I'm quite surprise that not so manay people give a good comment about X5D, I already use it for more than one year, its very rugged and road worthy for me.. I also have Trinity, i3, and XP-80, but for touring or stage and every performance I always use my X5D. I know, it's small, light and has no aftertouch, I eveb don't like the action when I just bought it, but as soon as I programmed the sound and get use to the key, I'm really in love with this little synth. well, just to give my opinion, this little synth is hreat and really powerfull if you know how to really dig it... this little baby is a keep.

I have had my X5D for 2 months now....I also use a Korg N364. I like the X5D becuase it is small and has a VERy good price. I have found that it is limited in the number of patches it can store(only 100 RAM & 136 GM), but then again, I am used to the N364 which has over 500 patches. This is a small thing as I can store an infinate number of patches on my computer thanks to the handy PC interface. The sound of this board is amazing. It sounds every bit as good as the N364.

To get the most out of this synth, you really must have a computer. I use this thing a lot becuase it is so light and compact. I can take it anywhere. I just wish they had put an aftertouch response on the keyboard! I use either the mod wheel or a foot pedal to control aftertouch and it is pain!

Overall, I would have to say the the X5D is a very good board for live P/A performance. I find myself using it instead of the N364 because it is so lightweight. I highly recommend the X5D. Great machine!

This is obviously a great synth, especially considering the price. I haven't bought X5 or X5D yet and i'd like to know which one i should buy? I mean is the difference worth the extra $200? I sure could use the 64-voice polyphony on X5D though... (please e-mail me if you have an opinion)

A nice synth for begginers. My view in the X5D vs. N-Series thing is leaning towards the N series becuase its construct more solidly for one thing. Hasn't failed me for a gig so far though...

A fine little keyboard if you're into classical sounds. GM sounds are almost perfect, but the synthy tones sound a little dated to me. I would think this synth came out in the 80's, but still a great bargain for the price.
