A small addition to what Benny wrote: The N5 does NOT have resonance filters. The fourth knob is for the FX amount of a sound. Furthermore, these knobs are assignable, you just switch between A/R/C/F or the assigned functions. The keyboard itself has gotten better - when you think of the N5 as the direct successor of the X5/X5D. It has only channel aftertouch, but it plays a lot better than the X5's keyboard. However, this is a worthy successor of the X5D. I probably will sell mine and get the N5! :-)

I bought it today and I must say that it´s really fantastic.

The N5 has all the sounds you´ll ever need

(1269 programs, 812 samples) whatever music your

making/playing and they are all excellent

(except maybe for the acoustic piano´s).

Eight of the programs (2 osc.) can be combined in a &quot;COMBI&quot;

which in multi-mode functions exactly as a singly program.

There is a resonance filter but only as an effect.

Except for the overwhelming sounds there are good

modulationpossibilities with four assignable knobs and aftertouch.

There are also a pretty good arpeggiator for realtimeplaying...

I can thing of tousands of great features,

but to make a long story short -

Korg N5 is clearly the missing link

between Yamaha cs1x and high-quality.

A few weeks ago I bought my N5. I wasn't especially impressed in the beginning, but as I "got to know it", I started loving it more and more. It works great with Cakewalk (tough it's a hell of a job writing down all the instruments for a INS file). My music becomes more "thick" and complete... (I love the strings and the choirs)

I purchased a N5 a few days ago and I must say that I've never seen more keyboard for your money anywhere else. With 12 megabytes of waveforms in the ROM, 99 effects, and tons of realtime controls, the possibilities for the creation of sound are endless. More info for new owners/possible owners: The N1 is almost exactly the same keyboard, except it has 88 weighted keys, instead of 61 "keyboard" keys, and costs about $500 more. The NSR5 is a watered down version of the N5, and costs about $200 less. I purchased the N5 because I love the realtime controllers that the NSR5 doesn't have. I paid $750 for my N5 (5/2/98) and I think that's a pretty good deal, considering retail is $1100. I'd like to exchange tips with others who own an N5. If someone would like to chat, please email me.

I believe it's strongest assets are the intense and thick soundscapes that can be created. There aren't really any good 'synthlike' sounds or heavy basses. But the soundscapes, pads, strings and choirs are worth killing for! I can't think of any better synth for that amount of money! By the way, are there any swedes out there who has bought it? Would love to email-exchange!
