Great keyboard! Enjoy many of the patches. Some of the digital pianos are a bit bland, but you can combi them up. Try mixing up the the Tine Pad with the GM Digipiano. Great sound!

Keyboard feels great--semi-weighted...alot better than the 01wpro.

Sequencer is powerful. Easy to use and easy to understand.

Only drawbacks: Small screen, limited use of efx for the sequencer.

-The &quot;Word Piano&quot; sample is very good , but the organ samples are medium quality

-I miss separated track effects , in X2 possible the 16 tracks only together .

-For background excellent.(If I have good eyesight The Gipsy Kings use this)

Good Work....

Damned machine is still my fav enen though I own 8 other synths, including the bloody damning Trinity! Still cannot figure why I love the X2 best. Must try the EFX patches and experiment with it, gave me a Chemical Brothers' &quot;Block Rockin' Beats&quot; style of drum loops programming and something a little more. Run the Output thru a Distortion unit and see the maddness in the machine. And try using up to 6 tracks on the sequencer and mixing different drum sets sounds, and you will understand the meaning of :&quot;The only limits are the limits of your imagination&quot;. MIDI settings are so damned, I use the X2 as my master controller with my modules as well! Share more info with me if you have any extras. Five marks is not enough! Give this synth a 10! The Trinity on the other hand has got it's own uniqueness, but then again... X2 is still the centre of my collection! Love the feel of the keys best. The nearest is the Fatar 610 PLUS. (Tip: buy this MIDI controller if your X2 keys has crapped on you&quot;. Saved my ass once. Ha ha ha..... ENJOY!

I´ve been playing at X2 during two years and it´s the best synth I ever had.

Sounds like X2 piano, A83 (Hardtimes piano) and A21 (gospel organ) are terrific and

hard to found in others keyboards. When I bought my X2 it was a fever of Roland JV 1000

between my friends and all of those guys became crazy when they discovered how

easy was to record on X2.

There´s only one thing I don´t like : the disk drive working on DD ! It could be HD !

Let me tell you a little story. This might sound familiar.

I bought an X2 about a year and a half ago. I have programmed

many cool sequences and made many cool sounds with it. I am finding the basic sample waveforms to be quite

annoying. I've started writing bigger, more complex songs and now

I'm running out of polyphony. My X2 is now only worth half what I

paid for it, and now you can get the 64 voice version (N264) that

has RPS and an arpeggiator for about $400 LESS than what I paid

for my X2 when I bought it new. I feel like I got shafted by Korg.

At least synth technology doesn't evolve as fast as computers do...

A word of advice: Don't buy this synth. Get a N364 for the same price. Or a N1/N5. I will forever remember those 6 months of paying this thing off.

Now I feel like trading it in for something better. Don't get me wrong though!

It is a good workstation overall. The sequencer is pretty easy to operate.

The sounds can be manipulated into reasonably cool textures. I find

the drum sounds to be rather wimpy (except power toms). It's a good place

to start for a first workstation. Now it's not worth much more than $800 or $900.
