I very recently purchased a Korg X5DR sound module and love it!. I have it hooked up to a Yamaha DX5 synthesizer (and to an Alesis Nanopiano - it makes for a great layered sound). I do not use a computer or a sequencer with this equipment. I simply play "live" with a band or solo. I'm a novice when it comes to using the X5DR and hope my brothers and sisters out there can help me. I would like to combine certain program sounds to form new sounds. Can this be done (and saved) in the Korg X5DR's "Multi-Mode"? This would be incredibly exciting for me. If so, please take the time to describe the steps that are involved. I have a feeling that this would call for me to adjust certain settings (i.e., push a few buttons that I've never touched before) on the Yamaha DX5. I really can't wait to hear from you, and thanks, again, for the education.

After reading all the reviews here, I decided to buy one of these little things...I've had it one day and I'm Very Impressed.

There are some realy good sounds in here, piano is a bit weak but good when mixed with strings. Choirs excellent, Some of the GM set are a bit bad, the combinations are excellent.

I've not had a play with filters and effects yet, but for £230 you can't go wrong with this lovely box.

The X5DR (IMHO) is the absolute best value for the money as far as modules are concerned. It sounds amazing and is easy to use, which is worth something in itself. But what really rocks is the wealth of banks available for the X5DR- there's a sound for everything! It's great to fire up the old 01/w banks and play them...brings back memories. Some of the Korg-made banks are GREAT, espically collection 4- it contains 100 orchestral sounds, and at least 2 of them are used in all of my compositions. They're all over the internet, and make a great synth even better.

Odd, the x5d doesn't have glide/portamento weird since my standard x5 does have polyphonic portamento.. That's plain weird.

Great string/general midi instrument and my only PCM based synth I still own. Well I do own an rm1x but it's a sequencer. Great price to performance too, these are fairly powerful and fairly inexpensive too, can't go wrong with a korg.
