of music.
The drum kits that are the basis of each drum pro-
gram allow you to freely map any of the 518 drum
or percussion sounds to each note of the keyboard.
You can also create your own drum kits, and even
specify filter and amp settings, effect settings, and
individual audio output routings for each separate
key.
